Call me a logophile, but I miss the good old days of people using adjectives and active verbs to describe the fettuccine Alfredo they ate or the romantic comedy they watched.

The tech community (and that’s my community) needs to be more humble and not pretend that launching a popular photo app qualifies us to solve all the world’s problems. And when advances are made, we need to be sensitive to the fact that those advances can damage the financial lives of others, and be respectful of that reality.
