one worry I have in writing this essay is taking Snow’s ideas too seriously
The worst thing I read this year, and what it taught me… or Can we design sociotechnical systems…
Ethan Zuckerman

Please don’t be worried about that — I have seen and heard so many people working in tech (and yes, many/most of them in SV) who have exactly this mindset. I’ve personally been struggling to express why I feel it’s so misguided. This essay is incredibly valuable as a resource for responding to them, and because _they_ take their ideas so seriously it’s important to treat them as such to hold their attention.
