Unlocking progress

It’s always been true that the bottleneck to human progress was not the pace of computation on the planet, but the fidelity of interface between humans and tools. The fastest jet will only take you to the wrong destination quicker if the pilot cannot steer precisely.

This is only going to become truer as computation and knowledge available to each human accelerates upwards.

Interface is an under-invested common good for which innovation is hard to create, even more challenging to defend in the market, and progress is essential to our future.
