It's not about technology

Technology is great, but it’s not the point.
Maybe you’ve got a friend or someone (maybe you) who wants to build an app or some sort of software. They start talking about the technology and the vast possibilities it enables, but they never talk about what’s the reason to use that technology in the first place.
If you happen to be working on a project…
First, ask yourself, what’s the change I want to see in the world?
Then, how can I use technology to leverage that change?
Technology is about leverage, nothing else. So what about start thinking about the thing you want to leverage first? Maybe you don’t need technology after all.
