Here’s a nice story on technology that isn’t startups: Unhappy truckers and other algorithmic problems. Logistic networks are a technology, just like smartphones. They make our world way better, but they do so invisibly and at a slower pace than the churn of mobile apps, web frameworks, and startups. But they’re still solving problems, moving the needle. They’re just, possibly, less obsessed with technology tribalism and fashion. Some days, that seems like a pretty useful space to find oneself in.
