I watched HBO's silicon valley, and I learned a thing from it:

It isn't enough to have a good idea, or even the best idea. It isn't enough to take a good idea, or the best idea to market.

Capitalism rewards Exploitation.

If it isn't exploitable, what good is it to a capitalist?

@ajroach42 This is also the theme of my favorite show ever, HBO's "Deadwood," which I cannot recommend highly enough.

@ajroach42 Sounds like what I'm saying when I discourage work on big data or centralized software... Or JavaScript frameworks...

@ajroach42 That's what made me decide that I don't actually want to work as a software engineer.

Well-meaning and profitable exclude the other.
