Where technology & philosophy intersect!

I just finished watching Steve Job’s WWDC 2010 keynote address. It sure is a great to be in the business of technology at this time in history. How amazing is it that we have 2 of the most powerful, interesting, creative, cutting edge companies the world has ever seen (Apple & Google) both driving as hard as possible to advance the art & science of mobility and the Internet?

For me, this picture says it all..

As a philosopher come technologist this picture will be forever burned into my consciousness. I, too, believe the greatest products do not come, simply, from the greatest engineers. Great products exist at the cross roads between brilliant technological innovation and the human beings that are destined to use the technology.

Companies that forget the importance of the “liberal arts” in the continuum of technological advancement do so at their own peril.
