The Most Powerful Force In The Universe | TechCrunch
That leads us to the other risk of all of this accumulation of power. Part of the promise of Silicon Valley is indeed its disruptive quality, a quality that becomes significantly harder to maintain in the market when the incumbents are so wealthy and powerful. The latest example of this is live streaming. Meerkat was booted off Twitter, only to be replaced by Twitter’s own acquired startup Periscope. Now Meerkat has to defeat a competitor backed with by the full resources of a $30 billion dollar public company. This just isn’t a startup utopia anymore. [...] Now, we have closed gardens and API access agreements, designed to keep you within the limited experience of our devices and software. [...] Silicon Valley isnt all that different from Wall Street, except we believe that we are helping the world even more than the capitalists and investment bankers. [...] // &!
