A quick 15-minute podcast recorded yesterday about the Prisoner’s Dilemma applied to tech. I first saw it in the Mac dev community in the early 90s. I felt we’d do better if we worked together instead of all of us trying to work with Apple. I had insight into why they didn’t want to work with us. To no avail. Since then I’ve seen pattern repeated many times. It’s a variant of the famous Prisoner’s Dilemma. It’s the reason the open web has trouble keeping critical mass once the big platforms came into existence. Each of us wants to curry favor with Ev or Zuck, so we can be the rich and famous ones. But it never really happens because that isn’t the way it works. We’d all do better if we worked with each other. No matter, there are some good stories to tell. :-)
