Ok, so on several political and social issues, i agree with Bill, but obviously, he's just as detatched as most other tech inept in the media and politics.
Quoted from his radio broadcast:
I don’t own an iPod. I would never wear an iPod… If
this is your primary focus in life - the machines… it’s going to have a
staggeringly negative effect, all of this, for America… did
you ever talk to these computer geeks? I mean, can you carry on a
conversation with them? …I really fear for the United States because, believe me, the jihadists? They’re not playing the video games. They’re killing real people over there.
So, being computer literate somehow means you can't carry on a conversation? That knowing something about tech, somehow puts us at a disadvantage on the War against Terror?? (although, i do like that he dissed on teh iPud)
Computer geeks? You sound like the 'popular jocks' in High School who now, when i see them, ask me 'Paper or Plastic?'
Bill, you should know better.
The best example that show's he has no idea what's going on in the tech world, is his OWN website. Notice that familiar white mp3 player at the bottom left of his page advertizing podcasts? ...
As my good friend Phr0st commented on the post below: 'Don't mess with the interwebs.' I have no doubt that Bill will get plenty of crap about this one.
Lesson: Don't piss off the geeks!
