In Forbes, Greg Satell on tech stories.
We can further understand the relationship between technology and story through another Heidegger essay called Building Dwelling Thinking, where makes the almost tautological—but not quite obvious—point that to build for the world you must first understand what it means to live in it. Stories are how we make sense of what we encounter in the world.
And that, I think gets to the heart of the matter. Technology, when properly understood, is far more than the product of algorithms, microscopes, test tubes and other apparatus, but the revealing of truths in the service of human life. And so, the endeavor can only reach its highest level with humans—and their stories—at its center.
