My take, or judgment, on these guys is less important — in my opinion — than the underlying social, economic, and technological forces that are pushing them to think this way. It’s not metaphysical or outer space, I don’t think, to suggest that the survival-of-the-fittest/winner-takes-all ethos of the digital economy has become a life philosophy as well.

But I’ll try to write more plainly, as well, if this stuff feels too abstract.
