Is Quora The Dumbest Startup Ever?


No. Not at all. Quora holds great promise, but only when it begins to adhere to stringent marketplace principles that have nothing to do with technology and everything to do with how a dynamic meritocracy of a marketplace is built and managed. Principles established around the 1600s still valid today that precede the advent of technology and apply to analog marketplaces all the same.

And unfortunately, like many other technology companies, the infantile rule of wild-west programmers has led technology startups to build wannabe marketplaces with a growing global audience exploding into an unmanageable and unusable cesspool.

Technology companies must learn how to grow up and learn that to disrupt, not all lessons in life must be tossed overboard, just the ones that are now verifiably untrue. And in doing so, ensure technology does not dictate the course of humanity but improves it.

The theories deployed by technology companies today are, without exception, totalitarian monisms, fundamentally incompatible with the innate plurality of humanity, and thus under the veil of feigned positivity and cheap populism leading to an anthropogenic cascade rather than an expanding fractal of human ingenuity.

From analyzing the workings of policy, capital, and innovation, Georges noticed how these siloed constructs are woefully incompatible with the principles nature deploys to produce regenerative performance. With humanity stuck in a fabric of its own making, Georges set out to reinvent the operating-systems of humanity to fix the theory that determines what humanity can discover, aiming to fundamentally improve human adaptability to nature's entropy.
