(April 26, 2018)When tech companies have trouble keeping up with the new year, they’re more likely to look back and wonder, “What happened to us?”
And that’s understandable, considering the year’s most important technology innovation has been a tech bubble bursting.
But there are signs that those same companies are facing another challenge: keeping up.
Recode’s tech columnist, Andrew W., says it’s hard to get your head around a lot of the headlines that have come out in the last few months.
“It’s a bit like the internet,” W. said.
“It’s hard for you to be focused on the things that matter.
You just want to check out what’s happening.
And then, when that happens, it’s almost impossible to take stock of what’s going on.
So, it becomes a matter of, What can we do now?
What can the industry do to keep up with these new events?”
As a result, W. says, tech companies are looking to keep things on a fast track.
W. writes about some of these changes in an upcoming Recode blog post:Tech companies have started to move more slowly on issues of online harassment, but some remain concerned that the public’s perception of them has become too broad.
W. writes, “This may not be a coincidence.
A lot of this is about what the public sees as bad behavior and how that is perceived.
And the public is more likely than any other group to see it as being a problem.”
