There are those that believe that you need the experiences of the past and present to build the future. I’m calling bullshit. If you build on the past or present you simply extend the past and present. To build the future, you must let it stand alone. You must build it on top of a whole new platform. You must create whole new segments and spawn whole new eras.
There were so many good quotes in this short piece I found myself highlighting almost three quarters of the page in Instapaper. I'll only include one and urge you to view the original instead.
