Tech Companies Love Pretending to Save the Planet

The real talent that’s evolved over the last decade in the tech community is not mastery of technology, business models, or building cultures of creativity. Instead, tech’s genius is fostering the unfettered belief that they are “making the world a better place.”
-- Scott Galloway, Medium

Before we define all of Silicon Valley tech as Uber and Lyft, let's not gloss-over the likes of Jensen Huang, founder and CEO (and Oregon State alum!) of Nvidia, Richard Gonzalez, CEO of AbbVie, or our generation's version of Steve Wozniack; Elon Musk. These guys (and many more like them) are actually using technology, business models and cultures of creativity to make our world a better place. Tech is alive and well. So are charlatans.
