(i'm almost certainly being unfair to this article and its author, who is probably doing something more nuanced and critical than that title suggests. i might find out for sure, if i didn't find the prospect of reading it so unendurably exhausting.)

i reflected for a little while on why i'm so reliably unkind about this sort of thing, and i think what it comes down to - apart from the considerable degree to which i am just a naysaying asshole by nature - is the way that i live inside an industry whose hype cycle has pretty well ensorcelled the whole species.

sure, there's bullshit everywhere. but not every class of bullshit constructs a world we wind up living inside of for decades.

@brennen And a lot of bullshit just fails quickly and quietly, not spectacularly and taking a lot of people with it.
