What Happens When the Software for Our Technology-Dependent Lives Breaks?

I opened up my Pocket to develop my latest “Reads” post a few minutes ago, and got the message you see in the image. For five seconds, I felt like my world had fallen apart. That’s not good.

There are so many different ways I can access the news, but have built the majority of my news consumption around Pocket. It has been invaluable as I come across interesting articles over the course of a day, but do not yet have time to read them. When I get a few minutes, I can go to my Pocket app and read an article or two.

Andreessen-Horowitz, a major venture capital firm, operates under a thesis that software is eating the world. Do we really want that? What do we do when the software breaks?

I don’t know. I’m going to bed.
