My dad was an inventor, and I think I’ve always had a rosy view of technology, or at least its potential.

I guess I would just say that in general, one of my weaknesses is that I love everything. There’s too much of everything to keep up with it all. I get bored with Silicon Valley technology a lot. I’ve always had much more of a draw to the people who are doing things for love than the people who are doing things for money.

The railroads needed standardized time; as a result, the technology of train travel shaped the way everyone gets up, eats, goes to sleep, calculates age, and, perhaps of no small importance, imagine the world as a whole, ticking reliably, with reliable deviations, according to the beat of one central clock in a physical location.

I think it’s brought the world a lot closer together, and will continue to do that. There are downsides to everything; there are unintended consequences to everything. The most corrosive piece of technology that I’ve ever seen is called television – but then, again, television, at its best, is magnificent.

I have very little respect for the integrity of the trading on the exchange in most stocks. And I have particular disdain for the fact that the SEC has failed to deal with high-frequency traders who are doing nothing more than taking advantage of inside information, a buy or a sell order, because of technology advantages.
