The Geek Shall Inherit the Earth
Success is random. It didn't used to be. Time was when a college degree meant a good paying job. A start with a big company meant a healthy retirement. The reason we're being flooded with memes and speeches and adverts on the importance of failure is because corporations are crumbling under conformity. No one knows where the next huge idea is coming from, and it is statistically likely to come from a nobody who belongs to no one rather than an employee of a big someone. The outsiders are suddenly in. In control. In place. In demand. Weirdness rising. Inhabit yourself. Stretch yourself. Make more room for your soul. Speak your own language. Write your own books. Bend the world.
