Technoconservatism

The technology industry is meant to be inventing the future. That requires keeping an open mind: it's not a given that something new will work - or won't. Everything is an experiment, and sometimes the technologies and ideas that change the world are half a nudge away from something that didn't work at all. That means that neuroplasticity, a sense of play, and optimism are all key skills.

Unfortunately, it's really easy to let them slip, both on the business and the technology side. And the more we let go of this, the more we fall …

Since the ICO "sector" is full of scammers, I wouldn't recommend anyone to use ICOs for any real products. You'd be instantly associating yourself with scammers!

Indeed! I do think there are legitimate uses, but the optics are awful to say the least, and the whole area smells.
