The Dependable Predecessors of the Tech Superheroes

Last week the Wall Street Journal called for the death of the Tech Superhero, citing the missteps of demigod entrepreneurs such as Elizabeth Holms, Travis Kalanick, Evan Spiegle and Elon Musk. Wish as they may, there will always be an “up and comer” in every field or faith that will quickly be elevated to celebrity status.

People want heroes.

The sin is not in the honoring of modern creatives, it is the absence of proven superheroes of the past. Those from the past help us understand our present and our future.
