i’m not sure i’ve ever read a better essay on the uselessness of stuff. you’ve got to read this essay by paul graham from july, 2007:
paul makes an amazing argument on america’s tendency to overvalue stuff, how the value of stuff is decreasing, and how stuff actually costs us more than it is worth. brilliant! as i said earlier, i’m not sure i’ve read a better analysis about the value of stuff. take 6 minutes and read it right now.
i noticed there is no place to comment on his orignal essay site. i would love to hear your comments. post them below.
