When Tim Berners-Lee created the first World Wide Web page in 1990, he wrote: "When we link information in the Web, we enable ourselves to discover facts, creat...e ideas, buy and sell things, and forge new relationships at a speed and scale that was unimaginable in the analogue era."

In that short statement, Berners-Lee predicted search, publishing, e-commerce, e-mail, and social media, all at once, by a single, stroke. The Bitcoin equivalent to that type of prescience by someone who just created something spectacular can be found in Satoshi Nakamato's 2008 paper, "Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System,” arguably the root of modern blockchain-based cryptocurrency innovation.

That is me in the picture in 1993 / 1994- the year Mark Andreesen launched 'Mosiac' while at Silicon Graphics. University of Illinois was unhappy with the company's use of the Mosaic name, so Mosaic changed its name to Netscape Communications, and its flagship Web browser was the Netscape Navigator.

Steve Jobs Always Dressed Exactly the Same.
---------------------------------------------
During the early 1980s when Apple was still a young & dynamic startup ...company, Steve Jobs visited Japan to meet Sony’s chairman Akio Morita for business purpose. As typical it was with Steve, he made random visits to several departments of Sony to get a feel of their work culture and environment and was surprised to find that everyone in the company wore uniforms.

When Steve enquired about this with Morita, he was told that after World War II, most of the employees of Sony did not have any clothes to wear due to which Sony had to provide uniforms to all of them. Over time, the uniforms underwent changes in design & refinement, and although employees were able to afford better clothes for themselves, they still stuck on to the uniforms because it became a way of bonding all of them in the company.

That was when Steve made up his mind to implement something similar in Apple as well to nurture employees and create a bonding. He got in touch with the designer named Miyake who had designed uniforms for Sony and requested him to come up with sample designs of vests for Apple employees. When Steve returned to Apple Office with the samples and announced his intention of implementing uniforms, he was booed off the stage as it was hated by everybody in his company due to which he had to drop the idea.

But the idea had stuck to him and he wanted a uniform for himself, if not for his employees. He requested Miyake to design a uniform for daily usage which could convey his signature style of simplicity and in return he got hundreds of black turtlenecks which he started using as his 24/7 attire.

Just a few months before his death, Steve, during an interview with Walter Isaacson (his authorized biographer) showed his closet which was filled with hundreds of turtlenecks and had said “That’s what I wear. I have enough to last for the rest of my life.”

That’s how the turtleneck became Steve Jobs’ signature attire.

Pakistan is a fascinating place - the contradictions are glaring but the promise is great. Ironically what may be good for Pakistan may at least in the short term not be good for furtherance of our (USA) policy goals.
We (USA) need to take a long view and it may be worthwhile to cut our losses, uncouple from the ruling elite and align our self with popular grassroots sentiment in the country. This would change our perception in the short term and when change does come we, for a change, will be on the "right side".
