A call for revolution against mindless irresponsibility

Jesús Díaz posted last Friday an article on Gizmodo that has been making the rounds on the TechMemes and Diggs of this world. In A Call for Revolution Against Beta Culture, Díaz writes:

Essentially, Díaz proposes that we shed any vestigial sense of responsibility, and blame it all on the greedy companies and the lazy engineers. Because all those (free) beta web apps twisted our fingers to use them. Because Steve Jobs chased us into Apple stores and forced us to buy his iPhones and iPods.

It sounds like Díaz would benefit from having a look at Bruce Sterling’s proposed ethos for the early adopter.
