“There was a time when academia was society’s refuge for the eccentric, brilliant, and impractical. No longer. It is now the domain of professional self-marketers. As for the eccentric, brilliant, and impractical: it would seem society now has no place for them at all.”

"Their Bionic Eyes Are Now Obsolete and Unsupported." A cautionary tale.

More than 350 blind ppl around the world have Second Sight’s implants in their eyes, after the company files for bankruptcy they find themselves in a world in which the technology that transformed their lives is just another obsolete gadget.
