Nick Carr tries out the Dvorakian troll

Nick Carr tries out the Dvorakian troll: Here’s my theory: Having learned the finer points of trolling from that video Dave Winer shot (BitTorrent, YouTube), Nick Carr tries out the Dvorak method himself.

Quote:

“The Macintosh’s market share among the technological elite is far, far higher than its share among the unwashed…(but)…like most elites, (the technological elite) is an image-obsessed conformist clique that defines itself by material tokens – in this case, the gadgetry it wields. A Windows PC is the machine of the commoner; it has no place in the court. There are suddenly signs, however, that the Mac may be losing its exalted place on the laps of the tech monarchy – not to Windows (perish that thought), but to Linux. The main reason the elite despises Windows is because it’s so damn popular. A move away from the Mac would, in the same way, signal that the Mac has become too popular – that it no longer signifies status.”

Dvorak, eat your heart out.
