Solve the Hard Problem

Filed under: Uncategorized — larryang @ 11:45 AM

“Smart people” tackle the “hard” problems, and the hard problems involve a lot of math, “hard” science, and empirical evidence. Well listen, J. Random Hacker, if you’re so goddamn smart, why haven’t you built a tool that makes it easy for people to encrypt their email yet? Why is adoption the major barrier to secure communications? Why haven’t the tools you’ve built evened out the digital divide? Is the hard problem infrastructure scaling or the Traveling Salesman problem, or is the really hard problem dealing with the people you could never get to understand what you’re doing?”

People are motivated by the sense that they are building something. What they’re building does not seem to be particularly important. 

What does seem to matter is that people have a consistent sense that each problem they solve somehow “builds on” the set of problems they have solved in the past.  With this “sense of meaning” intact, people will happily work very hard so long as their other basic needs are taken care of.

Without the “sense of meaning,” no amount of coercion or money will get people to solve problems in a creative fashion.
