Learn about the indulgence of software in our everyday lives.

As Marc Andreessen wrote back in 2011, software really is eating the world. Internet companies like Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, and Google have become part of the fabric of everyday life.

We’ve seen habits that are centuries old change overnight with the introduction of taxi-hailing applications, such as Uber and Lyft, and food delivery applications such as DoorDash. It’s even becoming more likely that you’ll meet your future partner by swiping right rather than approaching strangers in public.
