Take something that’s existed in boring old industry for years, make it a bit shinier, give it a new name, promote it, insinuate that you invented it and that its going to Change the World, and plus the fact that you’re in Silicon Valley and Disrupting Tech or whatever, and profit! That’s how it works and has for years now. That’s the joke I guess.
