I’m not talking about plastic fish that sing along with your iPod (HIGHLY annoying), electric knives, or a subscription to the latest web-based social network cum parallel reality. In most cases, the hype that precedes a tool is so overwhelming that its functional value is lost in its charm appeal. When hype is the driver, the essential step of evaluating a given technology for its functional value is lost. The technology, like other gifts, is evaluated, not hyped or coerced.
