    Tell that to the philosophers who said Grand Meta-Narratives (i.e. Postmodernism) are dead!

    In all seriousness, Larry makes the great point that we're in an age where engineering, programming, storytelling, language, and philosophy coincide for highly practical purposes. Ideation becomes reality - directly improving the lives of people in a lot of ways (fun, humor, knowledge, learning). We're sometimes prone to forget that - heads down crunching code as we sometimes are. We're also prone to sometimes forget how encompassing such language systems can be. Awesome reminder!
