Apparently people are pissed that Oculus was sold to Facebook. There’s also word floating around the internet that “Notch”, the creator of Minecraft, is cancelling his Oculus version of Minecraft because he doesn’t like Facebook. My response? We live in a capitalist society. You can’t assume that someone will turn down a very large stack of money…you can’t. If we want to see fewer of these acquisitions and more independent companies, we need disruptive managers…we already have enough disruptive engineers. I may bemoan the state of perpetual adolescence the tech sector is in, but I can’t say the Oculus guys were doing anything but acting rational.
