Does it mean that generating income is not the only driver of change for such companies anymore?

The moves by tech companies and other startups to limit the power of non-practicing investors, e.g not engineers, is ideal. Capital shouldn’t buy anything more than a return.

Investors don’t have the requisite knowledge to even begin to understand the software or hardware that a modern information company deals with. They have proven this in spades over the past 40 years. The push by the Ichans of the world for short term profit has hampered market innovation not ignited it.

Investors should be thankful that they are allowed to invest, its essentially free money at this point.
