True, if you frame it that way: NEVER stop thinking like a techie if you

policy person, however, you look not only at your own choice
constellation but at the aggregate of other people's choices and how
your choices might affect theirs and vice versa. That can be difficult.
And apologies again if anyone was offended by my original construction.
