A lot of what you are saying is true, but the difficulty is to find the time to be able to actually build stuff. Someone has to pay for it.

If people are making money creating info products rather than themselves building products then it’s only going to get harder and harder to actually build stuff because we’ll be crushed by the info products.

I don’t know what the answer is, it’s quite depressing to be honest.

I feel you. That's the challenge we have to solve. Figuring out how to solve it will be specific for every individual. Again, nobody can decide how to solve it, only you.

Though every person’s situation is going to be different, having various backgrounds etc, I think there are probably some common patterns.

Very broadly, I’d say that the people building things need to have the motivation, the space and the opportunity to create info products.

It’s no good if people get pushed out into the info product sector, at best it can only work for a little while. These two activities need to be happening in parallel.

I think at it’s core it’s a chicken and egg type problem, but also a resource allocation problem. In the digital world, one day you are building a shed and the next day a sky scrapper. The whole space is very discontinuous, which makes progression difficult.
