Incredibly good article at The Astronauts. The plato's cavern allegory analogy was spot on. The thought process that the author wants to engage the developer in can be applied to all aspects of life, not just making games.
That's one for the books. Those who will listen will get out of the cavern and thrive all the while being hated by those, unfortunate 'don't want to adapt and evolve while slowly dying' folks, still gawking at the shadows in the cavern.
