Mind vs matter

Seth Godin has written a post today arguing that software matters more than hardware.

Seth is in no sense denying that hardware is necessary to run software.  Instead, he is making the case that whilst hardware is attractive, it's the software the creates more opportunities and is where our focus should be.

Could it be that our mind, knowledge, values, ethics, etc. (our software) is a better investment option than our matter, physical bodies, houses, etc. (our hardware)?
