While I wouldn’t consider “A Tribe Called Quest” new poets, their most recent album, We Got It from Here… Thank You 4 Your Service could definitely be considered a protest album. Many of the lyrics on the album specifically address the divisive atmosphere created by Trump, such as this song in particular: https://youtu.be/vO2Su3erRIA
Thank you for writing this post! One of my new favorite Medium posts. As a self-taught developer the frustration you (and other posters) mention is very real. I had been applying the 50/50 rule you describe here (without the name for it) so it’s great to know that I’m not crazy! 😜
I’m a start-up founder who also used to be a stand-up comedian, and I can vouch having performed on an early show with Sara that she is one of the funniest people I have ever seen.
I was actually telling my therapist (yes, of course we need one) that stand-up comedy and tech to me are very similar in that you get to…
Quite possibly the most useful post I’ve ever seen on Medium. I’ll be sure to send this on to other folks I know working on apps. I know I’ve got a few on this list I still need to add.
You got the maximum applause from me (and a standing slow clap). Many thanks for putting this together!
So funny to come across this now as I’m a startup founder with an undergrad degree in TV/film and a grad degree in design, and recently came to this conclusion for my film/TV focused startup. Dove in and designed my own UX/UI. Had never made the connection until now. Screenwriting happens to be my favorite thing to do. Great piece!
