You’ve spelled out in a very honest way, what your personal goals were, and how you achieved it by…

I really like this response. After reading the article, the two main points I got out of it were the following:

  1. Think carefully about your desires and motivations before diving into something that doesn’t align with your core values.
  2. Isolating a phenomenon so vast as ‘startup ecosystems’ geographically or giving birth to a stereotype when it comes to funding, can be detrimental.

Your points still stand and if you observe tech holistically, it makes the most sense. I saw DHH’s views as away of almost disrupting the idea of disruption itself. I don’t think anyone sane would actually put down the idea of a startup ecosystem or having great ambitions to change the world in a positive way. It just means that we should stop once in a while when moving at breakneck speeds, before the necks are actually broken.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
