Last night I watched designers and developers bitch and moan about the Oscars (and the entertainment industry) on Twitter.
Humor me with a thought experiment. Imagine the general public cared about Silicon Valley’s success stories, personalities, fashions and fads. I bet our industry leaders would revel in the glamor and back-patting in the exact same way; Armani suits, designer dresses, bad jokes and millionaires handing gold statues to other millionaires.
I agree with Matthew Smith’s sentiments, “I’d like to see less back patting and more challenging articulate critique executed with a healthy measure of grace.”
