I accidentally re-discovered this article last night as I was writing This Post is Not About the 128GB iPad 4, as I was looking for the link to Ben Brooks’s knife reviews. #20 is probably my favorite:
“Don’t give a shit about what people think of your honest opinion. If you think Android is better than iOS, Windows better than Mac, and Nikon better than Canon — so be it. You’d be wrong, but at least you’re standing for what you believe in, and that’s more important.”
Pandering came to mind the first time I read this and once again this time around. Something to keep in mind as you produce any sort of content attracting widespread attention and thus widespread criticism as well.
