Să recapitulăm din 2013 de la Anil Dash și să facem ediția revizuită și adăugită:
- Given enough time, any object which can generate musical notes will be used to play the Super Mario Brothers theme on YouTube.
- Judging by their response, the meanest thing you can do to people on the Internet is to give them really good software for free.
- Three things never work: Voice chat, printers and projectors.
- Once a web community has decided to dislike a person, topic, or idea, the conversation will shift from criticizing the idea to become a competition about who can be most scathing in their condemnation. (See The Law of Fail.)
- Any new form of electronic communication will first be dismissed as trivial and worthless until it produces a profound result, after which it will be described as obvious and boring.
- If your website’s full of assholes, it’s your fault. (See the post on this topic.)
- Most websites treat “I like it” and “This is good” as the same thing, leading to most people on the Internet refusing to distinguish between “I don’t like it” and “It’s not good”.
- When a company or industry is facing changes to its business due to technology, it will argue against the need for change based on the moral importance of its work, rather than trying to understand the social underpinnings.
- People will move mountains to earn a gold star by their name on the Internet.
- The only way to get useful feedback from people on the Internet is to ask questions that are actually answerable, instead of open-ended.
Plus câteva descoperite între timp, mai mult pentru noi care lucrăm în industrie:
- The best way to lose followers is to be yourself
- The better you know technology, the worse you probably know good art. Get help. Collaborate. (via Jason Calacanis)
- Being famous in one medium rarely translates into a second (tot Jason Calacanis)
- Everyone hates advertising until they start their own company or lose their cat (David Droga)
- Always remember that your average tabloid journalist believes much more in what they do than the typical brand manager: they’re motivated by the search for truth as greater sense of moral purpose.
- It’s the easiest place to talk to more people than you ever did before but success actually comes from making a small number of people disproportionately happy.
