I absolutely love this article, and resonates with why I continue to love ello every month that passes by. It's also why I love the indie games global community, and why I do what I do with my time.
I'll probably read this multiple times, I'd urge you to at least read it once - it's an interesting perspective.
FUCK THE STATUS QUO on ello, and Medium.
So, here’s the problem with experts.
Most of them read the same books & blogs, live in the same tech ghettos, eat at the same restaurants, go to the same trade shows, and repeat the same facts to one another.
Doing what everyone else is doing is not innovation, it’s iteration.
Being an expert with loads of experience has its limitations. The more you are sure about what you know, the less you’re open to what you don’t. Innovation emerges from the willingness to throw everything you know to be true out the window and be a beginner again — over and over — no matter how much experience you have.
It’s much more interesting to get out there and just do things. Even if I’m not sure my next brilliant idea is a going to work out, it’s much more fun to at least give it a try.
Find me on ello, I'd love more friends to hang out with.
