It’s Been Said Before, and I’ll Say It Again

Jamie Zawinski:

Michael Arrington posted this article, “Startups Are Hard. So Work More, Cry Less, and Quit All The Whining” which quotes extensively from my 1994 diary.

He’s trying to make the point that the only path to success in the software industry is to work insane hours, sleep under your desk, and give up your one and only youth, and if you don’t do that, you’re a pussy. He’s using my words to try and back up that thesis.

I hate this, because it’s not true, and it’s disingenuous.

Michael Arrington is a dick.
