My Advice To Young People - The Awl
(( via http://pando.com/2015/02/12/how-silicon-valleys-counterculture-went-corporate-and-ruined-everything/ )) >> "And the new language that is so much about the money is attracting a certain different kind of personality types.” We’re seeing the same thing play out now in blogging — or to use its unfortunate modern moniker, “Internet content creation” — which has suddenly become massively lucrative. This week, the Awl’s Alex Balk, one of the earliest adopters of Writing Stuff On The Internet, immortalized this evolutionary cycle in a post called “My Advice To Young People.” He recommends that youngsters find a field (like blogging in the early 21st century) that nobody respects or cares about — that way, you can invent the rules and rituals to your liking. Just don’t be surprised when the same people who ridiculed you a decade earlier come in and ruin everything you helped build because they finally figured out how to make money off it."
