i deserved it
do i come right out and bash the people who bash the king of all media?
no, but you don’t have to be a genius to see what im up to when i debunk nonsense online.
why do i waste so much time doing it?
at the world famous Daily Nexus, I had very few bosses. mostly because they made me an editor of different desks pretty quickly, which is normal in college since theres so much turnover and so few people willing to dedicate their lives to the paper
but one of my bosses was Dougie Gyro
i reached out to him the other day about the design of the Hear in LA website that has gotten me to stop my momentum
i am really struggling with it because i am no design expert and i am desperately trying to make it look like something i am not: elegantly professional.
doug gave me the best advice which is actually something he told me he learned from Apple’s Guy Kawasaki
don’t worry, be crappy.
which basically means, whoever it is youre trying to impress so hard either
does not care about you one but
can see through the facade and only cares about the content youre actually creating
warts and all
so make your Drudge Report design if you’re Drudge, it’s the You that matters
and thats why i am so grateful that the Lord put me in Santa Barbara when he did because so many of my friends are that wise
and one day i hope to be too.
