Metacircular Ranting

Stefan Tilkov,

By the end of writing this rant about TechChrunch’s Michael Arrington, Warren Henning’s blood pressure was probably around 250 …

He’s fooling himself into thinking he’s doing something important. He’s labelling and categorizing all these useless Web 2.0 startups that have no business model, speculating on their non-existent futures, commenting on and writing about the products others create. Arrington is a lawyer, not a coder. He doesn’t actually understand what a web application is the way someone whose automotive skills are limited to changing the oil doesn’t really understand how an internal combustion engine works.
