How to complain about software  APR 13 2011

Andre Torrez says "complain about the way other people make software by making software".

Worse is when the the people doing the complaining also make software or web sites or iPhone applications themselves. As visible leaders of the web, I think there are a lot of folks who could do a favor to younger, less experienced people by setting an example of critiquing to raise up rather than critiquing to tear down.

If you're a well known web or app developer who complains a lot on Twitter about other people's projects, I am very likely talking about you. You and I both know that there are many reasons why something works a certain way or why something in the backend would affect the way something works on the front-end.

Working on a web app of my own has definitely given me a new appreciation of just how much of the iceberg is unknown to the users of an app. (via ★buzz)
