Uninformed Criticism

When I first prepared this particular talk… I realized that my usual approach is usually critical. That is, a lot of the things that I do, that most people do, are because they hate something somebody else has done, or they hate that something hasn’t been done. And I realized that informed criticism has completely been done in by the web. Because the web has produced so much uninformed criticism. It’s kind of a Gresham’s Law — bad money drives the good money out of circulation. Bad criticism drives good criticism out of circulation. You just can’t criticize anything.–Alan Kay, How Simply and Understandably Could The “Personal Computing Experience” Be Programmed?
