"When you make programming skills the core component of any web role then you've made the web into a programmers playground. This is when you start seeing feature factories, whines of "why can't those users upgrade?", and [derision of soft skills like design].

Picking up a tremendous vibe of "well how else are we supposed to build complex apps?" when *no one is talking about this*. The argument is about raising the baseline of making *anything* for the web so high that it excludes people."


@alcinnz I recently got fired because I couldn’t stop asking “Why? Who is this for? Does it improve the experience?”

The answer is always “fuck users get money”

@alcinnz Addendum: The stakes aren’t always dire but my particular case regards quasi-medical advice given directly to users.
