Design isn’t alone in its lack of quality content—the web, by and large, has become a dumping ground for garbage. Most design content has become poor quality, surface-level content marketing that does more damage than good, because it offers over-simplified, misinformed perspectives dressed up as guidance. When the experienced don’t write, grifters step in, feign expertise, and sell it.Frank Chimero’s blog
I have been reading Frank’s blog for a very long time. He writes about design, but when extrapolated it applies to the web culture and the Internet as well. When reading his latest post, I couldn’t help but nod my head in agreement. You can replace “design” with “venture capital,” “startups,” “marketing,” “fashion,” or just about anything, and the core message won’t change. More often than not, you will find much of this fluff on Medium or some copy cat version, like Forbes.com. Obviously, you know how I feel about content & marketing.
