The Unicorn Sect

I’d just wanted to share here an amazing post written by David Heinemeier Hansson (@DHH), creator of Ruby on Rails and founder & CTO at Basecamp.

On that post at Medium, entitled “Reconsider“, he writes about that startup rush we’re living in:

Part of the problem seems to be that nobody these days is content to merely put their dent in the universe. No, they have to fucking own the universe. It’s not enough to be in the market, they have to dominate it. It’s not enough to serve customers, they have to capture them.

It’s probably easier to say this once you are that succesful, but even taking that into account, the thoughts are exactly mine -and I’m part of that press that evangelizes about that cult, my fault-.

So true. Please read it.
