Just Say It

During a recent interview with Marcus Zarra on the CocoaConf Podcast, Marcus made a quick little comment that really resonated with me.

To paraphrase, Marcus said something like “If you ask for opinions about something to a room of developers, you don’t get much of a response. If you just say something wrong they’ll tell you about it.” It’s an interesting point. People do love to correct you when you say something wrong or even something not 100% correct. Maybe it’s a good way to think about speaking in public or blogging here. I’m not saying I’d want to blog without actually researching what I write, but if I miss something maybe that’s okay.

Maybe this means my decision not to have comments here was a bad idea. So, I think I’ll try having comments again. I think Marcus is right here. What do you think?
