re: Self-Deprecation Needs to Stop 🛑 VIEW POST


I do this often, but not because I don't recognise my own value - rather I just want to avoid yet another argument about the specific way I've done something.

Lets be honest. Some of the time, we just can't be bothered to do something "right". If you're trying to bash out a tech blog post with limited time, you may be even less likely to do it right and may focus on blogging a broad principal, failing to proof read it fully, using a generalisation or two etc.

Expressing a not-exhaustively-researched opinion is bad enough for anyone in tech, but as a woman in tech, on the internet, on twitter, with an opinion? I don't envy you.
