→ Stop hating everything new

David Chartier, writing for Finer Things in Tech:

But frankly I’m sick of it. Why was the old new stuff any better or more amazing than the new new stuff? I can’t find a legitimate reason for it. Snapchat isn’t terrible and you aren’t old. There are a thousand guides out there to explain how Snapchat works. It won’t kill you to look one up. I’ve seen all ages of people have to teach each other. You’re not inherent old, and no I don’t care what your age is.

Know what makes you old? Getting so insistently stuck in your ways that you shit on everything new just because it might not make immediate sense to you, or it might require effort or a change of habit.

Computers were originally dubbed a fad. So was the internet. Get some fucking perspective and join us. This stuff is fun and amazing and the world is still changing for the better. Otherwise get out of the way.

Everything is amazing and nobody is happy.
