Every time someone posts yet another sudo joke, with all the originality of those BSOD jokes nobody's ever heard before, some god kills a kitten.3
Update on second offer:
This company has absolutely no sense of what they are doing and their only selling point is that one of their co-founder is a PHD from Harvard and has friends from Sanford and other places and he is a son of an Indian Billionaire who founded the largest IT Servicing company.
Fucked my brains in every round of interview and were hard selling me the position.
Just got off with another round with Billionaire's son.
CTO aka Billionaire's son's exact words:
"We are doing world changing things which you would never be able to do at your current org because they are not superior like us even if they are a FAANG. We are OG and all other Indian companies copy from valley."
All this while dickhead was brushing his teeth and taking a dump. Had zero courtesy on how to respect others during interviews.
I bashed him on the processes and confusing me and he said I am not serious about the role. Yes, I am not because who the fuck would want to work for a crap shit like you who brags for 15 minutes with absolutely no productive conversation?
Annoyed and bored the shit outta me. Fuck your originality and fuck you.9
Can I complain most of the memes or jokes in this platform have been overused
I'm usually not the one to speak but sometimes I just see overused jokes or those stolen from Reddit.
Have some originality
(and before you ask, my own memes are on Reddit as well. I repost my own memes, not someone else's)13
Not claiming any originality here... I'm just happy to finally have included it. We'll see if it passes PR review - might make my coworkers "steam" a little (pun intended) ;)2
I started watching Silicon Valley some days back. Just finished season-1. I'm fucking sad and pissed off right now... No, don't get me wrong...Silicon Valley is good. I loved it.
Problem is, there is an Indian YouTube series called TVF Pitchers which had almost same story as silicon valley. I loved that series, when I watched it in 2015, after completing that I really was very impressive with the channel because of the originality and very off-the-track plot. Now after watching Silicon valley, I'm fucking sad... THEY JUST FUCKING COPY PASTED IT. yeah, some people with their "courtroom skills" will tell me that no it was different story... Fuck you! It was a copy and that's it. They removed Gilfoyle character and there was no product information in entire series... That was the biggest change in it. But overall it was a copy... A fucking copy.
The problem is they themselves, in their other videos, make fun of our movies/songs because of them being copied... Now, they are fucking doing it on their own.
I know it's not much related to devRant. Sorry about that.
Some times back, I joined a startup and they pitched in their idea as if they created it on their own... Later I found out that the same idea is running in a successful Palo Alto based company. And just like TVF Pitchers, they also used to make fun of an Indian e-commerce startup (a big one) because it was a copy of Amazon... THEN WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU!!!
I don't know, but for some reason I just fucking hate it. Everybody here is busy copy fucking pasting US. They laugh at others, but they are also same... I'm going through Peter Theil's Zero to One.. and the book is making much more sense to me now.7
"The prerequisite of originality is the art of forgetting, at the proper moment, what we know." - Arthur Koestler2
Sometimes I can't comprehend how clients rather want a complete rip off from an existing website rather than add some originality
I could quite easily copy from the coding love and put on here, but I prefer to be original when telling my story.
"Designers tend to overvalue differentiation and originality. We are taught this in design school. The best solutions are created ex nihilo, break new ground, resemble nothing else in the world. Everyone wants to stand out, or else what’s the point? But this isn’t true. Most people don’t want to stand out. They want to fit in. More precisely, they want to fit in with the people they like, or want to be like." - Michael Bierut
"Stop being afraid of your own pictures, stop worshiping art, treat it the Polish way, condescendingly, make it obedient, and then your originality will release itself in you, new roads will open in front of you and you will gain what is most valuable, most fertile: your own reality. " - Gombrowicz
