09年作者在SXSW与一个小博客网站的CTO聊了很多后台的技术,那个CTO问了作者:『对了,你觉得我业余时间做的app,Instapaper怎么样?』作者多年来一直懊悔当时没有说出衷心鼓励的话。

小博客网站是Tumblr,CTO当然就是Marco Arment。人们往往很容易地去批评别人的成功。他的app在排行榜前几名,是因为他本人本来就有名、有资源。那他是生下来就有名的吗?

“Not everyone can become a great artist. But a great artist can come from anywhere.”

"It’s true that some developers today have an advantage, whether through good timing or just a long history of shipping apps, but the lesson isn’t to give up; it’s to instead learn from it, and look at our own strengths. What small head start do we have that could grow into a great success tomorrow, too?"
