I dunno... call me crazy, but I think:
All of the stuff that's happening right now, here, is part of the experience. The essence of true lifecasting, as I see it, is that you get it all - the ups and downs, the connected moments and the without wi-fi ones. Shit happens; that's what makes it real. I think it's unfair for us, as readers, to expect slickly produced content like you'd get from a fully-staffed, corporate-owned lifestyle site. This is not that, and I don’t believe that’s what we really want from this site. Could it be like that more? Sure. And will it be, eventually? I think so, if that’s their intention. I just have a problem with the thought that because they had a not-so-wonderful past couple of weeks, the whole venture is a failure. That’s dumb. Remember: these are people we’re talking about, and this is their baby that you’re trashing. Unfair and uncalled for, really. They’re putting themselves out there. They’re trying something new. So what if there are kinks along the way? There are ALWAYS kinks along the way — in life and in any project. It’s just that we’re able to see them, here, live.
So... Can we relax a little and let it unfold a little without being so freaking horrible to them? Maybe? A little?
Kyle, we actually have something in our head to address your points; it's been percolating for a while. You make a reasonable argument. But because we are actual journalists with actual work to do, we will have to wait a bit before we can put it all down. In the meantime, we're sure our devoted readers will have a few things to say.
