After a long evening working an event, we had a couple of guys sit at the bar with myself and a couple of coworkers. When we were asked what we do, we answered “Vague Internet Things”.
“That’s great—as long as it isn’t that fucking WordPress!”
After hearing him out and talking through his beef some, by the end he said, “Of course, I sit down hating WordPress and now I want to work with y’all!”
The Internet and the work we do is still, in root, about connecting with people.
