amwelles about this:
It’s funny how much interneters think that everybody should know exactly how everything works. I catch myself doing it all the time. Lots of people don’t understand it because they simply don’t care enough about it. It’s the same reason I don’t know much about politics, science, math, or religion, I suppose. I’m not really involved enough to care about them. However, I don’t think I would appreciate somebody making a public statement about how I should just know these things.
Right, in general. This was funny because he’s been a friend of mine since high school, and I work for Tumblr.
I’m perfectly aware that non-internet-nerds (“regular people”) don’t know about every cool new web service.
