This week I posted a new podcast with Scott Hunter of Microsoft, along with Jon Galloway of Microsoft and Ward Bell of IdeaBlade. I was pretty excited about what Scott had to say about Angular and ASP.NET, and tried to convey that on Twitter. Oops.
I learned (again) what I should have known
- It is better to understate than to overstate
- It is better to check with your source before interpreting what he said
- It is better to let the podcast stand on its own
- e-conversations are very difficult
I ended up having to make “clarifications” of my comments – felt like a hack politician. I forgot that 140 characters is just enough to sound like a jerk.
Live and learn and move on.
