Replying to a tweet from @Lady_Ada_King
OH: “H.P. Lovecraft? I thought you said PHP Lovecraft.”
I wish that websites would put that sentence right next to their “sign up now!” call to action:
Every project eventually dies, effectively or in practice.
Then, people would be informed about what they’re getting into.
Alas, no! It’s a shame—I really liked that Hack Farm project. 😔
Only if you tell people in advance, when they’re signing up to use your product, that this is what’s going to happen.
The mismatch in expectations should definitely not be applauded.
