Putting our ideas out on the Internet is intimidating. It’s scary. What if people say it’s dumb? What if it is dumb? What if my ideas just aren’t very good? What if I get cancelled?
Florent Crivello has a simple response: nobody cares. Nobody cares what the average person on Twitter or Medium writes. The default is obscurity. The downside is limited, while the upside is huge.
And we need more voices online, Crivello argues:
I do wish more people were active online. The whole promise of the Internet was that of an infinite, vibrant, open forum of ideas.
