Oh god, something I wrote just wound up on Hacker News. I got two very nice emails from it, but I am desperately resisting reading the comments -- a quick glance showed 99 comments thus far and it seems unlikely that they're going to make me happier
@jamesnvc I discovered your blog by way of that post and wanted to thank you for your essay. I found the HN comments so depressing I had to step away from my PC and take a walk.
@oldfolio Ah, thank-you very much! Yeah...HN is pretty much the opposite of my intended audience, still holding strong on not looking at what they have to say
