Tech Douchebags #52: The Perpetual Contrarian

March 22, 2015 at 9:30AM • 52 minutes

In this week’s meeting, Brian S. Hall tackles step six by sharing how he gets pegged a "hater" on Twitter for criticizing tech writers, his condemnation of business models that lead to poor journalism, and that he worries his constant contrarian opinions and cynical "hot takes" will end up becoming a farce of itself after too long.

In addition, we discuss how the Apple blogosphere is like Fox News, the notion that Apple is somehow infallible because "money", and that tech writers that essentially cheerlead for the world's richest company are doing a disservice to their readers and the public in general.
