20: The Internet Girl Scout

August 11, 2014 at 9:15AM • 29 minutes • Wiki Entry

In this week’s meeting, Jamie Young of AppAdvice confesses her irrational urge to point out other people's faux pas online, how she has a thirst for justice on the internet when false credit is taken for another person's brilliance, and how her longstanding issues with Tweetbot 3 may come across as entitled due to her bleeding edge use case.

In addition, we discuss a purist's perspective of the true purpose of a smartphone's homescreen, how we put too much stock in what an app icon looks like when judging it, why someone's disorganized phone screens make us twitch, and whether or not this type of 'homescreen porn' is a form of obsessive-compulsive disorder.

It concludes with Jamie completing step nine by apologizing to the so-called 'troll' who commented on her blog that her app complaints are an instance of 'only my use case matters'.
