I agree that the author is embarrassingly proud of his naïveté, but if you can't read past the author's personal foibles, you'll miss out on an important story.

(Also, if you're looking for knee-jerk reasons to dismiss the article, his cringeworthy self-presentation is a pretty silly one. How about the fact that he's using it to promote a new book subtitled The Existential Threat of Big Tech? That's a more plausible excuse for not engaging with the substance of the article, but still not good enough, in my opinion.)
