This is not a complaint about the post, but about Hacker News. If Hacker News had subsections like Reddit does, this post would belong under inspiration/self-help. I would unsubscribe from that section and I wouldn't see it. As things stand, these posts take up too many slots on the one and only, one-size-fits-all front page of a site called Hacker News.
I find it a bit ironic that Hacker News is so unhackable / uncustomizable.
There are certainly some kinds of posts that objectively just don't belong here, I'll grant that. But if you want filters then just go to Reddit.
I'm not turning 43 this week, but I am exhausted to death of the inability to filter out categories/sub-cultures of content like this.
I find it contradictory that you use "my developers" and "out of my head" in the same sentence.
Insta-followed. Can we please make THIS be the typical tagline at the end of every article instead of the aggressive "you should follow me"?
That's what I'm doing with Summon the Warrior: http://summonthewarrior.com
My interest is in hypnosis and self-improvement, and I want to use my imagination, so I carve out the time to do these things. My goal is to be able to walk away from contracting altogether and just work on hypnosis et al.
Just be prepared for possible economic hardships and be willing to sacrifice your free time to make your dream happen.
