Thoughts on Entrepreneurship with Jason Fried (samuelrsolomon.com)

What's up with the fake "positive" comments at the bottom of this thread? Makes you think this was manipulated up (every user has -3 karma). Always sad to see and it feels like this has been happening more frequently.

-----


Unless you know that those users actually manipulated the post, your post is relegated to gut-based conjecture.

-----


In a post below this, user Asian11 admitted to a group of people being his peers and classmates. They also used the word "we". That seems to be more than 'gut based conjecture'.

-----


That user was created the same day and has only 1 post.

Funny, thats the same background as yourself - now the occurrence of those two similar profiles and comments seems a little more contrived than what was previously suggested.

-----


Well that answers my question — Can Jason Fried code? Answer: soon.

-----


He's a graphic designer by trade.

-----


Well, I think he's an entrepreneur by trade, but I always if he put in the time to learn Ruby/Rails with all that expertise around. As someone who's been slowly learning to program myself for years, I'd love to get his perspective on it.

(Meta-comment warning)

I appreciate that you and Sam's other friends want to show support but you're doing your friend a disservice by just saying "good job" on HN. These kinds of comments without substance typically get down-voted quite severely. People are likely to think that HN is getting manipulated and spammed when all of the comments are like that.

(I haven't down-voted any of you.)

-----


I don't think all these are actually Sam's friends, they just saw all the other posts and played along.

I was very tempted as well.

-----


Actually we're his peers... we go to the same school man.

-----


Note that the blog itself has comments where praise not appropriate for HN can be left.

-----


Great summery, Sam. I feel like I was actually there.

-----


Awesome recap!!!

-----

-----
