The problem with (Tech) Gurus

What’s interesting to me is that at the beginning it can be hard to distinguish a Guru “for Good" from a toxic one.

They both have an incredible ability to convince people to follow their guidance. The difference of course is their intention, or maybe even who they are deep down. Because even when trying to do Good, a crazy person often doesn’t.

One thing that’s easier I believe, for those who are trying to select the Gurus they want to trust, is to look at the person a bit more, separate from the project and it’s potential or apparent success.

We’re now all used to seing overnight successes disappear as fast as they came.
