Really? Jason Calacanis: ‘Stupid People Shouldn’t Write’

“There are a lot of stupid people out there … and stupid people shouldn’t write.”

“There needs to be a better system for tuning down the stupid people and tuning up the smart people.”

— Jason Calacanis: “Blogging Is Dead” & Why “Stupid People Shouldn’t Write”

I completely disagree.

This blog of mine is pretty effing stupid from time to time; in fact, I think that as you dig back through the archive, you’ll find that my stupidity increases.

But that’s the point.

Blogging and writing on a daily basis makes you better — not just a better writer, but better educated on a given topic — and to say that “stupid people shouldn’t write” is to say that no one should ever improve. I’m sure Jason Calacanis has written some pretty stupid things in his day, too.

So, to recap, my advice for the day is: Go be stupid.
