I think maybe we are all lacking in a little empathy and it’s not helping us tbh. Myself included. I was about about to write something nasty (and even envoke the word Trump)
We feel angry because we feel afraid that we are not or not soon going to get or V. And we feel our trust is violated, which yeah. And that makes, at least me, afraid of everything really, trusting other people’s projects, trying to be an entrepreneur myself, other people’s intentions.
But I just think the anger is misplaced. We are all frustrated, and pent up energy becomes quickly misdirected. But really, deep down I know that the team at Eve really really are trying their best. The problem is the scope of their struggle, which is all of our struggle, because we helped create them and they . They made mistakes, maybe not even, maybe they used deceptive language, but marketing is difficult , honesty is difficult.
So whatever, forgive them, life is fucking hard, fucking impossibly hard sometimes just to make a buck and pay the bills.
And these people, who are just like you and me, tried to take down Microsoft, and Apple and everyone.
And we supported them cause we do too.
We don’t like Apple and we don’t want Microsoft. We want David, not Goliath.
So when Eve is meeting w investors, on the last days of their sales pitch, we are filling their own message board w hate, fear, and vitriol which is prbly super unattractive to investors and theref prbly not self serving to our own interests.
Full disclosure, def drank some wine tonight.
I think tho. I support you guys Eve.
Thanks for trying
