Release Candidate One with Chris Clark

This Is Jason Kottke

I realized fairly early on that me and the Jason Kottke who published online were actually two separate people…or to use Danskin’s formulation, they were a person and a concept.

Jason Kottke

There’s an ongoing phenomenon in my life where people who know Clarko On The Internet eventually meet Clarko In IRL and say “wow, you’re much nicer than I thought!” and I don’t ever know whether to take that as a compliment or a criticism.

If you haven’t seen the excellent This Is Phil Fish video, you really ought to. But there’s something about Jason tying it and Notch’s resignation to Erin Kissane’s excellent “ditching” of Twitter (a concept I alluded to earlier) and his experience as an O.G. Pro Blogger that feels familiar.
