Too often, a tradition or perspective is thrown off for the sake of it’s condition as “pre-existing”.
The fact that something is “pre-existing” is a process of natural selection. I seek to find the sources of greatest selection success and emulate them as a starting point.
All of us stand on the shoulders of giants. Even the most creative geniuses were first students of their craft.
- Who would Steve Jobs have been without Edwin Land?
- Would this very page exist without Tim Berners-Lee or Dennis Ritchie?
Unless you have somewhere better to go, first become the best student you can of the best teacher that you perceive.
Who do I emulate?
