On Selling Out

Posted on 4 February, 2010 at 2:27pm

“I honestly don’t know what selling out is supposed to mean anymore, the term is leveled with such regularity. I was under the impression that it meant that your principles were for sale, that an indeterminate sum had changed hands and now you were under command. … Now it appears to involve infractions of some impossibly austere, orthodox hipster code, complete with constant play-by-play analysis by psychic forum trolls and betrayed fans who gleefully plot the coordinates of your downward trajectory.”

From 2004, but strikingly relevant in the context of the iPad. From Penny Arcade, via Meg.
