So I may be a contrarian (no maybes about it - I am) but I don't get the whole "build in public" thing.
My understanding is that it keeps you "accountable" or "motivated", but really if you need to be kept accountable in order to be motivated then I think you've already lost the game. To me its somewhat analogous to people who install apps to remind them to drink water. I mean... really?
I'm trying to think of all the great technical achievements of the past few hundred years, scientific as well as in the product world. Did anyone need virtual pats on the back from strangers to keep them going?
Please don't misunderstand me; I'm all for contributing to a community like this and sharing updates, asking advice etc. What I'm on about here is the whole "build in public" thing and apps like wip.chat where folks go on and literally post daily checklists of what they want to do.
Am I missing something (highly possible)?
