    My new hero. RP @jdbentley: In hindsight, I spent far too much money on Ev Bogue's nonsense. (Not much, mind you. Just far too much.)

        @jdbentley in the past I was very intrigued in his (and Gwen Bell’s) work and he seems like a very interesting guy. I just grew weary of what seemed to be an intentionally abrasive, condescending and contrarian voice.

            @jdbentley Do I need a tent membership to see his profile? Now I’m intrigued.

                @jamesgowans @jdbentley I respect them both but it seems they are going deeper and deeper down a very strange rabbit hole featuring every new avant-garde tech flavored of the month and trying to figure out how to monetize it.

                  @patrickrhone @jdbentley I was just about to make a very similar same rabbit hole comment. I wrote and erased about 13 different comments, but I can’t phrase it any better than you just did Patrick.

                      @patrickrhone @jdbentley hmm: “similar same”. Nice work Gowans.

                          @jdbentley it was more of an “I’m trying to sound smart oh look at that Patrick just said exactly what I’m trying to say except much more eloquently than I could have and now where was I - *post* - sonofabitch!” thing.

                              @jdbentley @patrickrhone @jamesgowans I bought Minimalist Business when he rereleased it a while ago, but it always felt a bit slimy.

                                  @jdbentley haha, nice. He’s nearly 20 years my senior. Perhaps I shouldn’t have shaved my head.

                                      @jdbentley @andrewmarvin @patrickrhone was that before or after he was begging for money to get out of Germany?

                                          @jdbentley @jamesgowans I still regret posting his 2x4 interview. Still makes me angry to this day. Big difference between brief and terse.

                                            @mschechter @jdbentley I don’t think posting it reflects poorly on you. A man’s answers are his own domain in an interview.

                                                @jamesgowans @jdbentley True, it’s probably better to say that it’s one of my least favorite things on the site. And I’ve written a lot of crap in my day.

                                                  @jamesgowans @jdbentley on the plus side, it lives on Lifehack.org so I can always blame @mikevardy

                                                          @jdbentley unbelievable. My son just looked at my phone, saw my profile pic and said “daddy is this you?”
