"what the american tech- & enterpreneurs bubble's idolised people are clickbaiting about, right now."
Pretty website though.
Hey all, I work for the Special Projects team at Crew, kudos on the feedback.
Based on a handful of suggestions, we took some time to update our list this afternoon. If you have any founders who write on a regular basis that you'd like to see on the list, let us know, we're always open to suggestions :)
Hey Shaun, There's some good comments here on diversity. Another dimension to it is: do these writers need featuring at all? I suggest that the most influential founders and entrepreneurs don't need another megaphone to amplify their voices—their opinions are already overrepresented, over-retweeted, over-featured by Medium, etc.
Who we should be hearing from are the world's smartest but marginalised perspectives. Most of us in the startup world are already knee deep in its discourse—what we need are fresh, alternative perspectives. People who can critique or challenge our culture, and who aren't necessarily writing from the viewpoint of the traditional "successful startup founder / investor," have valuable, insightful, and educational things to say as well.
I have a lot of respect for Crew as a company, and I encourage you help build a startup culture that isn't an echo chamber. Would love to talk more if there's a way I can help out.
Thanks for the feedback Toby.
Again, we're totally willing to consider any writers that people recommend, provided they write on a consistent basis. If you have any specific writers you'd like to see, let us know!
The idea when we started this side project, was to create a hub where people can read the latest pieces from the world's best known founders and entrepreneurs.
That said, it definitely makes sense to add a category for "up and comers" with a fresh perspective. Definitely not opposed to it. Again, if you have any writers you'd like to recommend, always open to suggestions.
I like that photo treatment. I wonder if it'd be possible to replicate it purely with CSS?
A couple of quick thoughts:
- CSS filter grayscale with semi-transparent gradient overlay div
- Multiple SVG Filters to mimic Photoshops gradient map method: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/27245489/how-to-mimic-ps-gradient-map-effect-with-svg-fecolormatrix
Really? Photos make me squint. I also dislike there's more cyan in it then in the rest of the design. Shoulda made the top bar a bit more like that color to make it fit better, I reckon. Consistency and all.
But yeah, I find them difficult to look at. Didn't recognise Cuban at all, as an example.
Really well done. Crew kills it with marketing. And, brilliant way to get on these founder's radar! Nice!
Would be great if you can add Marc Andreessen, Naval Ravikant and Tim Ferriss.
Pretty cool resource, thanks!
whole lotta white dudes. this will end well.
I see no white people there. They're all blue.
reminds me of this
Holy, everyone is white! LOL
