GeekWire had a couple of stories yesterday about start-up exits.
They’re in keeping with the usual exit article: Smiling faces, we’re very happy to be acquired by a competitor whom we previously said we were better than, etc. I’m not picking on GeekWire — all of our news sources, mainstream or otherwise, have this problem.
I’m reminded how we have so much partially accurate or wholly inaccurate news in our lives. We get the public statements asserting this or that, but we’ll never know what truly went down.
It’s more than, “History is written by the victors.” How can you know if what you know about the world is complete and accurate?
One thought on “You’ll never know the real story”
I just assume my information is incomplete and inaccurate. Life’s easier that way. Okay yes much more complicated and uncertain, but I’m not wrong nearly as often as when I think I know everything.
