Ignore the Gatekeepers

What do all men with power want? More power.
— The Oracle (in the Matrix)

Ignore the gatekeepers.

Those with power will work to retain that power.

Don’t listen to authority, telling you what you need, what to do.

They will bombard you with process and requirements.

The very rules they put in place.

The Internet, for a brief moment, has cracked the high walls and bridged the moat.

Do the work.

Obsess over details.

Be uncompromising and create the future.

Ignore the establishment long enough to become the establishment.

They will say they knew it all along.

Forget if they knew it, and just do it.

Ignore the gatekeepers.
