So Angela Benton and her NewMe characters was getting their affirmative action media press on with these tech bloggers like TechCrunch, Scobelizer and ReadWriteWeb. They were even featured on Black in America 2 but I don’t have cable TV in case yall forgot so I haven’t seen it. But I do remember hearing Angela Benton on NPR and she sounded exactly like someone who knows little but presents herself a lot. But the thing we going to talk about today is this one product call AisleFinder that supposed to come out of their camp.
Now Angela Benton and that Black Web 2.0 nonsense had been around for a few years. You kinda know what cats are about when they been around for a few years. For example, you still got a wannabee hustle blogger blogging since the last decade still talking about “chauncey men” in 2012 and any real brotha has to raise eyebrows at that weirdness. And in 2012, you still got Angela Benton and her Black Web 2.0 and NewMe still seeking validation and acceptance from industry bigots.
I really do know and really don’t know where Angela Benton and the rest of those NewMe characters are coming from. I mean, they suck at programming and software development and they really are pathetic and I can say that and they can’t say sh*t about what I said because they do suck. But they craving for all of this attention as some kind of disaffected minority in this tech industry. They trying to go about the tech industry racism by trying to be liked and chosen by the tech bigots so they can say they arrived.
Overall, I believe these NewMe/Black Web 2.0 characters come from the affirmative action/entitlement camp these bigots like to refer to that I didn’t believe existed. I’m from the hood and ain’t nobody gave my Black ass a damn thing and I had to hustle and my family had to hustle to put food on our table. I did not believe there were Black folks who actually thought a bigot was actually going to give them something because of affirmative action laws! So this whole Angela Benton and Black Web 2.0 and NewMe shocked me to believe there are Black people who actually believe in a system of seeking validation and acceptance from others to get themselves ahead.
Here is the part because I want to pimp slap real hard out of this stupid angle Angela Benton and the rest of these sorry but “popular” technology Black faces been trying to push for years. I know many of you brothas and sistas understand but these cats are extremely confused and I don’t understand why they keep asking for validation and acceptance instead of going for theirs even as they stand there suck and kinda stagnant with their silly one trick ponies.
I just want Angela Benton and the rest of these NewMe characters understand there is a big gigantic emerging GDP country out there called India that has software programmers and engineers. I just want them to know in the real world, everybody is chasing after them and understand the reason why:
SUWON, South Korea—Samsung Electronics Co. has long shunned outside help in favor of developing devices on its own.
But as the smartphone market rapidly shifts its emphasis from hardware to software, the Korean manufacturer is realizing it must change its insular corporate culture.
Samsung has begun aggressively hiring foreign software engineers, especially in India, to build up its software prowess and keep pace with the rapid rise of rival Apple Inc. and its popular iPhone.
These Indian developers are not the same bunch from the last decade; they are actually leaders in this technology game right now. They have aggregated talent and they are cheap and they commoditizing the game and this is who the modern world is chasing right now in 2012. The current technology leaders are at more competition with each other than ever before and can give two sh*ts about your NewMe behind because you get a lot of “press” and visibility out there. So understanding what’s real in the global landscape of tech talent, NewMe is a goddamn joke and trying to only look popular instead of actually have something to bring to the table.
Speaking of bringing food to the table, I ran across this AisleFinder thing doing my research on the retail industry several months ago and didn’t care about it too much. However, I want to show you cats exactly how these NewMe Black Web 2.0 cats think and how these technology bigots use these clowns to try to claim they are not racist towards Blacks in the technology industry and press coverage.
Check out, well I don’t need you to waste your time like that but just check out the first few minutes of this video by Robert Scoble, a punk ass bigot his mother (she probably like Black men) should be ashamed of her son in this technology industry:
Robert Scoble puts this absolute embarrassing clown on this video but Robert Scoble bigot ass has never featured a real African-American tech talent and only show tokens like this who got no tech talent or industry experience worth talking about. Oh, sorry for not mentioning this before but this is Curtiss Pope, the CEO of AisleFinder and the guy featured in the video appearing extremely clueless like he been hanging around Angela Benton at Black Web 2.0..oh, I forgot.
As he described in the video about AisleFinder, this is a mobile application that allows shoppers to find items in the store easy and fast. They compile a list of stores and where the items are located in the store. The goal is to help people find products fast and where they located and they want to be featured on Food Network and stuff. But we’ll talk about this stupid dumbass AisleFinder business model and workflow later. What I really want cats to see is the footer section:
Do you notice they crave for media attention and being mentioned in the media? So this footer is the biggest giveaway about Angela Benton, Black Web 2.0 and NewMe and the rest of these characters. If this was a customer-centric web site, then real-world grocery shopping customer or their target demographic could care less about these “technology web sites” being referenced and customers just want to know how to use the application for their benefit. The fact these technology links are in their footer is proof-positive, these Black Web 2.0 and NewMe characters are seeking validation and acceptance from the technology industry, not provide a service to real-world customers.
Okay, about AisleFinder business model, there is nothing to talk about because it’s f*cking stupid. If I want to find something, I’ll ask the people working in the store that stock and arrange the stuff in their own store where it is at. Why would I be walking around a store holding a mobile device in my hand to see what aisle the eggs are at? I bet this dude was actually serious that someone would take this bullsh*t serious and he is right, the tech bigots like Techcrunch and Robert Scoble takes him serious because they always promote sorry ass brothas and sistas like this while trying to suppress real Black talent in this industry.
The second reason why this is stupid is because I realize if he actually done an ounce of research, he would have known every retailer has planograms and data already and can provide this information. Retailers already know their layouts and their layouts have to change for business reasons and that data is already there that AisleFinder is claiming to build up. I already knew he was not sourcing this data from the retailers the first few seconds of Mr. Pope running his mouth. I already figured out this bright character was having cats physically recording and reporting from a mobile the location of stuff in a store in a old-fashion screen scraping method.
So there is nothing to talk about except this topic anymore except to point out the current pathetic state of these fake ass Black tech entrepreneurs trying to make a mockery of real brothas and real sistas with tech talent trying to get their products out. Angela Benton and the rest of the Black Web 2.0 clowns who hang around her are nothing but attention seeking hoes to the game trying to make themselves the victims when they got nothing to offer. And the bigots in the tech media love these mediocre clowns and parade them all around because they want to try to demonstrate why these VC companies don’t invest in Blacks because these Black people don’t know how pathetic they are.
But don’t worry, Dream and Hustle will continue to bring real technology to brothas and sistas so we can use technology to help us in our solutions to create economic empowerment so we can do for self, our people, our community and our future. I have no need to seek validation and acceptance from these tech bigots when I’m working directly with cats all over the world and is one of the top cats in this game. I don’t need to stick my chest out – cats are too damn scared to mention my name because that may want to make you look at my resume and they don’t want you to see that, haha.
But the good thing is, I’m from the West Side of Chicago and currently in Atlanta and know my people and my community and this blog is a testament of that. I don’t seek validation from these punk coward bigots in the technology industry; I work worldwide with global resources to help create solutions we brothas and sistas can apply for ourselves and our own progress. How I get down in this game is how real Black technology brotha or sista should be about if they want to claim that title description and these characters don’t fit that definition.
All I got to say is coming from the Chicago Housing Authority and the West Side of Chicago, I didn’t realize we actually had Black people out there that believed in affirmative action and seeking validation and acceptance from those who don’t like us. All this history of Black entrepreneurs busting their ass for the past 150 years and putting in hard work and you got in 2012, Angela Benton and Black Web 2.0 and NewMe licking bigots booty instead of putting in work like our predecessors – go figure.
