CodeNow Zuckerberg Pitch

I have nothing against CodeNow, but consider the The Next Web blog post title:

CodeNow to train the youth of America to be the world’s next Mark Zuckerberg

Have you noticed what’s wrong with the title?  CodeNow’s goal is noble but the marketing pitch is misleading.

You are not Mark Zuckerberg. You are not Seth Godin. You are not Bill Gates nor Steve Jobs.

You are just one in a long tail of niche individuals that may carve a future in IT. Unless you emulate their perseverance.

One’s success is different among others.

To parahrase Steve Jobs:

Follow your heart…Don’t live someone else’s life.
