People eyeroll me a lot… complaining about stuff that can be ignored… like ‘the hub’. It can definitely be ignored.
However, #1 on the Top 10 Reasons Why… updates are slow… bugs are this… design is that?:
STEINBERG HAS LIMITED RESOURCES
Fair enough. So when I see them throwing a certain amount of time, money and MARKETING ENERGY into stuff that is not only of questionable value, but simply doesn’t work, I get upset. Not to mindlessly bash, but because I would much rather they devote their time to stuff they’re -good- at and that helps my life easier. I’m trying to encourage them to stick to their core competency: THE SEQUENCER.
You can’t have it both ways: you can’t say ‘Well it doesn’t matter much anyway. You can get the same stuff on Youtube.’ If that’s the case, then why on earth create (and market) a ‘hub’ in the first place?
This is something SB does a -lot-… what I call ‘Grand Initiatives’. Stuff that isn’t all that useful and diverts precious resources away from their core wonderfulness.
