You make it sound like Radar is the only place to get a well rounded feedback.
Can you be 100% accurate that she didnt try to get one from some other source?
Yes LIS is failing or should I say have failed, but that doesnt mean she didnt try her best to get the best feedback she could get.
One thing about us techies, is that we sometimes assume that the best feedback must come from within us... but this is not necessarily true.
If you watch the Silicon Valley the HBO series, specifiically season 3, I think this is what they tred to address there. A platform was built and test by "techies" and considered to be awesome....however in the real world, the "non techies" considered it...not so good...
So infact, what Linda may have needed is not just us, mostly a bunch of techies.. but maybe a focused group of people that cuts across her target audience.... and honestly, when it comes to gossip, I do not think we at radar fit into that bill.... but who knows... maybe am wrong
