Most of the Internet businesses of the last decade are long gone. But one new website is here to celebrate failure:
The service is called Positive Fail. It’s really a campaign to promote looking at failure in a new light, and being upbeat about the benefits of mistakes.
What’s interesting about Positive Fail is that it asks people to broadcast their errors using the popular microblogging platform Twitter. Sure, we all know we learn from mistakes. But this campaign says that instead of failing in private, we should do so in public. We should celebrate that failing can be positive and not just something we do away from those who might see us.
If you’re a Twitter user, try it yourself! Just send a message with the hashtag #positivefail.
