Stay original

Original is not something that you become, it’s something that you already are.

We all have original ideas, an original style, it’s staying original and doing things that aren’t on the map that makes us afraid.

Microsoft is down to earth

I came across a quote from Bill gates: “Measuring programming progress by lines of code is like measuring aircraft building progress by weight.”

Well, Bill, if that is true then there is no surprise that Windows 8 hasn’t taken off, with 50 Million lines of code.

In a pop culture

We live in a pop culture and I know, some of you really do not like it. Especially, if the science becomes pop-culture where it really should not(e.g. computer science). Yet, the pop culture is important. It has got a lot of energy and you have to learn how to make your ideas spread or else – they’re going to die.

Especially, if you don’t seek the applause of the moment but do it for the rest of time.

Where do new jobs come from?

In the past twenty years, the number of jobs biggest companies have created is zero. It’s the entrepreneurs who start small and stay original, who don’t look up rules in a how-to book, who create jobs. That’s where growth really comes from.

Steep funnel

The more we have at stake the more likely we are to live the story of a tribe, the more we defend it because we’re not defending the tribe itself anymore but ourselves.
