Bloggers: Let’s Band Together and Stop the Hype Cycle
There’s an element to the hype cycle that reflects human nature. We get excited about technology and tend to overestimate what it can do in a year and underestimate what it can do in ten years. That’s not all bad: Being underestimated is why a lot of start-ups catch giant companies off guard.
Well said. Guess what, gang? Building a company is hard. No one gets every single thing right. Bloggers harping on each mistake are like the fat guy sitting in the bleachers at a baseball game berating a star player for not hitting a homerun in every at bat.
