mi 32 - lack of adoption of SV model: no politics, execution, results driven, value creation, accepting Failure as outcome (culture of Stigma in EU and Germany) // min 36 - oh hi there world - buy into the company! a partner, strategic joint venture. shared economic interest, own platform by publishers! // miss-allocation of capital ! // hard things about hard things - Pivot, layoff vs running out of money not finding product/market fit & traction // early on its only hunch & gut based. // #TOA15: ¨Are the Germans Unable to Disrupt?¨ with Christoph Keese (Axel Springer SE) - youtu.be/YyuJmAtZQis - its abt value creation, value add, redesigning of value, chains, product, data.

Do You Trust Larry Page? - Stratechery by Ben Thompson
Given the fact that Alphabet née Google is the second most valuable enterprise in the world, it’s striking to consider Larry Page’s 2014 assessment of the company he co-founded with Sergey Brin: I think we’ve not succeeded as much as we’d like. [...] Even Google’s famously far-reaching mission statement, to “organise the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”, is not big enough for what he now has in mind. The aim: to use the money that is spouting from its search advertising business to stake out positions in boom industries of the future, from biotech to robotics. [...] Googles non-social approach to advertising vs Facebook and everyone else ] [ ad world begins finally to shift away from TV & other legacy forms & FB/Google are main beneficiaries coming years of changing ad spend ] [ Page/Brin want 2 lead the org 2 a new frontier. A new Google Search. &they think they a near it, ie self-driving car, that they think the timing is right NOW ]

Don't fear failure, unlock your inner creativity, and say yes | Don Dodge | TEDxAthens - YouTube
risk of failure greater than the chance of success. // Success is not final, failure is not fatal. Courage to move forward, counts. Move every day. None is giving you a free ride/lunch. // achieving 60% of the impossible is better than 100% of the ordinary! // NO TO INCREMENTALISM !!! // there are lots of people that you cant, and we teach conformity and not being a rebel, disruptor & creative. thus we create filters and cynicism. // we are very good at saying no ... no to fear, anxiety, the uncomfortable & the pain (the ability to grow), new experiences, // thus pattern matching. // Failure is not an option. Keep trying till you get it right - figured it out. THE LEARNING CURVE! failure is steepest learning curve (entrepreneurship). Thus everyone needs to be exposed to failure and adopt a growth mindset as child. With each failure you get closed to your goal, in case you dont stop & dont make the same mistake twice! // Dream when you are awake. Do it. Say yes to life & opportunities.

The Illusion of Product/Market Fit for SaaS Companies - Feld Thoughts
Myth #3 and myth #4 show up all the time at MRR’s > $1m. You disrupted someone a few years ago which is what caused you to discover product/market fit. Don’t be confused about the world – someone else is gunning for you now that you are the big player in whatever segment you are in. Every time you work on something new, whether it’s a new feature, a new product, or a new product line, recognize that you are searching for incremental product/market fit. The search is a continuous and never ending quest. Don’t confuse illusion with reality.

BBC iPlayer - Everyday Miracles: The Genius of Sofas, Stockings and Scanners - 2. Away
For the "invention" of the bicycle we know today, it needed 3 things (emergence of new materials): seamless! steel tubes (1886), roller chain (1880), and the Pneumatic Tire tire (1888, from John Boyd Dunlop, for his son, to make his ride on his tricycle more comfortable. << vulcanisation of rubber with sulfate). And back then it was heavily marketed to women in time of emancipation. Like the product gives you the freedom you wanted.
