“The problem is quite simple: quality technical information is increasingly difficult to find. A chief cause for this is the sheer amount of content being published – increasingly so on personal blogs, which are outside of anyone’s jurisdiction. In fact blogging is so easy and effective that countless clueless developers are now technical authors. A dangerously high percentage of developers will gladly follow any advice they find on the web. The noise to signal ratio is just too high.”

The Hardest Lessons for Startups To Learn

Filed under: Uncategorized — dannywahlquist @ 5:06 pm

"The startups we've funded so far are pretty quick, but they seem quicker to learn some lessons than others. I think it's because some things about startups are kind of counterintuitive.

We've now invested in enough companies that I've learned a trick for determining which points are the counterintuitive ones: they're the ones I have to keep repeating."
