Government is like that one naggy wife that never learned how to value anything and perpetually needs more and more capital in order to achieve mediocrity.
I have revived my personal blog on behalf of the company, because the World needs my brain.
Our content was the MVP. A long time ago. People so uncreative these days, can’t think about anything.
Look through the content over time. It looks like it continued to adjust & change. Almost like it was reiterating based on data, while a different company of mine was pivoting around a revenue model. Just like technology does. Somehow, it amassed a bunch of users!
Then it hit high growth rates, just like a technology startup does. Why is that? Is it luck? Why was it able to grow so fast, with seemingly nothing?
Yes, this is sarcasm.
I think there is a very interesting disconnect in how the tech community deciphers data and trends.
On one hand you could say co-living is a trend and startups go crazy. But the real story behind the scenes is no one actually likes co-living or being stuck at home till they’re 30; people just feel forced to do something because housing cost is so high and they’re sacked with student debt.
Perfect example. It’s one of those situations as a company, you get to make a choice between following a trend or solving a real problem.
There are many words I can use to describe various parts- machine learning, singularity, decentralization, blockchain, etc.
Buzzwords do visions a disservice though. I don’t learn the terminology because once you do, you’ve warped your own vision. You start comparing it to definitions instead of what it actually should be.
Browsing Quora, I notice people that declare “no one wants to steal your idea” and “execution is everything”.
These people are stupid.
Ideas have always been stolen. Kellogg vs Post, Jobs vs Gates…to name a few. The McDonald’s brothers created competition by giving free tours of their new assembly line idea for food because “ideas are worthless”. Among those ordinary folks who joined a tour? Founders of Taco Bell and Burger King. Thank goodness Kroc wasn’t that stupid, otherwise no one would’ve made money. I’ve successfully spawned numerous fake Plan to Start’s just by talking to measure the spread of ideas. To understand that ideas are copied and stolen, is to understand people are unholy and choose not to think for themselves wherever possible.
KFC is supposedly a proprietary recipe that only 2 executives in the company know. But the real secret, is it was never the recipe. In the 1950′s, it was Sander’s invention of the pressure fryer that could reduce cooking time of chicken from 40 minutes to 8 minutes. He marketed it with a persona he developed for himself. This was technology that had never been built before, but could easily be duplicated. So they instead attributed their success to a secret recipe as a means to deter competitors. It worked and people then became obsessed with trying to steal and duplicate this recipe while KFC took the market.
Don’t actually analyze or research current problems, if that’s not already obvious by now. Would be like analyzing horses/buggies while you’re building cars in 1900.
Yeah sure you hustle, hustle yourself right into oblivion.
Second daughter’s father part-time college job (GenX) was delivering papers for law firms at $22 an hour in 1990. Which he says was a good but fairly common job for University students at that time. If a Cumulative inflation rate of 106.2% should’ve made that $45.36 per hour by now.
First daughter’s part-time college job (GenZ) in 2020 is working at CVS Health for $11 per hour. Now considered a good but fairly common job for University students (she works with several).
Same city, same university, and economic class of family.
