Work on stuff that matters

>>Work on stuff that matters

Every once in awhile I’m reminded of the original purpose of a blog (WebLog, that is): To comment on interesting stuff you find on the Web.

When three separate sources pointed to the same Tim O’Reilly post, I figured it was worth a read (and, anyway, I like the man and his company very much). Interesting stuff.

To sum it up, kinda: Riotously successful entities start out with impossibly lofty, outward-facing ambitions. At some point they turn inward and start hoarding their own success, instead of continuing toward the goal. If they can’t get back to that outward-facing PoV, they grow moribund and eventually die.

Wonder if this guy’s read Gibbon’s History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire? Hmmm.
