There seems to be a fundamental difference between building a physical product vs building a software solution. For example, if you were asked to design a computer mouse, then I am pretty sure that you would come up with a design that is semi-ok. You would probably know roughly how big the device should be… Continue reading Why Building Software / Apps Is Hard And What To Do About It
To be able to make a point with very few words, is a skill.
The Anonymous Masses
When creating a new product or service it's tempting to set out to please the masses. But most of the time this is just a form of hiding. It takes much more guts to make something to please a specific person or a specific group of people you care about. If you go to a… Continue reading The Anonymous Masses
