Essay on startups

Paul Graham has some interesting essays on his website... his latest one hiring is obsolete hits the nail right on the head. In the past all the companies I have worked for were nothing but proxies for my skills. Working for them taught me more about sales and marketing than about my core skills which is technology. Whatever I have learnt was my efforts and no value add from whom I worked for.... so if you have any good ideas and the will to make it happen.... go do it... it is better to have tried and failed than have not tried at all.

Interesting view from Seth

Seth Godin always has something interesting to say... his view on small versus big post in this new internet age is an eye opener...

Today, little companies often make more money than big companies. Little churches grow faster than worldwide ones. Little jets are way faster (door to door) than big ones.
Today, Craigslist (18 employees) is the fourth most visited site according to some measures. They are partly owned by eBay (more than 4,000 employees) which hopes to stay in the same league, traffic-wise. Theyre certainly not growing           nearly as fast.
Small means the founder makes a far greater percentage of the customer interactions. Small means the founder is close to the decisions that matter and can make them, quickly.
Small is the new big because small gives you the flexibility to change the business model when your competition changes theirs.
Small means you can tell the truth on your blog.
Small means that you can answer email from your customers.
A small restaurant has an owner who greets you by name.
A small venture fund doesnt have to fund big bad ideas in order to get capital doing work. They can make small investments in tiny companies with good (big) ideas.
Is it better to be the head of Craigslist or the head of UPS?
Small is the new big only when the person running the small thinks big.
Dont wait. Get small. Think big.

Couldn't have agreed more with Seth.
