Saturday afternoon, Silicon Valley

The relentless pace of technological innovation: 10 highly talented and dedicated individuals, bringing a new product to market.

Only a limited number of people will ever experience this act of creation -- but progress owes almost everything to them.

Malthusian trap. The Soul of a New Machine.

Carl Fox (Martin Sheen, in the movie Wall Street): "Stop going for the easy buck and start producing something with your life. Create, instead of living off the buying and selling of others."

Good luck on the new product launch! Not that such a high quality team would need such a lowly and mere-mortal element as luck. ;-)

"Better to be lucky than good" :-)

success vs ability

And good luck to you guys too!

Agreed, but what if your "creation" is, for example, a better way for others to buy and sell ?
