Why? Because the company stopped innovating. The company got big, and big companies just aren't creative. There exist counterexamples to this, but in general, great things are accomplished by small groups of people who are driven, who have unity of purpose. The more people involved, the slower and stupider their union is.

And there's another factor involved, which is that you can divide our industry into two kinds of people: those who want to go work for a company to make it successful, and those who want to go work for a successful company. Netscape's early success and rapid growth caused us to stop getting the former and start getting the latter.

Starbucks readies music download service

Starbucks is essentially pitching itself against high street record retailers. Why buy CDs in Virgin or Tower when you can create your own compilations while you're enjoying your coffee? it asks. Certainly Starbucks' weekly customer count of around 30 million individuals provides a far greater walk-through than any record store gets.

Про пять компаний, которые упоминал вчера



+ D-Link, видимо.

На самом деле еще есть Nokia, но это совсем святое :-) Найдите что-то похожее у них всех. D-Link новичок в этом сборище личных предпочтений. Остальные там уже как минимум по полгода.

За последние 30 минут я общался через интернет с пятью людьми. Четверо из них были подключены к сети через ADSL от МТУ :)
