I was truly impressed...
A friend recently sent me a link to a powerful essay on the state of the world of start-ups. It is so powerful, and so carefully crafted, that I prefer not to offer you sound-bite tidbits from it. Instead, I urge you to read it yourself - HERE.
There is value in it for everybody in the start-up world: entrepreneurs, investors, dreamers, coders, and commentators.
And when you finish with that, you may want to re-visit "boring stuff that people actually need."
I personally find no reason to admire nor desire to emulate fortunes made in mindless electronic time-wasting and heartless financial arbitrage. They are both selfish drains on the social and economic fabric of the entire globe.
I prefer enterprises with actual hearts, rather than cheesy red icons.
