Every day I get messages from recuiters about “opportunities”.
Every single day.
Thing is, they’re boring. Come work with us and build the new, better whatever. Nothing new, nothing disruptive. All about copying are remixing the current status quo. I remember when startups did stuff nobody else had thought of. Is it just because we’ve thought of everything? No it’s not.
It’s the cowardace and greed of the current generation of entreprenuer and those who fund them. They know who hit a home run in the past and they want to get onto that train. Screw building a business, screw making something just copy the market leader.
Well that’s not good enough. Being the next Facebook or Zynga or Google (and there will be a next, never doubt that. Just like Facebook was the next MySpace) is a boring goal.
Disrupting the experience. Building for the future. That’s where I want to be.
