Competence Isnt The Same As Imagination

16Sep08

I am baffled every time I hear people say something wont work – out of pure opinion and guesswork.

I had a meeting recently and the guy said “you cant do this, you cant do that”. The best part was, he was just guessing.

He said “how can you gain a competitive advantage by offering less than the competition?” For the answer see www.37signals.com they took on a Microsoft product, make a lot of money, are privately funded, are freaking amazing and have a competitive advantage by offering less intentionally.

This is the way online business should work and eventually will. Just because it has’nt yet demonstrated it works, doesn’t mean it cant or wont.
