Here are some dose of inspiration that I've managed to garner so far along my Internet business journey and undoubtedly they are nothing but SO TRUE!!!!
1. One of the co-founder of reddit.com (one of the top website in the world and America) says, "Don't try to build an awesome product in the start itself. That barely happens. Start small and then go on building on it."
2. "Nobody should start to undertake a large project. You start with a small trivial project, and you should never expect it to get large. If you do, you'll just overdesign and generally think it is more important than it likely is at that stage. Or worse, you might be scared away by the sheer size of the work you envision. So start small, and think about the details. Don't think about some big picture and fancy design. If it doesn't solve some fairly immediate need, it's almost certainly over-designed. And don't expect people to jump in and help you. That's not how these things work. You need to get something half-way useful first, and then others will say "hey, that almost works for me", and they'll get involved in the project." - Linux Times (2004-10-25), Linus Torvalds (Main man behind Linux Operating System)
3. It's hard to tell with these Internet startups if they're really interested in building companies or if they're just interested in the money. I can tell you, though: If they don't really want to build a company, they won't luck into it. That's because it's so hard that if you don't have a passion, you'll give up. -Steve Jobs
4. For Facebook, though, hacker means something different. It’s an ideal that permeates the company’s culture. It explains:
- the push to try new ideas (even if they fail),
- and to promote new products quickly (even if they’re imperfect).
The hacker approach has made Facebook one of the world’s most valuable Internet companies.
Hackers “believe that something can always be better, and that nothing is ever complete,” Zuckerberg explains. “They just have to go fix it - often in the face of people who say it’s impossible or are content with the status quo.”
