Thank you for coming back.
I think Doug is acting the acting the part of a concern troll, or like a broken record, and the thread looks like an excuse to “soap box”:
It’s obvious that Doug feels that it is important to warn us against blindly believing what the players are saying, as he repeats that what feels like 10 times a week. Here he is doing that in his own thread, not off-topic in other threads, and he got some helpful replies to his purported question so we got something out of it, so an overall positive I think, as long as everyone is able to see everyone’s else’s biases. Which I think they mostly can.
@dougselsam, I think a reason for your doubt in the players is from not knowing how new disruptive product development and market penetration works.
I can’t find it now, but there is a talk out there that explains it nicely. There’s like a 99 percent fail rate between the first idea and 2 percent market penetration, and before WW2 it took something like 15 years, after WW2 something like 9 years. Maybe the talk was by Clayton M. Christensen?
