I read 2 interesting analogies in my RSS feeds today and I thought I’d share them in the form of a small post (I love small posts). They encompass 2 very active topics in my mind lately: the iPad and Entrepreneurship. Here they are:
- When people say the iPad is only a over sized iPhone or iPod touch, here’s a rebuttal: Is a sword an over sized knife? No, right? It looks probably similar but it serves different purposes and was conceived to fulfill different purposes. Thanks to Eduardo Arcos for constantly pointing it out.
- This weekend I was again confronted with the different perspectives of entrepreneurship in Mexico and in the US and was impressed at how differently it is understood and practiced in both countries. Don Dodge in an excellent post about the natural evolution of startups shares a bit of advice he gave once to an entrepreneur about not losing focus on a core product to be able to innovate and change the game: “When you are on an elephant hunt, don’t shoot at the squirrels. It wastes ammunition and scares away the elephants”. This is definitely something I would suggest to my fellow countrymen when they’re starting up a company. This and oh, yeah, get an MBA at Babson.
