[qi:006] A man is known by the company he keeps. Extending that analogy, a blog is known by the quality of commenters it attracts. There is nothing more rewarding that reading insights that extend, challenge and enhance the original thesis published by us. Over the past few days, we have attracted such great comments from our ultra-smart readers that were were compelled to highlight a few:
- Jonathan in response to With Latitude, Google fires another salvo at mobile operators writes: “..interface design for LBSs are very difficult. everyone seems to emphasize the map, but thats very difficult to use pragmatically.”
- Ryan Hardin in response to With Latitude, Google fires another salvo at mobile operators writes: “Microsoft’s best move at this point would be to purchase Loopt.”
- Patrick is very evolved in response to Box.net will refocus on business users: “The barrier all these online storage companies still face is access. The infrastructure will place an natural market cap on the number of possible users they can have.”
- Rob Adler in response to Google & the big ideas writes: “Despite claims from people in my profession, the reality is that there are very few ideas that meet the standard of being disruptive.”
- Mark Blafin in response to Google & the big ideas writes: “..the vast majority of new services they roll out are ‘me too’ in nature. But, that is THE point.” Jonathan, Dave, Erik and others echo similar sentiments as well.
- A.B. Dada in response to Does perfection have to have a price? writes: Perfection is fleeting. Your goal today, when met tomorrow, falls short of the next goal.
These comments are a mere sample of great discussions we host on a daily basis on our blog(s). It is these comments which help us keep our focus and strive for excellence. I hope you will continue to lend us your voice.
