“I always laugh when people point at Google (NSDQ: GOOG) and say, ‘you’re doing this thing and it’s failed’. GREAT. If you’re not failing, you’re not taking big enough risks. Clearly, you don’t want to bet the farm – but, with digital you don’t have to bet the farm, you can do lots of small experiments all the time.”

Tired: Failing
