Great post on product development, by Dustin Curtis:
In startups, the mantra “release early, release often” is constantly chanted as justification for shipping crappy products. But the truth is this–and I have personally witnessed it a hundred times–if a team feels personally obsessed with a product or company’s success, and if they genuinely love what they are doing, they will spend every waking minute perfecting and fixing whatever is needed before anything is released. This is probably similar to performers on Broadway; once the tickets are sold, the actors won’t allow themselves to put on a bad show. They will practice obsessively, into the night, until they are confident in their ability to deliver a great performance. What drives those performers is the same thing that drove Teller to visit an entomologist while researching a five-minute magic trick.
Great #design for the made with paper blog
Every once in a while a product will arrive that will simply transform the current state of the industry.
A product is defined as follows,
“produced by labour or effort”
Those rare occurrences when experiencing an exceptional product design as a consumer are so difficult to articulate, yet so familiar. Intense focus, drive, ingenuity and incredible effort produce this magic all startups are searching for. Whether it be the perfect sound, device or experience, producers and consumers are looking for that moment.
That moment when the human experience is so intense it makes your life 10x better with this product.
