It’s encouraging to read that I’m not one of the few with this point of view. While I don’t think the entirety of Silicon Valley, for example, is wrapped up and overcome with a ‘me too’ syndrome, you can’t help but notice the talk being around dollar amounts in comparison to what the product or service actually did for the world.
In my opinion these circumstances are breeding shallow efforts with a simple goal of more money. What the heck is the difference between $10M and $400M? What drastic effect is the amount of money going to have on what you do with it?
