BUILD FOR THE FUTURE — NOT THE PRESENT
Here’s a common mistake tech entrepreneurs make — they build something based on the technology they experience today. By the time their concoction hits the market they are woefully outdated.
Alan Kay, master-inventor at the fabled Xerox PARC, described this in his incredible DEMO Conference talk “The Future Doesn’t Have To Be Incremental
” as the fact that you can buy tomorrows technology, it might just cost you more.
Which is precisely what you should do: Build for the future, not the present; because tomorrow will become today when your product hits the market.
Build What Matters.
