Breakpoint â€” Bigger is Not Better
Geege Schuman stashed this in Farnam Street
Jeff Stibelâ€™s bookÂ Breakpoint: Why the Web will Implode, Search will be Obsolete, and Everything Else you Need to Know about Technology is in Your BrainÂ is an interesting read. The book is about â€śunderstanding what happens after a breakpoint. Breakpoints canâ€™t and shouldnâ€™t be avoided, but they can be identified.â€ť
Growth isnâ€™t bad. Itâ€™s just not as good as we think.
Nature has a lesson for us if we care to listen: the fittest species are typically the smallest. The tinest insects often outlive the largest lumbering animals. Ants, bees, and cockroaches all outlived the dinosaurs and will likely outlive our race. â€¦ The deadliest creature is the mosquito, not the lion. Bigger is rarely better in the long run. What is missingâ€”what everyone is missingâ€”is that the unit of measure for progress isnâ€™t size, itâ€™s time.
bigger is not better unless we're talking about eyelashes!! Â woohoo!! Â that guy hit the jackpot!
