Can aphorisms be stolen?
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Zuck!
Another thought about Mark Zuckerberg's letter in Facebook's S-1.
The day after the filing, Zuckerberg published this photo on his Timeline:
The slogan was so good that TechCrunch wrote an article about it.
So then a humble Puerto Rican entrepreneur made the posters for his Puerto Rican startup community because he was inspired by them.
The entrepreneur was then savaged by a Facebook designer for stealing -- and selling -- them.
Then the Facebook designer apologized and Creative Commons Attribution licensed the Facebook slogan posters.
- Done is better than perfect.
- Fortune favors the bold.
- Move fast and break things.
- Proceed and be bold.
- Stay focused and keep shipping.
- What would you do if you weren't afraid?
I sure as heck hope Facebook is licensing the DESIGN not the SLOGAN. Otherwise they'll have to sue Virgil for "fortune favors the bold".
I like Done is better than perfect the best...
