Four for Friday

This will be an occasional series when the week’s readings have been too good not to share. The themes will be strategy, technology, investment and regulation, but in most cases, these are so intertwined that they cannot be separated.

Dharmesh Shah summarises Seth Godin’s start-up insights; for those, who have not met Dharmesh, he is an entrepreneurial superstar himself but very unassuming.

Jeff Nolan on Open Source companies to watch.

Fred Wilson on Feedisation of the Web; also read his first post on Feedisation of the Text User Interface.

Amit on why regulation should be case-specific and not ideologically-driven.

One thought on “Four for Friday

  1. I read no. 1 an no. 4, both being good reads.
    The point about Amit’s post “regulation should be case-specific and not ideology-driven” assumes, at least to me, two things: that regulation is inevitable, necessary and desirable, and also that ideologically driven action is bad. The last is also equally fallible in logic. A good ideology would allow you to make case-specific decisions, and not put every issue under an abstract canopy, regardless of the side effects. It is not that ideology is bad, it is that MOST ideologies are bad, or have major loopholes.
