The Awesomeness Manifesto

,----[ Quote ]
| I'd like to advance a hypothesis: awesomeness is the new 
| innovation.
| Let's face it. "Innovation" feels like a relic of the industrial 
| era. And it just might be the case that instead of chasing 
| innovation, we should be innovating innovation â that innovation 
| needs innovation. Why? When we examine the economics of 
| innovation, three reasons emerge.

| EDAG, a German company, partners with the automotive industry to 
| produce models or prototypes of vehicles for the future.  With 
| the EDAG âLight Car-Open Sourceâ, EDAG has produced a zero 
| emission electric car that is configurable inside and out.


"And let's face facts. innovation has never been Microsoft's strong suite.
We're much better at ripping off our competitors. For example, we did not
invent either ASP or IE, we bought them!"

                  antitrust trial

"[Microsoft's business strategy is] copy the product that others innovate, put
them into Windows so they can't be unplugged, and then give it away for free."
