It's even worse than it appears.

  • True story. My company was having a party in a suite in the St Francis Hotel in SF in 1980-something. Guy Kawasaki, then head evangelist at Apple hands me a list of feature requests for ThinkTank. #
  • He said the list was from Jean-Louis Gassée, the new head of product at Apple who was moving to Cupertino from France. I handed him the list back, and said I want to meet him, knowing he would want to meet me. Finally, an exec at a tech company who used the product. #
  • This advice I would give to anyone in any industry, but never has there been an industry more in need of being their own users than the news industry. They are immune to ideas from outside. This is what's crippling their industry, not the web or whatever. #
