- Tech/Skill is never a problem.
- Only valueless things make money.
- Nothing useful makes a profit.
These ideas have put me into a difficult situation. I should lead the team to develop useful products or follow the fashion? The two goals are mutually exclusive though they can also compromise to each other to a certain extent. The most discouraging thing is that most managers are drowned by words from lie tellers while the voice of truth is left unheard. That’s probably why there are so many companies titled Web2.0 in China. This again proves a sad fact which have been proved countless times in history – People who know the fact seldom have a chance to speak.
Web2.0 is only a buzzword invented by a business man. The driving force behind is unchangably bound to value – value to end users who eventually pay money. Being ignorent of the core values, a company may aslo succeed in profits in the current market evironment for a short time. But it’s only splendor in void. When everything goes back to piece, there will be only castles burning and ashes on the ground.
