Sto leggendomi Getting Real di 37signals dal quale estraggo il seguente bellissimo aneddoto relativo a Steve Jobs:
Steve Jobs gave a small private presentation about the iTunes Music Store to
some independent record label people. My favorite line of the day was when
people kept raising their hand saying, “Does it do [x]?”, “Do you plan to add
[y]?”. Finally Jobs said, “Wait wait – put your hands down. Listen: I know you
have a thousand ideas for all the cool features iTunes could have. So do we. But
we don’t want a thousand features. That would be ugly. Innovation is not about
saying yes to everything. It’s about saying NO to all but the most crucial features.

and HostBaby (from Say NO by default)
Ecco perché Steve Jobs è decisamente più avanti di tutti gli altri.
