ex machina

will and vision will hopefully [but not probably] put the last nail on the coffin of that myth-of-myths - "the first mover advantage":

"Everybody thinks that it’s the market pioneers who have the best name recognition, the highest market share, and the most enduring market leadership....Right? In order to test the truth of this conventional wisdom, Gerard Tellis and Peter Golder carried out a decade-long historical analysis of 66 markets, as they evolved over the decades. Their discoveries, as reported for the first time in this book, will shock the business community. After exposing the limitations of prior studies that extolled the success of pioneers, the authors find that pioneers mostly fail, have low market share, and are rarely enduring market leaders. In addition, they found that the current trend of staking everything on getting there first all-too-often leads companies to embrace a disastrous strategy of rushing to market with incomplete, inferior, and flawed products."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
