We all have seen the commentary from economists, speculators, and journalists. The messages vary from gloom-and-doom to best-opportunity-ever. Warren Buffet talks about being afraid when everyone is buying, and buying when everyone panics. Jason Calacanis talks about tightening our belts (but also talks about opportunity). The general message from venture capitalists seems to be “stop being silly, and start making rational business decisions.” So what are you seeing in your neck of the woods?
Economic Impacts Across The Globe
When it comes to software product success, the rules of the game have not really changed. Deliver distinctive value for your customers, and they will want your products. The playbook, however, may have changed a lot. Or not. I would like us to share some anecdotal data with each other. Tyner Blain is read by thousands (can you believe it?!) of people around the world. People from 115 countries have been here just in the last month. 176 countries if we start at the beginning of the year. That’s a lot of global perspective.
