<blockquote>1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
- Anything that’s invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
Anything invented after you’re thirty-five is against the natural order of things.
It is nearly two years since I read this post;
Written by J P Rangaswami, it like so many of his posts, is well thought through while providing a great story and of course well written. What more can a boy ask for ? Well – since you ask, JP often throws great musical segways into his posts. Sadly, no such reference in this particular offering. See – you can’t always get what you want. Though it is interesting to note that he brings his post to an end with the musical term ‘coda’. And it was in fact the coda that made the connection for me.
While writing this post, I noticed that someone else had linked to one of the year-old posts. Went investigating, and found this site, Platform Thinking. Excellent stuff. And the video at the end of the post is well worth watching. I will make references to what they say there in my next post.
I did what JP said. That means that I have been following Sangeet Paul Choudary for nearly two years now. I reference his thinking a lot, bought multiple copies of his book to share with others. So I am delighted to find that today he has published; The Platform Manifesto – a 176 slide deck adapted from that book, reproduced below. BUT. More importantly – why not just go buy the book. It is excellent.
