Godin: Software

Seth Godin has five thoughts.

2. Removing features to make software simpler doesn't always make it better.

Preach it.

3. It's entirely possible to find great software that isn't from a huge company.

When was the last time a great new application debuted from a huge company? I’m not asking about “currently leading the league,” I’m talking about “MVP as a rookie with a ticket to Cooperstown.” Apple did it twice in the ’80s (MacPaint, HyperCard), Lotus did it with 1-2-3 (but was Lotus huge then?). Microsoft did it with Word and Excel, I suppose.

What am I forgetting?

5. Most of all, software as a whole just isn't good enough.

Hear him.
