“The idea that you get something out into the market early and see whether people like it, and ask them questions about it, and try to make improvements about it, as opposed to trying to build a year's worth of functionality in one go, was fundamental to our success”

Philip Rosedale

Founder at SecondLife

“As always, there's little to replace really loving and having a tremedous desire to see what you're doing work”
