    The paenultimus slide : "Do epic shit, or die trying."

    Adding that most of our wheels are square, and that people need to keep inventing new wheels (and stop listening to the no-ers that tell them not to) so that we can more often at least approach some elliptic shapes.

  • You may actually be in favour of MVPs

    When you get to MVP and explain how little sense it makes, you mention the iPhone, which can be seen as an MVP. IIRC the very first iPhone was lacking lots of very common features like MMS and it wasn't meant to run third-party (native) applications in the first place.

    The MMS support was probably already on the roadmap (as in an MVP) and the third-party apps support was born from feedback (as in a successful MVP).

    I get your point, but I think overall you may be in favour of MVPs, and that "MVP" doesn't mean that your product should lack polish and completeness wrt the "minimum viable scope".
