“The world’s largest problems are our greatest opportunities” I came across this idea while reading about Ray Kurzweil and his new employer, Google. Imagine having a mind like his, and now unlimited resources to test the limits of our technology and capabilities.
That’s a lot of work and you probably won’t get funded, so why don’t we just build a startup instead? That what this guy did, he put a small aquarium pump and filter inside a coffee mug,then marketed the shit out of it. He assembled a world class team of designers and engineers to do it. And damn, did he make a hip video or what? Check out those Warbly Parkers. Great name as well, too bad the actual product doesn’t look very useful. It looks like something you get for a present, use twice, then put in the closet.
Seriously, how do people get away with this kind of stuff? Marketing…. marketing…. today’s lesson is marketing. Something I know I need to work on.
