“I never use anyone else’s products. I never do a competitive matrix, ever. My entire life, I’ve never done it. I could care less what other people make. I have no interest whatsoever. I mean, I literally don’t think there’s anything to be learned by other people’s stuff.”

That explains so, so, so much about why Color was a dizzying, runaway, spectacular success astounding failure straight out of the gate. (via chartier)

This is an amazingly stupid attitude for someone trying to enter one of today’s most competitive markets. My only question now is: How did this guy manage to revceive funding?
