@aral it’s the model VCs push for. Scale as fast as possible. Don’t worry about revenue. Eventually we will turn to ads.
@1ll173r47 @aral Wallstreet's obsession with growth over *EVERYTHING ELSE* is so toxic. It makes good, functional businesses corrupt or causes them to falter and stumble when they were otherwise healthy.
How much growth can you expect out of entrenched giants like Microsoft or Apple? Yet they're constantly being pushed and prodded to expand their empires further.
