    Innovation or... not?

    There's a very thin line between actually having an innovation or not. We're starting up a company, and there doesn't seem to be very many people who find our idea innovative or something new. People just don't get it. It sort of seems obvious to the point of being lame. But it doesn't exist.

    I'm reading a book called "Leaders" by Warren Bennis and Burt Nanus. They're telling me that by definition, an innovation is something that is not accepted at first. Its an idea that looks foolish, impractical or unfeasible. I guess our idea falls under foolish. I remember reading that Mark Zuckerberg was very unsure if the idea of Facebook would catch on. That he was very close to stopping the development several times.

    So I think it must be like that. If you want to create something new, you have to be unsure about the success. People shouldn't get it right away. Get the proto out and then ask them again. Wow.
