As an Asian Engineer Entrepreneur, Go Partially Retarded

by Larry Chiang on December 31, 2012

By Larry Chiang

I pattern recognize.

As an entrepreneur with a last name that rhymes with Wang, I pattern replicate. As a Chinese person with an IQ well north of 180, I have gained adoption and distribution by going partially retarded.

People connect with Larry Chiang, IQ 88. He is approachable and fluffy like a Shih Tzu with an IQ sub 90

That phrase, “partially retarded” is (artistically) signature stated by Morton Downey Jr’s character in Tropic Thunder. He was mentoring a fellow thespian and taught, “Never go full retard”.

Charles Huang and his co-founder and brother Kai Huang sold DDR Pads. They made $3-4,000,000 selling Dance Dance Revolution accessory physical pads.

Without VC money, they sold it for over $100,000,000. Read about it in TechCrunch

I recommend that if you’re taking ENGR 145, you should pattern iterate their pattern.

There is a full transcript of Charles Huang here

Watch and take notes on the YouTube video of Charles Huang, Founder, Guitar Hero speaking to engineering undergrads

Study other patterns you will need to replicate… ENGR145’s Anchor Concepts are “Lemonade and Gua Gua Guacamole”

They move you to the right on the entrepreneur bell curve
