Kevin Rose, Mike Arrington and Mathew Ingram on Silicon Valley Failure

by Larry Chiang on May 29, 2015

By Larry Chiang
Fascinated by Silicon Valley and failure. There are a couple hashtags I use to curate ‘entrepreneurship failing forward’ #DuckCh9Bk (Laura Beck’s is #Kickstopper

Kevin Rose (@kevinrose)
Silicon Valley dances around failure. It’s how we learn/improve. Digg was a failure, Path was a failure. Embrace it and try again, ya know?
Michael Arrington (@arrington)
@kevinrose I don’t think people need to do the scarlet letter thing with a fail in order to learn from it though. And Digg was not a fail
Mathew Ingram (@mathewi)
@arrington @kevinrose: I agree with you, Mike, but in what way was Digg not a fail?
Michael Arrington (@arrington)
@mathewi @kevinrose couple reasons. First, it was revolutionary and changed how we think about certain things. Second, Reddit cloned it
Mathew Ingram (@mathewi)
@arrington @kevinrose: definitely revolutionary I agree — so I guess its influence was great even though the entity itself failed
Kevin Rose (@kevinrose)
@chrismessina @arrington @mathewi agreed you can measure success quite a few ways. arguably many more important than a huge financial outcome
Engineering 145 is #ENGR145
Cross the Chasm From the Right is very #ENGR145. CTCFTR is a technique meant to countermeasure why stuff fails
CTCFTR is based on five of my mentors. Mainly, Mark McCormack. He started “IMG”
IMG is International Management Group. Models must fail forward all the time.
