How to Get Startup Ideas by Paul Graham. Choice quote: “When you have an idea for a startup, ask yourself: who wants this right now? Who wants this so much that they’ll use it even when it’s a crappy version one made by a two-person startup they’ve never heard of? If you can’t answer that, the idea is probably bad.”
I’ve been sending Paul’s article to a lot of people recently who have been asking me for advice… too many people are building something that’s only 10% or 20% better than the status quo. That’s not good enough. See Peter Diamandis’s “10X Cheaper, 10X Faster, 1000X Better”.
