Fred Wilson posted a note on the redesign of his personal blog. I think (eyeballing) somewhere between 30-35% of all the comments there are product feedback on Disqus; most of them in the context of disqus + mobile.
This is engagement gold to a Disqus product manager. Of course you need a thick skin but the quality of the feedback and depth of thinking was amazing. Too bad more VC’s don’t assist their portfolio companies like this.
"What causes people to be poets instead of bankers? When you put that into products people can sense that. And they love it." - Steve Jobs
From his interview with Robert X. Cringely - as seen in this post by Luke Wroblewski
"Microsoft’s new CEO finds relaxation by reading poetry, in all forms and by poets who are both Indian and American. “It’s like code,” he says. “You’re trying to take something that can be described in many, many sentences and pages of prose, but you can convert it into a couple lines of poetry and you still get the essence, so it’s that compression.” Indeed, he says, the best code is poetry.” - Satya Nadella
From his bio page on the microsoft web site.
Another thing that is different is how data-driven every entrepreneur today seems to be. It has its place, but it has its limits, too. Remember, Steve Jobs was completely driven by instinct.
To some degree what I think is happening today with entrepreneurs is they are substituting volumes of data for thinking about what are the key questions I need to ask myself, and then going to find the answers to those questions."
