Desi astfel de povesti pot inspira tinerii antreprenori de pretutindeni - tind sa dau dreptate unui comentariu de pe HN:
Este important sa vedem si astfel de povesti de succes - insa cred ca este la fel de important sa aflam si despre problemele pe care le-au intampinat si modul in care au trecut peste ele.jaysonelliot 7 hours ago | link
While stories like his are interesting novelties, I feel like they are distracting and counterproductive to the startup scene at large.
Instead of focusing on what Nick D’Aloisio has actually created, perhaps looking at this "algorithmic invention, which takes long-form stories and shortens them for readers using smartphones" and digging into what makes it special, the story is all about the jackpot of millions he's lucked into.I'd love to know more about the technical details behind Summly, or what Nick went through to create it.This kind of lottery mentality just gives the general public the impression that there's a gold rush going on, and causes the kind of magical thinking that's similar to teenagers all hoping to become the next rock star or sports legend, or in this case, startup founder, that will make millions, focusing on the money instead of asking themselves what they want to do with their lives.For every teenage millionaire that hits the startup jackpot, there are thousands of hard-working entrepreneurs that build for the love of building. I'm not saying Nick D'Aloisio isn't doing what he does out of genuine passion - I don't know anything about him, I expect he's very driven and geniune - but I would rather focus on the work than the jackpot.
