Creating Original and Non-original Softwares

The Original School

 "ambition,""revolutions," "revolutionary"
"original," "radical"
"creativity," "innovation," "lateral thinking,"
"invention," "reinvention," "disruption,"
"leadership," "platform leadership," "leapfrogging," "blue ocean strategy,"
"positioning," "re-positioning,"
"market domination,"

The Non-Original School

Fast Seconds
Entrepreneurial Judo
Busting profit pool a la Michael Dell, Dell CEO
The margin, the opportunity a la Jeff Bezos, Amazon CEO.

The Honest School

  1. Einstein (in paraphrase) : Originality is nothing but forgetting one's sources.
  2. Scott Adam (in paraphrase) : Originality = theft + lack of talent + time
  3. Bruce Lee (in paraphrase) : Origin of the technique doesn't matter. Just express yourself honestly, truthfully.

The Deep School

  1. An old German tract that suggests , for three whole days, shutting out the world, listening to one's own thoughts and recording them faithfully. 
  2. Go into yourself and see how deep the place is from which your life flows: Rainer Maria Rilke


  1. We wish you all the abilities to create all kinds of software: original, copycat, deep or honest, or otherwise!

    All the best...

  2. I like the "Honest" and "Deep" approaches.. Can you share something easier and funnier?
