Levy on BigCo innovation

  • Levy: "To really think big, you can't be at a big company."
  • I was amazed that these words came from Steven Levy, former Newsweek tech reporter, and late of Wired. He's spent a career supporting the myth not just that big ideas can come from big companies, but that they only come from big companies.
  • He was paraphrasing Evan Williams, founder of Twitter and Blogger. But it's still an amazing transformation.
  • Now, I don't expect the press to all of a sudden start reporting on where big ideas actually come from. But it's nice to be able to point to the truth, just once, from such a source.
  • BTW, we're thinking very big at Small Picture. :-)
