Levy on BigCo innovation

: "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. :-)
