Entrepreneurs shoot for Mars

Pierre Omidyar writes about going to Mars (but he could be writing about entrepreneurship), “Having fewer resources usually means you are forced to innovate. It also means you can avoid the trap of top-down design, which usually only works if you’re solving a well-known problem. Since as far as I know, we haven’t been to Mars that often, going to Mars does not qualify as a ‘well-known problem.’ That’s why I’m most optimistic about these sorts of scrappy, bottom-up approaches (relatively speaking, anyway) than I am about top-down, big-budget bureaucratic approaches.”
