I first remember FAKEGRIMLOCK from the comments on Fred Wilson’s VC blog, making his points in his unique all-caps grammar. Today I ran across a guest post by FAKEGRIMLOCK on Eric Ries’s Startup Lessons Learned, talking about startups as vision:
VISION IS PUT FIST IN RIGHT PLACE, BREAK WORLD IN HALF.
When I first started thinking about this blog, vision was the word I couldn’t get out of my head.
Vision seems to be critical to every element of putting a dent in the universe: you must be able to see something, fully formed, as it does not yet exist, and then bring it into existence by hacking away at reality until your vision appears.
