Don’t Build a Startup, Build a Movement

How to move the masses by going beyond selling just software.

“That’s bullshit,” our CTO replies. “MailChimp’s product isn’t any better than the rest; it’s just another tool to send your newsletters. Why spend $200/month when their competitors offer the same thing for a few bucks?”

But he keeps beating me back with technical explanations I don’t fully get.
