Paul Graham has another essay up. His last sets were not too bad but

But the just-do-it model does have advantages. It seems the clear winner for
generating wealth and technical innovations (which are practically the same

the first to make something, it helps to work fast.

Paul has some good incites on what makes the designs go well but I think
it also feeds back into the average consumer culture so Americans get
impatient regarding products. DYSKE happens to mention an interesting
