DHH: Don’t Scale

The voice of reason is always refreshing. Case in point, David Heinemeier Hansson…

“The business smarts is when you don’t blow the farm before the crap shot[sic] has turned sure bet. Fail cheap. Because odds are you’re going to. And you need to have your shirt for the second round.

So. Don’t scale. Don’t worry about five 9’s or even two. Worry about getting something to a point where there’s reason to worry about it.”
