He explained the basics and business of preparing an API with a live demo.

Changing Strategies Not Goals

In all the technological chaos, it is hard for large companies to change strategies and tactics and keep an eye on their goals.

Amazon started selling printed books (content). To sell the books they mailed them. To keep track of everything, they built their own cloud network. Now they sell digital books over their cloud network on their own Kindle devices. This is an excellent example of how a large company can survive by changing the way they do things but not their goal, to sell content.

Oct. 18, 2010 The New Yorker

On Oct. 18, 2010 The New Yorker’s James Surowiecki wrote “The Next Level” about category killers store chains that destroy independent small businesses. Toys R Us, CompUSA, Circuit City, Borders and Blockbuster all led their categories by wiping out the competition. They are all in trouble or out of business. Having killed their categories, have they killed themselves. Blockbuster failed to make the transition from bricks to clicks fast enough. Netflix, however, dominated the mailing DVD market but managed to transition into video streaming by moving quickly if not smoothly.

Sean Wilentz wrote “Confounding Fathers” about the Tea Party roots in 1950s McCarthy era paranoia.

Ben McGrath wrote “Search And Destroy” about Gawker Media founder Nick Denton.

Adam Gopnik wrote “Market Man” about Adam Smith, who unlike what some people think, thought you should be nice and generous with people.
