the internet has no single controlling authority by design. it is wide and flat, marked by constant change and movement. it seems analogous to the american frontier – but its not murderous since its mainly populated by semi-autistic nerds.
it favors and values single minded determination and a multidisciplinary/roll up your sleeves approach to solving problems/creating disruptions/upsetting authority/creating new opportunities. that’s the american ethos and the web often reflects that — its citizen kane with a compute not a printing press.
creating products on the web is most effective when individuals or small teams are allowed to focus on creating/disrupting without interference; its basement/dorm room style of product incubation. thats exactly why groupon’s founder created a mock bedroom in the middle of his company.
