“I believe you have to be willing to be misunderstood if you’re going to innovate.”
“Even well-meaning gatekeepers slow innovation. When a platform is self service, even the improbable ideas can get tried because there’s no expert gatekeeper ready to say ‘that will never work!’”
User engagement down, as people defect to messaging apps. Is there some reason that Twitter hasn’t made its direct messaging function into a messaging app? And please add group messaging, too. Why is Twitter so slow at innovating?
Introducing Rip Cord
Rip Cord is a simple improvement upon the classic roll of packaging tape. This tape has a small string running down the center of the tape. The user pulls the string to separate the tape in half. This makes opening boxes a cinch, as there is no longer a need for scissors, knives, or keys. The packaging tape dispenser has a sharp edge with which to cut the tape, this edge is shaped such that the tape is cut to provide a tab at the center. This tape makes it easy for users to locate and lift the string.
I love seeing innovations that will — in a small way — make the world better for everyone, like rip cord.
