这是对 Paul Graham 的那篇  How to get startup ideas 的扩展。Paul Graham 的主要观点有点无招胜有招的意思:
The way to get startup ideas is not to try to think of startup ideas. It’s to look for problems, preferably problems you have yourself.
而今天分享的这篇文章的观点是,好的创业 idea 应该是去找这些情况:
... situations we encounter in life that are completely and totally backwards because of some concession to reality that makes no sense.
著名例子:Dropbox 创始人 Drew Houston 在他的 YC 申请表中说:
The ridiculous things people name their documents to do versioning, like ‘proposal v2 good revised NEW 11-15-06.doc’ continue to crack me up.
回头看,很显然地,Dropbox 对文件的版本控制比上面这种通过文件名版本控制的做法高明。
