作者Steve Yegge是google的工程师,著名博主。这篇原本只是要在google内部分享的博文,强烈批评了google短视的一面,尤其是没有像Amazon、facebook那样将产品做成平台,开放api。举了Google+为例,上线的时候根本没有提供api--连给内部员工用的api都没有。 他这篇文章发在Google+上,本意是只想让Google内部员工看到,但他忘了关掉public了。。。于是就流传了出来。 大家都在学steve jobs,预测用户喜欢什么,做那种用户想不到的最后又想用的产品。 "The problem is that we are trying to predict what people want and deliver it for them... You can't do that. Not really. Not reliably. There have been precious few people in the world, over the entire history of computing, who have been able to do it reliably. Steve Jobs was one of them. We don't have a Steve Jobs here. I'm sorry, but we don't." 顺便提一句,他的js2-mode在emacs圈内广泛被使用,我可能就是几年前找emacs javascript mode的时候,进入他博客的。
