Loved this little gem of a quote hidden inside the following article
“Product management is the art of knowing what to build”
Feels like one of those “Everybody knows that” things from the Geico commercials, but from experience, fewer people than you’d imagine know this.
Stack fallacy has caused many companies to attempt to capture new markets and fail spectacularly. When you see a database company thinking apps are easy, or a VM company thinking big data is easy? – they are suffering from stack fallacy. Stack fallacy is the mistaken belief that it is trivial to build the layer above yours.
