"Chrome: why creating products for a new paltform can superharge thir service"
Alertfox: website monitoring startup
Monitoring in real browsers (ie and firefox): AlterFox
- release early & often: worked
- start with basic use-cases
- non-scaleable system saved lots of time (version 2 will be scalable) and helped prioritize
- free accounts were gone soon, less than 10% used it (you can be generous with free versions)
- Purchasebutton from day one, got frst customers on day 1
- paying customers give better feedback than free ones
- extensions open new marketing channels,
-go to a new platform (Crome?)
- With firefox those who hae been there longest make up 50% of the top 100...
- Chrome as a far trickier design than Firefox as far as extensions go, extrensions are not trasferrable
- Few Plugins generate a lot of attenion + first mover advatage is hring BTw ;)

Copy, adapt or innovate?

Case: Vente Privee (2001)
Many copycats came up in F and E and later in D (buyVIP, Brands for Friends (2007)), limango (both putting stress on different segments or tactics) - bought limango.

What makes an idea successful?
What are the sources of ideas?
Genius? (rarely)
Transfer? (analogy)
Transport (geographicaly, adapt)
Transcode (new twist) (experteer, applicats pay to see the classifieds)
"transprove" (blue ocean strategy), rethink features, improve it for target customer
overtake, copy execute

after idea: screen (market, potential, competition, financials, etc)

select: explicit vs implicit factors (self estimatio, risk aversion, society/standing), assign weights

execution: soft (planning), hard (do)
copy: main risk is competition: low poetantia
adapt: main risk is execution (as first mover), medium potential
innovate, main risk: market, potential: high

Investors disklike risk but like potential.
Founders need to know what steps they are talented in.

Now 3 Mon startup presentations:

Jörg Blumtritt presents:, food for friends
Benedikt Köhler and Michael Reuter an in it, it's about tasking something and has been hacked togehther by the three.
get rid of the middleman, it's local, ppl identify by the way they eat and cook, enablelocal cultures.
(I think that Jörg called it a hobby I guess doe not help...)
producers have to register and are hand picked. (I am stillnot sure I understand what it does.

It's a shop system and there is a catalogue, so it is a joined shop, shop cares for payment, ppl care for delivering, they will earn €€ from provisions.

jens & dirk
Communardo is a software vendor for team collaboration: communote is enterprise microblogging, twitter in the company.
(They do it as a dialoge that takes out some speed...)
(I was interrupted, they say it is better than e-mail and gaines some momentum in the end:))
-> jammer? communote is more topic oriented than ppl oriented (as yammer is)
- difference from google wave is that it works, wave is not ready for enterprise use yet
- 5 businesses use it productively, 100+ use it in testing mode
- free for 10 users.
- microblogging /signalling will be art of every bsuiness communication app
- blue kiwi in race does similar stuff
