    To be honest and really blunt, I never really enjoyed Daniel's attitude in the way he writes. It always come out as a... elitist? Extremely happy that he "grew" so quickly and ended up in a famous/good company, but personally I like to see people being more modest about their achievements and opinions, so that pretty much breaks the whole post right here and there, having an elitist communication about design elitism?

    Anyway.. If the last couple of years in and watching tech/startups taught me something, is that there's never a stupid business idea. You'll never know what is the next big random #wtfisthis thing, and you'll only find out when people gather around it and start spreading like disease, so focus on trying out quickly ideas and failing fast, and see what might be of interest to the market. It works out just as a brainstorm, don't say "this is stupid", because that right there hinders all innovation.

    So,Yo. Stupid? Probably, yes. Useless? I guess so.. Does it have potential? Shitloads of it, as it went viral like nuts. Now that they gathered the user base and money, they can probably transform it into a proper business and service.
