We’re trying to underdo the competition…

…No one can really beat us on the low end. It’s just what you need, and nothing you don’t. You’re always going to have more people on the low end who just need a few things.

I love that Jason Fried quote, he’s proving out the worse if better argument.

One benefit he didn’t cite was disintermediating IT departments. I’ve seen this happen: IT departments spend months deciding whether to offer a service, evaluating packages, and designing a scalable offering. Meanwhile, individuals and teams simply sign up for a web-based service and get their jobs done.
