Meaning of “Open”

The meaning of open
Keyword: Rashomon effect

To understand our position in more detail, it helps to start with the assertion that open systems win. This is counter-intuitive to the traditionally trained MBA who is taught to generate a sustainable competitive advantage by creating a closed system, making it popular, then milking it through the product life cycle. The conventional wisdom goes that companies should lock in customers to lock out competitors. There are different tactical approaches — razor companies make the razor cheap and the blades expensive, while the old IBM made the mainframes expensive and the software … expensive too. Either way, a well-managed closed system can deliver plenty of profits. They can also deliver well-designed products in the short run — the iPod and iPhone being the obvious examples — but eventually innovation in a closed system tends towards being incremental at best (is a four blade razor really that much better than a three blade one?) because the whole point is to preserve the status quo. Complacency is the hallmark of any closed system. If you don’t have to work that hard to keep your customers, you won’t.

Visit to Orlando – Disneyworld

Shared photos

Our maiden visit to Orlando. Ganesh had a lot of fun esp. since it was Christmas time and the spirit of Christmas was very much in the frosty air in Orlando 🙂 It was a long-awaited trip and we brought a ton of sweet, lovely and awe-inspiring memories back with us. “Shamu” – the killer whale show taught us to beleive in the power of ‘everything is possible’ and “Magic Kingdom” inspired us to dream big and push the boundaries of our imagination. The “bug” show was creepy and spooky but at the same time made us laugh to our heart’s content…The rides were cute and entertaining. Ganesh is fond of dinosaurs and he loved “Dino-land” the most. He’s now the proud owner of thenew addition to his toy kingdom – “Shamu – the killer whale”. The fireworks in Sea-world and Magic Kingdom was simply mind-numbing. Overall, it was worth the drive and we sincerely hope that every kid gets a chance to visit this lovely fantasy land.
