Life After Failure
from the it's-not-so-bad dept
A look at what has happened to Boo.com and many of the people associated with it, suggesting that failing isn’t much of a problem, these days. Most of the people who were involved with Boo have been snapped up greedily by other companies looking for good workers. So, instead of being stigmatized with being associated with a dismal failure, many are thought to be smart risk-takers. I’m not so sure this is a good thing. Certainly there were elements of Boo.com that were not thought out clearly. How to separate the good people from the bad would be very difficult.
