I've been a long reader of Tim Ferriss and follower of the startup world.
Reid Hoffman has his quote:
"If you are not embarassed by your first product, you launched too late."
Due to the whole MED (minimum effective dose) and MVP way of thinking, I can't help but think that there are a lot of ppl (including myself) who take this as permission to do up to what is acceptable (like a 40%) instead of going for excellence (>80%)
What do you think? What is the best way to go about creating the essential stuff and testing it without cutting corners?
