If we roll back and play time again, would we likely have the same outcome? Would "Google" be today's "Google"? Would "Netflix" be today's "Netflix"?
The answer is highly unlikely the the same things would succeed at the same order of magnitude. This is exactly what happens to my last business idea, I posted the same app on ProductHunt but using two different names. The first time, I called it "LongLiveSS" got 67 upvotes then two weeks later I posted exactly the same app but named as "UrusParadox" got 2 upvotes
The Bachman experiment is very inspiring, trying to find an answer to the "talent versus luck" question Stephen King decided to publish a book under a pseudonym. The book Thinner (1984) sold 28,000 copies during its initial run—and then 10x as many when it was revealed that Bachman was, in fact, King.
