Startups Vs Big Internet Companies and the mass theory

Lessons learnt We’ve just closed down Recuperon, an Internet project I’ve been working on for some months, and when I look backwards and ask myself what is the most fascinating thing I’ve learnt, this is the answer: “On the Internet the mass of a company looks irrelevant, there must be other rules that determine how fast the organisation can move.” That explains why Eric Ries doesn’t mention the size of the “institution” when he defines a startup, something that I actually wondered many times.
