I don't know enough about Facebook or Twitter to know how much market research
(if any) they did to determine if their business model was market-viable, I was
thinking about a company I used to work with that regularly held project
kick-off meetings at which developers' justification for launching something new
was "we'll be the first," and "nobody else is doing this," without anybody ever
discussing how much it would cost to develop, how many could be sold and whether
the reason "nobody was doing this" was that there was no market for it.
