It’s funny how the “Next Big Thing” always seems to have been there all along. It’s not like somebody came up with some brand new idea… there’s no such thing. You’ve just got to execute the right way.
I mean, look Instagram and Vine. You could’ve done essentially the same things with Facebook, but they made it better. They simplified certain things, added other things, and boom! You’ve got a hot social network.
The point here isn’t that anybody can make the NBT. I don’t believe that everybody is cut out to do that. Anybody can come up with the idea, but only a select few can execute correctly. Next Big Things are just incrementally adding to the Last Big Things. Somebody just decided to execute differently.
