Zero-to-One: Post #2--The Future
The Future. “What important truth do very few people agree with you on?” This is the question Thiel asks entrepreneurs. He’s looking for disrupters—contrarians (not miscreants) who don’t follow the crowd. His best answer(s): “Most people believe in X, but the truth is the opposite of X.” Progress can be incremental and horizontal—copying what others do—or transformative and vertical—doing very new things that create the future. And technology can lead us to transformational change.
