When posting this I managed to create a state where the title was displayed as "A startup's best friend? FailureA startup's best friend? Failure" but if I clicked on edit in the form it was only "A startup's best friend? Failure". I am not sure how to reproduce.

Here's why that defect occurred, FTA:

"Where old-economy giants once boasted of running 'zero-defects' operations, today's successful Internet businesses embrace defects as a way to get things right."

pg knows _exactly_ what he's doing ;)

It's not a bug, it's a feature! :)

I dont know. It's ok for a turnaround company, or a dispassionate outsider. Not for someone who is in the grind. see my thread http://news.ycombinator.com/comments?id=1464
