"I don't think that was the takeaway I was going for. An accountant, told "Tell me where the money goes in a taco truck", would be able to do do a napkin sketch of that in under a minute. "Describe at least one business problem amenable to a software solution that a taco truck has" does not strike me as being terribly difficult. (Actually selling it to them in a scalable fashion? Much more difficult, but that's largely because they're a taco truck.)"
What did Patrick mean in this paragraph? If you were to ask me "come up with a software solution for at least one business problem that a taco truck might have", I couldn't give you an answer. How could someone look at a business, and just dream up some software solutions?
