Although there are many different tools out there, sometimes I just want to fire something up and start working on it. Speed, as in how quickly you can start working on something without having to tinker around with different tools and components is a huge plus. Use case scenario = design meetings, brainstorming sessions, client meetings etc. Plus the right click palette and the UI is very useful.

Assigning different colors for users working on the same canvas will be helpful to track who is working on what.

Considering this is an initial release, it is pretty amazing.

What happens when you have multiple lily's up at the same time? Is there any collision prevention?

Marketing gimmick sometimes frustrates the hell out of me.

1. (No app required) - but the person hosting the photos need to install the app?

2. (Download on the Apple Store icon)- Yet clicking on it will give you a coming soon page. Will it kill you to put a "Coming Soon" text below the icon ?

Of course, I am still trying to wrap my head around the use case for this concept, especially when you have a dozen other ways to solve this problem. Oh wait, what was the problem again?

Particularly on the topic of having children, buying cars or homes, being loyal to a company or the concept of risk taking, the current 30 - 40 year old would have a complete different mindset than the 30 - 40 year old from 10 - 20 years ago.

I'd be interested to know the number or ratio of startup created by under 30 and have failed vs number of startups created by over 30 and failed. My guess is there'd be less failure by over 30 founders.

Here's some interesting data: http://blogs.hbr.org/2014/04/how-old-are-silicon-valleys-top...

Data/results from it would be near useless unless you were able to question only people with zero-responsibility (ie no family, commitments) and equal risk.

Not necessarily - depends on your goal in such a study. If you were looking to see the impact of age and age alone, sure that'd be tough to control for with all the added factors. However, startups don't occur in a vacuum and I think it'd be interesting to see some comparisons without worrying about age as the only factor.

Most research points to mid/late 30's as the peak of technological breakthroughs (largely determined by age of Nobel winning work). I'd actually be somewhat surprised if successful company founders weren't largely distributed around that same range.

-----


You'd probably want to fix an n, and only compare the nth attempted startup for each person.

-----


Only if you're interested in age as a strictly biological factor. Most of these discussions focus on age as a proxy for experience, in which case a larger n is entirely the point.

-----


If you're looking for experience, then just look at experience (e.g. number of startup attempts).

Interesting bit here: There were 20 Freescale Semiconductor engineers on that MH 370 plane. Story is getting interesting by the day.
