Thank you Tim for making me think about unicorns in a different way. I used to love unicorns and then the VCs monetized them — partly why we made this year’s Business of Software Conference device a unicorn pricking a bubble. Those horns are sharper than you think http://imgur.com/v5qLMUS.
Beautifully put. The unicorn meme is a McGuffin if it’s about valuations.
Most unicorns are paper unicorns — more pointless than paper tigers. This is a definition I can celebrate.
