The views of a marketing deviant.

Hi John, Love your blog, but I'm not so sure that "Removing bad stuff is relatively simple." If so, how come there's so much of it about? Toothpaste. Back. Into. Tube. Matt
Because people focus on making new stuff and don't see the value in removing the bad stuff (aka perfecting the existing stuff).
There's a buddhist proverb that goes along the lines of 'to make an apple pie from scratch, you'd have to invent the entire universe'.One of my favourite bees in my bonnet about the ad industry is the obsession over novelty rather than 'better'.Which is kinda what you are getting at, yes?
Partly Eaon. It's also about the ease with which you can improve what already exists - if you focus on that.
