Re: Keep tinkering
Definitely keep tinkering. I think what Pete meant by Stop Tinkering was to stop testing and perfecting and just release the damn thing. But the tinkering must go on. Till death we tinker.

Pan Am in science fiction
I didn't remember that Pan Am made it into Blade Runner, but it was also the featured airline of 2001: A Space Odyssey. Pan Am was gone by 1991 (not that commercial space travel arrived on schedule, either).

Bladerunner Analogy Holds True
Is Bladerunner really that old? No wonder Harrison Ford was such a zombie on the last Oscars telecast.

Seriously, I like this analogy (if a bit forced here and there) and think that companies have to avoid Replicant syndrome. Sometimes it feels like I'm reading the same social-network-customer-intelligence and Internet-of-things predictive maintenance big data use-case scenarios over and over again. The innovators coming up with truly unique applications are probably keeping quiet about what they've come up with, for fear they'll breed a fresh crop of corporate Replicants!

Keep tinkering
For #3, better title might be Keep Tinkering. Don't wait too long to release -- and then keep tinkering, a la Facebook, Twitter and Netflix. Right?

It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
