Silicon Valley's attack of the clones
Jun 29, 2013 7:04 AM - I've always believed that in tech, ideas matter less than execution. Apple didn't invent the tablet, Google didn't invent the search engine, and Facebook didn't invent the social network. They all just did those things better than others. And if Instagram can do short, viral videos better than Vine -- because it has a bigger audience already, or because it offers slight improvements like effects filters and image stabilization -- then being second shouldn't stop it. On the other hand: Sad day for Silicon Valley.
