Instagram : follow your dreams, CANCELLED

Good and realistic viewpoint by Fred Destin on startups and the reality of monetization in the wake of Instagram’s TOS mess. Money quote:

“In the world of innovation I love that we champion ‘disruptive entrepreneurs’ who want to ‘change the world’.  We’re so far out there in assuming there is something inherently ethical or moral about beating the incumbents, putting the user first, building ‘awesome’ product.  But you know what : there is nothing inherently moral or ethical about tech or startups.  There are only choices you make.”
