Kevin Rose’s Photo Sharing App Tiiny is Shutting Down

I believe Kevin Rose says it best. Without failure there is never success.

Still, that North has decided to shut Tiiny down shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. Rose wrote when they launched the company that “our goal is to fail fast, to launch a new project every few months.”

Also he offers a few keen insights into the decision process of starting another project.

Choosing what’s next — a few key questions we ask ourselves

How big is the opportunity? No “lifestyle” businesses.

Is the idea original or an adaptation of an existing idea? If it’s an adaptation, is the idea at least a 10x improvement over the competition?

How well does the idea match the skill set and domain knowledge of our team?

How passionate are we about the idea?
