How Startups Evolve

NYTimes writes about Silicon Valley companies have “renewed” themselves as the It environment has changed around them. The article describes the experiences of four companies: Tellme, InterTrust, VMware and Scalix. “Companies across Silicon Valley tell similar stories. The marketing plan, business model and sometimes the company itself die, but good technology tends to live on. Think of it as the business-and-technology equivalent of the ‘selfish gene,’ a term coined by the evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins, who argues that the gene rather than the larger organism is the fundamental unit of survival.”
