The Right Thing

If I say “iOS users overwhelmingly use the Safari browser, here’s the stats”, you’d say “okay, that’s interesting, what can I learn from that, and what opportunity does it represent to the industry?” But if I say “minorities in the tech industry overwhelmingly have this experience, here’s their examples”, you don’t say “Okay, what can I learn and what’s the opportunity?” you start by saying “that’s not true!”

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest.
