R Catalogue of the exhibition, Johannesburg Art Gallery, The thirty-two artists who participated were tasked with creating, in a single day, an 8-page comic based on the work of Petrus Nooi, a sculptor who works in concrete and sells his pieces from his yard next to the road that connects Stellenbosch with the informal settlement of Khayelitsha.

You need three things to create a successful startup: Most startups that fail do it because they fail at one of these. A startup that does all three will probably succeed. And since a startup that succeeds ordinarily makes its founders rich, that implies getting rich is doable too.
There is no magically difficult step that requires brilliance to solve. The way a startup makes money is to offer people better technology than they have now. They had three new ideas: Above all, they were determined to make a site that was good to use.

That shows how much a mere idea is worth. The market price is less than the inconvenience of signing an NDA. Another sign of how little the initial idea is worth is the number of startups that change their plan en route. Their value is mainly as starting points: What matters is not ideas, but the people who have them.
