People who want to be big sometimes think they have to immediately reach the largest possible audience — but the best way to produce things that take off is to produce small things. To become a small expert. To become the best person on the Internet at understanding the application of Medicaid to minority children, or something like that.
If you go to Tokyo, you'll see there are all sorts of really strange shops. There'll be a shop for 1970's vinyl, 1980's whisky, and so on. That doesn't make any sense if it's a shop in a Des Moines suburb. In a Des Moines suburb, to exist, you have to be Subway; you have to hit the mass-market immediately.
But in Tokyo, where there's 30-40 million people within a train ride of a city, then your market is 40 million. And within that 40 million there's definitely a couple thousand people who love 1970's music and 1980's whisky.
The Internet is Tokyo. The Internet allows you to be niche at scale.

This was intended as advice for people interested in writing articles and books, but it applies to anything you want to build on the Internet. It's similar to the startup way of starting with and dominating a niche market

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
