Is "Fast" the New "Right?"

Great post on this subject over at Acronym that includes terrific comments.

I'm conflicted a bit though. My experiences in working for start ups who's typical goal was to be first to market in any situation (each time that strategy backfired. We were either not first, or not ready with a workable product or service). One of my favorite sayings used to be "The problem with being a pioneer is that you end up with arrows in your back." (not sure who to quote on that).

If "Fast" is the new right, then it has to have at least one caveat.

How about this:

"Fast is the new right if you willing to fail miserably and try again."

Assuming the failure part is OK, then I agree completely.

Check out the comments as well (I added my own) as they are pretty insightful.
