You know who they are. They fight for change. They work on big distruptive ideas. They spend every day fighting for a better life, education, healthcare, and more love - less war. They are hackers. They are the Occupy movemement. They are freedom fighters all over the world. They are sometimes... entrepreneurs.
You love them because they stand for change. They know something is wrong and they will change it. They are willing to step out from the crowd and take a stand. They take risk. They don't always know what to do, but they do something. They don't give up. They stick their heads out - heads that would roll 600 years ago. They are the true heroes. The pirates.
There is so much talent in tech. So much talent in Sillicon Valley. I wonder why so few of the entrepreneurs work on problems that really matter. So few go for the big distruptive ideas. So few dare to take on the big problems. Why is that? Are they afraid? Are they trained to believe that money matters? That being acquired matters? That the world cares about the Techcrunch article?
You will die in the end and no one will care. Unless you change the world. To change the world, you have to become one of them. You have to become a pirate.
You know what you have to do.
