... again, why? This is the thing I'm asking questions about, and what you
have not answered. Competition has done wonderful things for us. As has our
collaboration. It's a new kind of answer -- we don't need to be strangled by
the patterns and expectations of the past.
Thilo: Tell me why (costly) collaboration on marketing issues is going to be
of more benefit than (cheaper) focus on our own awesomeness. I'm not keen to
read another essay answering a totally different question, though. :-)
