It couldn’t last… there are now several viable rapid-development concepts in play. The concept of building a company in a compressed timeframe wasn’t new when Andrew Hyde introduced it as Startup Weekend and it wasn’t the only game in town (as we proved in November 2007). Along comes an announcement about a “brand new product in 72 hours” by a group/organization known as kluster. This is an interesting “crowd sourcing” concept and business model… might be worth considering some of the metrics for accounting for participation in the development process as a method for tracking sweat equity.
