For a long time now, I've applied the "release early, release often" principle, only to have someone else "release later, release better."
- I made Disemployed. Someone else made Indeed.
- I made RSS Filter. Someone else made Feed Rinse.
- I made Microformats Base. Someone else made Microformats Search.
- I made interesting software. Someone else made money and recognition.
Well I've finally learned my lesson and I'm done releasing early and often. From now on, I'm releasing later and better.
