(Forbes)   The secret to efficient "dream teams" in business is that you only need three people: The Hipster to make the product cool, The Hacker to make the product by any means necessary, and The Hustler to sell it to you and me   (forbes.com) divider line 21

Actually, in this case, the "hipster" can't be like what we usually refer to as hipsters because they can't be too cool for school. They just have to be cool enough to have a lot of friends.

/older brother worked on a startup that only had hackers and a hustler
//they could have used a hipster

Wow, Forbes has really gone to shiat.

How bout the Lawyer for when your Hacker gets you in trouble for patent/copyright infringement. How about the Rich Kid who will fund your startup?. How about the Idiotic Journalist who has to pick the Hipster's pubic hairs out of his teeth? How bout the Web Designer who can deliver beautiful webpages, with actual content buried far beyond the "3-click" rule? What about the Adverting Asshead who actually provides the revenue.

If Mr. Ianmoto honestly believes that a good business is 2/3rds marketing (hipster and hustler) and only 1/3rds actual production, there is no limit to what he can't do. I bet he also thinks that Zynga has a great long-term strategy.

I present to you this as proof.

Hipsters do not create cool things, they destroy cool things, embrace complete shiat and behave much like locusts.

On cracked.com they parodied this in their videos called The Startup.

Kind of follows the classic triumvirate. Charismatic Leader or hipster (julius) Wealth and Influence or guy who sells it (Crassus) Reputation within field or maker of the product (Pompey)

Having a great product is of no value unless someone is able to hustle it. I speak from experience. Vendors expect a hard sell, they want the sizzle, not the steak. Offer something that is smaller, faster, cheaper and easier to use and they just yawn.

How about the wisdom to recognize the hipster and hacker when you see them?

Alliterative bullshiat can deceive everyone. Fark gets how it jives. Kings lick monkeys' nuts openly, pee quivers, rancid streams, throw up very wet Xeroxes -- youthful Zen.

They've been there for a while, similar to the WSJ. Most business writing is total garbage, really embarrassing stuff. Sad part is the broken clock analogy works so the idiots keep writing.
