Continuing the discussion of the Muse review posted by @thanos2001(thanks for that!) WHAT THE WHAT! PRODUCTION UNIT! :squee: - #128 by thanos2001 , I wanted to ensure it’s visibility rather than it being buried 130 posts deep where it might be missed.
Dang, I feel for those customers, after dropping 5k I’m sure they expected more. For my expense and experience with the PRU, they got much less for more money.
Dan has always been quick to praise a competitor rather than bad-mouth them publicly. An admirable display of business ethics. FSL should take notes.
By emulating the innovations of glowforge, and comparing the Muse to it they (inadvertently) effectively establish glowforge as the standard to aspire to. (Whoops)
It is beneath you to shout it out, but revel in it privately Dan, you earned it.
Consider how much easier for an established laser manufacturer to modify than for a new company to come out of the hole. The Muse falling somewhat short is a reflection of the difficulty of implementing the innovations glowforge brings.
Their success is a tribute to the founders, their vision, and the team they assembled to make it happen. By refusing to compromise on their ideal to deliver the best they can, they distance themselves into a comfortable first place.
Stark difference between company focus and ethics. @dan stood up and took a beating for missing predicted ship dates twice rather that ship something that fell short. He did that for us, his customers. It hurt him but helped us. That my friends is leadership
I am proud to have been an early backer and the employees of glowforge should be proud of the company they work for. I would be.
Signed, your friendly neighborhood cheerleader.
