“make something good and see what happens”

In an interview with Edge Magazine, Panic co-founder Cabel Sasser revealed Mark Zuckerberg was interested in buying his company (I’m not sure how long ago).

Cabel passed (via Engadget):

“Maybe that’s why we’re put on this planet: to be an example of like, you can move slowly. Make sure you have enough money in the bank, make something good and see what happens. You don’t have to go for world domination.”

The world would be a better place with more Sassers and less Zuckerbergs in it.




Playdate crank

Imagine trying to pitch a handheld gaming device with a crank to one of the big gaming companies. Oh, and the screen is black and white. It would get shot down immediately.

But the reality is – based on the reactions I see on Twitter – Panic will have no problem selling this. It does, of course, have to live up to the marketing.

I’ve been a Panic customer for over 10 years. Creating a handheld gaming device is quite a pivot. I love it.
