Adam Neary on Github

GitHub blows my mind because of their unswerving confidence and sense of self. Github hosts software repositories and makes it easier for people to collaborate on software development. Famously, they used their own product to build their product, and they've bootstrapped from the very beginning.

What's truly remarkable, though, is that they have the courage not to play games. They've released the majority of their code set and projects as open source that anyone can access. They are so confident in the quality of their product that they don't need to worry about the grifters.

This makes them the ultimate role model. Don't fight for artificial competitive barriers. Just make a product so amazing that no one can catch up.
