The other day I was thinking about a blog where people can post their blog just by dropping a mail to the blog. Sending SMS to a URL and it getting published could have also been implemented. Today I realized that someone has already implemented this idea (http://posterous.com/). So in this lightning-paced world in case you have any idea you have to execute it sooner than the speed of the light.
Millions of techies are reading the same stuff on the internet, facing the same sort of issues, and thinking probably on the same lines to resolve these roadblocks. So the one who will think fastest and execute\implement the fastest would get the benefit of the first entrant to the market. Of course, your product should be useful to the user but many a time just to make it perfect people take too much time and lose the first entrant opportunity.
Lesson: think fast, Implement faster.
