Erik will talk about the problem of getting attached the idea behind a proposed product before validating what, if anything, about the product will bring you closer to realizing your vision.

In addition to talking about an example from The Lean Startup by Eric Ries, Erik will illustrate the problem through the lenses of Raphael's "The School of Athens" and Peter Sellers' Inspector Clouseau character.
