Is it possible today to create a startup and change the world?

Hi abrowser. Want to know your opinion on the creation of new start-UPS today, in 2013. Do you think it possible today to repeat the success of twitter, google, Facebook and other successful companies by inventing something new and useful to people (as the saying goes that changed the world)?

I'm looking at today's "start-UPS" and it seems to me that most of their founders conceived them just to. No I have nothing bad to say about them do not want all people that will stay and makes certainly great. But to be honest many of them themselves come up with the problem and trying to solve it and similar start-UPS appears every day lot.

I have the feeling that everything was already invented and no new revolutionary developments now expect only from large corporations that invest in other industries such as google

Do you think it possible today simple programmer to do a startup and change the world?

You can!!! Unrealized ideas — shaft!!! Hands do not have time to hit the keyboard... For example read the ideas of the fathers of the genre. Who stood at the origin (at least take our programmers 80s) were Smoking right the grass(it was held in high esteem) and generated a bunch of ideas useful and powerful, but computers then they are not allowed. Sometimes I read the programmers ' academic magazines of those times and greatly surprised by the breadth of thought... the Problem is that one long and robust, the gang is difficult to collect. Plus usually all the good ideas usually at the junction either with electronics, or with biology or with bizayn, or even with something you have to be a multi spices or opyatzhe to gather a gang, the Gang in additionbut difficult to feed at the stage of promotion, have to keep everyone on the rice (in terms of panania) and promises, in terms of morale.

But let's not unfounded, I will give examples. Make normal raspoznavanii speech and you will change the world. Make neurointerface normal and again will change. Smart home as such, and no one did (only the appearance). Automate everything — people like...

Start small, such as architecture design new home PC, and if it is steep, it will change.

Always look to the future, LCD last century, will only projectors, game design immediately under the system of virtual reality...

And everything will be great!!!

in the early 20th century was also widely believed that physics has already discovered all that is possible, and open nothing more

Facebook was created when there was already a forums and even social networks, such as MySpace.
Google was created when there was already a search engines, such as Yahoo.
Need more examples?
not to mention Twitter, which is basically a stripped down social network. - Dina_Wyman12 commented on October 3rd 19 at 03:49

Did I step on anybody's toes? Would you mind to explain your negative? - Dina_Wyman12 commented on October 3rd 19 at 03:51
not there - Gerard22 commented on October 3rd 19 at 03:54
First, ask to explain the negative is gone.
Second, what makes you think that I put to you a minus? - Dina_Wyman12 commented on October 3rd 19 at 03:57
What's wrong with the question on the downside, if people did not argues? So you can even beat off all desire to ask questions. - Lula commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:00

I also have the right grass... Make the car normal on the basis of mini PC with solid state hard drive...
Make software thought out metacomputer(media center)(20 terabytes) )and promote it... Normal range for water cooling and that in our country do not sell...
Door lock microcontroller design finally, that cell phone instead of a key was...

One can make a prototype. To change the world need a team, investment, and the list goes on.

Unrealized ideas of the sea. For example, the distributed news system (similar out bitmessage). Below news published not uncle Sam, and anyone. It was impossible to block. To user ratings.

Personally, I'm tired of the news of the purchase and concealment of facts. Perhaps this startup is really going to change the world, if not to strangle on the vine.

I agree that we can, because our lives even as many areas are not optimized, not serviced, not superior to us lazy people to live more convenient — that it's just nepahannoe field. Especially considering that the computer age a hundred years is not knocked, the Internet era and fifty. We are in the very beginning — do not want.

The chance is very small (<1%), based on statistics.
Chances to achieve is never enough.
Investors were denied the high-flying now projects.
Dead projects, clones of which are now in bloom and smell.
Anything can happen. - Dina_Wyman12 commented on October 3rd 19 at 03:59

You question such a side bet that obvious desire to justify himself, to calm down and go to sleep, type "not well"

The simple programmer is unlikely. You need something else.
Team? - Dina_Wyman12 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:03
and something else... (good grass) - Gerard22 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:06

By the way here is an example of a normal approach to generating ideas (such as brainstorming):

Why not. Study the needs of people and business you might find a problem that when the solution benefits and profits.

Great question, even in 2013) and how much of this time, successful startups changed the world for the better shot, no statistics were not led?)
I like the first thing that comes to mind is the additional reality and Pocemon Go)))

Almost all big companies started from garages... what does this mean? It says that was the idea, but not always. Take for example the inhabitants of Odessa who created Looksary, here is an example of one of the most successful startups on the permanent Council. Most importantly a clear goal, a dream, I would say a crazy dream. And the team of course. About facebook, twitter, google in this area among startups the competition is great. What if to create start-UPS in undeveloped niches, medicine for example or something else?
