“…startup failure happens all the time. Startups burst onto the scene (and particularly now, in such “frothy” times, they burst onto the scene with substantial investor backing). They stumble. They pivot. They adapt. And often they fail and sometimes they die. They die silently with a few founders saying “well shit, that didn’t really work out. Lessons learned. Let’s move on.” Or they die with a “hey, let’s make things right. Let’s pay back our investors and then get jobs or something.” Or, sometimes I guess, they die spectacularly and publicly, with stories in Techcrunch and a litany of nasty posts left on various forums around the Web. It happens. It happens now, and it’s happened in the past. The fact that we don’t actually know much about our history — as entrepreneurs or as educators — is part of the very unfortunate (ed-)tech amnesia we all suffer from. Perhaps that’s a big lesson to be drawn here.”
