I love the liberation!

Twitter is a fascinating case study of the opportunities that still exist in the niches between existing applications/services/models out there. I've said before, Twitter fills a (very small) gap between IM and email. The O'Reilly Radar says something similar.

I distinctly remember people telling us our company idea was a lost cause because SAP was already doing something like that.. There was still plenty of room to distinguish ourselves from SAP.

Entrepreneurs should not be discouraged because "something similar already exists." If that was true, there would be no Microsoft, no Google, no Apple, no Facebook, etc. For your potential customers, filling a gap means complete liberation.
