Lab Notebook: an illustration to Machines 1 & 2 concepts

Two Silicon Valley companies merge, citing the need to build computing capabilities (Machine 1 is a bottleneck for Machine 2):

Rosati [the CEO of the merged company] added, “If we are to become the workplace for the world, we need to make massive investments in technology, massive investments in data science, massive investments in predictable business outcomes. Fundamentally, we have a shot at building a business on the scale of Amazon or LinkedIn or iTunes.” (ref: Gannes, Liz. oDesk and Elance Merge to Create One Big Freelancer Company. All Things D, December 18, 2013.)

I can use this example in explaining Machines 1&2 in the Greatest Innovations of Silicon Valley course/book.
