Try-everything competition among job boards?

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you know that competition is one of my obsessions... so, I couldn't pass up talking about Jason Calacanis' ideas on the future of the startup.

I really like two things Jason says - first he calls this the 'try everything' era and truly I believe in hyperactivity as a new requirement for success on the Internet. It is happening as we speak in the job board industry...

Second, he calls longevity a type of innovation - which is funny, as if it were so rare it could be considered something brand-new! In reality, patience and longevity have always been key tools of the trade for most entrepreneurs. But there was a period of time on the Internet when the get-rich-quick crowd seems to dominate. Competition has fixed that!
