Re: Apple connectors?
@mhhfive interesting point, I would say it a never ending learning process as sometimes most strange point of view and research does make sense...

Re: Apple connectors?
@mhhf1ve agreed, and there is always value in provoking thought. There are a number of popular writers who draw on research lightly that serve the same purpose. Sometimes I even attend lectures and consider the real value not what I've heard there but what it makes me think of.  But the thing I told you about how one markets with these images has not been upended by a reinterpretation. I just got an email today that includes this, "It's fascinating to see so many smaller startups beating out larger companies - a real life David & Goliath." It's an irresistable archtype that captures our imagination in much the same way that Cinderella or Horatio Algers plots do.

Re: Apple connectors?
Oh. I don't usually take Gladwell that seriously. His 10,000 hours of study book turned me off him as a rigorous scholar. But he has unique views sometimes and comes up with his own kind of parables that are interesting and sometimes thought provoking.

Re: Apple connectors?
Gladwell was after a larger argument there, how weakness can become strength. (Actually, there is a biblical story about a left-handed assassin that makes that point just as a by the way in the narrative.) Gladwell's approach has been critiqued as not being rigorously tested and demonstrated. See https://archives.cjr.org/the_observatory/the_gladwellian_debate.php  Of course, much of that critique applies to other researchers who claim a roots in economics like Dan Ariely. I do enjoy Ariely's books (and have read some of Gladwell's work, too) but I always keep mroe than a grain of salt on hand because they draw their conclusions based on a very small sampling size. In Ariely's case, it is often because they have access to 30 or so university students to act as subject. But Gladwell also cites studies based on no more than 40 people. That doesn't mean what they say isn't true, only that it has not been subjected to really rigorous standards of testing.

Re: Apple connectors?
Well, even Malcolm Gladwell isn't changing the parable to make the Goliath into a hero -- but it's interesting that the underdog may not be as unflavored based on historical facts.

Re: Apple connectors?
@mhhf1ve you can take contrarian readings on tradition for Biblical stories.  I've seen and/or heard some of those. But poular perception being what it is, it won't sell well to declare "We're a Goliath going after David."

Re: Apple connectors?
Yes, that's the typical way David is portrayed, but I was just fascinated by the possibility that the widely known story had a different moral.

Re: Apple connectors?
@mhhf1ve I haven't dug into the archeological studies for that particular time period, though I am now on the BAR email list. I meant as an archetype of a regular person determined to best a giant warrior.
