Paul Graham on Kiko's Demise

Paul Graham talks about Kiko's demise.
Justin wrote that one of the lessons he learned from Kiko was not to get distracted by side projects. It's true they burned up a lot of time working on other ideas. Perhaps if they hadn't, they'd have been so far ahead by the time Google Calendar launched that everyone would have used Kiko instead. Perhaps, but I doubt it. The killer, unforseen by the Kikos and by us, was Google Calendar's integration with Gmail. The Kikos can't very well write their own Gmail to compete.
