For four years they said I was stupid…

Watching techcrunch’s video summary of Seedcamp, a conference for internet start-ups, there’s a great quote from a Hjalmar Winbladh of Rebtel that sums up the frustrations faced by innovators through the ages:

“When I tried to sell this idea, for the first four years, they said I was stupid. Then there was a very brief flash when they said I was a genius. Then everyone said it was obvious.”
