Storm Ventures’ Anshu Sharma says Dropbox’s recent moves perfectly illustrate what he calls the “Stack Fallacy.”
In plain English, there are many “stacks” of technology that sit between the foundational server and the end customer. So the server would be one stack, the network would be one, the database and app would each be one, and so forth.
Sharma says that a lot of companies often overvalue their level of knowledge in their core business stack, and underestimate what it takes to build the technology that sits one stack above them.
