From The Lean Event
As an added bonus The Lean Event had a table where you could write yourself some takeaway comments as a reminder. They then posted these 3 weeks later, as it turns out that was a good time after the conference to be reminded! Recent enough that you can remember what it means, but long enough back in your day job that you might need a nudge.
EDIT: Talking of features dressed up as products, after Phocuswright I became aware of an EU funded research project called EuTravel.This aims to a create multi-modal travel planning tool that seems just like Rome2Rio. After a further look at the project site I can see some science in there... however, mostly it appears to be subsidising competitors feature development. They could have worked with existing providers to collect data on usage and social change, if that's what they need, and I would've thought that this might be more cost effective. (As a bonus they could also have seen how different approaches of these partners changed things)
