Interesting insight in this short (less than a minute) snippet of Tom Conrad’s talk for Stanford’s Entrepreneurship Corner. He looks for the bigger, more humbling number to keep his team sharp. Specifically, Pandora may be the giant of Internet radio but it’s a very small piece of total radio. Nice approach.

Tom Conrad, the speaker, is CTO of Pandora, and also has history with Apple Computer, Documentum, and Pets.com. The same site has a full one-hour talk he gave last month. My second favorite snippet there is success is not about you. It’s very refreshing.
