In October 2015 I had found the following quotation:
»If you're not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you've launched too late«
Reid Hoffman, Co-Founder of LinkedIn

Used plastic bottles that were collected everywhere were covered with self-printed, monochrome labels from the inkjet printer and sold in very small quantities. With increasing sales figures, however, the drive was also there to gradually improve and professionalize the products.
