Venture capitalist Mike Maples Jr. talks about how businesses seeking to exploit network effects must deeply understand the network itself, its nodes and the role of the operator. He points to railroads, record companies and TV stations as historical examples of network-effects businesses and urges present-day founders to have an ongoing hypothesis of their network that evolves over time.
