Problems of Projects

1) Underestimating The Cold Start Problem

If you build and release web site and nobody uses it, you have the cold start problem.

2) Focusing on Too Many Things

If you can't describe what your site does with a single, clear idea then you're trying to do too much.

3) Lack of Sustained Execution

What makes Google so terrifying to their competitors is that they never stop getting better. They're executing each and every day to make their software the best it can be.

4) Pointing the Finger when Missteps Happen

DVD code & Digg :- their apology letter and reversal suggests they quickly realized that pointing the finger wasn't the right course. Only by accepting responsibility for their user base could Digg keep their respect.
