Reiterates what is commonly seen in startups- It is easy to drum up hype around a good idea, but delivering on it requires different mettle.

Good case study. I too think there should be some negotiation. Something is better than nothing. One you get the bill passed. You have all the time to improve it. There is no rule that one the bill is passed it cannot be changed.

I agree that the bill would be weak but could have done some change in our corrupt system. Changes like this are not implemented in a day or weeks. It takes years of efforts to implement such bill. It is human physiology to resist change.

You have drawn a parallel to Anna's movement from a start-up phase but have not stressed on the important aspect of media support.  No start-up gets this kind of huge boost on a 24x7 basis for a long period of time.  It called this movement undeservedly as the Second war of independence.
I had written a few posts on the Anna rise and as you can see here it has not been a smooth ride for them but the media gave the impression that it was all milk and honey.

Rodinhood is inspired from Rodin - who sculpted 'The Thinker' and Robin Hood who 'got things done'. Hence Thinking+Doing = Rodinhood.
