It’s a great time to be an entrepreneur

2005-06-29T22:48:15-07:00

There’s never been a better time to be an entrepreneur because it’s never been cheaper to be one. Here’s one example. Excite.com took $3,000,000 to get from idea to launch. JotSpot took $100,000. Why on earth is there a 30X...



Personal - Joining the EFF Board

2005-06-23T09:56:13-07:00

Well, normally this isn't a forum for personal announcements, but I thought this one worth making an exception for. I've joined the board of the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF). For those of you not familiar with the EFF, they are...



Engineer Interview Triage?

2005-06-21T15:49:29-07:00

A while ago (actually, any post I've done is now "a while ago...") I wrote about Sabermetrics for Startups. I wondered if there was data you could collect in an interview process that would allow you to more accurately determine...



Keeping Innovation Alive - The Hackathon

2005-05-09T14:41:45-07:00

It's May 9th... Must be time for my freakin' every-two-months blog post :-) Startups have many disadvantages over established companies -- they have fewer people, they have fewer customers and they have a whole lot less money. They are supposed...



The long tail of software. Millions of Markets of Dozens.

2005-03-09T23:31:26-08:00

Hello blogging, my old friend… You know you’ve been constipated in getting a post out the door when you start it with three caveats: This post is WAY long. For that I’m sorry. Some things just take a while to...



Startups and the Stockdale Paradox

2005-01-06T00:16:28-08:00

Why on earth can I only seem to post about once every two months? Note to self: startup, new family and blog posts don’t mix well. Sheesh. It is possible that I'm the last person to read Good To Great....



Flossing and startups

2004-11-14T22:20:38-08:00

I went to the dentist recently. I'm always slightly embarrased at the dentist. It's as if I'm 11 years old all over again where I know I did something wrong and I'm just waiting to be caught. I sat in...



Potting Plants

2004-10-20T20:47:27-07:00

I was trying to recruit someone recently for my new company. Despite hours of pushing by me and the team, they ultimately concluded that they needed to take time off before deciding what to do next. There was a time,...



Moons Over My Hammy

2004-10-13T21:39:36-07:00

I've been absent for a while. Sorry. My new company just launched and it took all my time away. Now, like Chucky in Child's Play 2, I'm back... When Vinod Khosla stepped up to the plate to fund Excite (born...



Potty Talk

2004-09-29T20:38:12-07:00

Warning: this post contains no educational material whatsoever. It's merely me, at the office late working on the new company and feeling punchy, telling a story about meeting Bill Gates at a urinal. Microsoft made a buyout offer for Excite...
