How to foster data driven culture

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 23:46:33 +0000

Last week I was talking to a founder who recently launched a product. He expressed frustration on how he’s the only one on the team who cares about metrics. His team values data in general, but didn’t end up tracking any metrics for their recently launched product. I have been in this situation before and […]

About FourSquare

Mon, 04 May 2015 23:35:31 +0000

This post was initially posted on Medium as a response to Dennis Crowley’s interview with Steven Levy. I think it’s a great interview. After reading this, I have been most bullish on FourSquare in years! I was an avid FourSquare user early on, when it was launched. My Twitter and Facebook feeds were filled with […]

Why Slack?

Mon, 21 Jul 2014 23:03:12 +0000

I have been running remote teams for almost a decade now. Tools available for remote teams have evolved a lot during this time. In the early days tools like Skype made it easier to communicate with remote teams via text, audio and video. After that came a wave of tools like Dropbox, Google Docs that helped manage […]

How we reduced bandwidth by 4X

Wed, 18 Apr 2012 00:14:00 +0000

One of the sites I run has been growing a lot lately. Late last year as the traffic grew, page load times started going up. We already had a lot of things optimized, it runs on a server a bit more powerful than my Macbook Air. I had tried Cloudflare in its early days and […]

Entreporn – NSFW

Tue, 20 Sep 2011 17:37:05 +0000

A couple of weekends ago I was coding at TechCrunch Disrupt’s hackathon. This was my first full 24 hour coding hackathon and it was a lot of fun. While taking a break, I had pizza in my one hand and other scrolling down an article about how some guy shut his company down and lessons […]

Top 4 entrepreneurship podcasts for busy startup founders

Tue, 07 Jun 2011 20:44:13 +0000

One can read several blogs, scan people’s tweets, go to conferences, listen/watch tons of podcasts to learn insights into how other entrepreneurs operated. Who doesn’t like to get free advice from people who have been there done that, but the reality is as a startup founder you always have a shit load of things that you wanted […]

How to communicate with “Regulars” about your startup

Thu, 05 May 2011 21:53:23 +0000

It is ironic that an introvert like me is writing about communication, but here I am. While working on a startup you meet a lot of other people who are in the same boat or have passed through the phase you are in. At the same time you also meet a lot of people who […]

Early thoughts on

Thu, 21 Apr 2011 16:34:28 +0000 is a service that let’s you copy, edit and share webpages. TechCrunch labels as “ on steroids”. The core copy and edit functionality looks really solid and works well. It finds all the images/css/js and other dependencies of the page and replaces them in the page and serves it up from their own S3 […]

Stop using “hits”

Mon, 18 Apr 2011 14:54:59 +0000

Back in the days of early web (pre-bubble 1.0) “hits” was a popular metric used to measure popularity of a webpage/site. Technically a hit is “a request for a file from the web server.” Any file – jpg, png, css, js, pdf, html…you get the point. I am amazed how many people still use “hits” […]
