Future of Web Apps – Evan Williams
Evan Williams, founder of Blogger and Oder, discussed the pros and cons of selling and funding and how to bring in a third-party to assist with the funding process. Most of his discussion was focused around his screw-ups from the Odeo process. I would have liked him to discuss what are the consequences of making mistakes. Here are some notes, they are limited as most of his discussion did not seem note-worthy.
Evan's Best Screw Ups from Building Odeo
- Building for people not like ourselves
- Not adjusting fast enough
- Raising too much money too early
- Not listening to my gut
And his best comment,dont talk. type., means that sometimes just sit down and start typing and eventually something will come out of it. Talking all the time without typing gets you nowhere.
