These people are celebrities now. What was it like when they were just a couple friends with an idea? Founders like Steve Wozniak (Apple), Caterina Fake (Flickr), Mitch Kapor (Lotus), Max Levchin (PayPal), and Sabeer Bhatia (Hotmail) tell you in their own words about their surprising and often very funny discoveries as they learned how to build a company. Where did they get the ideas that made them rich? How did they convince investors to back them? What went wrong, and how did they recover? Nearly all technical people have thought of one day starting or working for a startup. For them, this book is the closest you can come to being a fly on the wall at a successful one, to learn how it’s done. But ultimately these interviews are required reading for anyone who wants to understand business, because startups are business reduced to its essence. The reason their founders become rich is that startups do what businesses do—create value—more intensively than almost any other part of the economy. What are the secrets that make successful startups so insanely productive? Read this book, and let the founders themselves tell you. ___________________________________________________________ Interviews in Founders at Work include: David Heinemeier HanssonPartner, 37signals and creator of Ruby on Rails Charles GeschkeFounder of Adobe Ron GrunerFounder of Alliant Computer and Shareholder.com Steve WozniakFounder of Apple Philip GreenspunFounder of ArsDigita Evan WilliamsFounder of Blogger.com and Odeo Craig NewmarkFounder of Craigslist Joshua SchachterFounder of Del.icio.us Joe KrausFounder of Excite and JotSpot Blake RossCreator of Firefox Caterina FakeFounder of Flickr Joel SpolskyFounder of Fog Creek Software Paul BuchheitCreator of Gmail Ray OzzieFounder of Groove Networks and Iris Associates Sabeer BhatiaFounder of Hotmail James HongFounder of HotorNot Mitch KaporFounder of Lotus Bob DavisFounder of Lycos Arthur van HoffFounder of Marimba Mark FletcherFounder of ONElist and Bloglines Ann WinbladFounder of Open Systems and Hummer Winblad Max LevchinFounder of PayPal Mike LazaridisFounder of Research in Motion Mena TrottFounder of Six Apart Dan BricklinFounder of Software Arts and creator of VisiCalc James CurrierFounder of Tickle Mike RamsayFounder of TiVo Steve KauferFounder of TripAdvisor Paul GrahamFounder of Viaweb and Y Combinator Brewster KahleFounder of WAIS, Internet Archive and Alexa Internet Steve PerlmanFounder of WebTV Tim BradyFirst employee at Yahoo!
