Founders at Work: Stories of Startups Early Days

  10/02/2012       gatelin      0 Comments

Loved every second of this book. Each chapter is a different story of a startup founder. I read it slowly so it wouldnt end, and read many chapters twice. My biggest take was that most founders didnt necessarily know what they were doing - or even that they were on to something big. But they were all determined to start a company - that was the only thing they all had in common.Here are some good quotes from the book:Id say determination is the single most important quality in a startup founder. If the founders I spoke with were superhuman in any way, it was in their perseverance. -- Jessica Livingston (the author)I see way too many people give up in the startup world. They just give up too easily. Recruiting is a classic example. I dont even hear the first no that somebody says. When they say, No, Im not interested, I think Now its a real challenge. Nows when the tough part begins. Its hard to identify talent, but great people dont look for jobs, great people are sold on jobs. And if theyre sold theyre going to say no at first. You have to win them over.-- Joe Kraus (founder of Excite)Ultimately, you cannot accomplish something completely on your own. You really need to develop a network of people who win when you win.-- Ray Ozzie (Founder of Groove Networks, Chief Architect of Microsoft)My philosophy on these types of companies - consumer-based Internet companies - is that you dont need to worry about the business model initially. If you get users, then everything else follows. Basically any technology can be copied, any concept can be copied. In my opinion, what makes one of these companies valuable is the users. That cant be copied-- Mark Fletcher (Founder of eGroups and Bloglines)I am not a hunter, never have fired a gun, but Im told that if you want to shoot a duck, you have to shoot where the duck is going to be, not where the duck is. Its the same with introducing technology: if youre only focused on the market today, by the time you introduce your solution to that problem, therell probably be several others already entrenched.-- Charles Geschke (Founder of Adobe Systems)The biggest thrill is frankly not the financial success, its the ability to have an impact. Because were both engineers at heart and thats every engineers dream - to build something that millions of people will use.-- Charles Geschke (Founder of Adobe Systems)Most programmers dont think about the user experience. They get a spec book, and they say, Well, Im going to meet this spec to make the customer happy. Thats not really enough; you have to make something good for the user if you want to call yourself an engineer.-- Philip Greenspun (Founder of ArsDigita)People dont like to write. Its hard. The people who were really good software engineers were usually great writers; they had tremendous ability to organize their thoughts and communicate. The people who were sort of average-quality programmers and had trouble thinking about the larger picture were the ones who couldnt write.-- Philip Greenspun (Founder of ArsDigita)Things never work out right the first time. Youve always got to do it two or three times to get it right. And things always go wrong. So persistence is the key to success. I had seen that in my career. I had seen that in computer design projects. I had seen that through my whole life. And so that word is the best single advice I can give to entrepreneurs. The key to success, if you had to sum it up in one, is persistence.-- Ron Gruner (Founder of Alliant Computer Systems and Shareholder.com)Id just keep thinking, keep trying to find the language and find new employees, trying to meet the VC who would understand my vision and back me. I met with 43 VCs.-- James Currier (Founder of Tickle.com)

Tavasz van Styriában. Márpedig ez háborút jelent.Tizenkilenc éve folyik a vér. A könyörtelen Orso nagyherceg brutális harcot folytat a civakodó Nyolcak Ligájával. Miközben hadseregek menetelnek, fejek hullanak és városok égnek, a színfalak mögött bankárok, papok és ősibb, sötétebb hatalmak marakodnak azon, ki legyen az új király.A háború tán maga a pokol, de Monza Murcatto, a talinsi kígyó, Orso nagyherceg leghírhedtebb zsoldosa számára kiváló alkalmat kínál a pénzkeresetre. Győzelmei népszerűvé tették – munkaadója szerint egy árnyalattal népszerűbbé is a kelleténél. Murcatto jutalmul egy szakadék mélyén végzi hát összetört csontokkal, bosszúra éhesen. Bármi is az ára, hét embernek meg kell halnia.Murcatto szövetséget köt Styria legmegbízhatatlanabb alkoholistájával, Styria legkiszámíthatatlanabb méregkeverőjével, egy életét a számok megszállottjaként élő sokszoros gyilkossal meg egy barbárral, aki nem akar mást, csak helyesen cselekedni. Ellenségének tudhatja a fél országot. Mind ennek tetejébe utána küldik a világ legveszélyesebb emberét, hogy találja meg, és fejezze be, amit Orso nagyherceg elkezdett.Tavasz van Styriában. Márpedig ez bosszút jelent.

Hildegard Knef. Een ster, een tijdperk

  10/02/2012       kissfmdance      0 Comments

Adrian Stahlecker, kunstschilder en auteur van het standaardwerk Film en kunst in Ballingschap -Duitse kunstenaars op de vlucht voor het nazi-regime, volgt het leven van de actrice-zangeres Hildegard Knef vanaf de sombere vooroorlogse jaren in Duitsland tot aan haar dood in februari 2002. Stahlecker maakte als vijftienjarige jongen kennis met deze actrice, toen hij in een Haagse bioscoop de film Illusion in Moll zag, waarin Knef ongeneeslijk ziek is. Begeleid door een zigeunerorkest zingt ze met haar indringende stem het treurige lied Illusionen, waarin onvervulde levensillusies de boventoon voeren. Het maakte indruk op Stahlecker. In Hildegard Knef- een ster, een tijdperk reconstrueert hij Knefs leven vol ups en downs in de tijd waarin zij leefde.Aan bod komen de schandalen waarin zij terecht kwam, haar huwelijk met een Amerikaanse militair, waardoor zij naar de Verenigde Staten verhuisde en haar terugkeer naar Duitslan d. Haar leven nam mythische proporties aan. De eens rijke filmdiva kreeg te maken met een aftakelende gezondheid en raakte financieel aan lager wal. De laatste jaren van haar leven waren dramatisch. Adrian Stahlecker brengt in dit boek opzienbarende feiten naar voren uit het leven van Hildegard Knef. Hij onthult haar affaires met een fanatieke nazi, schrijft over haar moederschap op latere leeftijd, haar belangstelling voor het occulte en haar geloof in wonderdokters.
