Some people had a laugh when I started a company without “an idea”. In reality, my idea is to slowly build the next great tech company. Products are cheap and last for years, but companies exist over decades (or longer). Our first few muser-led products might be failures, but I believe that, as a long-term strategy, a few winners are inevitable.
I don’t want to focus on just one idea, I want to solve problems for real people through beautiful products. There’s so much untapped potential and still so much to improve.
That’s why I’m thrilled to be joining the crazy-talented team at Elepath.
At an earlier office, a law firm sharing Tumblr’s floor accused its employees of littering paper towels and posted a sign in the bathroom: PLEASE PUT YOUR PAPER TOWELS IN THE GARBAGE. Each day Tumblr employees replaced the sign, which had been printed in 48-point Times New Roman, with a sign printed in slightly smaller font, so that the text gradually vanished.
