I’m always most proud of the next thing I’m working on but never what I’ve done. My latest project is Everdwell but I’m most proud/excited about what we’re going to be doing next with the product, not what it does today.
I’ve been seeing a lot of Wikipedia redesigns. Someone needs to build a brand new Wiki platform from scratch. I don’t think Wikipedia could update anytime soon but the millions of other sites currently using Wikis (and millions of sites that will) could take advantage of a more well-designed platform.
I’m making this up as I go and haven’t decided on a definite path yet. I want to build companies and products and grow teams. That’s something I’ve always enjoyed.
Many times I was 90% sold on an idea but didn’t commit the last 10%. All of those times someone else was able to execute and build an awesome product or multi-million dollar business. I think Slack is my new favorite “I could have done that” idea. But as they say, “hindsight is 20/20.”
I’ve always loved design and strategy so, if I couldn’t work in tech, I would want a job that allows me to be creative and strategic. A CEO of a non-tech company could be fun. If anything, I do love to write.
Secret. It’s my new addiction.
