i have an exciting announcement to make, and one that may surprise former and current colleagues…i’m really excited to announce that i’ll be hosting a new video interview series on techcrunch tv (TCTV) called “founders’ stories – engineering companies.” the concept is simple and straight–forward: on the first wednesday of every month at noon pst, TCTV will publish a short video conversation between me and a founder focused exclusively on some of the key technical challenges they faced in the creation of their products and businesses.
i’m personally excited for this new opportunity because it gives me yet another excuse to do what i love most — talk directly with technical founders and learn to understand the inner workings of the technical issues they’ve faced. the beauty of making it into a show is that these conversations become “open-sourced,” in a way, and will hopefully help transfer and spread knowledge within the community through a conversational format. (another potential win in this series is that future founders may better understand how a technical former-operator like me may be thinking in a venture context.)
enough about me, though. it’s all about the guests, and we have a great lineup on tap, such as bradford cross from prismatic (we’ll discuss balancing design and engineering decisions and other topics), a number of founders both at the later stages of their company’s evolution and others that are very early, and more. of course, i’m open to suggestions for guests, so feel free to contact me.
thanks in advance, also, to all the folks at techcrunch and TCTV for the opportunity. if you have any suggestions for guests, or topics to drill into, please don’t hesitate to comment or shoot me a note
here is the first session:
