StartUp School AM

Start-Up School jumpstarted with Joe Krauss of Jotspot. He has 7 good start-up lessons, most of it not new. What struck me most was his push for putting the business model on beta when you have your product on beta. This makes your service more “real” and gets people to give you the real compliments. Another good speaker was Bloglines founder Mark Fletcher. He has some technical recommendations on software, hardware, etc. Pretty useful to me since most of the topics talked about were something I’ve taken up during my Cal MBA. I think Atom will find the recommendations useful.

I’m looking forward to the afternoon sessions – they have Tim O’Reilly, Om Malik, Caterina Fake and Joshua Schacter!
