Had an amazing guest, Jamie Siminoff, on This Week in Startups on Friday. I’ve learned a lot from Jamie about keeping it simple, having a great domain name and moving fast.
This one is really worth watching, especially since we’ve (finally!) upped the quality of our video on YouTube. Turns out for the last six months or so one of our former techs was downgrading the video before uploading it to Youtube…. you know, so they could save time and make it look like there was mud on the lenses of our HD cameras….. but I digress!
Also, sadly, Lon Harris is moving on and this is his last show as newsreader. Starting next week I will rotating people in and out until we find a permanent replacement. Many thanks for the hard work, good times and exceptional results that Lon has brought to TWO of my companies (Mahalo and ThisWeekIn.com). Lon earned his “Calacanis MBA” while being tortured mentored by me for the past four years. Your company would be lucky to hire him–but please no offers under six figures! email lon AT thisweekin.com to hire him fast!!! He’s not going to last on the open market.
We’re almost to show 100…. and folks are wondering who will be guest #100: Mark Cuban? Evan Williams? Mark Pincus? Mark Zuckerberg? Steve Jobs? Tim Armstrong? Mike Arrington?
