Halloween was a blast, both in the office as seen above and taking my kids out and about.
It was interesting to note the acquisition announcements as both Jotspot and Reddit were acquired by Google and Conde Nast respectively. I used both services on occasion and liked them both. I was reading Jotspot founder Joe Kraus’ blog back before he actually started Jotspot, so it was good to see it run the life from startup to acquisition.
I think the lesson is that if you build a great tool and technology that is useful and easy to use, you’ll have success whether you’re acquired or not.
