This is an interview I did with the CEO of one of my favorite tech companies, stocktwits.com. It is short and to the point! To me, this is the type of interview I would take to a conference and really soak up every bit of knowledge I could about the tech industry. Stocktwits was founded by two guys who have been entrepreneurs and investors for quite some time, and like me, they are passionate about sharing their knowledge with others.
This is the type of interview I would take to a conference and really soak up every bit of knowledge I could about the tech industry. My company was recently acquired by another company, and while I still have a lot of relationships with the folks I worked with at stocktwits, I’m not really sure how they are going to feel about the situation. I can’t help but feel a little disappointed because I didn’t think they would.
Stocktwits is a stock market and technology site that’s all about sharing knowledge, and they’re all about sharing knowledge with each other. I think one of the hardest things to do is to take that knowledge and share it with people who don’t know you and who don’t know the tech industry. The best way to do that is to just share it with the people you think are going to be able to help you.
Stocktwits has a lot of members and a lot of members use it. Thats good, but it’s also a site that’s built on the philosophy that “people who tell the truth are useful, people who tell the truth are better.” If you do something that is not useful, you will be shunned. If you do something that is useful, you will be trusted. So it’s important to be respectful of the other users.
If you do something that is not useful it will be abandoned. If something that is useful it will be taken care of. So even if you think you have something useful, you may be wrong. If you do something that is not useful you will be shunned. If you do something that is useful you will be trusted.
Be prepared for the possible consequences. You will be more likely to get killed than you will to get robbed.
I know I’m in the minority when it comes to this, but don’t be a dick to other users. If you don’t do something useful, it’s not going to get done. If you do something that’s not useful, you’ll be shunned. And if you do something that’s useful you’ll be trusted.
If you do something that is useful youll be shunned. But if you do that and you dont do something that is useful, youll be a whiner! Its all about the person who has the ability to do that.
I really believe you should never be a dick. But if you are, at least be a good one, and never be a dick.
