I’m Looking for a Startup Co-Founder

Hi guys, it’s taken me a while to realize that I may really need a co-founder to kick-start my startup. I’m not a very trusting person, and I’m looking for certain qualification in a co-founder that’s hard to come by. It’s been hard to find a great match, so I thought I should just do [...]

How was your Valentine’s Day? Have you used OpenTable.com?

A lot of guys hate Valentine’s Day and I don’t blame them. But with kidding aside, you should really dedicate a few days of the year to your loved one and Valentine’s Day is one of those days. Trouble is that a lot of guys (including me) don’t plan ahead.

Web Development in 2012

Do You Have A Great Domain?

Reflection of 2011

I am glad 2011 is over. 2011 was a very long and at the same time very short year. I had a great shift in my development techniques and very happy about that. I also wanted to share some of the other projects that I worked on in 2011.

Update on the Big Idea

I started working on the “Big Idea” this summer. I wrote a couple of posts on it back in June of this year. I even took time off from blogging to focus on the idea. The idea is still great. You can read my initial posts here and here.

Startups That Are Successful Even Before They Are Started

I’ve been explaining this analogy to a few people lately and I wanted to describe it in more detail here. Having an idea is great, but I’m seeing that a lot of people are taking a wrong path when choosing an idea to work on.
