Currently reading: Founders at Work

Picked this up from Amazon and am slowly going through each of the interviews. It's written by Jessica Livingstone, who is a partner at VC Y Combinator.

Have really enjoyed the Max Levchin (Paypal, Slide), Sabeer Bhatia (Hotmail) and Joe Kraus (Excite) stories.

Whilst most stories took place during the Web 1 chaos, most of the stories are still captivating - demonstrating the grit, confidence and patience required when building a web business.

Y Combinator aint a VC....
more of a small, furry steam catapult.

But yeah, a great read.
