Startups are Harder than They Look

Glenn Kelman has a slightly different take on entrepreneurship, especially startups. Most recently he founded of Redfin, an online market for houses.
If you aren’t doing something worthwhile, you can’t get anyone worthwhile to work on it. I often think about what Ezra Pound once said of his epic poem, that "if it's a failure, it's a failure worth all the successes of its age.”
I remember the Venerable Bede’s complaint that his eighth century contemporaries had lost the fervor of seventh century monks. Even in the darkest of the Dark Ages, people were nostalgic for...the Dark Ages. Snippets from Guy Kawasaki's blog, where Kelman was guest blogger.
