24 years ago – starting at Microsoft

There are probably better ways to remember these things, but there you go – for 12+ years I have posted things in Facebook and it does a nice job reminding me. Given the privacy issues I’m beginning to pull these things out and publish them on a site that in the end I own. Even if, ironically, the content is public.

Every journey starts with a single step

After leaving Microsoft and then doing fun work at Amazon it was time for me to try something, well, smaller. So I tried my own startup – Bonavika was an attempt to reduce distracted driving. It was a good idea but we were such rookies. Eventually I needed to make some money so I went to a funded, ~120 person company, Cyanogen. That was a good experience with some ups and downs. The key thing though is I knew I wanted to keep working on the smaller, entrepreneurial side – well – as long as I don’t run out of money:-)

May 23rd we published the first step of my newest leap of faith – Ramp Catalyst. Please check out our website. Clearly the paint is still dripping and we have some procedural work to get to.

More to come later.
