I went to a party in his parents' basement back in '97.  He tried to tell me how cool it was to work for Booz-Allen & Hamilton.  Nice to see he's made something of himself since then ;-)

According to Pud, he used the "2livecrew" method of marketing.  I love it.

2livecrew marketing...

Try to figure out who will offend the most and target them.  The offended are vocal apparently.

One interesting point in Pud's rather rough presentation was that ALL data has value to someone.  He gave an example of a magazine that started a vc database based on his advice.  They received the data totally free.  Genius. 

I work in the financial industry.  Sometimes it blows my mind how much money there is in getting stock quotes, and dividends and adding the two together.

"Terrible programmar"

So what? he's making millions of dollars and you are still refactoring your code for 10th times.

Get grip dude.

Must be a conservative, thinking money makes up for inadequacies.
