On some random blog, I found a link to this book “Founders at Work“, a book interviewing the founders of tech companies. The person mentioned Caterina talks about Flickr in it, among big famous 70s and 80s software geniuses so I ordered it thinking it’d be a history book about a bunch of classic Silicon Valley companies with maybe a recent one like Flickr thrown in there.
It just showed up and I can’t believe how many recent companies are in it (del.icio.us, Blogger, Six Apart, 37Signals, etc) but I didn’t hear about this book from any of the long-term bloggers that are part of it. C’mon Ev, Mena, Jason, and others! I read your blogs daily, and would have ordered this book weeks ago if I knew it existed.
