About Twitter – Evan Williams and Biz Stone Q&A at D7
At All Things D conference D7, Kara, Walt, and team have some amazing content coming out of there. Here is the Q&A with Twitter founders Ev and Biz.
Twitter co-founders Evan Williams and Biz Stone. A year ago their “micromessaging” platform was unknown outside of a small circle of digerati. Now the service has broken through to the mainstream, or at least to the mainstream media (thanks, Oprah!). But while Twitter has no problem generating attention, it’s still unclear how the company will actually generate revenue.
On a personal note, in the Q&A I find the reference to Odeo fascinating specifically Walt’s comment about Apple killing podcasting. Before developing SiliconAngle Labs (blog and venture incubator) I founded a similar podcasting venture to Odeo (PodTech). Things looked very positive for podcasting, but all of a sudden the market never materialized (some say like Walt that Apple killed it). I had a similar experience at PodTech and had to change the direction of the company. There is a lesson in this interview for VCs and investors. Look what Ev and Biz did after Odeo.
