I was surprised to see one of our many talented software developer members, Josh, was actually ranked by CNN as one of the top 40 under 40 Entrepreneurs for 2009. Even more surprising, it turns out he started Twitter!
Then....I wondered, why the heck would a founder of Twitter join our team — we must have some big believers in what we are doing. I know I for one believe it — but to convince one of the founders of Twitter?!! Really? I know they are struggling to find their business model, but still.
Then......I realized my eyes were playing tricks on me.
