This time around, he’s got 17 “really good” tips for running a startup. To be honest, many of them are solid, straightforward suggestions. You may not want to follow every one to a tee but having worked for three start-ups, many of the tips make a lot of sense.
Calacanis – and I’m sure he did this on purpose because how else do you capture peoples’ attention without some controversy – is being beat up (some of more passionate posts can be found here and here) for suggesting startups work their employees like dogs, and dissing the idea of work-life balance.
Come on everyone, he’s baiting you. He baited, you bit. Calacanis may very well be drinking the work-like-a-dog Koolaid but he just riffing to grab the spotlight before the tsunami of SXSW coverage starts to roll in.
Nice work, Jason.
