Personal entrepreneurship? Here’s one way to start
Here’s an interesting opportunity for personal entrepreneurship.
One of the companies I’ve been working with has a free wiki called PBwiki. (A wiki is an easy-to-use Web site that lets you collaborate with others on things like planning a trip or running a project.)
PBwiki makes it “as easy to create your own wiki as a peanut butter sandwich.” Try it out–it takes about 10 seconds to make http://YourName.pbwiki.com at http://www.PBwiki.com.
This is the prototypical startup—-2 Stanford guys, working out of our garages, eating Ramen, etc. Sustenance issues aside, things have gotten big recently. In the last 12 weeks, we’ve become the biggest wiki farm online, with over 13,000 wikis.
We’re looking for an intern. Someone special. Someone to help us take it to the next level, who’s been reading my articles and keeps shrugging, saying “So what? I already knew that.” Technical proficiency is strongly preferred, but we’re looking for someone who can come up with the great ideas and then, more importantly, get them done. And you must know about wikis.
If this is you, send me your URL, your PBwiki username, and your background.
If it’s not you, but you know the right person, please refer them. If you forward the person we bring on, we’ll give you $101. (It’s not much, but it’s a startup!) Tell you what—-if you’re in the Bay area, I’ll hand-deliver it in $1 bills.
Thanks for your help.
