What is it?

Guy Kawasaki's Blog: Guy, the premier entrepreneur's inspiration and expert finally (FINALLY) has a blog. It started at the end of Dec '05 and I was compelled to immediately post about it here. But I put my emotion and admiration for the man on hold long enough to see if he was going to do a quality job. Well, it probably hasn't been long enough yet, but his stuff is just so gosh darned good that you've got to get over there while you can start at the beginning and read it all.


Who makes it?

Guy Kawasaki

Why is it the killerest?

Guy's book, The Art of the Start is the best book on entrepreneurism I've ever seen. He's a veteran, a realist, and a great writer. He's a VC with an entrepreneur's heart and his blog is chock full of that goodness. Take this excellent entry from 1/8/06, with this snippet:

I'm saying it's okay to ship crap--I'm not saying that it's okay to stay crappy. A company must improve version 1.0 and create version 1.1, 1.2, ... 2.0. This is a difficult lesson to learn because it's so hard to ship an innovation; therefore, the last thing employees want to deal with is complaints about their perfect baby. Innovation is not an event. It's a process.

What could be improved?

His design is a template! Come on Guy, hire someone to make it sexy. (ok fine, so he's practicing what he's preaching in my quote above).

How much does it cost?

I discovered Guy’s blog today and the man has some real horse sense. The good part: he’s generous enough to write it down and articulate it in an easy-to-understand fashion. The bad part: some of us really need some of his more basic tips because we tend to lose sight of the obvious when we work too hard.
