I'm not sure what happened with that post on the silliness of stealth startups. Man, it sure took off. 200,000 page views, 800 Tweets, and still going. I spent the week talking to dozens of entrepreneurs about their startups, answering Facebook and LinkedIn requests, chatting with people on Twitter. Love it!
And then...the New York Times calls! As my roomate would say, THAT'S HUGE!
I'm just getting around to posting about this now. Check it out. It's a nice write-up of the blog post.
New York Times, 2/21/2011: Got a Great Idea? Tell Everyone!
The author also added a nice quote from our interview that I keep meaning to write an entire blog post around:
"There’s one piece of advice that Mr. Freedman ignored, even though he heard it a lot from some wise, experienced people — that his idea wouldn’t work. Instead, he followed the wisdom offered decades ago by Arthur C. Clarke, the science fiction writer: “When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right; when he states that something is impossible, he is probably wrong.”
Thanks David for the write-up. And thanks to everyone who spread the love. Much appreciated.
