“5 sure signs that a good startup is going bad” came up in my Zite magazine. It’s a pretty good read, well worth jaunting over there to read it. (Go ahead, I’ll wait until you return.) It’s written for entrepreneurs, and it got me thinking about my list of start-up warning signs for employees.
Either I’m the most curdled curmudgeon in the world, or the most insightful person in the world. It’s a bimodal graph with no middle ground.
I lurk on the Seattle Tech Startups list, follow GeekWire and TechFlash (which went downhill after Bishop and Cook left), keep abreast of what’s cooking in NWEN, and occasionally attend after-work local tech events.
Dang couldn’t say what they’re building, because Kiha’s still in stealth-mode. There’s been only a trickle of info published about them, so I surfed to their site, thinking I’d find a few tidbits, maybe the founders’ names, or some hints as to what they’re doing, etc. Well I didn’t get any of that, but I did get a great laugh for the day. They’ve easily got the most creative stealth-mode site I’ve seen in a long time! If they’re half as creative with the rest of their business as they are with their web site, they’ll be a great place to work at.
Kiha, good luck in whatever it is you’re doing! And congratulations on landing Dang.
