finding and interviewing candidates is stressful, because it s not like there s a team back home coding. If Joe and I are at a meeting, no one is pushing the product forward, and that s scary. There s a question of, Is it better for us to spend all of our time iterating very quickly, or potentially ruin that dynamic by bringing on someone that we don t know well In short, I m nervous about everything. If you re doing a startup and you re relaxed, you should be very worried.

Ross: One thing I didn t know was how tightly connected everyone is in the
Valley. We ll meet someone, and then we ll meet someone who I would never expect to even know that person, and they ll say, I heard you met Tony last week. It s such a small industry, and so much business is done through the network circuit, which is kind of upsetting, because I d rather the good companies get the good deals and the bad ones don t get deals at all. Instead, it s more like, Who do you know I can definitely see where the Google guys came from when they refused to play by these rules. They didn t know anyone, and they didn t schmooze their way in.
Mena Trott
Cofounder, Six Apart
Husband-and-wife cofounders Mena and Ben Trott started Six Apart (named for the number of days between their birthdays) in their apartment in 2001. Trott s personal blog, Dollarshort, was growing in popularity, and she was dissatisfied with the blogging software available at the time. So she and Ben decided to develop their own and share it with some friends. Movable Type became popular almost immediately on its launch in October 2001. In April 2003, Six Apart received funding from Joi Ito s Neoteny. They launched their hosted service, TypePad, later that fall. In January 2005, the company announced the acquisition of Danga Interactive, the makers of LiveJournal. Six Apart launched Vox (formerly known as Comet), a hosted blogging platform with a social networking component, in 2006.
Livingston: Take me back to how things got started. Trott: I started with a blog called Dollarshort in about April of 2001. I did it
because I felt that I needed a creative outlet. I just started writing a blog, writing stories. I was still at my job, but I didn t feel incredibly fulfilled. My blog was getting more and more popular, and we were getting more involved in seeing what people were doing. When the company closed and we got laid off, we said, Let s start working on a blogging tool just release it as donationware and see where that goes. We didn t expect anything from it. We thought we d get donations and maybe some stuff off our Amazon Wish List, but we never imagined anything more than that. As we got more and more involved, we became more ambitious, but I don t think we ever would have woken up and said, Let s start a company. It just never occurred to us that it was even possible. When Ben and I were in college
Founders at Work
(we ve been together since we were in high school), we started to think about a web design company, but it always seemed overwhelming. We had no idea where to start. When I look back, it seemed like the hardest thing in the world. Luckily, it was all kind of accidental. When we released Movable Type, it became popular pretty quickly, and it became a full-time job. I think having customers from day one was the thing that really forced us to be a company. If we had been just talking about a product and we had to build up a customer base and figure out how to market it, that would have been incredibly hard. So what we did was just jump in with no desire to do anything more than create something that we love. Later on when we were talking to VCs, they would say, What problem does this solve We weren t giving pitches, it was just conversational, but that s the thing that never occurred to us. We were never trying to solve anyone s problem other than mine or a few bloggers . But there was a big demand for what we were creating, and Movable Type became really popular. Around July 2002, we were at a fork in the road and we asked ourselves, Do we want to become consultants and focus on building out customizations of Movable Type and doing implementations We went that way for a little bit and then said, This is not fun. (I still have an invoice that we were never paid and we ended up paying out of pocket.) So we said, Let s do something even harder. Let s go straight to the consumer. And we started working on TypePad. We formed the LLC in July of 2002, right before we decided to start doing TypePad. We still didn t have funding it was Ben and I still in the apartment in Richmond. We used the spare bedroom and our desks were literally back to back. We spent a lot of time there, 18 months in total. It s funny when I tell these stories. It seemed like a different world. It s kind of like when people have babies and they say they can t remember how painful it was and they say, Let s have another baby. I think there s a chemical in my brain that forces me to forget how painful the time was.
