And I Get My Marriage Advice From Liz Taylor

by on May 17, 2007 · 2 comments

Outside the tech policy area, but I just had to vent . . . .

In a blog post from Found|Read titled Dangers of a Threesome – (clever) – hapless Kevin Wolf writes of bringing two equal partners into a company formed around a business idea of his. He is distraught because the two partners recently fired him. His third conclusion from this episode – third! not first – is “If the idea for the business originated with you, consider keeping a controlling voting interest in the company.”

No shit. (‘Scuse my French.)

Found|Read is part of the impressive GigaOM network of online news sources and blogs, which produces a wide array of interesting information and thinking. But I wouldn’t listen very long to a running coach, sitting on the ground with skinned knees, who advised me that I should lace my shoes.

    The better question is why wouldn’t the other two be working for you, if your bright idea got the company going in the first place.
