I gave a talk at Stanford mid-December 2009, where I was asked to talk about things I learned from starting my second company (Mixer Labs). Below is a presentation I gave, which captures some of the ideas/thoughts I felt were most interesting. Lots of subjectivity and generalizations, but thought people might find it an interesting/amusing read. Some of the slides are lacking context - for which I might make an updated post at a later time.
