On Saturday I went to Stanford University to attend Startup School.
An event aimed at teaching technical people what they need to know
about starting a startup. Luckily I was in SF this week so I only had
to drive to Palo Alto (50km south of SF).

They invited an impressive list of the speakers:

  • Caterina Fake, Co-Founder, Flickr
  • Mark Fletcher, Founder, Bloglines; Founder, ONElist
  • Paul Graham, Partner, Y Combinator; Co-founder, Viaweb
  • Joe Kraus, Co-founder, JotSpot; Co-founder, Excite
  • Page Mailliard, Partner, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati
  • Om Malik, Senior Writer, Business 2.0
  • Tim O’Reilly, Founder and CEO, O’Reilly Media
  • Chris Sacca, Head of Special Initiatives, Google
  • Joshua Schachter, Founder, del.icio.us
  • George Willman, Associate, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati
  • Ann Winblad, Founding Partner, Hummer Winblad

talks were excellent and I also got a chance to meet many interesting
people from the Internet industry in the US such as Tim O’Reilly, Om
Malik, and others. I think we should try and convince Paul to organise something similar in Europe for Autumn 2006!

The Kresge Auditorium was full!
