Of good accidents

“My life has been a series of well-orchestrated accidents; I’ve always suffered from hallucinogenic optimism. I was broke for more than 10 years. I remember staying up all night one night at my first company and looking in couch cushions the next morning for some change to buy coffee. I’ve been able to pay my father back, which is nice, and my mother doesn’t worry about me as much since I got married a year and a half ago.”

– Excerpt from The New York Times piece by Evan Williams, Twitter C.E.O. and Blogger founder

For someone who actually never planned any of this in life (that’s me), this articles strikes a deep chord.

Cheers to good accidents!

    cheers carlo!auee — this is an interesting (albeit long) read:http://gawker.com/5170088/cause-of-death-determined-for-print-mediathe essay is actually about the death of print, but there’s a part there that says one wouldn’t know there’s already a (technological) revolution going on until we’ve seen the end of it, along with its fruits. maybe for twitter, it’s more about changing the landscape of microblogging for now (if it hasn’t done so), then the business model will follow.
