Maybe the most useful interview I've ever done on Mixergy is with Twitch's cofounder about how he founded the company.

Do yourself a favor and get the transcript. He's super-methodical.


Thanks! That interview is a textbook example of an entrepreneur applying the approach documented in Four Steps to the Epiphany by Steven Blank (and taught, I believe, at Stanford).

If you haven't read Blank's book and you liked the approach in the interview, do yourself a favor and read the book. :)

this is amazing. thanks for sharing... His talk on user testing at Stanford is also amazing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qAws7eXItMk

That's awesome. You should consider posting it as a .epub or .mobi file!

With Google doc you can do "File -> Download as -> epub / pdf" and other formats.

26 page transcript...how long did this take?

One hour.

Think of it as a mini-book.

I shared the Google Doc so you can save it to your Gogle Drive and read it when you have time for something longer than a blog post.

By the way, for anyone who's curious. The original link has 4 upvotes and the Doc has 52 people reading it now.

I think the other commenter meant "how long to transcribe it?", if you did it manually.

(Thanks for the transcription!)

Is there an audiobook version? ;-)

What about the audio version? Can you link to the podcast?
