How things change. (I saw this article on TechCrunch posted by Greg Kumparak). Please click link to view full article to include Brian Acton’s tweets. http://techcrunch.com/2014/02/19/how-things-change/
Four years ago, Brian Acton was looking for a job.
His job at Yahoo, where he’d filled many engineering roles over 11 years, had come to an end.
He was networking with recruiters:
He met with Twitter. Twitter said no:
He met with Facebook. Facebook said no:
So he and Jan Koum, a colleague from Yahoo, set out to do their own thing.
Today, they sold that thing to Facebook for 19 billion dollars.
Life is crazy.
