One night I was working on TimeOP. In the backround I was playing tunes from I receive this text message from a high school computer science professor. The text message was like “Are you still on Tuesday, the 16th of November 2010 ?”. The message didn’t make any sense, especially since I hadn’t talked to this guy in years (although we got along really well in high school). I was actually wondering how he got my number.

Next thing I know I violently wake up. I had had the weirdest startup nightmare. And yes, it was about TimeOP.

Now you may think it was about our project failing to get traction. Or about my being naked in a room fool of VCs. Or maybe about potential clients just walking out on my presentation. But no, no…. it was far more interesting.

Be flashy, be provocative, be challenging ! Even be offensive ! Even the worst of jokes are preferable to your being boring. The worst thing you can do is keep a constant, mellow, nearly inaudible tone during the whole presentation. This puts your audience out faster than you can say XANAX.
