Brian Madden's life and career
Gabe is on vacation this week and Jack is at an event, and since Tuesday is podcast day for us and it's just me, I decided to tell my life story. :) Well... "Life Story" as it pertains to my career in IT.
I talked for 2 hours. I have no idea whether this is interesting or not, but it was fun to share. I talked about:
- Building robots as a kid.
- Skipping high school to do computer consulting.
- Dropping out of college.
- Getting into Citrix.
- Meeting Gabe.
- Writing and self-publishing my first book.
- Quitting my job to do BrianMadden.com full time.
- Writing my own blog engine.
- Starting BriForum.
- Getting acquired by TechTarget.
I didn't talk too much about the early days of BriForum. When Gabe and Jack are back, we should find Emily (our first event manager) and talk about that as well.
