Why are you working for/with tech startups?

I was convinced in[masked] by Paul Graham's essays that the opportunities to create a business instead of working a series of game projects was unmissable. I went to the first Startup School and have been hooked ever since.

What problem are you trying to solve?

I want to provide people a sense of place over the web.

Describe startup life.

It has been a wild ride - working from home, office, coworking and even flying up to the Bay Area to talk about being acquired. But the ability to directly hack the marketplace is what I really love.


I'm Zach Baker, co-founder of and ex-Blizzard programmer.
