It’s always fun to be able to say the words, “It’s shipped!” , especially if you don’t actually have to do the shipping. Yesterday, paper copies of The Web Startup Success Guide started arriving at customer’s doors; I got my 20 author copies in the middle of an interview for a future Startup Success Podcast episode. Also, Apress is now selling the PDF version: very handy given the number of URLs in it. (Update (7/24/09 7pm PST: Apress is working to make this PDF Kindle-ready. It’s not as of now.)
This book would not have been possible without the cooperation and help of a great many people. Today though, I’d like to point out one of my personal heroes that writing this book gave me the opportunity to interview: David Allen, creator of the Getting Things Done productivity methodology and best-selling author.
David was kind enough to give me an extensive interview on the intersection between GTD and a range of topics: building a startup, working online, using Twitter and more. It’s a long interview – 6,000+ words – so I’ve made it the GTD page of 47hats.
If you know about GTD, and you are building a startup or microISV, this is the interview you’ve been waiting for. If you’re building a startup or microISV and don’t know about GTD, you need to read this interview. Seriously.
