It really depends on who you ask…..


To steal the job of a decent, hardworking American.


Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes, the
chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed I’ve not been told.


In my day we didn’t ask why the chicken crossed the road. Somebody
told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough.


We don’t really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to
know if the chicken is on our side of the road, or not. The chicken is
either against us, or for us. There is no middle ground here.


Although I voted to let the chicken cross the road, I am now against it!
It was the wrong road to cross, and I was misled about the chicken’s
intentions. I am for it now, and will remain against it.


The problem we have here is that this chicken won’t realize that he
must first deal with the problem on “THIS” side of the road before it
goes after the problem on the “OTHER SIDE” of the road. What we need
to do is help him realize how stupid he’s acting by not taking on his
“CURRENT” problems before adding “NEW” problems.

I am the founder of Tandem Entrepreneurs .

Tandem is a new vehicle for entrepreneurship that focuses on an emerging class of software and Internet companies that, with small teams and well under $1M, can get substantial user adoption in a six to nine of months. The Tandem principals act as an extended team for each set of founders and also provide funding in small doses to these nimble businesses.

Prior, I spent the first ten years deep in technology, working at Xerox PARC, HP and Oracle. I was then on the founding team at Webvan, where I helped build technology that drove a service that combined the challenges of Amazon and FedEx. I experienced the entire cycle of a company from zero to $4 Billion and back in a few short years. The journey taught mea lot about customers (acquisition and retention) and about operations (costs and excellence). I then co-founded Business Signatures, where I played a key role in every aspect of the business, including defining, marketing and selling the product until the company’s acquisition by Entrust in 2006.

I have a B.S.E.E. from Indian Institute of Technology, an M.S.C.S. from Rice University, and an M.S. in Management from Stanford University.
