Celebrating Failure

  • Kevin Galligan: Everyone has a launch party. Nobody does the last-stage-of-grief thing.
  • Chris Siragusa: I don't talk about it that much. It's one of the greatest failures of all time, and it's never had a proper eulogy.
  • FJP: New York Magazine has a story called "The Final Pivot: A Funeral for Failed Start-ups" about an event that was organized to help budding entrepreneurs learn from those that tried but failed before them. Kevin Galligan was an organizer. Chris Siragusa, one of the event's speakers, is the former CTO of Kozmo.com which flamed out after raising $280 million. http://bit.ly/UMb94L
