Success in 10 steps?

Added on by Chris Saad.
Evan Williams was the co-founder of Pyra Labs which created Blogger. If you don't know these two brands, then you probably don't care about this post! He is now doing something called Odeo which is about recording and sharing audio (podcasts++).

He has written an article for the Web 2.0 generation about '10 things you need to know to be successful'.

I have come across it more than once and each time I think to myself that I need to read it - but invariably I get distracted.

Finally, I have found the time to sit down and read through it - and even some of the links! I think it's fantastic. Evan has a great writing style (Casual you might even say hah) and is obviously an authoritative source! There is also something surreal about his using blogger to communicate his thoughts.

Inside that article he also links to another post he has made about "Running your company on web apps" Beyond the fact that its a great list, he also mentions creating a 'dashboard' for keeping track of your web-based business tools.

Perhaps a 'Universal Gadget' will help? Now if only we could con Evan into using Touchstone ;)
