You’ve all been asking for it, and it’s here: the full video of Sarah’s interview with Foursquare (and Dodgeball) founder and CEO Dennis Crowley is available below.
Now, as much as I could probably stop there, as many of you will have scrolled down and hit “Play” by now, there are a few things to note. First is that we’ve written stories about some of the event’s highlights, including Crowley’s love for New York’s “Muggles,” why Google’s acquisition of Dodgeball was a failure, how the tech press “hazes” startups, and Foursquare’s plans for monetization, which have nothing to do with banner ads and everything to do with targeting.
And, next week we’ll be having Instagram’s Kevin Systrom take the stage at Madrone Studios to talk about Instagram’s journey, from its pivot away from Burbn to its $1 billion acquisition by Facebook. The journey may end up sounding eerily similar to Foursquare’s (minus the Facebook acquisition), as Crowley told everyone at last night’s event about how hard it was to keep going even though building a company is unbelievably hard.
We’d like to thank Projective Space for sponsoring — and hosting — the event. Sponsorships help us keep the ticket prices low and the pizza and beer free, so if you’re interested in sponsoring an event, please get in touch with Jeanne Logozzo at Jeanne(at)PandoDaily.com.
