Business of Software 2010

Posted by Mark Rogers on Oct 9, 2010 | 


Just back from the Business of Software Conference 2010. Met some interesting people and heard lots of great speakers, but two really stood out. Firstly, Derek Sivers, a musician who founded CD Baby, then sold it for $20 million and gave the money to charity. He set up the site to sell his band's CDs, then people from other unsigned bands asked him to sell their CDs as well. Fast forward 10 years and he's running a thriving business.
