I happened to run across a tweet yesterday talking about From Idea to Web Start-up in 21 Days: Creating bacn.com by Jason Glaspey and Scott Kveton and immediately knew that I had to read the story of one of my favorite Portland startups / side projects. I wasn’t disappointed.
By no means a comprehensive manual on how to run a business, it is a great look into the do’s, don’ts, and “Man, why the hell did I do that” moments that come from getting a project off the ground. You might even call it agile business creation.
The book is very well written and has enough Bacon pictures to make any pork lover drool. I only wish I hadn’t read it on my kindle so I could have salivated onto non electronic paper. It’s a fun easy read that will keep your attention. I finished the book in less than 24 hours after downloading it.
I recommend picking this up if you are interested in the intersection of Bacon, Technology, and Startups.
