An Interview with the Founder of Hashable

Creating new things isn’t easy. The guy who invented Jams obviously thought that they were a brilliant idea – and if you still rock them, then you go girlfriend – but their popularity faded decades ago.

So when someone does invent something that seems like a sure hit, it’s important to recognize them and pick their brain. This is just what mediabistro’s founder Laurel Touby did when interviewing Hashable’s founder Michael Yavonditte for the mbStartups video series.

In part one Yavonditte explains how Hashable – the social networking site based on relationships – got its start. In part two he goes a lot deeper, offering insight into his stock strategy.
