Developing a New Technology

August 28, 2006 at 4:53 am Leave a comment

There is nothing that gets me more excited than developing a new technology. 

There are many aspects of business that I enjoy. I love teaching and managing people, it is hard to pull me away from a strategy session, and I love forming partnerships. That being said, there is nothing that sparks the adrenaline rush quiet like the process of formulating and implementing innovative technology solutions.

I love the feeling that comes with solving a big problem, and it is only magnified when I can get my hands dirty designing the framework for the solution. I love shaping, refining and implementing technology, and doing things that haven’t been done before. 

If you have ever felt the thrill of imagining a new solution and building it from the ground up, shaping it in your head and then seeing it come to life, then you know what I am referring to. It is one of the most rewarding parts of working in a start-up.

A few days ago we solved a significant hurdle for our company, and over the last few days we have been developing the framework for this solution. I can feel it through my veins; I am really pumped to get this going. There will be some very long nights, but the adrenaline is already pushing me to move harder and faster. 

See you at the finish line.
