19 comments Latest by Jon

I’m honored to be nominated for the Venture Voice Entrepreneur of the Year. I’m asking for your vote.

You can vote via a form on the web or by calling your vote in (an audio vote is worth 5x a web form vote). To call in your vote, dial 212-461-4850 or skype: venturevoice. Please say:

  • Your first name (last name if you want to give it)
  • Your city and state
  • Who you’re voting for (Show choices)
  • Why you’re voting for him/her

You can listen to my Venture Voice Podcast to hear my take on small business, building a web-business, and our philosophy for web-based application design. This Salon.com cover story on 37signals also has some great background on what we’ve done and what we’re up to.

Vote today!

Wow!

Talk about being an opportunist!

I voted for ya Jason, but I put in a word for David too.

;-)

Nice typo in their headline graphic - “entreprenuer”

Congrats on the nomination. Beyond that, thanks for sharing the link to the podcast, which is the most insanely information packed podcast I’ve everheard. It’s nice to actually get into the mind of Jason Fried and the philosophies that drive 37 signals.

Tom Szaky from TerraCycle had my vote until 30 min into the VV interview when he said his goal was to sell the company; wtf?

Tommy 12 Dec 05

Congrats Jason. You and your team deserve it.

Justin Reese 12 Dec 05

Voted via Skype. Made sure to fumble my words and make no sense, to ensure they don’t air it.

Tracey 12 Dec 05

Jason, you and the entire team at 37signals deserve the vote.

It still amazes me how many people attempt to create 37signals style products and companies.

Tom O'Brien 12 Dec 05

Voted via the web form. I hope you and your team keep up the good work.

JF 12 Dec 05

Thanks everyone. Really means a lot.

Hope that you don’t win…. you don’s want to jinx the great success that you’re having!

Once you start getting awards like this you know that it’s downhill from that point onwards. Next it will be the front cover of Time magazine - then it’s all over.

Seriously, well done. I just voted for ya.

Mat Atkinson 13 Dec 05

In fact voted twice, just like I pressed the Send button. Doh!

Isn’t it wonderful how, in order to read the salon.com article which leads in with ” the Web is finally becoming as fun and flexible as your favorite software.”, you have to get through 2 (doubly not-fun) screens of ads?!!?

When I finally got to the article I felt like a kid who’s been caught eating bootleg candy and been made to lick mouldy cheese as punishment, [bad metaphor, I know]. I tell you, its an outrage in this day and age to undergo that for ‘free content’ and I think I’ll not visit another article if I see its posted there again!

Sidenote - cheers Jason, good luck.

Why is it an outrage to have to do something in order to get something for free? bottom line is nothing is free. someone has to pay for that content.

Bill Preachuk 13 Dec 05

Well done.

Just to let everyone know - the VV Podcast appears to be the same one featured on ITConversations a few months ago.

Great interview - just hoping to save some of you from downloading a podcast that you’ve already heard.

JF 13 Dec 05

Bill, the IT conversation podcast was a talk I gave at eTech. The VV podcast is an interview. Two different audios.

Rob Poitras 13 Dec 05

I voted over the phone. Jason and the 37signals camp has been a big help to the different projects I am working on by way of basecamp, reading SVN, and listening to an occasional podcast.
The other people on the list are also talented, but I think that SVN does the best job at “getting real” with giving ideas that can be used. Lots of great ideas/principles always posted but are central to the overall 37S philosophy.

Bill Preachuk 14 Dec 05

Sorry Jason. My mistake.

Jon 22 Dec 05

Voted for ya Jason. ;-)
