Lessons Learned: Technorati to
There is no single framework that helps shape a successful product. Through real life examples of his own experience, Dave Sifry (the founder and Chairman of Technorati—the largest blog search engine in the world) will open up his own folder of lessons learned in online product development. He will share with us:
- Top 5 things you'd always do again and never do again based on Technorati
- Describe your design process for building Technorati. How is Offbeat Guides different?
- Everyone wants to "go viral." How important is that to a successful site?
- What makes or breaks a great web product?
- When *not* to introduce features to a product
