I started reading Ben’s blog in the summer of 2004 during my second semester of business school. Brad Feld had spoken at one of my classes and mentioned his own blog. In one of Brad’s posts, he mentioned Ben. I’ve been reading Ben’s blog ever since. I find it somewhat humbling to read Ben’s blog. For one, he has accomplished more with his very short life than most people I know. He’s an articulate writer who reads extensively and thinks very deeply about a variety of topics. It is no surprise that he was asked to write a autobiography of his extraordinary entrepreneurial life even though he is not yet old enough to toast his success with a glass of champagne.
