LinkedIn’s Founder on Innovating in a Web 2.0 World

Insightful¬†interview with LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman in which he talks about his background and what it means to be an entrepreneur. Here’s a sampling:

  • “This is one of the things I love about entrepreneurship. You’re encountering new challenges, and you have to learn at a very fast rate.”
  • “I realized that the world was transforming every individual into a small business.”
  • “Part of the way you stay current as a professional is sharing information and tips on what’s going on in your industry, current best practices. That’s how you learn.”

The complete interview in Inc. isn’t very long, and it’s definitely worth the read.
