When I was a teenager and I started programming and developing websites and web applications I always thought I would end up either founding the biggest internet company in the world or founding a company and selling it to the biggest internet company in the world for millions of dollars. However, as I grew older I realized that I do not want to found a huge company with thousands of employees and shareholders and investors and lot of politics and that I also do not want to sell my company to one of these corporations.
If I ever should found a company (and hopefully I will) I want to create great products with a sustainable business model. I want to gather a small group of extraordinary smart people and I want to create products I love, at a company I love.
In other words, Sparrow, the greatest email client for OS X and the iPhone was bought by Google. There will be no more updates to it and that sucks a lot.
