  2. Great interview of Eric Ries talking about his Learn Startup Methodology – +Jason
    Calacanis i think this is the least talking you have ever done in one of
    your interviews…. 🙂

    – Startups – Eric Ries of Lean Startup – TWiST #199

  3. I always learn a lot from watching these interviews with +Eric Ries He’s
    the founder of the Lean Startup movement. Check it out.

  4. Long but filled with a lot of good advice on running a startup or new
    product business by +Eric Ries – Startups – – Startups – Eric Ries of Lean
    Startup – TWiST #199! #entrepreneurship

  5. Eric is a well spoken person, I have only seen very few people to be able
    to carry such a long complex point with such sophisticated vocabulary with
    such ease…..

  6. is it just me, or does this look exactly like the set of KassemG’s “Going
    Deep” series?

  7. Hey, I really liked this format of “Old Time Revival”. It’s a great way to
    get exposed to the The Lean Startup rationale.

  8. I would suggest that you go with all platforms… I built my app “Pitch
    Gauge” all by myself for iOS, Android and finishing up Windows Phone now..
    I know time is the issue but all three platforms are very similar to write
    for.. And the fact that you will be getting most of your content from the
    web is ever better.. I would defiantly go mobile.. and like I said.. I
    would pay for the app.. Thanks

  9. This guy is such an attention seeker. Why invite a guest to your show if
    you’re just going to talk over them? Not funny at all.

  10. the Jesus thing was funny also.. did it a bit too long though and then
    followed by using God Damn but other that.. this was the best video yet.. I
    love this Jason guy and Eric is a Business genius.. Thanks for this great
    video… p.s. keep putting out videos like this and I would pay up to $4.99
    for your mobile app..
