Entrepreneurial Misfits

In the summer of 2005, I moved to Medford, MA with my college roommate, Steve, after convincing him to start a startup with me. That company ended up being Reddit and over the next year and a half we toiled away on it. None of the apartments we rented had A/C, so I’d come to Diesel during those hot summer days and literally spend all day long there because the A/C was cold and the coffee was hot. I tried to keep buying and tipping enough throughout the day that people wouldn’t get pissed at me, which seemed to work, because no one complained. I’m so happy it’s still thriving. May another generation of entrepreneurial misfits come through in order to get a cup of the good stuff and work on creating their little piece of magic.
