How did a company turn a web site about talking cats into the web’s largest network of humor and entertainment sites? Sure as grass is green, sure as the sky is blue, you can bet that they didn’t do it the normal way.
In his session on “Life at Cheezburger,” Scott Porad, CTO of the Cheezburger Network, will regale you with fantastic tales about how they prioritize and stay focused, tickle you with dramatic stories of how we do our product development and web operations, and maybe even pontificate about how the future doesn’t look all that much different than the past.
The Cheezburger Network is the company behind the hugely popular I Can Has Cheezburger? and Failblog.org. The Cheezburger Network is a collection of web sites where every day millions of people share moments of joy through the humor and wonder of LOL.
Scott has spent his entire career working at web startups, and as a result he’s developed some ideas about them. Are these ideas good? Are they bad? Does the Devil Wear Prada? Who knows!? But, he’s trying them at Cheezburger and they seem to be working…maybe they’ll work for you too!
