Just finished reading this article from Cnet about Eric Simons, the creator of Classconnect (read the EdLab Review here). It was an interesting read about how he was basically living off the AOL building in the Silicon Valley, eating, showering, and sleeping there. It's inspiring to read about what lengths he went through to save money for his creation, and not to mention his hard work. His product is pretty interesting too and hopefully he'll be able to make it grow, especially now that he has $50,000 in seed funding from Ulu Ventures and Silicon Valley venture capitalist Paul Sherer. But after reading about how hard a worker he is, I'm sure he'll go far. But even that might not be enough, as he's going to have to work smart as well.
