FailCon 09, a Success!!

have you heard of a successful failure? FailCon 09 just proved this bitter-sweet irony when they gathered successful founders, investors, designers, and developers to answer this question, “What’s gone wrong and how did you fix it?”

the conference devoted to failure was definitely a first of it’s kind. PayPal co-founder Max Levchin talked about how he failed repeatedly before making billions making the payment platform for the web. “The one liberating thing with failure is that you start at like -5 the next time…. Failure? I can fail tomorrow and I don’t care, I’m failing now.”

we often get invited to hear success stories so having people tell how they persevered against failures and still succeed is definitely worth attending…
