MUST WATCH FOR ENTREPRENEURS: An hour with great company builder +Eric Ries
If you are thinking of starting a company, or even if you already have, you should read Eric Ries' new book, The Lean Startup. His methodology has been used by many of San Francisco's best-known startups. You can read more about that on his site: http://theleanstartup.com/

's CTO, +John Engates
and I talk with him about his ideas for building companies. This was our first "Small Teams, Big Impact" show pilot that you'll hear more about around SXSW time.
It's one of the best interviews I did in 2011, and I'm not saying that because I'm wearing a tux!
"What is the smallest amount of work we have to do," Eric asks while explaining what's next after you decided to build a company.
By the way, this is just one of the classes that Rackspace runs as part of its Cloud University. You can see more about that at http://www.rackspace.com/cloud/cloudU/
