Here were a few of our favorite quotes:
“If you don’t know who your customer is, you don’t know what quality is.”
“It makes sense, it’s just wrong.” – product strategy when the market doesn’t agree

Eric just authored his first book, Startup Lessons Learned, which you can preorder here. And a big special thanks to Accel for sponsoring our event!
