Don’t get it wrong, it’s not a hack day
Why and how it works
I met James Hill on a RGBA meet up in mid of this year and he invited Felix, ihower and me to join Startup Weekend Taipei in Aug.
So what is Startup Weekend? It is a 2 days event for entrepreneurs to share new ideas and to turn them into products within 54 hours.
The fellowing is how it goes:
- Pitch your idea.
- Vote for the top 10 ideas(we had 14 at the end).
- Join or recruit others to your team.
- Discuss features, business models and start building the product.
- Demo & present.
Install the latest node.js via apt-get
There are several ways to setup a node.js development environment on Ubuntu, you can either choose to download and compile it form source or using apt-get to do the works for you. Because node.js is still a pretty young project, it updates frequently. I suggest installing node.js via apt-get. You will find it is much easier not only to install but also update it. If you are on a Mac you can check out this post for the instruction.

I was pretty excited for my virgin trip to the States in May. Originally, I went there for attending my younger brother’s graduation, since I’m running a web startup, I decided to take a little adventure to San Jose just being exposed by the web startup atmosphere and hopefully I will be able to find out what the magic is of San Jose. I really appreciate Ricky the CEO of crowdbooster, let us crash at his place. Being the CEO of crowdbooster which is a Y Combinator startup, Ricky is really familiar with everything that is going on right now, and thanks for him we are lucky enough to meet all the other young genius out there!
The truth about SEO is that you don’t need SEO “YET”
Back in 2 years ago when I just start this company , I was really interested in SEO. Therefore I made this site to try out all the SEO skills including building back links, friendly url, using no follow links, heading tag for important content, prevent using table layout ….. etc. I can tell you there is only one rule that never changes. That is`BACK LINKS`. It’s like when you modify a car, you change the tire, the air filter, and the minifold. You would still not feel the difference. But if you put on a turbo, I bet you can feel your car flying!!! Back links are just like the turbo for SEO if you use it in the right way.
