艾伦·沙夫(Alan Schaaf)名言

Imgur is all about images, some of which may be photos but don't have to be.

Imgur是关于图像的,其中一些可能是照片,但不一定是。

I'm the type of manager who doesn't really like the word 'manage.' Nor do I really like the word 'boss.' I like to look at myself as more as a leader.

我是那种不喜欢“管理”这个词的经理,也不喜欢“老板”这个词,我更喜欢把自己看作一个领导者。

When I was in high school and college, I'd always been into websites, and when you'd read about sites and the companies and people behind them, they were always in Silicon Valley. This one's in Mountain View, this one's in Palo Alto. They're all right here. I knew I wanted to move out here, whether it was to work at Google or some other company.

当我在高中和大学的时候,我总是对网站感兴趣,当你读到关于网站以及网站背后的公司和人的信息时,他们总是在硅谷。这个在山景城,这个在帕洛阿尔托。他们都在这里。我知道我想搬到这里,不管是在谷歌还是其他公司工作。

When I was a student, I was working at the technology call center, where students call in if they can't get their email to work or something. A minimum-wage kind of job.

当我还是个学生的时候,我在技术呼叫中心工作,那里的学生如果不能让他们的电子邮件工作或什么的话就会打电话来。最低工资的工作。

I'm probably most proud of the fact that we are bootstrapped and that we are able to do not just the typical Silicon Valley startup thing. We are basically throwing away all the typical conventions of other startups.

我可能最自豪的是,我们是自举的,我们能够做的不仅仅是典型的硅谷创业的事情。我们基本上抛弃了其他初创公司的所有典型惯例。

艾伦·沙夫

Being bootstrapped is great. You own 100 percent of it. But the downside is that you aren't able to move as fast as you want.

自举是伟大的。你拥有100%的股份。但缺点是你不能像你想的那样快速移动。

We've talked with over a dozen VCs and angel investors over the years. But we've never clicked with any of them until Andreessen. During our initial meeting, we were bouncing ideas around about where Imgur could go.

多年来,我们与十几家风投和天使投资人进行了交谈。但在安德烈·埃森之前,我们从来没有和他们中的任何一个打过交道。在我们的初次会面中,我们就Imgur可以去哪里交换意见。

艾伦·沙夫

In the early days, it was enough for Imgur to have a team that was focused on building product and engineering. But I realized early on if we were going to be successful, we needed someone who would be a bridge between the company and community.

在早期,Imgur拥有一支专注于构建产品和工程的团队就足够了。但我很早就意识到,如果我们要取得成功,我们需要一个能在公司和社区之间架起桥梁的人。
