What failed: I tried to make Mixergy.com into an invitation Web site to take on evite, and I failed. After spending lots of money and countless hours, I didn’t get the traction I expected.

What worked: The events that I organized have been successful. I’ll continue organizing them. Keep checking back here to find out about new events.

What’s new: To keep from having a big failure like this ever again, I’m going to become a learning machine. I’m going to do more interviews with Web leaders and post them here.

This has been hard for me to post on the Web, but I think it’s important to be open.
