Hear from Mashable’s Main Man

Mashable is the third biggest blog on the Web, depending on who you ask, says Pete Cashmore, the site’s founder and CEO.

Cashmore, speaking from Aberdeen, Scotland (a city in the far north of the country) also says the Web is a meritocracy, and that success is available to those who work hard–a point that’s tough to refute, but somewhat maddening. The fact is lots of people work hard, on the Web and elsewhere, but still fail to achieve what might be commonly referred to as success.



About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
