“Perhaps this rumor started because I’ve been interviewing folks for a President/COO slot to help us keep up with the growth. I am NOT giving up my CEO slot EVER. I have a Steve Jobs/Larry Ellison approach to these things: I’m in charge. Forever. End of discussion. I’m not here to screen share.”

    We’be built a top 200 site in 30 months… in the next 30 we will be in the top 25-50 if we can stay focused and execute. It typically takes 5-10 years to build a top 50 site.
