Where Ideas Come From: Foursquare’s @Naveen on The Big Web Show

Foursquare co-founder Naveen Selvadurai

IN EPISODE ? 99 of The Big Web Show (“Everything Web That Matters”), Foursquare co-founder Naveen Selvadurai and I discuss mobile apps and the quantified self; the genesis of bookmarking places; creating mobile UIs in the bad old days before smartphones; how Delicious’s bookmarking helped inspire Foursquare; what was really innovative about the iPhone from a mobile developer’s perspective (it’s not what you think!); when to quit your job and start a product or service; where ideas come from; and what’s after Foursquare for him. Enjoy Naveen on The Big Web Show.
