In anticipation of the Facebook IPO this week and the thousands of young millionaires it will spawn, the runway success of the social network is a good reminder that sometimes you can get rich by starting a startup or by working at one.Not quite. David E. Weekly thinks equity is a lottery ticket. Weekly, who helped found Hacker Dojo and PBworks, wrote a guide for startup guys.
Weekly scribbled all this wisdom down because he wished someone had told him all this stuff when he was 25, when he got his start in the Internet business. Weekly also is an angel investor, so he knows both sides.
This document is the third edition, and he even got help from three attorneys. Weekly wrote the first one when he was on a plane and it got over 20,000 views in just a few days.
