On private joys of ownership

[tweetmeme]

One of the biggest surprises of the startup experience so far has been the pleasure of owning. I am not talking about owning a multi-million dollar company or any company for that matter. I am talking simply about making something when there was nothing there before and putting your name on it. It’s not a matter of perceived or objective or any other type of value that can be put on the the thing you are making, it’s just a private joy of building, identifying with and taking pride in what you’ve build.

I am not a stellar programmer, and I have not written that much code in my lifetime.  But even when I did write something it was never my own.  And now, for the first time, what I write is mine, and that is somehow a very different experience.
