Today at TechCrunch Disrupt 2012 in San Francisco, Jack Dorsey took the stage to give us a 10-minute run-through of how he got to where he is today. I’m not sure that there’s enough time in the day to accurately portray the adventures Dorsey have experienced, but he certainly tried.
As you know, Jack Dorsey co-founded Twitter and also Square, the payment processing solution that you can find in Apple stores and festivals everywhere.
Dorsey discussed his history and talked a bit about the founding of companies, saying that “Companies have multiple founding moments,” and considers Dick Costolo, current CEO of Twitter, to be a founding member. Similarly, he considers Keith Rabois to be a founder of Square, as well.
His thoughts are interesting ones, and clearly come from the perspective of pushing innovation. It’s nice to know that one of the original founders of a massive network and product like Twitter is willing to open its arms to change.
For those who think that Twitter might have some differing opinions on where to move forward, it seems like Dorsey has put some of that to rest…at least from his perspective. It will be interesting to see if we can find out how Dorsey splits his time between Twitter and Square these days.
