Here are some of the pictures that I took and notable quotes from The Naked Truth event in Seattle on July 9, 2009. The event was held by Redfin, Madrona, Fenwick & West and Square 1 Bank.
“what’s the worst kind of failure? one that takes a long time and costs alot of money” (via jtgameover)
“the idea that you cannot build an important tech company outside of Silicon Valley is a crock of shit.” (via Fred Wilson)
forget the money, just sell yourself like YouTube did before you ever make any money. Twitter is going to sell for $2 billion to Microsoft or Google by the end of the year, and they’re going to have absolutely no revenue whatsoever.

There’s a lot more commentary out there (mainly Twitter) and video of the event will be posted on Seattle 2.0 later.
