Detailed Biography of Evan Williams
Entrepreneurship is a taxing and grueling career path that requires almost as much luck as catching a flash of gold in a pan. But every once in a while, an entrepreneur hones in on a great plan that changes the face of social culture. Evan Williams has done that not once, but twice as the cocreator and cofounder of both Blogger and Twitter.
Born in Clarks, Nebraska, Evan Williams appearances first came on his family’s farm, where he helped assist however he was needed. Eventually, he left the family farm, and Evan Williams appearances began taking place at Internet start up companies across the nation, including Key West, Florida, and Austin, Texas. Then Evan Williams appearances as a computer code writer took place for O’Reilly Media and freelance projects for such big names as Hewlett Packard and Intel.
In his next project, Evan Williams struck gold for the first time. Along with collaborator Meg Hourihan, Evan Williams appearances resulted in the founding of Pyra Labs, a project management software company. Almost accidentally, the company happened across the software required to launch Blogger. Google eventually bought Blogger, and Evan Williams appearances as a Person of the Year as credited by PC Magazine took place. Next came podcasting platform Odeo, and after that, Evan Williams appearances as the cofounder, board member, investor and ultimately the chief executive officer of micro blogging platform Twitter took place. In 2010, Evan Williams appearances for Twitter ceased as he stepped down to pursue other projects.
