Who’s Next: The founder of Del.icio.us Sits In An Eames Chair Posted January 1, 2007 by Daniel Ostroff
We are Eames Spotting in Business 2.0, the first issue of the year, 2006 — January/February, Volume 7, Number 1. It’s a good magazine, here’s this issue’s cover.
Pages 34 and 35, reproduced below, detail the story of Del.icio.us founder, Joshua Schachter, whose life was transformed when Yahoo bought his company for $30 million. See the upper left hand picture on this page–that’s what caught our eye–his picture and the caption in the table of contents, “An accidental entrepreneur ponders his next move.” Well, where does he sit when he ponders his next move? In an Eames Aluminum Group chair. Perhaps he sat in that chair when he dreamed up Del.icio.us too.
