    I'm 5 seconds in the first video and I'm already depressed... 37 degrees while I'm sat in a building my boss is too cheap to heat. Fucking hell...

    But, fucking hell. He could not have fucked that up more if he tried. What a shame, it must have taken months to get him to this point.

    This kids is why you don't lie to grow a name... Just be honest, saying we are new and we don't have many customers/clients/partners is perfectly ok.

    It took an entire team 500 hours to build an app, but 1 short interview to destroy it all.

    Thats why you hire PR people and keep programmers hidden in a cupboard or something.

    Mark Zuckerbergs early interviews are just as bad to watch.
