    For those of yo who don't know Zynga is a company which brough Mafia Wars and Poker to facebook. It reported around 100 million USD earnings in its last earning report. How did they do it? BH way of course!

    As it should.

    My inspiration nearly always comes from something that is already being done. Goes back to the ole' saying: Nothing new under the sun.

    I knew that i wanted to control my destiny, so I knew I needed revenues, right, fucking, now. Like I needed revenues now. So I funded the company myself but I did every horrible thing in the book to, just to get revenues right away. I mean we gave our users poker chips if they downloaded this zwinky toolbar which was like, I dont know, I downloaded it once and couldn't get rid of it. *laughs* We did anything possible just to just get revenues so that we could grow and be a real business...So control your destiny. So that was a big lesson, controlling your business. So by the time we raised money we were profitable.
