Think C.K. is awesome?
Vouch for them.

Brian Abent
We worked together  •  Head of Product, Ceros.com
C.K. likes to get shit done.
Mark Jeffrey
Founder / CEO Guardian Circle. Two exits, two in motion, one flop. Author, eight books.
Jason Ball
They're my friends  •  Mentor, Seedcamp and Managing Director, Qualcomm Ventures Europe, Qualcomm.
CK starts with a handful of snow, then keeps working it and rolling it, until it's something huge. I think that defines entrepreneurship. He ... started startup life working with Jason Calacanis at weblogs as a blogger, moved to AOL when that sold to re-launch Netscape, then grew into to Mahalo. Ultimately Mahalo didn't pan out, but it was a big company, with big name investors when in reality, CK started as a part time blogger at Weblogs. Start small, finish big. It's a similar story at Chaotic Moon, but with a great exit at the end. Whatever he's doing now, I know will follow the same trajectory - start small, finish big.
Andrew Busey

I am not a fan of this process.
