1:00 Welcome everyone, I'm excited to finally have serial entrepreneur Gina Bianchini on the program. 1:45 We love MailChimp--and you will too! Sign up today and tell them TWiST sent you! 3:45 Gina, you've used MailChimp, right? 4:15 How big was Ning at its peak? 5:30 What compelled you to start a business in 2004? 9:15 Gina: By the time I left, we were adding 1 million new Ning users every 14 days. 10:30 Did you agree with the decision to make it a paid service? 12:30 What did you learn from that experience as an entrepreneur? 16:45 How does Mightybell differ from Ning? 19:00 What does Mightybell 1.0 look like? 24:00 What is a group-first social product? 25:00 Thank you to Squarespace for supporting TWiST! Everyone thank @Squarespace. 27:30 It seems like you've made a conscious change with Mightybell to be design-first. 30:45 How does the mobile experience translate to groups? 37:45 What do you think of Quora? 40:15 Gina: When a community forms using software, they rarely ever leave. 42:00 What about location-based networks? 46:30 Do women have less opportunity in the Valley today than men? 49:30 Gina: "I look forward to the day when someone doesn't think 'we need a woman, call Gina'." 50:30 What about harassment? Has that ever been an issue for you? 54:45 How is it an advantage for you, being a serial entrepreneur? 58:15 What do you worry about now that you didn't used to worry about? 59:15 Gina: Have a huge vision for your startup. 1:01:45 This has been one of the best conversations I've ever had on the program. Thank you so much, Gina. 1:02:15 Everyone follow @Mightybell. If you're an amazing developer, you might want to email firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll see you next time.
