A year ago American Express OPEN Forum interviewed me about 3 things I’ve learned on my entrepreneurial journey building media company Capture Your Flag and interviewing rising entrepreneurs as part of its career documentary interview web series Capture Your Flag.

Steve Jobs’s final TV appearance at the Cupertino City Council, 6/7/11, where he discusses plans for Apple’s new headquarters amidst a broader meditation on his design philosophy, his heroes, and the future.

It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.
