“I started 3 companies at the same time. Siri was my day job. I started a company called Sentient, that was my night job. And change.org was my side side project.”
“After 2 years, Apple saw Siri. Steve Jobs called our office, unannounced, after we launched a free app in the app store.”
“Timing is super important. I was doing Siri - like systems since 1993. Literally exactly half my life. If I tried to launch it as a company any sooner or later, it would not have had the success that it did.”
“I thought that social networking would take off. And that led directly to our work at Change.org.”
