Saw this on digg and it's a really great read I'm sure you'll all get something out of it.

Don't focus on getting acquired.
Instead, focus on the user.
Ignoring limitations lets you tackle problems from a different angle.
Don't be afraid to tackle the giants.
Pay attention to the details.
Have a really understanding spouse.

I don't understand how they can say they weren't focused on getting purchased by Google. They moved to Mountain View, California to develop Zentar... that seems like focusing on getting purchased. Either that or they like Mountain View a lot.

If you don't have an enemy it is really hard to get traffic on your site :P
