Bevan had a few interesting remarks on tech start ups and what goes into starting up a company and maintaining dominance. Real Clear Politics started in 2000 and weathered the tech bubble burst. But just how?
"We turned Real Clear Politics into a lean, mean, machine," Bevan said. Bevan wakes up at 3:30 am every morning to go looking for good articles to include and to keep up to date before the rest of the country has risen. He went on to describe how unlike some of the other people during the tech bubble, he avoided venture capital money or hiring lots of additional people. Bevan insisted on specializing his Web site, which has since grown to over twenty employees and three sister sites, devoted to world politics, markets, and sports.
