The Making of Fark.com
Drew Curtis, creator of the wildly successful humor site, Fark.com, is the consummate entrepreneur. He’s got contagious passion, knows no boundaries, is wicked smart, all while staying true to himself.
In 1999, Drew was inspired by the idea of sharing funny and weird news stories with anyone interested – not only did people take notice, but many started to contribute their own funnies. Today, with only eight full-time employees, Fark is one of the most recognized media properties on the web; their secret – organic growth. Since the beginning, Drew set out to build something for himself. In the process, he has figured out what the traditional media players haven’t – he describes it here.
