    I Can Has Co-Founder: A Tale Of Cheezburgers And K-Pop Stars

    “Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.” – C.S. Lewis

    I first met Eric in Tokyo (where Eric was living) on the inaugural Geeks on A Plane trip over two years ago.

    We quickly connected on our shared entrepreneurial history – both of us had co-founded passionate community sites that were not born from a business plan. They developed from a personal interest on a random topic that just exploded: lolcats for Eric and K-pop for me.

    We both had experienced growing pains from trying to monetize fast-growing sites that were initially passion projects.
