Muck9, the Inside Joke, at Austin Startup Week

By Larry Chiang

I wanted this post to be super creepers.

#Megan
#Elizabeth.

At the awesome MTSC party #networkMcCombs event during ASW13 (Austin Startup Week 2013) there were some awesome inside jokes.

Muck9.

It’s funny because at an event where people sell you ideas that make you confused, Muck9 makes you laugh and say “Really?!”

It seems like a joke because it is
Mexican
Underground
Credit
Knowledge
9

I set up the pitch to be:
Do you eat out a lot?
I do and I meet Mexican people who bus tables
So I creepily hand them my duck9 business card

And ask them to put my magnet up so I can help them with their FICO score

Here is how the joke of Muck9 can help you get a job at ASW13

-1- Doing something real and small leads to something like a job offer

It is hard to get a job.

Having a job, is like asking for a loan when you do not need the money. Here is how to do something small like a college-aged “Lemonade Stand” that leads into a job offer

Pay attention to the “engineer up a tidal wave of momentum”

If you are like Elizabeth and Megan, then you’re gonna need a mentor

-3- Get a blog where you do not even need to say anything

You can simple ask questions and regurgitate what already exists

If people hate your opinion, then cite as source. If they love your blog, you already gave credit and some of the credit lands on you.
