Relentlessly resourceful

by

Paul Graham says that startup founders should be relentlessly resourceful. Well, the other day I needed a charger for my Sony PRS505, which was so empty that the USB plug wouldn’t charge it.

We went through a big box of charges and none matched the voltage of the ebook reader. Well, there was one that matched it, but I needed a car to plug it in.

In the box there was also a 12V charger. I grew up with McGyver, so a couple of wires and some tape latter I got it charging.

Relentlessly resourceful!
