John McDowall

Hello. My name is John McDowall.

Welcome to my infrequently updated Journal. I'm a Scottish ex-patriot who used to be the CTO at a couple of different startups, and now I'm an independant consultant working out of Vancouver, Canada. Below you'll find my last five recent Articles. If you're looking for more, check out the Archive.

If you like to read, I wrote a book which is a collection of interviews with Startup founders called How Products Get Started.
