Steve Newcomb (founder of Powerset -- which became the Bing search engine, and 11 other successful companies) wrote a brilliant essay about what it takes to recruit and build amazing teams.  With his new startup (famo.us) launching product in 1 week, I thought it would be useful to reshare his essay for all Founder's benefit.

I went into reading this biased by the buzzwordy title, but it is quite worth taking the time to read.  I've definitely been on the deer-in-headlights end of salary negotiation and completely agree with the sentiment.  There is clearly experience-won wisdom here.
