NODE: Ryan’s first ever demo was presenting his early version of node running a IRC server at JSConf in Berlin, the demo gods taunted him, and he considered fleeing, but also got lucky, and had demo win, people in the audience connected to his simple server, were chatting and then saw it was all from the 400 lines of JS running server-side. NODE: Joyent (PaaS, IaaS) was in the audience and was like hey we want to build out our infrastructure on this, and Ryan was like well you prob shouldn’t… & they were like, no come to work for us, we’ll pay you to build it.
