Cheezburger skunkworks fails to succeed, Huh tells AdAge

Celebrity webpreneur Ben Huh shared a few thoughts on the crazy success of Cheezburger, Roflrazzi and other Web hits from his Seattle media venture, in this AdAge Q&A appearing today.

In my favorite part, Huh said his company isn’t afraid to fail – you’ve got to take chances and try new things to succeed:

“We have lots of fails. I call our new blog-development team the “Skunkworks” not because it’s secretive but because most of our ideas stink.”
