This week's failure to communicate, from Path, was hardly a unique event. Companies--especially fast-moving startups--screw up all the time. The issue is how they react to their errors. Can Path recover, as Facebook and Google have from their privacy flaps, or will this flub hurt the company over the long term?
And how can you prepare for your own inevitable, and public, failures, if you're running your own company?
I have two guests today well-versed in the art of failure and graceful recovery:Brooke Hammerling, founder of Brew Media Relations, and Owen Thomas, the founding editor of The Daily Dot
