Poll: Have you ever seriously considered launching a tech startup?

Take this quick poll from Justin James to let us know whether you have launched or have even considered launching a tech startup.

Business of Software 2012 featured presentations and workshops from some of the most successful and experienced people in the world of software startups. I attended the event last week in Boston, and it really energized me.

In my current role, I work on projects in a very startup-like environment, which is awesome. I've been involved in startups a number of times, and the environment has reminded me of the pains and the joys of the startup lifestyle.

I'm curious to know how many TechRepublic readers have ever given serious consideration to launching a tech startup. If you have, share some of your best tips in the discussion.
