He left PayPal in the spring of 2007 with the firm notion that he could build web products. For the next year he built one new web product a month. Forcing himself to create and launch an entire product in a single weekend. Some of the results were disastrous, some like his completely fabricated online dance club were surprising and hilarious. One ended up raising $1.5 M.
