I just got back from Startup School at Stanford. StartupSchool is a one-day bootcamp where founders, VCs, lawyers, and visionaries get together to present an intense "here's how to do it" to the mostly techie attendees. A lot of practical advice and wisdom, along with some funny stories.
My first writeups of the presentations are now up. See my writeups for the presentations by:
Joshua Schachter (del.icio.us, memepool)
Paul Graham (YCombinator)

If you're interested in creating a startup, or want to know more about how they work, I highly recommend this event. I expect there will be another one this time next year. Check the Startup School site for details.
