Jones gets inspiration from watching flicks in his 20-seat home theater.
Many entrepreneurs describe their great ideas as a lightning bolt of inspiration, but to hear Jones tell it, he's prone to frequent thunderstorms. "All of a sudden I can't sleep, and I have all these ideas that are unrelated to each other," he describes. "I just spew them on the page, and it feels like I'm channeling from somewhere else."
