I’m in southern Chile, and this is the view from our cabin’s porch... Big cities are great, but nature is incredibly calming 😊

Selling isn't an option, but public could make sense at some point. But even without these two, you could share profits via dividends, do stock buybacks or sell shares on secondary markets.

For startups, in most cases, equity does matter and is worth 0. In cases where it matters, it matters a lot. The big company equity is mostly used as salary compensation — in most cases, it will not make you wealthy.

People outside of the US are generally very ignorant/uneducated about this. At Doist, one of the core plans for this year is implementing a good stock options plan, which isn't easy for remote-first companies.

A few days ago, there was a lot of discussion about salaries, and not many focused on one of the most critical aspects: equity. A good base salary is great, but equity is how you become wealthy. E.g., Jeff Bezos isn't wealthy because of his salary, but because of ~4% of Amazon.

Imagine how much better off all these tech employees in San Francisco would be if their companies fully embraced remote.

A core problem for Europe is that the tech sector is underdeveloped and highly spread. E.g., $40bn+ are invested in Bay Area alone each year (much more than the whole of Europe). And there are only about 7 million people in the Bay Area...

Yes 😄, but I don’t think Twitter is the best medium to determine salary levels. E.g., something like PayScale is more representative, or looking at companies with public salary formulas (Buffer, Gitlab). The salaries I have seen here are on the very high end of the market.

Companies that aren't transitioning to paying salaries on a more global level will have a tough time competing on salaries. In other words, remote-first companies are coming after your best people 😈

I stopped reading it after he talked about how you needed to be colocated to do great work. This reminded me that maybe his learnings were not compatible with today's reality. 😊
