Well, those exiting also made money from ads — the purchase price for their companies was at least partially about future (ad) earnings.

I’m unexpectedly bonding easily with the Stoics — “to such a person, glasses are amazing; to everyone else, a glass is just a glass, and it is half empty to boot.”
