I'm a *very* dangerous Scrabble player. Also, I created Thesis—software you can use to build a killer website. Good times.

Trump has predicted the future with alarming precision in quite a few tweets from 2011-2014.

Why do people love internet companies so much more than telcos? Why is no/low-competition in telco space evil and low-competition in tech fine? Are telcos really so evil, and tech cos really so righteous? I'd accept "both are very evil" as acceptable answers.

Net Neutrality is a classic example of something that sounds good on its face and thus requires WAY more effort to paint a clear picture of what’s going on. “Progressive” is another one.

Soon, businesses won’t have a choice—convert sites to AMP, or suffer in search anonymity. There are so many content ownership concerns with AMP...

It’s not possible to build new in Austin for cheaper than used (not at the level we’re talking about). My neighbors paid $1M over “comparables.” I’ll be quite interested to see how your journey progresses.

To get a result you or I would be truly happy with is likely a 2.5 year commitment while paying the highest possible market rate for construction.

You gonna hire an architect + contracting firm and do the whole thing? My neighbors just did. This is their 3rd time. They ran the most organized job I’ve ever seen. (Most people are not ready for the 100% time + responsibility requirements of building.)

I'm intrigued, but let's start with handing them over all the leadership positions in journalism, academia, and the DNC as kind of a trial run.

Let’s lighten this mood a bit... Here’s my daughter before dance class today, followed by a live action shot of Saturday night fever 😂

Schumer, Pelosi going for 'quiet' DACA amnesty. Don't want to draw too much attention from voters! (Must be because amnesty is so popular.)

Sorry to hear it, man. I actually feel fortunate we have our furry friends to teach us these tough lessons. Savage as it may be, it’ll be instructive for tougher times in the future.

Whether it’s a computer or a dog or a human, things just get weird when the power supply shuts off. You can’t live a full life without getting your Old Yeller merit badge, though.

You’ve got a lifetime’s worth of experiences and emotions, and then boom—the central figure of these things is gone. I feel so sad for my mom today because I know she’s feeling what I’m feeling, only it’s a million times more acute. I love you, Mom!

I watched her journey end, and I was simultaneously aware of the gravity of the closure but also the enduring nature of our shared experiences. For some reason, it leaves me SO uneasy to witness and feel all these things at the same time.

I could see she was gone. It was over. But I felt so strange (and still do) because I saw that dog’s entire life trajectory. The energy of her life is somehow infused in our minds, our memories, and even our thoughts as we reflect on her journey today.
