RIP to my friend, colleague, and AI visionary Nils Nilsson. Your work on the A* algorithm has improved countless lives (this is how we find the shortest path from A to B). I will always remember your work, but even more importantly your kindness.

How to sell me a SaaS product: 1. I identify a need and contact you. 2. Referral from someone I trust. 3. Employee has used in previous job. There is no 4.

Maybe we should also think about how we got to a place where student loan debt is a national crisis instead of just pumping more money into the same system

Inventor of the Dishwasher: I HAVE CREATED SOMETHING THAT WILL MAKE ALL YOUR LIVES EASIER. Humanity: WHOA. So we just put dirty dishes in and it cleans them? IoDW: Um, no. You need to wash them first. H: Uh... IoDW: Not thoroughly. Just, like, what you'd do if you were drunk.

If you are about to dump all of your pre-IPO shares you should not be allowed to say “Proud investor! Just getting started.”

Cutting bad people out of your life is so great. A weight immediately lifts. If you think someone might be bad for you, they are

This is the crux of the argument, but seems like this is rarely the case. Looking at startup market adoption is not enough in my experience. Investors must have vision for what founders and products can truly make it in enterprise

I don’t really believe in Studio models, as they are intended. I would guess that several Atomic cos will succeed through sheer force of Jack being a great founder, but only as many as he can have substantial involvement in. But that’s just a guess :)

Uber is a good example but maybe moreso if they had taught those drivers how to drive

Any examples of unicorn-level marketplaces that had to build a lot of their own supply to win?

Not helpful enough haha 😄 How is this world’s first and what does it add? Google cal surely was intended for personal & work use. I don’t think it caught on for work until 5+ yrs after launch
