@jrichlive  Sometimes the best move when you “know” the right answer is to say and do nothing. You don’t have to opine on everything. Teams sort things out. Focus on what’s critical.

Small silver lining and of course not reported in the press but ~15% of GOP didn’t vote for HeWhoShallNotBeNamed in NH, despite being an incumbent president. So at least a chance they break left. 🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼

Super happy that @benthompson  at @stratechery  has launched his daily update as a Podcast. It's my must read every day, but sadly in email sometimes I skip in favor of the 999 other unread emails. Podcast on the drive home FTW

Back from my 4-month, forced hiatus. My interview with Meg Whitman from the #UpfrontSummit . A full write-up plus some video

If you watched the edited video you owe it to yourself to watch this fuller version. Whoever on the left edited it to make her look bad should be ashamed - whatever your climate goals are. Viewed in the full light she is actually very reasonable & respectful

1. Being extremely successful requires luck, no doubt. But the harder you work, the luckier you get.

Such stupid shit from @nytimes  editorial board. Hard to defend you from far right when you’re this dumb. No, a junior employee who works for top consulting firm doesn’t have to “explain himself.” What standards you set for future ?‍♂️

Ageism is rampant in our industry by founders and funders alike. We need to reject it with every form of bias

1/ Say “no” with humility and empathy. It’s the hardest thing somebody raising capital with existential fears ever has to hear
