This is so typical. A woman founds a cool startup. It’s the hottest thing going. Media builds her and the company up. Then, once it gets too popular, the media destroys the company over tiny, nitpicky crap. Shameful. t.co/iPbKWbfsTI

UFC tonight. Picks: Pereira (think he can pull an upset! but not likely) Zhang, easy Poirier Gutierre Hooker All favs (i think) except Pereira.
So @awilkinson is guilting me into coming to Victoria. FINE. I wanna see nature stuff and Vancouver. Will make weekend trip out of it. What's the prettiest, coolest stuff to do?
Anyone in Austin have a cool office that I can work out of from time to time? Wanna be around people I dig (vs a coworking space!).
Tinkering with Slack as a community platform. One thing I cannot figure out: how to automatically send a DM to new people as they join. You can do a bot, yes. But I want it to be a DM from me to the new member directly. Ideas?
I just don’t wanna read or talk about @elonmusk and his plans for twitter anymore. It’s a neat story. But..I just don’t give a shit anymore. I love soap operas. But ready for new stories.
Have been researching communities. Haven't found many examples of a community that members love (aka low churn) that also raised VC. Why: VC forces scale fast. For communities, that means "go make 2 good friends this week. Next week do 19. Then next month, 50" Very tough.
