What Are The Limits of Tolerance?

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 15:33:44 +0000

I’ve had an emotionally challenging morning so far. I woke up too early and was deeply agitated. I tried to get rolling, couldn’t, and went back to bed. But I wasn’t able to fall asleep and my brain kept cycling on all the political chaos and societal hatred that is going on. I’ve tried to compartmentalize...

Book: Option B

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 15:46:39 +0000

I read Sheryl Sandberg and Adam Grant’s book Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy a few weeks ago. It’s a must read for every human on this planet. Some of you know that I’m a huge fan of Adam Grant. His book Give and Take: Why Helping Others Drives Our Success is a...

Back From My Blogging Break

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 13:36:30 +0000

I took the last two weeks off from blogging. It was a nice vacation. While I try to blog every day, I don’t have a daily ritual like Fred Wilson does. Fred and I have talked about this a few times – for him, it is meditation, discipline, and ritual. I’ll let him say it...

Book: The Red Web: The Struggle Between Russia’s Digital Dictators and the New Online Revolutionaries

Mon, 31 Jul 2017 16:54:15 +0000

The Red Web: The Struggle Between Russia’s Digital Dictators and the New Online Revolutionaries was one of two books I read this weekend (the other was Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness). It was outstanding. I made it the August book club book for my dad and my brother. And then, this morning, I woke up...

Total Failure at Summer Maker Mode

Fri, 28 Jul 2017 16:31:34 +0000

On May 24th, I wrote a post titled Shifting To Maker Mode For The Summer. I had full intentions of making this shift around Memorial Day and sustaining it until Labor Day. I have completely failed at this. While I’m managed to stay off social media and read a lot more than watch TV, I massively...

Money Is A Consensual Hallucination

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 13:33:48 +0000

My favorite Onion article of all time (from 2010) is U.S. Economy Grinds To Halt As Nation Realizes Money Just A Symbolic, Mutually Shared Illusion. It starts off with some Bernanke brilliance. “Though raising interest rates is unlikely at the moment, the Fed will of course act appropriately if we…if we…” said Bernanke, who then paused for...

The Center For American Entrepreneurship

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 14:29:33 +0000

A new non-profit organization, the Center for American Entrepreneurship, launched yesterday. While there are lots of non-profits supporting entrepreneurship, CAE is organized around the idea of engaging and educating policymakers in Washington and at state and local levels across the nation, regarding the critical importance of entrepreneurs and startups to innovation. I met the John Dearie...

The Pessimists’ Future

Mon, 24 Jul 2017 16:09:31 +0000

An amazing book. But a dark, dark future. Or not, depending on whether or not you believe we are actually living in a computer simulation already.

Contentment

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 16:34:22 +0000

Amy and I were at a delightful dinner with friends (new and old) last night who are deeply involved in Naropa. After a very long couple of days where I was very tired, it was nice to sit in a cozy house, eat home cooked food, and just talk about life. Near the end of...

Legitimate Front’s She on Rock Band

Tue, 18 Jul 2017 18:17:25 +0000

Readers of this blog likely know that my partners Jason and Ryan have a band called Legitimate Front. You also probably know I’m on the board of Defy Ventures. And it’s likely you know that we are investors in Harmonix. When you mix all three, you get a new DLC for Rock Band from Legitimate...
