Great review of Ian McEwan's "Machines Like Me" "[W]e worry not just what robots might do to us but what we might do to them, to say nothing of what they might do to us because of what we already do to one another" https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2019/04/22/man-woman-and-robot-in-ian-mcewans-new-novel
Have you read it? Looks great (cc @aweissman @thegothamgal )
Out next Tuesday on Kindle...pre-ordered it. I especially like the idea of "resurrecting" Turing in an alternate history of the 1980's (giving the author a great conduit for commenting on AI and man's inhumanity to man/machine)
John Pitts at Doubleday saw our Twitter convo the other day and this showed up at my office today (cc @aweissman @thegothamgal )

The engineer in me wants to solve problems. But I too have leaned that just being there and listening can help a lot. I feel like parenting is a great way to learn that lesson.

Five core jobs of a CEO: 1. Nail down strategy for company 2. Deliver capital to pursue that strategy 3. Build team to execute 4. Communicate the hell out of company strategy (internally and externally) 5. Hold people accountable. https://twitter.com/matthewlaffer/status/1115406704915681280

A wet winter filled them up. They look so much better than they did last winter
i was going to ask about that. they did look so much better. although i was bummed to see a few scooters submerged.
Oy. I love the environmental aspects of bikes and scooters but we need to figure out how to keep them out of our lawns, sidewalks, and canals.
@fredwilson @whitneymcn Happy cover Friday Better Oblivion Community Center doing the 'Mats - Can’t Hardly Wait - from a few weeks ago. Love hearing the crowd sing along to "Hurry up, hurry up, ain't you had enough of this stuff" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LIRwQCq5uxY

@fredwilson @whitneymcn Good morning. Feels to me like a Grateful Dead morning. Bird Song from 1990, with Branford Marsalis on sax adding beautiful texture to the song (and band) https://soundcloud.com/gratefuldead/bird-song-3-29-1990-nassau-colisuem-uniondale-ny
The reason I can't go to Dead shows (or whatever they call the successor groups) is nobody can sing these songs like Jerry did. They can come close on the guitar, but the voice - nope. https://soundcloud.com/gratefuldead/sugaree

Or better yet, were allowed to opt out of the school shoe contracts and negotiate their own?
But what if players also got 20% of shoe contracts?
My son and I just did some math. If the NCAA paid 20% of it's annual NCAA Tournament broadcast revenues pro-rata to every D1 college basketball player on a team roster, each player would make something like $40k a year.
I think it’s perfect that the lunatics wrecking Twitter are suing Twitter. I guess the Jack podcast tour did not do the trick. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1107817082723450880
and perfect that your anti twitter rants are on twitter.

no different than startups except the transparency about what worked and what did not
i think the one difference is retail holding bag versus accredited (startup investing) ...and maybe why seeing your startups quoted price all day does not bring out the best in people...
I agree with the latter. Not sure about the former
