Robert F. Smith opposed eliminating the unfair, market-distorting carried-interest loophole. He made a fortune off that preferential tax rate, and used a tiny portion of that fortune to make himself look magnanimous. https://twitter.com/anandwrites/status/1130270081978654721?s=21

Trying to maintain a conversation via Gchat on an airplane with spotty wifi must be exactly what it felt like corresponding cross country in the 1800s.
The cloud is far larger than we realize because of the amount of "non-consumption" in most software categories due to the cost and complexity of prior solutions. Simplicity 10X's these markets.
My Gmail is either punking me with this suggested email subject, or Gmail is trying to give me very strong feedback about my writing style.
If you read one thing about the disruption playing out in enterprise software today, let it be this. https://twitter.com/stratechery/status/1123196230975115266
As a startup, it’s better to do one thing well and be a killer app searching for its platform, than do everything well and be a platform searching for its killer app.
If I gave you a nickel every time I heard "freemium will never work in the enterprise" you could be the largest shareholder of Zoom and Slack.
The enterprise software market is fundamentally different today. Here are some thoughts on what’s happening and what’s to come. https://twitter.com/techcrunch/status/1121818408155328516
“Consumerization of IT” was merely a hypothesis a decade ago, and now it’s radically changed the enterprise software landscape forever. Congrats to @SlackHQ and @stewart and team on the IPO filing!
If you aren’t working out of a garage right now you might want to rethink your growth strategy. https://twitter.com/jonerlichman/status/1119656467487973376
There's still so much disruption left in enterprise software. The cloud changed everything, and we're only in the earliest innings of its adoption.
We're seeing an explosion of enterprise software successes because markets are often 10X larger when they move from legacy to the cloud: global scale instantly, billions of potential users, exponential growth in devices, completely new work styles. This is just the start.
Congrats Zoom on the incredible IPO. An amazing example of a best-of-breed cloud platform with a focused mission, great technology, and brilliantly simple business model that scales.

If anyone ever tells you “it just can’t be done,” every once in a while they’re actually right. And you just shouldn’t do it. https://twitter.com/stevekovach/status/1118571414934753280
Two phones for the price of one, plus one that has a strobe feature. This is a steal. https://twitter.com/stevekovach/status/1118571414934753280

Lessons from PagerDuty on how to build a $3B+ company: ✅ Focus on a big, annoying pain that many have ✅ Build what others call a “feature” to solve that better than anyone else ✅ Methodically evolve that “feature” into a platform that creates a market

The future of enterprise software is integration and interoperability between clouds. Exciting to see @gsuite continue to push in this direction. https://twitter.com/box/status/1116009194556149760

Anytime someone says “that problem has been solved,” remember Slack and Zoom have created ~$20B in value in categories most wrote off as finished.
A few takeaways after a week on the road meeting enterprises: * Best-of-Breed IT gaining steam vs. monolithic solutions🚄 * Regulated industries finally moving to cloud ☁️ * Cloud Infrastructure wars are only beginning ⚔️ * Enterprises want more interoperability from vendors 🧩
Thank you Abiarsi. I myself am not currently in the market for a $360M plane, but given this attractive offer I'm retweeting in case someone else is interested. https://twitter.com/abiarsif/status/1113912967664291840
