Actually, when we start the off-world colonies we are going to sort individuals by temperament and send them to specific planets to be with their own types. Everyone reading this is going to Plant Memes.
Prediction: This storm will result in a bunch of ❄️ saying I’m blaming victims. Reality: Society is chaos. Many people are evil & others are severely mentally ill, so protect yourself at all times. Learn self-defense, to identify the crazies & avoid dangerous situations.
Online communities are chaos and the reality it that it is up to you to protect yourself — just like in the real world. If you rely solely or primarily on others for your safety, that’s a huge mistake in my experience. :the end:
San Francisco is 7x7 miles filled with the richest, smartest & most creative collection of individuals in the world—who can’t solve for traffic, car breakins, garbage, housing or homelessness! You expect a couple of hundreds twitter executives to solve for *speech* w/100M peeps?
Lower your expectation to “LESS FUNCTIONAL” than a major city and @Twitter seems like a massive success. Humans are often broken, illogical & cruel creatures. Social media draws the mentally ill & evil folks—& creates them.
Twitter is a tiny percentage of society and it’s total chaos, as we should expect. Twitter isn’t the problem, it’s your expectation that somehow @jack & the @Twitter team is magically going to make a 100M person digital city somehow BETTER than a 10M person, real-world city.
Having billions of people on one planet has resulted in the destruction of the environment, dictatorships & chaos Why do we think having billions of people in giant social networks or a video-sharing site would result in something better? We’re not good at scaling society.
There is a huge opportunity for a mid-sized city (maybe even in California) to create a radically pro-housing agenda to drive down the cost of living and slurp up all these remote workers. Has any city tried this? The sweet spot would be 100 miles outside of Los Angeles of SF
Congrats to the lovely people of Toronto — sincerely, enjoy it! (Your music is still wack @drake)

Most decisions in investing aren’t that hard to make for angels, the hard part is telling the founders. Imagine having to wake up one day with 100+ founders calling you & having to say “no” to two dozen folks who are desperate to make their dreams reality? It’s hard to say no.
If you’re an introverted person (@naval or @tferriss), can you imagine what this experience is like? *Exhausting* If you’re extroverted like @sacca or me? Still exhausting! Every wonder why successful angel investors quit in ~10 year? it’s physically & emotionally exhausting
Jumping to say I am absolutely an introvert who overcompensates to get along in an industry that seemingly treasures extroverts. I am uncomfortable in groups, have a hard timing meeting new people, am exhausted by social activities, and moved to the woods to avoid people.
* CORRECTION: @sacca fakes it!!!
Hypothesis: “super router” introverts tend to default to higher leverage, scaleable activities. E.g. blogging, tweeting, and building products vs. events and 1 on 1’s. As a result, people assume they’re extroverted because they’re everywhere.
You’re all of sudden unable to respond to even your friends who send you requests to collaborate —which could be amazing opportunities offered with sincere intent—and you have a profound sense of guilt your can’t give your friends the courtesy of a response!
As @Casey, described in his podcast with me, a very small percentage of folks have no boundaries & get upset at you for not putting your kid on the ground to take a selfie with them. Or they show up at your office because they have ideas they want to pitch you on THEN...
Great discussion 🌟 (14:48)
