This is a *big* issue for distributed teams. With 8 people in 6 states, we experienced big challenges on our team. The not-just-nuanced differences state-to-state was shocking. Definitely an opportunity for someone to build an @atrium-like experience for this. https://twitter.com/shpigford/status/1152315686158589964

News is out about @AskSecfiโ€™s $6M Series A. https://fortune.com/2019/07/19/secfi-wouter-witvoet-ipo-palantir-amazon-uber/ If youโ€™re employed at a high-growth private startup like DoorDash, Airbnb, Stripe, etc. and need liquidity for things like a home purchase, take a look. #investor

How on earth does that valuation make sense??

For the purposes of this discussion, define a social network as involving stranger interaction. By this definition: - Slack is intra-work, so wouldn't count - Email is kind of social, but there's no productivity metric - FB/Twitter/Insta are mostly entertainment-focused
What would a social network that made you more productive look like?

After a quick test, @tferriss shuttered his fan subscription program for his podcast. Back to ads! https://tim.blog/2019/07/11/why-im-stopping-the-fan-supported-podcast-experiment/ My assumption: It may be harder to convert a massive audience thatโ€™s already used to listening to an ad-supported podcast for free.
Remote people! Yes, you. Got a question for you ๐Ÿค“ What do you appreciate the most about remote work?
 
working in @lululemon pants
 
Personal hat: Freedom to work anywhere and on my own time (mostly) Company hat: Ability to recruit strong teammates from around the world
 
That it can't take communication for granted. Companies that have remote workers must remain diligent in effective communication to run efficiently. It's a net-benefit for everyone involved, especially future employees.
