Stalin’s Moustache, Hitler’s Moustache - & Trump’s Toupet will all star in the movie https://t.co/I3Gu2pq5q3 @venkatkrovi @thomask @eportnoy @paulg don't think anyone means to be a Jerk - but commit the "sin of inattention" - same result. @ingridlunden in other words - AWS is more sustainable than the businesses that run on it. HSBC didn't die in 2008 either :-) @ingridlunden with next virtualisation and containers etc we're moving away from this issue + AWS is not going anywhereThinking of @ParseIt shutdown and how right @sravish was to focus @Kinvey on the harder issues of enterprise mBaaS @ingridlunden agreed ! Look, it's not like AWS is shutting down :-)Remember being on a VC panel in 2002 where message was "ecommerce is done - eBay, Amazon have invented it all" - ha! https://t.co/wW56WYHMDmIf men interacted with everybody they way they interact with women on social media https://t.co/y2Ggjrqx9Y
Retweeted by Fred DestinThe @ParseIt shutdown perfectly summarised ;-) https://t.co/qk6l2EQBDKPretty awesome endorsement for the hands-on startup building work of @thomask and @angelpad : https://t.co/GWgQCPSElN @ingridlunden @matthausk have to assume @parseit failed as a business line to scale or facebook bungled team integration and team split @niraj @johnhenderson whole point of APX is that you can assemble services on the fly focusing in core skills - mBaaS no different no ?

Are you really going to nominate this deranged media clown ? https://t.co/GpKkOz0wur @AlanPearlstein @ganeumann @eportnoy empathy is lost by some in the grind of non-stop meetings, and some just never cared. @AlanPearlstein @ganeumann @eportnoy it's gotten much better since I wrote this but still an issue - https://t.co/fKYLRlPKsq @eportnoy great post. To the heart of the matter :-) @marxculture @OliBarrett @eileentso @H4ryB @paul_clarke mos def! @andreasklinger @eportnoy Spoken like a true growth hacker :-). I don't know the process solution to email overload when you're a VC. @andreasklinger @eportnoy checking email means you're not "fully present" and tells the Entrepreneur "you're not important to me". @neilswmurray @ingridlunden also US investors have more appetite for high growth / high loss stocks so builds a stronger investor book @neilswmurray @ingridlunden dual listings are common when you see strong demand domestically but want to access a deeper (US) market tooEvery #VC should print and frame this post from @eportnoy and remember who and what we work for - https://t.co/wtPC0ArTXT @ivanfarneti @piadiri dude had a massive shovel @ealexhudson yes, efficient meeting :-).@wilg @robinwauters we now also have "tinder for finding a job" @JobToday_UK as expertly covered by @tech_eu :-) https://t.co/7LNnavIVloExceptional.
