Trump calls BuzzFeed a “failing pile of garbage” which is wildly unfair as we are a succeeding pile of garbage.

Putting famous quotes on magnets, cups (& twitter) seems to be the best way to extract all wisdom and poetry from them @Jason i had same question - there is a why here I just cannot see itAssuming he's not stupid, and assuming he's had the intel briefs, the question here is : why tweet this ? https://t.co/28mIeHiHwo"If two smart and logical people disagree, it's probably because they are acting on different information" - Nice one from @agentbillo

My feed is flooded today by people whose bios have patriotic acronyms and symbols. Their focus: exonerate Russia and question the CIA.
Retweeted by Fred DestinGuys I'll say that we've learned something when we start calling "fake news" propaganda. "Fake news"? Come on, media. Grow up a little.

Worth repeating: nothing more dangerous for a startup than a VC who lets fear into the boardroom when things get tough. Need steady hands.Much respect to @sravish and team @kinvey for grinding it to success, #bostonstrong (via @galenmoore) https://t.co/o2FbmpP6sa

Being upset at tech for taking jobs away is futile. But being oblivious about the impending job destructions is naively optimistic too. @mr_james_c I think tech just ... is. Just like gravity. Question is now how we reshape society around it. @mr_james_c yes I know but the statistics are staggering and they align with my everyday experience (even inside startups!!)
