Fascinating to watch the #Russiagate congress hearings. Recommend it. Esp. R's trying to redefine and degrade what an "investigation" is.Hooray for @fcollective “Kindred Spirits — Our Investment In Founder Collective” by @bfeld @Lrihendry maybe google Hiroshima pictures.
This made me laugh quite a lot. @martinmignot or not :-)Hahaha spot on !

President Trump explains the sources behind wiretap claims 😭
@joshua_la2 way fast - it's like the closure of the mines but affecting everythingImportant read. Exactly why Liberal Media made Trump stronger. “The Facts are True, the News is Fake” by @nntaleb need for AI to dramatically reduce the need for humans. Radical automation is happening everywhere. The issue is the speed of change. @robzidar good question. Blindsided me @seouldan @garrytan you have no idea what you're talking about. Building tech startups is HARDThank God for Tech ! Forgot to apply for visa to @Canada , got it two minutes after applying ! Merci les Canadiens. Phew :-).Every ten year overnight startup success had nine years of eating glass where the founders wanted to quit... but didn't.

Worth reading. your brand through your physical environment - gorgeous pictures of @pillpack's office, proudly designed by… on the same note as @dafrankel ... read. Unless you are a growth investor, it's really not our job to predict the future.

@joscwhite not too bad thanks - was a slow 9:15 / 9:30 fat burner and legs felt good. Did indulge in a bath though :-) @HarryStebbings @joscwhite I got lost on my training so slightly overshot my 22 mile targetGreat storytelling insights that startups can use to vary their pitch from the usual problem / solution construct - as Startup : invest w/o seeing the P&L + hope the source code wasn't stolen + get called a pussy for not investing fast enough ;-)Black man inspires another to make it in tech, who in turn takes his son to a conference to show what's possible. M…
@timothyspringer good question - probably on a different scale :-) @runvc agreed @mikeal yeah me too but it's a lame way to wage a war of ideas. Easy target and cargo cult feel.How The Resistance shoots itself in the mouth and strengthens the very Trumpism it wants to fight by acting like bi… investors are so insanely good you want to pay them to be on your board AND give them all your equity (not). and Paris are choking, literally.

Retweeted by Fred Destin @AntoniolaReis not Russian propaganda I'm concerned about - it's whether there was collusion and deal making.New post! VC Myth #3456: “The only meeting worth having is with a partner” VC Myth #3456 - this one’s for you @cape : excellent survey by @msuster shows strong optimism about venture in the LP community
Yeah. @daniellenewnham @sarahdrinkwater @jerrycolonna happy to - sorry we missed each other today Sarah !Getting stoked for @efLDN demo day - the best thing to happen to our early stage ecosystem this decade cc @matthewclifford @Alicebentinck
Retweeted by Fred Destin @AntoniolaReis what bugs me re: Russia - all the key private companies flagged it pre election (Mandiant, Carbon Black, crowdstrike etc) @AntoniolaReis on Russia I think we'd all like to know. It's a hostile plutocratic foreign power. Not the garden variety either. @AntoniolaReis don't know enough about what he did - Just always assumed he pumps all his money into politics and media - anything illegal?
Jeff Fagnan was a key part of building the story of @Veracode from inception to $600M exit. Well deserved bro. links - America deserves to know that the president is legitimate before he issues a single new EO.
This man is an advisor to the leader of the free world. This guy, right here. #rogerstone
