Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup, by John Carreyrou (@Kindle)
Finished 2018-06-10. Recommended. A brisk read, funny and maddening.

A consistent theme here is very successful old men deciding to rely too much on social proof and gut instinct over due diligence, physical evidence, and the advice of more conscientious but lower status people around them.

Also, to be frank, Stanford doesn't come off looking too great, particularly the Hoover Institution, although I guess anyone with a clue already knew that Hoover is a pernicious parasite.

Catapult Classes
"We believe in community and mentorship, in rigorous feedback and revision. We know that an inspiring live event can be just as sustaining as finishing a draft, and that writers need other writers to thrive. Think of Catapult’s writing program as an MFA program without barriers—affordable, day-job-friendly classes open to emerging and established writers.

All of our creative writing classes are taught by writers and publishing professionals at the center of literary culture. Fiction and nonfiction workshop leaders have published at least one book (or have a title under contract) or have amassed bylines in national publications. Editing and publishing classes are led by industry professionals at the height of their careers. Our instructors are not just teachers, but mentors.

Classes meet online and in-person at our NYC offices. All of our six-week workshops are intimate, ranging in size from 5 to 8 writers, and we offer a variety of generative day-long master classes and intensives focused on the practical aspects of the writing life. Long after class is complete, we promote our students' work and celebrate their successes."
