Pando: The most patient man in Silicon Valley
Too much in Silicon Valley revolves around hyperspeed. Everything in the startup world is an emergency that needs to be solved in an all-nighter last night, if you allow it to be. The genius in Ravikant’s AngelList is its measured, methodical, brick-by-brick pace to build a software platform to replace, save, wreck, or augment – the verb depends on your point of view – a business that everyone insisted for decades was incurably human, boutique and done with deeply-trusted partnerships and eye-to-eye handshake deals. //&! bit.ly/1LS4aVg - The “The old Series A investor who put in $2 million and really cared and had resources is dead.” [...] “A seed fund doesn’t have the resources that a Kleiner Perkins or a Benchmark had,” [ Incubators are only 3 months long ] AngelList syndicate leads help, but they don’t care enough to help [as classic VC's] [...] Entrepreneurs have to stitch it together themselves.”

Zumper: One-Third Of San Francisco’s Rent Is Attributable To VC Funding | TechCrunch

Since 2010, rents have risen by 40%, and eviction rates have risen by 38%—two rapid changes that have had very visual consequences all across the city. Much of SoMa, for instance, looks like an elephant graveyard. Sidewalks look like the surface of the moon; alleys are littered with broken glass; and streets are strewn with sleeping persons and human shit. All of this can be observed from in the shade of the brand-new office buildings and luxury condos that now line the streets everywhere east of 4th Street. [...] those who move to San Francisco and don’t engage with the community dilute and adulterate San Francisco’s sense of character.

Survivors | Bothsides of the Table
Failure. To most people it smells. People are afraid of it. It’s like cancer or divorce. When you have it you find you who your true friends are because they’re the ones who double down on helping, on being available, on listening, on understanding. Most people run from failure or disease because they’re hard to handle. Hard to know how to deal with. Awkward. But I am attracted to those who have had severe set-backs in life because it tells you something about the mettle of the person with whom you’re dealing. It reminds me of a famous quote in one of my favorite novel’s “Damage” by Josephine Hart “Damaged people are dangerous. They know they can survive.” [...] closed up shop at the very first hurdle. I wouldn’t work with him again. [...] Honor is what I’m looking for. How you failed is significantly more important than if you failed.

Ann Summers boss on overcoming arrests, threats and shyness | Guardian Small Business Network | The Guardian
Is there anything you would have done differently? I would have networked my socks off when I was first starting out. I think the problem for women is that we’re so focused on what we want that we don’t have time for flashy lunches and golf days. Men do it so well – they network and build amazing contacts. I think, certainly in my case, I didn’t recognise the value of it at the time because, when I was younger, I was focused on building the business. I came to it quite late – but it’s at the beginning that you need it.

A Dozen Things I’ve Learned From Chris Sacca About Venture Capital | 25iq
“Good investors are in the service business.” “There are angels who have 75 companies and don’t call any of them ever.” [...] “Any VC will tell you where they really make their money is on following on, it’s on doubling down into the winners. The things that are growing geometrically in terms of users, revenue that kind of stuff.” [...] “I do try to focus a lot on the entrepreneur as a person, I think that has fallen out of the equation recently…. look for driven people.” [ execution, passion, vision, mission, alignment ] [...] “Companies don’t succeed, when there’s a lot of chiefs and no Indians.” [...] “Create value before you ask for value back.” [...] “It’s people with these broader life experiences who have balanced relationships who come up with the cool shit.”

Tech’s Privilege Barrier — The Information
Behind the articles we write about hot startups and funding rounds is a truth that needs a headline of its own: The technology industry is not as meritocratic as it may seem. For this column, I am focusing specifically on entrepreneurs, the people who found companies and beat the odds to turn them into something big. By many measures, the industry is incredibly fair with relatively few barriers to entry. You could, in theory, build the next Snapchat or WhatsApp with a good idea, a laptop and barely any capital. The reality is a little different. Rags to riches tales (like Steve Jobs or WhatsApp’s Jan Koum) get a lot of attention and certainly exist. But the “anyone can make something of himself” narrative ignores the fact that to go from idea to successful company you need a lot of other ingredients, ingredients where privilege helps a lot.

(18) If you need to learn "argue intelligently", you... - Nassim Nicholas Taleb
If you need to learn "argue intelligently", you don't have a real argument; if you need to "promote", you don't have anything to sell; if you need to network you don't have anything to offer; if you need to prepare for a lecture, you don't have anything to lecture about; and if you need to learn how to "improve your style" you don't have anything to write about. Truth is direct; it screams and doesn't meander. [Please note the difference between NEED TO and WANT TO before commenting. Some commentators here have made mistakes.]

The Facebook Effect (On Real Estate Prices) | TechCrunch
The Wall Street Journal had a story on this yesterday: space is so tight that tech companies are paying north of $90 a square foot in Mountain View. Those are Manhattan skyscraper prices for 1980s-era suburban office parks. It is like running the entire industry on the physical equivalent of MS-DOS. You can either scale the physical infrastructure of the region or you can move the jobs. I favor doing both, but it seems obvious that the world is on an inexorable path towards mass urbanization and that the type of creative and collaborative work done in the industry today favors density. The younger generation in tech understands that in a knowledge-based economy, the value of what is created in Silicon Valley both economically and culturally is in the network. It depends upon who we can bring and include here — not in physical assets like a piece of land or a home. [...] elastic housing supply is supportive of economic growth, especially urban/metropolitan areas of dense eco activity

Because some funds raised itself by VC's are just 200-500m - covering an expected distance of 5 years with an additional 5 years or more till maturation of investments done with said fund, more even longer like +10 years. Some even are not cashing out during an IPO of said investment, bc history/data has shown that the return is of the long-term greater past the IPO compared to investment point to IPO. // "“Entrepreneurs should focus on investors that deliver value to them,” said Jeff Clavier, managing partner of venture firm SoftTech VC. “When you crowd out experience just to get an SPV going, then that’s a problem.” // ie a16z which is not ur usual VC shop but more like a services shop 2 support & put said investment on a fast track ie HR & Ops.

Why digital media conferences are a waste of time for everybody involved | PandoDaily
This gets to the heart of why so many media conferences are a waste of time: Nobody knows anything, and the people who do know something probably won’t deliver a speech about it at a conference. That’s not necessarily because they don’t want to reveal their secrets. After all, execution — particularly in Buzzfeed’s case — is everything. They’re simply too busy building the future of journalism to sit around talking about it. [ #execution ] [...] So next time you feel compelled to go to some “Future of Media” conference, just watch this three minute video instead. It’s no less profound, and it will save you both hundreds of dollars and the wasted hours of networking with people who can’t really help you. After all, if they were truly shaping the future of media why would they be there instead of working? [ # make so much noise (so good) they can't ignore you ]

How Much Does It Cost to Be Ambassador to Hungary? - Bloomberg View
n.pr/1AfA3NV &! The corruption here is multilayered. There is the corruption of governance and diplomacy, in which ambassadorships are sold to the highest bidder. And then there is a more subtle form of corruption, in which the people’s representatives are made to feel as if they must provide cover for the corrupt practices of the executive branch. Strangely enough, another of the Obama administration’s nominees for a crucially important ambassadorship, Max Baucus, the former Montana senator, provided a roadmap for truthfulness in the nominations process. Baucus, chosen to represent U.S. interests in Beijing, said, at his own confirmation hearing, “I’m no real expert on China.” He was confirmed by the Senate anyway. &! Google - Klüngel-Republik &!

Silicon Valley has evolved -- it’s not about startups anymore | VentureBeat | Entrepreneur | by Armando Biondi, AdEspresso
The consequence? Silicon Valley is no longer the best place to start a company (unless you’ve already been living there for a while now, of course) because everywhere else is. And “everywhere else” is the rest of the world — with cheaper talent, lower cost of living, and good access to initial capital as well — but also the rest of the U.S. outside of the tech hubs. Whether that’s good or bad, I don’t know. But it’s something you need to be aware of. That has been my advice lately to a few people asking for perspective from a guy who comes from Europe but has spent the last few years in the Valley. It’s a wonderful place, but it’s a very challenging one also. So if you’re starting something today, DO NOT come to Silicon Valley right away. It’s less expensive, less risky, and probably easier to start somewhere else, due to less competition. +++ https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=8182828 San Francisco Office Rents Seen Topping Manhattan in 2015 (bloomberg.com)

Alibaba Is Investing Huge Sums in an Array of U.S. Tech Companies - NYTimes.com
But the recent investments aren’t just about size. Alibaba is also rubbing elbows in the sometimes insular world of Silicon Valley-funded start-ups, where a handful of plugged-in financiers can help the company spot the next breakout smartphone app or e-commerce trend before it hits the mainstream. “With investments like these, they get good products, they make a splash, and most importantly, they build connections and trust amongst the venture capitalists,” said Sameet Sinha, an Internet analyst with B.

oftwominds-Charles Hugh Smith: The Changing Nature of Middle Class Work
The economy is changing in structural ways that affect not just the job market but the nature of work itself. If we ask, what is work?, the conventional answer is tasks that somebody will pay us to do. This is true, but it doesn't address why someone is willing to pay us. The answer is to create value. ... [ Skills, not Expertise. ] ...... As technology's ability to replace costly human labor moves from the factory floor to the service sector, the nature of middle class work is changing. [ IBM's company wide Pivot over +10 years from HW to Services and Software Company. With the accompanying downsizing. ] ... Jobs that can be learned in a few hours are prone to being replaced by machines. [...] The protected sectors beset by soaring costs (healthcare, higher education, major weaponry programs, finance, etc.) will undergo the creative destruction of technology-based productivity gains for the reason that they are already unaffordable, not just to households but to the nation.
