How ChefSteps and Gabe Newell Plan to Transform Sous Vide Cooking - Eater
Newell has no ownership in the company and is not considered a shareholder. He's sort of like a fairy godfather to ChefSteps — advising against VC funding and "premature monetization" — and is the reason why ChefSteps was able to hire 50 people to spend three years building Joule.

Linux perf Examples
At Kernel Recipes 2017 I gave an updated talk on Linux perf at Netflix, focusing on getting CPU profiling and flame graphs to work. This talk includes a crash course on perf_events, plus gotchas such as fixing stack traces and symbols when profiling Java, Node.js, VMs, and containers.

That's 442x slower. It is worst-case, since dd(1) is performing syscalls as fast as it can.

"perf trace" has improved since I wrote that, and may well be mostly strace-equivalent (but without crippling overhead) in the latest Linux.

Unrolled thread from @patio11
The hardest problem in B2C is distribution. The hardest problem in B2B is sales. AppAmaGooBookSoft are AppAmaGooBookSoft primarily because they have mortal locks on distribution.

Software companies in B2B which aspire to growing quickly will eventually spend more on sales and marketing than they do on engineering. You can read S-1s of successful IPOs and calculate the ratio; it is sometimes 2X++.

The chief products of the tech industry are (in B2C) developing new habits among consumers and (in B2B) taking a business process which exists in many places and markedly decreasing the total cost of people required to implement it.

Investors in venture-back companies are purchasing a product. It is critically important to understand that that product is growth.

Meta thought: you radically underestimate both a) how much you know that other people do not and b) the instrumental benefits to you of publishing it.

How much dry ice is required to ship meat via 2-day service? Can gel freezer packs be used to keep meat frozen? The weight of the meat would range from 5 to 20 pounds. Is there a preferred styrofoam container to ship with? - eXtension
The meat will travel best if vacuum sealed and deep frozen (-10˚F). The more meat, the less ice you'll need, due to the cold thermal mass of the meat. For this same reason, larger volumes of meat are more likely to ship better than smaller volumes, and thus you should consider a minimum order of 5 to 10 pounds.

How Blue Apron Compares to Other Subscriptions in One Graph
One helpful analysis indicates an implied LTV:CAC ratio of 3:1.

About 1/3 of subscribers are retained at month 6 for Blue Apron versus over 3/4 for Netflix and Dollar Shave Club. It’s important to note that where Netflix and DSC customers typically make one transaction per month, the average Blue Apron customer is purchasing 2–3 times per month, which makes the stark contrast in retention a bit more palpable.

The potential for growth is there, still. A Piper Jaffray note published in June 2016 predicts the market will reach $4 billion near-term, and $36 billion in annual sales by 2026. That’s about the most optimistic estimate out there.
