Malcolm Gladwell: The Art of Management - YouTube
Humble & smart. Respect and listen the advice from elders. // No technology is good at everything. // True activism can't be replaces with technology. // VC (Venture Capital, Angel Investor) know they can't predict winners, if they said that, that would be equal to predicting the future.

If you aren't, you'll be a necessary evil who can be mistreated without much risk to the company (there are of course exceptions, like product managers at tech companies and quants at finance companies). [...] But my advice to new graduates is to be strategic in your career, i.e. look ahead 10+ years when you'll be more senior. Go in a direction where you'll be valued." || >> being an engineer at the original Groupon is a different position in value to business core compared 2 engineering position @GOOG + ||
