No idea how Emily (or others) do this job. Live TV is incredibly hard, and they’re dealing with so much info so fast, just super complex. (at Bloomberg)
On BloombergTV with Emily Chang in a few. Looking at my badge picture, I seem to have been incognito last time. :-)
Full of banana.
It is remarkable to see the strong rating distribution for Tumblr’s mobile application. It is a testament to the team’s dedication to delivering a compelling mobile first experience.
I believe a startup should feel like this.

Life is good.
We’re not thinking about, ‘Wow, we have this need out there. We need trained professionals to help fill it. We’re thinking, ‘Oh yeah, someone’s got to watch the kids. Let’s pay ‘em like babysitters. — Jonathan Cohn tells Terry Gross about the problem with how Americans think about day care. (via nprfreshair)

Timehop has become one of my very favorite things about digital life lately. We’re not investors, but I love what their team has built, because it’s so essentially human.
As I described to Jonathan, what happens about every other day, sometime in the morning, is that my wife or I sees a note/picture/tweet from a few years ago — when our son was 2 or 3 or 4 — and we send it to the other. In that way, Timehop is helping us connect with each other to remember some of our fondest memories together.
It’s emblematic of why I love this wave of mobile technology, too — because we have our devices with us all the time, and they can capture images and feelings so quickly and thoughtlessly, they’re becoming more human, and helping us connect.
I do worry some about how technology yanks us out of our present contexts, and I think it’s important to be intentional about issues like that, but these moments of connection, as more and more of our artifacts are digital — and therefore ubiquitous, retrievable, searchable & shareable — well, that’s a pretty special thing for sure.
Thanks so much to Jonathan & folks at Timehop — you’ve helped us to remember and talk about and laugh about and cry about many of the most important moments over the last few years.
DJ's Stanford Talk This Friday -
If you’re near Palo Alto this Friday, make sure to go see DJ’s CS547 (HCI) talk at 12:50p in Gates B01.
DJ’s incredible, of course, and this lecture series has been unbelievable over a period of 20 years now. I saw the web demoed for the first time on a NeXT machine in 1993/94 there. Many giants of thinking about how humans interact with computing have spoken in the series, and I’m very happy that DJ’s name will be added to the list. Go see him.
So the next time you read about an overnight success, or a billion-dollar exit, think about what went into that story. Think about the amazing teamwork that it took to will nothing into something. Think about whether you are building a team that can do that. Think about whether you are just trying to replicate the latest and greatest success story…if you are, stop. You can’t believe everything you read in the newspaper. So write your own story. — David Tisch: Building an Uninspired Team - The Accelerators - WSJ
