The Compounded Brain: I look for founders with powerful mental frameworks that have been compounded by experimentation and execution of ideas to epic reality or to noble failure. Compounded Brains can often bend space and time.

Please get vaccinated. And when booster shots available get that too. It’s not just your health you’re protecting but the health of your family and community around you and, yes, even ultimately, the health of your fellow humans around the world.

Richer nations need to subsidize vaccinations for poorer nations ASAP as part of a Covid Marshall Plan; Covid knows no national borders. Our policy needs to be a universal one that gets everyone vaccinated with booster shots ASAP. https://t.co/jmnrqFz5tp

One piece of advice: stay out of St. Tropez. I haven’t been but hearing people are getting Delta there like moths to a flame. Double vaccinated or not. Too many indoor parties. Double vaccinated doesn’t mean you won’t get a mild case of Delta and become a super spreader. https://t.co/NuukstAWJg

Investing $50m into UberChina was one of my proudest moments in my venture career. To back an early bet in such a way as it expands globally meant a lot. We then doubled down another $50m into Didi after the Didi-UberChina merger. Kudos to @emilmichael & TK. Ambition matters. https://t.co/tcaQ479iFZ

Squarespace will be a $20B+ company. Amazing to me that it’s valued at $8.71B. $SQSP at $64 a share seems to be a steal. In my opinion and analysis, I’d expect it to at least double to $128/share by end of 2022.

The blockchain needs to move off terrestrial servers and onto microsatellites in space and operate under Space Law.
