@JohnFrankel Right. I am meeting VCs for the sake of my future: I plan on having a 20 year career in tech. I am not raising money this or next year, but after that who knows? By meeting people now, I am more de-risked and known 3 years down the road. Maybe it's a dumb strategy, but I have gotten to work with amazing entreprenuers.

This post is shitty, destructive and incorrect.
Be of value or get lost. Give first or get lost.
Understand who you're taking to or get lost.
Your schmoozing from a position of begging, and that's why you won't meet anyone ever.
Getting an intro is demonstrating baseline competence and social skills. That's it. If you can't figure it out and achieve that, don't play you fail.
Alerts. Nobody is talking about the future of alerts, but LOVE to be fed and I HATE to be emailed.

@jatkins679 Losers are a threat to your company. That's all. They have to be branded harshly or you get to tolerating losers and all that they bring in.

@vbiersch I personally like my racism just a little more subtle, but whatever floats your boat compadre.
This is sweet. We're overhauling all of our sites with Headway and learning that it already does what we want. It's cool to see some of the other major theme houses try and copy Headway.

But was he wrong? Meaning this: what is the REAL percentage of people getting most of their income/subsistence from the government? I doubt it's 47% (but it's hard saying, isn't it). I also don't think that spending time with the people that are in that category is particularly wise. Do enough just to make the other guy nervous...

@PatrickR But they lack our genetic mandate, and they don't have millions of generations of programming. They don't weep for their young. Etc. I'll always side with coprorations vs. government (i.e. citizens united), but if a corporation kills my kid, it's not going to go to jail. It'll get fined, and that's that.
No, no no, this is all wrong.
Spread rumors. Engage. Wear them down and chew them up.
You have to demoralize them. Start with the leadership/soft targets. Get on linked in and ask mutual connections if they are recovering from the domestic violence charges. Get in their heads, make them think about you all the time.
Little actions - like fake reviews on Yelp - can pay big dividends.
This is a war. It's not butterflies and ponies, it's a knock down drag out war with one winner and millions of losers. You either fight to the death, or you're a loser.
Do you think they are OK with you? They aren't. They want you dead, your children starving. They want you to be their serfs and vassals.

When your income stream is attacked, I can see why you'd respond emotionally and dishonestly. Where has Ryan represented himself as anything other than a manipulator?

@bgoldberg Right, Google isn't wrong to not consider her, marginal candidates have to hake riskier things.

@bgoldberg you said the smartest and dumbest thing in a thread all in about 2 comments!
IF she can turn Yahoo around we can finally end the moptreprenuer debates....
