Something I see every day that is rarely discussed: founders/former founders/experienced founders helping new founders when they have no economic incentive to do so. This is part of the culture that makes the startup world work.
The image/prestige of the startup world has taken some big hits in the last couple years and it's not inclusive as it should be. But by and large the startup community is one of the most helpful, most sharing, and most selfless communities you could ever belong to.
I think this has something to do with how rare success is and how humble most successful founders are. Every successful founder knows that their victory had a lot to do with luck.
Unlike many other industries, startup founders rarely think of themselves as competing against each other and often think of themselves as collectively competing against almost certain death.
Also note - I'm talking about the startup industry not the tech industry. The more I work in the startup industry the more I realize how little it actually overlaps with "big tech".
I've been getting replies about Jonathan Yaniv's predatory behavior from people in the trans community. While it's wonderful to see the support for women, I'm bothered by the suggestion that Yaniv isn't "really" trans.
President Trump getting ahead of Gen. Mattis let the president write the chyrons. They're being rewritten now because this is clearly a complete repudiation of the American president, even suggesting Trump is aligning with our enemies... (thread)
1) The military tribunal theory is taking off. As much as I would like that, I don’t think so. I think these men have done their jobs and Trump no longer needs them. These men won their battles. Behind closed doors, these men purged the enemies of We the People. We won. https://t.co/OvpimINcqj
New Q: Ryan (age 48) announced retirement on 11 Apr so he could "spend more time with his children." It appears his CoS, Burks, was involved in #SpyGate coup attempt vs @POTUS. More Rs have announced resignations than Ds. Ds hoping to stop what's coming. https://t.co/w93LzsgMbV https://t.co/JM2F5t4Lec

WOW, interesting! - A Hawker 800XP business jet (reg M-VITO), reportedly owned by Yevgeny Prigozhin, landed at Wilson Airport (WIL, HKNW), Nairobi, Kenya three days ago. Rumor is that it landed after closing, IE no ATC, no runway lights, no immigration. https://t.co/J1hcE2vOXk https://t.co/zpRm7KuBMC
Did you know that mammy market was named after a woman called Mammy Ochefu? Yes yes! Every military barrack in Nigeria has a place called ‘mammy market’, a place close to the barracks, where soldiers’ interact and buy their daily needs. In 1955 at Enugu, the market was named https://t.co/OvrPiWACXO
