I know this was never your intention with this post - BUT going to leave this comment anyways.

Benn Stancil was a guy for me that took just a few minutes to walk me through his company’s data stack back in 2018. He introduced me to Snowflake and told me to look into dbt. This was a super helpful early push in the right direction and has been hugely beneficial for me ever since. Thank You!!!

I swear I kearn as much from the links as the blog itself. Live the term 'Goat rodeo' abd I was fascinated by the Shiri's scissor piece. Still not sure what to think about the whole Aktman vs AU debate but it is interesting as hell.

Nice perspective. It makes me wonder though, would anyone have put their loyalty at public display for Altman if he wasnt the poster child of venture world and the most happening guy in SV currently? Power does strange things to people and those around them.

As a wiser person has said, "Character is like a tree and reputation is its shadow, it is what we think of, but tree is the real thing" tldr: depends on the vantage point.

So some focus on being the tree and some the shadow I guess.

Also had never heard about John 'Don't call me Lou' Rawls and the justice theory. Going to have to read up in that too.
