The level of despair and anger of the workers the companies and politicians and the rest of the country abandoned is high. I just read book – Janesville – that reminded me again of life outside the bubble. Janesville, tells the story of laid-off factory workers of a General Motors factory that’s never going to reopen.

Forget about the rest. What makes a good VC?

VC Adventure

I particularly like what Mark Suster had to say on the topic in his response - especially his opening point, about liking the VCs you know and hating the rest (Andy calls out his own VCs as being great in his post, to Mark’s point). I should preface this post with the caveat that a VC describing what it takes to be a good VC runs the obvious risk of falling into a trap of vanity and lack of self-awareness.

Their announcement earlier this week of the iPhone 5S and 5C was nice but they are just trying to catch up to where the rest of market has been for a while.

They’ve been able to use this strategy to completely disrupt entire industries, beating the competition to the punch and sustaining their stranglehold on the market for years.

Book: Sabbath

Feld Thoughts

Last weekend a read a book by Wayne Muller called Sabbath: Finding Rest, Renewal, and Delight in Our Busy Lives. It was extraordinary and just what I needed to begin to understand the need for a real day of rest out of every seven days. He isn’t bashful about tying the idea of a day of rest back to religion, but he isn’t dogmatic about it, nor is it the dominant thought. I had Digital Sabbath #3 yesterday.
