Blood In The Streets

Feld Thoughts

I was on vacation for a week in Slovenia celebrating my partner Seth’s 40th birthday. The rides in Slovenia were awesome. Remember – this is a tiny little town in Slovenia (Kobarid).

It’s a calm moment when you are in that state where it takes another five seconds to realize what just happened.

This year the internet arrives in Australia

Start Up Blog

Some of the countries with faster internet include Kenya, Lithuania, Slovenia, Moldova and many developing economies. We don’t really have the internet in Australia. I mean, sure we are connected to it, but we aren’t even in the top 50 countries for internet speeds. That’s a total travesty for our economic future. This is the modern.

I blogged last year about the amazing 40th birthday trip my wife Greeley sent me and 9 friends on – cycling through Slovenia and Italy (original blog post along with a bunch of pictures here ). We had a video put together of the whole experience that I thought I’d share. Thanks to Mike Shum for the video production!

If you’ve been following me on social media I’m sure you noticed a bunch of posts tagged with #3010 at the beginning of September, along with some stunning photos of Slovenia. We chose Slovenia to get a little off the beaten path in Europe (and I had always wanted to go to the Balkens). Slovenia is a beautiful country with rolling geen hills and high mountains. Ljubljana is a beautiful city, the capital of Slovenia. The food was great in Slovenia.

Recalibrating For The Summer

Feld Thoughts

The fall started with a bike accident in Slovenia and ended with surgery to remove an 8mm kidney stone. Even though I haven’t been in school for a long time, I still have some tenuous link to the idea of summer vacation. Well, not some much vacation, but a mode shift from going to class every day to doing other stuff, such as playing tennis at least eight hours a day (age 10 – 14) or writing software products (age 17 – 21).

Detroit Free Press Marathon

Feld Thoughts

I haven’t run much at all since my bike accident in Slovenia in early September and my ribs and left elbow still hurt a little. Marathon #23 is complete. On Sunday, I finished the Detroit Marathon in 4:41:39. The two smiling faces next to me in the picture are Matt Shobe, who I’ve now done three marathons with, and my running coach Gary Ditsch. They ran with me in Detroit and it was super helpful to have them.

Yesterday Was The End of My Biking Career

Feld Thoughts

I’ve had two accidents in three years – the first in Slovenia left blood on the streets. First off – I’m ok. But here’s the story. “Ouch” “You’re in an ambulance. I’m just putting an IV in your arm,” said a disembodied voice. I had no idea where I was. I had a vague recollection that I had been on a bike. “You’re in ambulance. You are ok. Stay calm.”

The Power of a Deadline

When I got back from “summer” – which was my return to New York from my bike trip to Slovenia – Amy and I had 15,000 words written for Startup Life. If you’ve ever shipped anything, you understand the power of a deadline.

Resetting My Priorities

Feld Thoughts

It started with a bike crash in Slovenia, followed by a few weeks in New York where I physically felt awful. If you’ve been following along at home, you know I’ve had a tough fall. Fortunately I was with Amy for her birthday (we celebrate her birthday for most of September), but I underestimated how long it would take me to recover.

Here are The Missing Positives of This Election

Both Sides of the Table

Liberia, Argentina, Bangladesh, Lithuania, Trinidad, Brazil, Kosovo, Slovenia, Denmark, Jamaica, South Korea, Norway, Poland & Croatia. It’s hard to feel any positives these days: We’re in the eye of the storm. We’re at peak anxiety. Maximum rancor. We’ve already blocked family members on Facebook or unfollowed obnoxious people on Twitter. We’ve scratched our heads at how one of Silicon Valley’s brightest could back a candidate so overtly racist.

Create High-Impact Data Visualizations: Nine Effective Strategies

Occam's Razor

with… with… inspired by FLOTUS, the 10 year performance of Slovenia…. I believe deeply in the value of making data accessible. In service of that belief, there are few things that bring me as much joy as visualizing data (smart segmentation comes close). There is something magical about taking the tons and tons of complexity that lurks in our data, being able to find the core essence, and then illustrate that simply.
