While I constantly bet against incumbents, I also increasingly witness the relentless innovation capacity of public tech cos like @twilio, @okta, @stripe, @datadog, @Atlassian, etc Getting harder to compete with new incumbents.

Best of luck to all teams hustling to have a strong finish to the sales quarter! πŸ’ͺy

Shift to Signal conversations died down quickly I guess. Most people don't seem to care about additional security that Signal might provide. People are fine with iMessage & Whatsapp.
At this rate, SPACs could lead to as much exit value as the whole 2020 πŸ€” This doesn't include direct listings, IPO, M&A. 2021 will be an impressive year of liquidity in the US.
