We're a country in reverse. Please go register someone to vote out the privileged jerks that leverage fear and religious fervor to cement their own power, keep the disadvantaged down, and distract from income inequality.…
“SF Is Dead” party last night proving the contrary. These stock crash posters! 😆�dw
Investing feels like my new life-long craft, but I’m still writing! A heartfelt 🥰 thanks to the 10K of you reading my newsletter of crazy theories on what happens next!constine.substack.comt
My best startup storytelling advice? It’s what you give, not what you’ve got. For the 11 critical parts of a pitch: Mission/Origin Problem TAM Solution Competition Traction Go-To-Market Biz Model Team Vision Ask Reframe each around why they should care, not your accomplishments
Some perso-fessional news: 2 years after leaving TechCrunch to be a VC at SignalFire, they’ve promoted me to venture partner! I absolutely love helping founders (and this little one) find their voice
I heard the Uber and WeWork TV shows referred to as the "SoftBank Cinematic Universe" 😬
Zoom needs a “Handoff” button. Hit it, call in on a second device, and it gracefully closes the first with no echo. One of my voice is already too many.
I went on CNN to discuss how if Hearst bought newspapers in the 1800s to dictate their coverage, Elon buying the global newspaper makes him the editor-in-chief of us all
Elon’s superpower is fighting scientific inefficiency, not managing human psychology. I think he’ll get bored or frustrated with Twitter, longing for the straightforwardness of circuitry

News of #ElonMusk's $44bn #Twitter deal has many worried, asking how far he might go in allowing #FreeSpeech & whether those banned from the platform like #DonaldTrump will be allowed back. I get some answers from @JoshConstine @SignalFire on fears of #HateSpeech #misinformation

Elon. Getting rid of these crypto scammers has to be easier than building rockets. Hell, maybe just load them onto the rockets.
Love this quote from Summit Series’ founder @Bis on how to differentiate when every event wants to “keep it real”
Twitter is chasing the white whale of social apps - the offline status indicator. Could replace sticking conferences or current cities in your display name…
How do you create inclusive but intimate communities that stay cool? Come chat with the founders of Summit Series…
Jack admits shutting down Vine was even worse than his beard…
SF’s insane Bring Your Own Big Wheel race down Potrero Hill
I went on CNN to explain why Elon's privilege makes him oblivious to hate speech...and to see if I could Blink 182 times
How you know you said the right thing:
We're live discussing how to do compensation benchmarking and whether you should pay less for remote employees. Come save yourself some money…
Go SignalFire family! Our former partner @tonyhuie is building the modern VPN your team won't they'll actually use it.… We wrote this on why Twingate's zero-trust approach is the future of cybersecurity…
Hiring is ridiculously tough, so I'm hosting a crash course with an ex-Facebook executive recruiter today. Come learn candidate sourcing & comp negotiation!
Anyone else seeing blatant pro-Putin propaganda from Instagram meme pages? Wonder who's paying them to show his good side or his missiles "only hitting military targets"
My daughter has decided @yumi baby foods is actually a fashion startup
Mark Zuckerberg: "We won't take a cut of creator revenue until 2023". Guess he meant Facebook. New Meta, who dis?
Could you make a “how mainstream are you?” test meme by getting people to average the Like counts of the last 10 TikTok on their feed?
I think you, @chriswaclawek, @mnovendstern, and the crew would be in good company. Past guests include CEOs of Fb, Spotify, Shopify, Substack, Patreon; founders of OpenSea & Royal, the inimitable Shl0ms, & some purple haired dude from ConstitutionDAO 🙃constine.clubI
Twitter is basically pen-testing for human sensibilities.
Creators cannot depend on temporary, voluntary payouts from social networks. Just when you’ve refocused to chase their dollars, they’ll pull the rug

Terrified of declining relevance, Facebook fights dirty. First it ignores, then it copies, then it smears…
How to propose: -Upright posture on 1 knee, not your butt -Say why they’re special, don’t just pop the question -Leave a camera on or get a photographer/friend so you’re not fiddling with it -Don’t @ mention your NFTs
Kennedy, CEO of touching grass.
TikTok thinks I’m a Filipina mom who’s addicted to Elden Ring & craft cocktails, when actually I just feel bad scrolling past anyone’s videos!
Y’all in for a rude awakening
Can they make TikTok+ where I never have to be the test audience for zero-like gymbro videos?
discord communities will never feel fully immersive with 50 icons of other communities on the sidebar beckoning to their members as a spatial analogy: the psychological experience of being in a discord community feels like you're in a room, not a building

Join me and @StaceyPoliti at 4pm PT today on PressClub with @JoshConstine - we're talking about how Marketing is rapidly evolving

I want to know what other value-adds founders want from their VCs! We help with hiring, growth, PR, data science, AI, & more. But do you want design help? Community? Legal? @JimStoneham wrote about how VCs have to earn their allocations with sweat…
SignalFire just hired ex-Stripe CMO @JimStoneham to double-down on the thesis that we've entered a Founder's Market. He'll be helping our founders with sales & marketing, and spoke with Forbes about this big trend… tip @Techmeme
The funds that win this next cycle will be institutions with expensive but broad portfolio services, and solo GPs with lean value-adds like @packyM's newsletter. @SignalFire's been building recruiting tech & hiring in-house experts since 2013 to prep for this.
Power is shifting from investors to founders Why? A big influx of 💰. Venture grew from $294B in 2020 to $621B in 2021. Zoom lets you pitch faster, Twitter makes transparent who's actually helpful This means founders get to pick VCs based on value-adds, not just terms & brand
What a legend. @JimStoneham and I are already running workshops to help our portcos find their voice. Want marketing help? Pitch us!…
I just unlocked some core emo kid memories discovering this Drive Thru Records greatest hits. 🧛j
