Most businesses outside the valley don’t recognize the value of experimentation and the need for risk taking and hence manageable failures. It increases rate of learning and is especially critical for new emerging markets. twitter.com/bgurley/status…
If you don't care about costs! Another romantic notion from those who don't understand real tradeoffs. A client of our startup expanded campus recruiting from 20 to 200 campuses in going from humans to algorithms for early selection at lower costs & increased diversity & fairness twitter.com/rahulvsd/statu…
Very romantic but wrong! Data shows algorithms biased but less biased than humans in early screening. Let's leave hidden human biases behind & use less biased algorithms & start improving algorithms to have even less bias. Improvement is less likely in humans. "Robotic" is a bias twitter.com/NaraayanKannan…
Exactly the advice I offer in "Presenting to Investors" at youtube.com/watch?v=smDjGO… which is human to human communication. Pithy, short, punchy, declarative,... declutter every slide and spoken word and let the real "messages" shine thru with only the key uncluttered messages! twitter.com/SuasiveInc/sta…
One of our companies found human on-campus interviewers' performance in "offers to candidates selected for interviews" was 50% of algorithms & 25% less diverse! I'd rather have better "initial interviews" with higher "end offer rates" than biased humans with half the accuracy! twitter.com/BrianLockhart/…
These figures from @nntaleb in Antifragile perfectly describe @vkhosla idea of running experiments with 1x downside but 10x upside. Iteration is the heart of startup agility, and it epitomizes the optionality which these early-stage companies can leverage.

Resume advice: Optimize it for algorithms! Use short, descriptive sentences to help an AI parse your résumé, Siegel says. Clearly list your skills. “You want to be declarative and quantitative, because software is trying to decide whether you will be put in front of a human”

.@vardaspace is building space factories -- aka, industrial parks in orbit -- and just raised their Series A. Go team. Just love entrepreneurs pushing the boundaries.
This infographic map of UK land use is fascinating. Note the amount of land used for golf courses. It's a myth that the UK is too 'built-up'. In reality, we have masses of space for homes. And f people went vegetarian, we'd have more land to spare and lower GHG emissions

Curious about the design of the #MightyHouse single-family homes product line? We worked with @EYRCarchitects to design #zeronetenergy homes with our #MIghtyKitSystem. Here are 3 facts about our modular designs that maximize our tech in collaboration with #EYRCarchitects (1/4):

Fact 3: @EYRCarchitects’ commitment to sustainability is something we at @mightybuildings value. Our units have the capability to be #netzeroenergy with the addition of the solar package. (4/4)

Fact 2: By using our proprietary #LightStoneMaterial, @EYRCarchitects’ design is beautiful yet the clean white color holds up over time against UV light. (3/4)

The evolution beyond MVP continues as virus optimizes itself. Delta Plus variant has acquired a mutation known as K417N from the South African variant. Some monoclonal antibody therapies are less effective on this. We will learn more next few months but need for caution continues twitter.com/vkhosla/status…

Very interesting analysis from @eladgil: blog.eladgil.com/2021/06/unicor…. According to these data, Europe has added 25 unicorns since Oct 2020, while China has added just 9. Canada, Israel seeing striking upticks. US maintains enormous overall lead.

Whether it jumped or escaped from a lab, the statement of increasing certain capabilities thru evolution holds. The likelihood that it escaped from a lab rather than moved from animals is today the highest probability and hence "the likely origin" twitter.com/AleResnik/stat…
We are not thru it. UK is susceptible despite decent vaccination rates. COVID19 started in humans relatively poorly optimized (R0 ~2) but is getting "better" (R0 5-8 for delta). Measles is at R0 14-25 so where will COV19 go? What are next 2-3 variants & will they evade vaccines? twitter.com/EricTopol/stat…
Though not everyone can have the type of intelligence we measure but everyone can have an education. And different types of intelligence make one better at different things. And society needs to especially take care of people with few of these "genetic lotteries". twitter.com/naval/status/1…
Glucose control lives on a spectrum & getting close to the edge of a change in classification from normal to pre to diabetic is key to actionability & prevention! Docs who want to "manage disease" instead of "prevent" are focused on "billability" instead of keeping people healthy twitter.com/davidasinclair…
Best article @PeterAttiaMD has written. Demolishes doctors who say stick-on glucose monitors are only useful for diabetics, the all-too-common “let patients get sick before we act” attitude that harms millions of Americans tinyurl.com/2f656vrv
