Hello Google?  Are you there?  Has anyone told you that your voicemail transcriptions are unbelievably terrible?  It's 2014.  Doesn't the NSA have something that works a little better?  I thought you guys knew some people over there.   :-)

The local critiques would have been much more positive if they had just called the show, "The Valley."  They shouldn't have called it "Silicon Valley."  Too specific and weighted down, not to mention the baggage of the last attempt.  It is a spoof, but it's hard to watch when the producer gives you no room to distance yourself from reality.  They didn't call it "Portland, Oregon."  They called it "Portlandia."  How about "Valley Guys"?

Getting to Wow! ... The difference between a good pitch and a compelling pitch . . . 
If you have only a few seconds to communicate the essence of your company, what is the most important message to deliver? You need a Wow! statement -- a distillation of your core value proposition that is clear, concise, and compelling.

Bill,

I have an idea for a truly groundbreaking product. I am partnering with Swiftkey, and starting a kickstarter very soon. I know that you have helped companies in the past with getting off the ground, but I am not quite sure where to begin. Please add me, so that we can start a hangout conversation, and talk about the project. If you would respond I would greatly appreciate it.

I am also looking into attending the Nvidia Emerging Companies Summit, if I can get registered in time.

Do elite universities have a selection bias that favors narrow individual achievement over team skills and creative thinking?  . . . 
My recent Washington Post and LinkedIn articles on how the GMAT may be the root of all evil in the business world provoked many intense reactions. I too was surprised to learn of the correlation
