Bearer bonds: the dirty little secret of how powerful politicians, drug lords, rich people, and mass murderers hide their wealth.
If you are a wealthy business owner in Germany, an international drugs dealer or the head of a brutal regime, the methods are all pretty similar.

+Adam Mathias Swiss: that's a chicken-egg problem. My hypothesis is that you've got to try to create this kind of feedback loop where you try to find some small thing you can improve in a way that's not really threatening to anybody, and have everybody appreciate in practice how that benefits them. Rinse, lather, repeat. The goal is gradual structural improvement that repeatedly demonstrates its value by improving people's lives. And you can't be dogmatic or idealistic. You'll have to do it in a way which is acceptable to existing vested interests, which will mean negotiation and giving something in return, and importantly, trying to find ways of doing things that these powerful people ultimately appreciate as being in their interest as well. That means protecting their property, personal safety, and lots more.

Special economic zones (tabula rasa), Chinese style, are an interesting way to do it. Saakashvili, for all his issues, did the unimaginable with Georgian road police and bureaucracy-busting, etc. Sustainability is the question but I suspect lasting changes remain.

It's great to put things in perspective.
I read a “fuel” cost comparison article for the Tesla Model S and the BMW 7 series the other day [1]. The comparison was…

Lots of great old pictures of San Francisco and the history of Golden Gate Park.
We envision what San Francisco might look like today had Golden Gate Park been developed instead as a residential district.

I'm excited to share that Team +Leanplum just announced a $11.6M Series B led by Kleiner Perkins! We have a long road ahead, but having Kleiner along for that road sure helps! A big THANK YOU to the whole team for all the hard work, and I'm really excited about what lies ahead.

Excellent service. They ran a $95 diagnostic but said they wouldn't charge me for it if I fix the issue with them. In the end, indeed they didn't.
