- Cue Imperial March
"The Sith Lord of Startups" on Outlook Business.
California-based 500 Startups isn't your regular accelerator and its founder and 'Sith Lord', Dave McClure, isn't your regular VC. You either love him or hate him but you can't ignore him. A veteran of PayPal, Founders Fund, Facebook and LinkedIn, among others, he has invested in over 250 ...

I got a call from "Adam Smith" at "USCIS" about an affidavit filed against me by the U.S. embassy. I asked him why would there be US Embassy "here" and he got flustered and told me that the embassy is in my country. Pressed further, he said, "India"

He transferred me to his superior, "Allen Cooper" who told me I had failed in my "updation" of form I-94. He then asked me what I want to do. I told him I don't know what that is and need him to tell me. He hung up. He is reachable at 908-516-2xxx but refused to give me his email address. I'm guessing the number is fake.

If you don't hear from me, that may mean I've been deported 😄

Both gentlemen had fake American accents. "Updation" clinched it for me. Watch out if you have an Indian name and don't give these clowns any information.

I should have told "Adam" that his book, "Wealth of Nations" was my favorite growing up.

Mixed feelings about sending Google Glass back. Limited what I can do with it when I'm not on WiFi. Want to use it more but can't. #throughglass

Been eating here since they first opened up. The pizza is as amazing as always though, it feels like the pies have gotten a little smaller. Love the pizza and can't recommend it enough.
