From my StartupDigest email this morning:
----
LA StartupDigest - Goodbye, My Name is Matthias | April 29, 2013

And I'm an addict.

Over the last 3 years, my startup lifestyle was like a drug. But what was even more like a drug was the drugs. As living in sobriety one day at a time (specifically, via Narcotics Anonymous) becomes the most important thing in my life, it also becomes clear that I must resign myself from both.

So I leave you in the capable care of my curatorial comrades, J.Z. and BertBert, and today bid farewell to the startup community. I'd say 'thanks for all the memories' but it turns out that whenever you (very literally) speed through life - too fast and too furious - most of the rearview gets blurry. Still, a few folks should be able to call me the Paul Walker when I come round to apologize for the way I been acting (per NA Step 9). Otherwise, know that all y'all upstarts reside in my heart (and my prayers) forever. For the love. Good luck, and good hunting.

Ghost,
Matthias

I was wandering around the Vegas startup area in a daze last week with no real plan, aside from talking to any people who knew Jody. I started a conversation with a stranger at their main coffeeshop/coworking spot, and about 45min into my ramblings I ask "so what do you do". 

"I'm a reporter for the Las Vegas Sun."

So that's that. http://www.lasvegasweekly.com/news/2013/feb/13/joe-downtown-behind-happy-faces-and-handshakes-run/

Not everybody in this game has the privilege of real talk in a public forum, which is why I'm deeply honored by the founders who've chosen to join me for this Thursday's discussion and share their own stories of just how real this life really gets.

Ladies and gents, thanks for accepting me into your community, I look forward to being a constructive part of it.

I hope this doesn't come across as self-promotional, as it's truly been a labor of love who's entire raison d e'tre has been to create something great for people like ourselves.  I present you with it because I'd be honored to have any/all try it out, and more importantly, provide me with candid feedback on how my team & I can make it better: BEASTMODE.FM (http://beastmode.fm/)

Enjoyed the rare pleasure of headlining Entrepreneur Magazine's celebrated '100 Brilliant Companies' report in 2011 (in print & online), then subsequently learning that press/blog/editorial opinions don't count as market validation.
