Thanks Dave!
 
I had a blast chatting with +Alex Moore, CEO and co-founder of Baydin. If you use email you should know about Baydin's products like Boomerang and The Email Game.

I love how he visited Silicon Valley for two weeks to network and seek funding for his company. He went to a different tech networking event every night to make the connections he needed to grow Baydin.

It's an amazing story you should hear for yourself on the podcast. Check it out. 
My interview with Baydin's Alex Moore. Talking about email management with Boomerang and The Email Game, networking in Silicon Valley, and following up.

Excited to head to Austin for SXSW tomorrow! If you want to meet up, let me know.

Moah and I will be speaking on a panel about doing a startup as a couple also! http://schedule.sxsw.com/2014/events/event_IAP21082
What's it like starting a company with your significant other? Your work and home life will lose separation. Some VCs won't fund you as a matter of principle. But at the same time, you get to obsess about work together, long hours aren't quite so hard to bear, emotional support is baked into ...

Exponential growth is a phenomenon for social games, messaging services, and not much else... you should expect discovery and saturation of marketing channels to drive your early growth numbers -- resulting in growth that's polynomial, rather than linear or exponential. 
 
We have all heard about "hockey stick growth", when revenue hits an inflection point and takes off at an exponential rate. In this episode of Root Access, +Alex Moore  from the startup Baydin tells +Don Dodge that you can do quite well, even if you don't get exponential growth, by his method for user acquisition, optimizing one channel at a time.

"Excuse me, is you saying something? Uh uh, you can’t tell me nothing" will now be my default response to all investor emails. +Manu Kumar +Dave McClure 
If you are an entrepreneur, you have probably heard some crusty old CEO or investor say something like “cash is king.” You probably read the Twitter S-1 and thought to yourself: “What the hell are those old guys talking about?” Twitter is still burning cash six years after founding and they, ...

the feedback you've given is nice
like flavorless colorless rice
we like to have fun
when our work is done
so go kill yourself.

There's a poet lurking inside of all of us. Sometimes, annoying customer email is all it takes to bring it out. Nicely done, Lo! (we didn't send it. but we wanted to.)

Ever wanted a label where you could go to find every message you've sent that hasn't been answered? One of our customers, +Matt Galligan asked for something like this a few months ago. 

Apps Script is a very powerful, lightweight way to build small email (and document, and spreadsheet) utilities. Here's a post on the Google Developer Blog that describes how we used Apps Script to solve this problem for +Gmail users!

http://googleappsdeveloper.blogspot.com/2014/05/find-unanswered-emails-with-apps-script.html
As the CEO of an email productivity company, not a day goes by when I don't learn about a new email pain point. I love solving email problems for our customers, but many of their problems do not lend themselves to a full browser-extension and server solution, like the products we make.

#MIT researchers shrink triple-negative breast tumors in mice using nanoparticles that carry the #cancer drug doxorubicin, as well as short strands of RNA that can shut off one of the genes that cancer cells use to escape the drug.

This was fun! Thanks again for having me. 
 
This morning +Don Dodge and I shot new episodes for Root Access, the show on Google Developer Live about startups. We answered viewer questions and we had some great guests, like +Alex Moore  who told us about the "hockey stick myth".

Check out the listings on developers.google.com/live! New Root Access episodes usually come out on Mondays and Fridays.

Worst thing about Chromecast? I keep reading it as Comcast. And nobody likes Comcast.

They will call you at 5:30 AM if they get your phone number. If you call this dealership or get connected with them through TrueCar, expect lots of unwanted phone calls. I wasn't happy with the 3 I received during normal hours, but the 5:30 AM call really put me over the top. I hope their business withers and dies, as befits their black, avaricious hearts.

Catfish in a clay pot dish is pretty wonderful. So is their yellow noodle dish. Don't go at lunch. They will charge you 20% gratuity for a buffet if you have more than 4 people, make you wait even if the restaurant is empty, and not even refill your water.
