    A friend forwarded me a link yesterday to something pretty amazing, it’s called BayesDB. Basically, it is a database architecture that detects predictive relationships between variables. Here’s how the guys who developed it at MIT describe their creation. BayesDB, a Bayesian database table, lets users query the probable implications of their data as easily as [...]

    Bob Dylan is one of my favorite artists of all time. I say artist and not singer because I actually like Dylan’s lyrics more than his voice. He is an amazing poet. I recently stumbled on a song while listening to the new iTunes Radio, which blows Pandora out of the water by the way, [...]

    I got a call from my mother this afternoon asking me if she should buy Bitcoins with her probably too small for her age retirement account.

Over the course of my time in the startup world, about 5 years now, I’ve learned two extremely important lessons about the DNA of [...]
