This was an idea I tweeted yesterday, and a few hours later I made it into a real shirt.

It’s been suggested that I make the design with something other than the states of the Midwest, but it’s hard to think of what that would be, as I am so proud of my regional heritage’s values.

In retrospect, I think “Never Express Needs” might be a stronger close. The way it is now requires just a little too much effort to work out.

You Are Not Late

…here is the other thing the greybeards in 2044 will tell you: Can you imagine how awesome it would have been to be an entrepreneur in 2014? It was a wide-open frontier! You could pick almost any category X and add some AI to it, put it on the cloud. Few devices had more than one or two sensors in them, unlike the hundreds now. Expectations and barriers were low. It was easy to be the first. And then they would sigh, “Oh, if only we realized how possible everything was back then!”

Garden snail glow-paint dance party! 

Corni aspersum are marked with LED lights and UV paint to help researchers track their movements. This is the humble garden snail who munches your lettuce throughout the temperate parts of the world, and is eaten itself as escargot. It turns out that they have a great homing and roaming instinct (bad news for your seedlings).

Time-lapse photography revealed that snails move faster and further than most imagine, reaching speeds of 1 metre an hour and able to cover 10 metres a night. In wet weather, they form convoys, sliding along the slime trails of preceding snails.

These big collections of personal data are like radioactive waste. It’s easy to generate, easy to store in the short term, incredibly toxic, and almost impossible to dispose of. Just when you think you’ve buried it forever, it comes leaching out somewhere unexpected.
Managing this waste requires planning on timescales much longer than we’re typically used to. A typical Internet company goes belly-up after a couple of years. The personal data it has collected will remain sensitive for decades.


I like to think of the quote from King Lear:


I will do such things,—
What they are, yet I know not: but they shall be
The terrors of the earth

That’s the essence of investor storytime. Give us money now, and you won’t believe how awesome our ads will be when we finally put them on the site.

King Lear would have killed it in Silicon Valley.
