  • I’ve been following her career since her Burberry years. A rare business artist. She's definitely someone who has a deep instinctual understanding of the consumer behavior and the ability to synthesize that behavior through technology into shareholder values.

    Love to see whatever she does next- but

    I’ve been following her career since her Burberry years. A rare business artist. She's definitely someone who has a deep instinctual understanding of the consumer behavior and the ability to synthesize that behavior through technology into shareholder values.

    Love to see whatever she does next- but I hope it's either starting her own company, or take over and turn around J.Crew. They badly need her talents.

  • FB is, pure and simple, an undervalued stock (note that I'm speaking as someone who's been holding onto FBs since their IPO), here's why from a financial POV:

    The perception around the ethicality of their biz model is and will, rightfully, be impacted by a stream of negative PR as pointed out by Rajesh

    FB is, pure and simple, an undervalued stock (note that I'm speaking as someone who's been holding onto FBs since their IPO), here's why from a financial POV:

    The perception around the ethicality of their biz model is and will, rightfully, be impacted by a stream of negative PR as pointed out by Rajesh, probably for many years. But it still doesn't change the fact that their underlying fundamentals remain strong. Especially given their large/growing market share in social media and the still unrealized monetization potential of WhatsApp and IG (case in point - I spoke to many local SMBs/brick & mortar's owners in Seattle and most said IG is driving increasing amount of customers to their establishments). Overall, given the population reach that FB products command, advertisers just simply don't have the option of investing their spend elsewhere and this will ensure strong revenue growth for years to come.

    That said — I do see 3 factors that will truly hurt FB's core business and reduce their competitive advantages.

    1. FB is forced to split up into smaller separate companies by regulators. Big red flag if IG is forced to separate.

    2. A slew of new social media platform comes along that offers what FB/IG offers (plus much better privacy control) and start taking away their users or their time in front of FB/IG.

    3. Apple decides to punish FB and ban the app from Appstore (unlikely, but if this happens and it stunts FB's growth - it will show investors how dependent FB is on Apple).

  • “The shutdown comes in response to news that Facebook has been using Apple’s program for internal app distribution to track teenage customers with a “research” app.”

    And this is why the combination of freedom of the press + investigative journalism is so vital in today’s digital-driven society where

    And this is why the combination of freedom of the press + investigative journalism is so vital in today’s digital-driven society where consumers have more to lose than to gain.

  • Not sure why would you want someone who’s famous for cutting corners to be in your corner?

  • WeWork's CEO is raking in cash via double-dip practice while their business itself is not profitable (only one of their locations turns in a profit), and is losing money at a pace of more than 100% of its revenue to achieve growth.

    Not a good look for a company with IPO aspirations (weak fundamentals

    WeWork's CEO is raking in cash via double-dip practice while their business itself is not profitable (only one of their locations turns in a profit), and is losing money at a pace of more than 100% of its revenue to achieve growth.

    Not a good look for a company with IPO aspirations (weak fundamentals from investor perspective), and it wouldn't surprise me if the CEO departs at some point once his, ethically questionable, financial benefits are removed.

    Good on SoftBank for not going through with acquiring the majority stake.

  • “You need a lot more than 30 books”

    Books are meant to be read. So unless it's an academic or a professional necessity, what purpose does it to serve to accumulate close to or more than 30 books on our shelves - when they can be read/enjoyed by other people after we’re done?

  • This is a very nuanced problem and I don’t think we can just make the assumption that “everyone” hates all open offices based on aggregated and incomplete data from a bunch of research. Some questions we should dive into-

    Who are the professionals likely to enjoy open office plan the most/least? (Engineers

    This is a very nuanced problem and I don’t think we can just make the assumption that “everyone” hates all open offices based on aggregated and incomplete data from a bunch of research. Some questions we should dive into-

    Who are the professionals likely to enjoy open office plan the most/least? (Engineers, Sales, Creatives, etc)

    What features of open office plan work well vs. the ones that are not working out? (Your back facing a wall or another person? One big table or separate tables?)

    What about open office plan where employees from different functions sit together vs. from same function? (Engineers sit with sales, Engineers sit with engineers)

  • This is what happens when bookmakers try to capitalize on The Trump Show, then underestimate both Trump himself and their players. It looks like 92% of the participants are much more informed than they had anticipated.

  • It’s a complete myth that we accomplish or build anything alone. Somewhere along the line, sacrifices were made by someone or by a few individuals to help us get to where we are today.

    Time and energy is finite, so without the big, silent sacrifices made by women like MacKenzie Bezos, majority of us

    It’s a complete myth that we accomplish or build anything alone. Somewhere along the line, sacrifices were made by someone or by a few individuals to help us get to where we are today.

    Time and energy is finite, so without the big, silent sacrifices made by women like MacKenzie Bezos, majority of us men won’t be in the position to devote 100% of our time to succeed in our careers and entrepreneurial endeavors. There would be no Amazon without MacKenzie Bezos, and that fact alone should speak volume in this divorce proceeding.

  • “There’s a difference between being an activist and a lawmaker in Congress.” - House Democrat

    Time will tell, but if AOC proves that she is both an effective activist and a lawmaker, her path to post-2020 US Presidency is sealed.
