But will entrepreneurs, the lifeblood of the Valley, still come if the money’s drying up? “If anything,” Thiel says, “we’ll have a lot more talented people going into things like real engineering, as opposed to financial engineering.”
The Late Greats – Wilco
I found this blog while listening to the Hype Machine this morning. Great songs from the year of the last presidential election. Hard to pick my favorite song but this is one of them.
I Shall Be Released – Bob Dylan
I needed to hear this song this morning.
Waitin for a Superman – The Flaming Lips
This song is from the album “The Soft Bulletin”. It’s about 10 years old or so. Maybe because it’s a rainy day, maybe because of the market, maybe because I just wan’t thrilled with the debate last night, I really don’t know.
But it sums up my feelings right now.
Seven Nation Army – Kate Nash
Kate Nash does some great covers and this one has grown on me a lot. Original by the White Stripes
Whether it’s during the G1 announcement, playoff games, the WWDC or political events like the RNC or DNC.
Those events trigger a heavy use of Twitter.
Last night the team at Twitter launched a special page at election.twitter.com. The idea is to display trending topics about the election as well as a filter of all Twitter updates in real time for the various candidates. Jack Dorsey the ceo of Twitter sums it all up the best with this tweet.
I’m really excited about this. Twitter & democracy in action!
Just got this message from my daughter. I could tell that she had a big smile on her face and it my day.

How Many Friends – The Who
This song is a bit dark, deep and lonely. I’m not feeling that way at all, but I’m posting it anyway. It’s just good to remember and appreciate your real friends that care about you no matter what. I am grateful.
Oh, and plus, I just love The Who. The bass line in this song rocks :)
Another Way To Die – Jack White & Alicia Keyes
Heres the song from the latest Bond movie. I’ve been in a big Jack White mood for the past few months. And I don’t see it changing anytime soon.
the nice thing about doing email that is three days old is much of it is irrelevant now and has been taken care of by someone else
