The winter months bring a special kind of beauty to Nantucket.The beaches are quiet and the boats have long left the docks. The days are shorter and the island prepares for a long stretch ahead.
The very first weekend of in December every year is known as Stroll Weekend. The town is fully decorated in holiday spirit and so do the visitors and residents alike. It’s a wonderful time & place to spend with loved ones.
Nabeel and I recorded a new episode of our podcast, Hallway Chat, yesterday. It’s a bit shorter than usual. We mostly discussed Google’s announcements from I/O 2016 and how it compared to Facebook’s F8. And we disagreed about a bunch of stuff :)
Our friend Fred Wilson joined us today for our 23rd episode of Hallway Chat.

-Chris Dixon’s, What’s Next In Computing?
-Why haven’t we seen a new breakout consumer app

Last night Dick was honored with a PEN award. Took place at the Museum of Natural History in New York City.
I’m not one for getting all dressed up for big events like this but it’s an incredibly noble organization and wonderful to see Dick and Twitter recognized for their contributions as an enabler and guardian of free speech.
