I don't think JDs are dead (sorry, Zappos) or even ineffective or obsolete. They're just written like crap.  So I figured we could help. I'll be choosing one JD a month to take from snoozer to sexy…Continue

"Where does all the actual money come from to back up all this hypothetical equity? Because I'm guessing between VC and an HR Tech startup, there ain't a whole lot of actual assets involved."

Posted on July 1, 2014 at 9:08am 2 Comments

It’s a widely cited fact, and to me, an unbelievable one: most Americans cite their biggest fear, by a wide margin, as speaking in public. Beyond the incredible insularity and egocentrism of this perspective (because Raiders fans, Anne Coulter and clowns do not, apparently, crack the top 10, and I…
