    Warrior’s last comment about helping other women is a very important point. As a technical female, I find that too often, women who are in a position to mentor or help, instead act with spite and competition. There seems to be an innate sense of cattiness that these women don’t realize sabotages the reputation of women overall in the workplace. I would cherish the chance to be mentored or even have a decent conversation with a woman who has been through the uphill battle of being a technical executive and not being labeled as any of the derogatory things that successful women are often called!! Even more so, a woman who has been able to do so without sacrificing the idea of family and a personal life.

    MATT W IS 25 YEARS OLD! WTF coud he possibly truly understand about a 20 year tech cycle (a tech cycle, that changes SO fast, is not anything akin to a political or financial cycle). Not taking away his supposed brilliance but I would rather hear from weathered CEOs who have been around the block many times, not from some kid who got it lucky once.

    1) Path is confusing and you’re telling the user how to use the app (which is annoying and will be one of facebook’s failings)
    2) what was the point of mentioning you are an olympic jr skier? #humblebrag
    3) we’re not all rich like you Dave. Most people cannot afford a personal trainer in this economy
