Startup School

Boston Night

For the first 24 hours of my being in the Boston, it rained...and rained...and rained. From the time I stepped off the plane until Startup School was over, the rain did not let up for an instant.

This made for some awfully soggy walks to and from the Harvard subway stop, but in this atmosphere, nothing can dampen my mood. This conference has been phenomenal. The speakers were fantastic. My voice is horse from meeting and talking with fellow startup schoolers over drinks late into the night - it's been a near religious experience.

I feel that I now have a lot of thinking, and soul searching to do.

"Why shouldn't you do significant things in this one life, however you define significant?"

-- R. Hamming (as quoted in Olin Shivers' talk)
