great slide deck on what makes best in class enterprise software companies; why zero knowledge proof required for banks on the blockchain; all about AWS reinvent this week- the whole infrastructure world will be there and if you are reading this, you should too; AWS just added machine learning consultancy and lab for customers - going after the enterprise world in a tried and true fashion; end of net neutrality would be terrible for us consumers so let’s make sure to rally against this; and Happy Thanksgiving to all!

great slide deck on what makes great enterprise software companies - also case study on Atlassian’s amazing bottom up sales model

Silicon Valley is bursting with fledgling venture-capital funds as cash continues to flow despite worries that startups have generally returned little in profits.
