The Spurs/Clippers series was absolutely phenomenal! A real treat (and nail biter) for basketball fans -- too bad that one of those teams had to lose...especially in the first round.

“It’s very hard out here for any woman that’s over 50, it really is.” I would imagine that due to age discrimination it's very hard for women and men to get a job as they get older.

As a side note, my first full time job after graduating college was at Fannie Mae as an "administrative assistant" (a ... Read more

Oh, wow. A doozy of an acquisition. I see lots of zero's.

Justin and I met up to discuss his startup HeyLets back in late 2011. Took them forever to get the product to market, but maybe the delay was a blessing in disguise. Happy to see him raise this (rather large) seed round.

Well, I should preface by saying that navigating around Tumblr is like wrestling a...honey bunny!? Or more appropriately, it's like wrestling an Outlook bug that is screwing up your incoming mail, templates, archives and much more. In short, no bueno.

"Fury Road was not going to be a movie made for men," he continued. "It was going to be a feminist piece of propaganda posing as a guy flick." It's worth noting that Clarey has not actually seen Fury Road,...
