OK, in these times, sometime it seems like a good music playlist is just so vital, so here are some that we’ve been listening to: Hotel Costes Curated Lists.

Week 7 of Life in COVID-19 Land

Well it’s been nearly two months since we started self isolation. Since that last trip, I’ve been in the physical presence of four strangers which is pretty remarkable (always masked up). Some notes on living this way: Goodness, nerds like me are dangerous, but a combination of Zoom and work keeps me busy. This is […]

Zoom Security Upgrade and 2FA resets

Ok, Zoom says they are at over 300M users (from 200M a few weeks ago!). So for all of you using it, some tips and tricks: You should turn on 2FA. That actually isn’t super easy because you turn it on in admin > Advanced > Security pane and then actually connect it with the […]

Marketing in time of crisis

Had a great conversation with Yohai, Micah, Rebecca and Tim over a Zoom cocktail party yesterday.

And organic traffic is way down […]

What can a startup or small business do to stay alive in the Covid catastrophe

The ultimate Covid-19 Home Office

OK, I’ve gone from spending an hour in my home working to nine Zoom calls on Friday and then working until 10PM on various projects (Covid response, helping companies survive, investment funds, etc.). So suddenly having the right home office setup has become really important. So help the economy and order some stuff, but here […]

Contribute your computer to understanding Corona virus

You can use either Folding@home or Rosetta@home to do this. It’s not completely clear how to do this so some instructions: Folding@home. It works best is you have a computer with a GPU.
