Goals for tech should be people in 2070 saying - “I‘d rather be a peasant today than a king 50 yrs ago. They had dirty air, uncontrolled viruses, were dying prematurely and trapped on one planet. Things were awful.”

We break our own rules. More anti concentrated bets. LPs want GPs to manage risk. We take calculated risks. Place bold bets. Truly global. Complete differentiation. Awesome stories on global #VC from @asenkut & @felicis invested in @Rovio @Shopify @Adyen #SVBGlobalConnect https://t.co/l8bbBznOGt

If 2010 decade was about rise of new/seed VC funds - Felicis, Initialized, Costanoa, Uncork, Freestyle, etc. (too many to list, don't @ me!) - then this forthcoming decade may be about LPs backing individuals w/ huge funds who compete directly w/ traditional VC firms @ A/B stage.

Great article on @wsj by @aatilley - in the age of record cloud deployment; it's like being in a house with 100/1000 rooms, lights are on and water is on but no one can tell where there is waste... https://t.co/QbOcCYKMgV
