Great piece by Sam Altman. I haven’t read or known much about him, but it’s clear why PaulG picked him to lead YCombinator.

Off late, I’ve been reading a lot about how startup equity & venture capital works. This is a very complicated and important issue, not only for a “fair” financial outcome some years down the line, but also for the organization to setup the right cultural code & set everyone for success.

This is an important topic to think about whether you’re considering joining startups, are an investor, lawyer & specially if you’re an entrepreneur/co-founder. I feel a longer post is due on this topic.

Comics coming to Kindle soon! Great move actually. This will be targeted well towards the young demographic nicely.

Just the other day I was thinking how Kindle is a great/economical tablet for kids. They’re mostly interested in games or other entertainment. They don’t care about ads or latency so much. You can care less if it broke a bit here n there ;)

Moving textbooks from paper to digital are great, but it’s so “educational” & noble… Most kids might not care about it so much as parents do. Give them some comics to read and they’re happy traveling cross country without a sound! :)
