As you know, reality sucked last week.
It's not surprising that an augmented reality game is now the fasted growing app of all time. I'll let you know if I wind up accidently hitting any wondering Pokemon zombies in the street with my bike this week.
I hope they alter the gameplay so that catching them all means actually conversing with fellow humans.
On that note about the suckage... Over the last year or so I've been doing a lot of thinking about my place in my industry and in my society. As I wrap up fundraising for my second fund, I've been very conscious about power dynamics, the assumptions people make about me, that I make about them, and the story I tell about myself.
I like telling the story of the local guy who didn't have advantages like a wealthy family or Ivy league schooling. That narrative makes me feel better about myself and my accomplishments.

You may have used Docracy to get free and open sourced legal docs before.
A lot of people do.
Currently, the site is able to pay for its servers, but not much else--and the founders are a bit tired of caretaking. It gets a fair amount of traffic and it would be a great opportunity for someone looking to take it to the next level who could administer it.
Docracy is running on a Java stack on a rails like framework - https://www.playframework.com/ It's currently running on Heroku/AWS and requires minimal maintenance other than occasional removal of spam documents and light support work.
If you have the resources to work on it, and you'd like to take it over, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Otherwise, it may shut down by the end of the year.
One of my portfolio companies, Talla, is building a digital assistant that works on Slack and Hipchat. Talla is a basic question and answering system. You can think of Talla like an active wiki, that shows up as a conversational bot in Slack and Hipchat, and captures all the knowledge latent in employee conversations and workflows.
Many of the same questions get asked over and over in companies. Talla can answer them and that saves time, promotes better alignment, and becomes a system of record for functional knowledge transfer.
Their first product is about to launch, and targets employee onboarding. They are looking for beta testers, so if you plan to hire at least 10 employees this year, and would like to try it out, please let me know and I'll connect you. If you use Confluence, that's even better as Talla can automatically ingest Confluence data and make it available via the digital assistant.

This talk will cover a broad range of topics from how successful computer vision systems are built using neural networks, why there is an explosion in real world application powered by these systems, to how Clarifai makes it easy for you to build a new generation of intelligent applications. We will take a look at a visualization technique introduced by Matthew Zeiler during his PhD at NYU with Rob Fergus which allows you to understand what each layer of the neural networks have learned in order to predict concept in images. Then, multiple applications enabled by this technology will be demonstrated, including a free photo organization product by Clarifai called Forevery. Matthew Zeiler received a PhD from NYU in machine learning and image recognition with the pioneers of deep learning and convolutional neural networks. His research produced the top 5 results in the 2013 ImageNet classification competition.
Getting everyone on the same page is vital for the success of any agile effort. Systematic, visual representations – maps of the user experience -- help align team towards a common goal. You’re probably already familiar with mapping techniques already out there: journey maps, experience map, user story mapping and more. But how do we apply these techniques in remote teams? The shared understanding that visualizations offer seems to get lost when interacting through Slack, skype and the like. For sure, better tools can help remote collaboration, but ultimately distributed UX design requires a new set of skills. Jim will first outline a general framework for mapping experiences, highlighting the collaborative nature of the activity. Then he'll examine how agile and creative work can be done effectively with distributed teams. Presenters: Jim Kalbach is a noted author, speaker, and instructor in user experience design, information architecture, and strategy. He is currently Head of Customer Success and Education at MURAL, an online whiteboard solution.
