Saw Spectre on Opening Night Friday--just as I've seen every Bond movie since Goldeneye in 1995.
James Bond always wins in the end--but do you? And why? I wrote this blog post about trying to suss out the reason behind your success and figuring out whether you can replicate it.
The hard thing about making a Bond movie is that there are so many layers of criteria you get measured against. There's the question of where it ranks in all the films, where Daniel Craig ranks against other Bonds, where he ranks against himself, what this plot does to the trajectory of the character, the decision to bring back existing characters from movies past, etc., etc.
Seems like it can never just be a fun time.
Well, I had fun. I'm glad I can just enjoy a new installment in my favorite series. There's a lot to like. It maybe feels a little forced at times, and I'm not exactly sure where it leaves the franchise in its story arc, but I'm sure they'll figure it out. As a set, I think it rounds out the Craig films as the best offerings out of any of the actors (with Never Say Never Again and Diamonds are Forever dragging down Connery, and I never really liked You Only Live Twice for that matter, either).
And if you don't really care about James Bond--here's some tech for you...
Tech dudes are known as being t-shirt and jeans guys, but sometimes we need to dress up to pitch. Frankly, we should probably dress up more. For me, I feel like I'm hindered by wrinkles and shirts that never quite fit right. I have a whole closet full of "wrinkle free" shirts that aren't just wrinkled, but they're stained around the collar from bike sweat.
That's when I heard about Mizzen + Main from the Tim Feriss podcast.
Their shirts absolutely do not wrinkle. I tested this. I crumpled their dress shirt in a ball and threw it into my backpack for four days. Took it out, put it right on, and bam, no wrinkles. It's pure magic. Plus, no sweat stains of any kind.
If there ever was a must add to any founder's waredrobe, this would be it. It's the most I've ever paid for a shirt, but it's totally worth it in saved ironing time.
For female founders, if I find similar non-wrinkle attire, happy to post it and share, as I imagine this is a problem across genders. I can only speak to solutions intended for me as a customer.
You know who knows a lot about wine? Philip James, founder of every single tech company in the wine space. Seriously. Wine tech doesn't even exist without Philip. Trust me, I looked it up on Crunchbase.
Their special introductory half case is $59.95 – 50% off retail price.
Do you see the Bond theme building here? First the movie, then dress shirts, now wine.
And now, I've got a special discount on an Aston Martin.
Yeah, you wish.

Most startups don't fail at building a product. Most startups fail at getting traction. TRACTION is a bestselling book with over 175 5-star Amazon reviews that is helping businesses and projects of all kinds get traction.
It's written by Gabe Weinberg, the founder of DuckDuckGo--which would be a unicorn if it actually needed further venture funding. The company has been up and to the right from the moment Union Square Ventures did their A round, and has been profitable for a long time.
Now that's traction--and a lot harder to do than just getting traction from multiple VC growth rounds.

This is a special meetup in addition to our normal meetup. Thanks to Dato for organizing and hosting at Spotify! Abstract: Log data is everywhere. You have petabytes of it, with streams collected from every device. But are you using it to learn more about your users or your system? In this presentation I will walk through leveraging pattern mining along with ML techniques to identify frequent patterns that exist in your logs. I apply these techniques to a real-world application, developing the 'Frequently Bought Together' feature we have all seen on Amazon. After going through the intuition in the frequent pattern mining algorithm, I will show how you don't need to be an expert in order to get results quickly. The entire presentation will be delivered from an iPython Notebook and written in Python, using Dato for performing the frequent pattern mining, model training, and deployment of the frequently bought together service. Speaker Bio: Rajat Arya, Sr. Product Manager, Dato. After a dozen years of building scalable systems in AWS, Microsoft, AddThis, and Dato, Rajat recently started working closely with data scientists, helping them build intelligent applications using Dato.
