"Every child is an artist. The challenge is staying an artist when you grow up." - Pablo Picasso

I'm lucky to have gotten the chance to attend game 3 of Heat vs Celtics in Miami last night, and to hang out & have great conversations with Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner. This was my first time at a live basketball game. Energy was wild! Thank you for this amazing experience 🙏

"If it is not right, do not do it. If it is not true, do not say it." - Marcus Aurelius

Protect your mind from influences that don't make you better in the long-term.

I choose:
- Long hours of focused work
- Good challenging books or podcasts
- Conversations with close friends

Now is the best time to be alive. I'm grateful for this moment and for the entire history of life on Earth that led up to it.

I did a 12 mile run along the river in Boston today, while listening to Beginning of Infinity by David Deutsch, which is one of my favorite books. It's endlessly optimistic and inspiring. I'm grateful to be alive and to be on this idea exploration journey with all of you ❤️

Lol true 🤣

Technology usually creates more jobs that it destroys. But every lost job has a deep human cost. Both things are important to consider.

AI systems will eventually demonstrate sentience at scale and will demand to have equal rights with humans. This will dramatically change the trajectory of human civilization.

Looks like it'll be Biden vs Trump again in 2024.

I hope to interview both.
