Can you imagine how awesome it would have been to be an entrepreneur in 2014? It was a wide-open frontier! ... Expectations and barriers were low. It was easy to be the first. Oh, if only we realized how possible everything was back then!”

The Secret is for conspiracists to ponder in smugly satisfied disaffected stasis; whereas bad policies, skewed budgets, false assumptions, wrongheaded aspirations, and ugly events are for citizens and activists and civil servants to expose and address and reform for the better. ...

I refuse the plutocratic rationalizations of those anarchists devoted to the fanciful spontaneism of the Invisible Hand, I refuse the complacent paranoia of the anarchists devoted to the fanciful conspiracism of the Hidden Hand, I refuse the pampered loose talk of the anarchists devoted to the fanciful smashing of the Heavy Hand.

We are the Deep State. We need to act like it, take up the long work of democratization in the service of sustainable equity-in-diversity and stop with the excuses already.

At its best, the purpose of enterprise is to evoke the highest human potential. ... Enterprise, by [which] I mean your very hard work and ideas, your talents and gifts, your capacities and skills, the raw stuff of your fragile human potential, has got to be employed with a higher purpose: one that speaks to what it means to be human. ... Develop a view of enterprise that’s not merely instrumental, calculative, and deterministic (“Work, money, stuff, power, status, rinse, repeat”) — but humanistic, constructive, and nuanced. ... How do you want the world to differ — how do you want life to be meaningfully wholer, richer, better?

We’re surrounded by “banks” that blow up economies composed of “corporations” which mostly make you want to submit to lethal injection rather than show up for your soul-sucking “job” so you can deliver another few pennies of “profit” that doesn’t have much real value except how many megabucks were looted today in “markets” that are populated by zombie vampire cyborg robots trading worthless bits of imaginary “money” at lightspeed for the benefit of “shareholders” who are mostly pension “funds” that don’t provide security for anyone but “chief executives” who don’t execute much but the careers of “managers” who don’t manage much but the mass assembly of powerpoints for the production of “goods” that don’t actually benefit anyone to buy with “money” we don’t have anymore to live lives we don’t really want to impress people we mostly hate so our “gross national product” adds up to more and more and more McShit every quarter.

[And] today’s leaders are staunch allies [of these institutions], not their adversaries. ...

We don’t come to supplicate you; to beseech you; to beg you; to petition you. We come to replace you.

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something.

So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.
Neil Gaiman

The internet is still in its infancy. The mobile space is a goddamn zygote. Stand tall, Mr. Dev and Mrs. Entrepreneur; don’t be discouraged. There’s so much more we can do in this space.

I’ll always look at [a] project and judge it by its potential. I’m foolish in the same way we all are with the things we make: I’ll continually chase my tail and believe that the thing I’m producing can be better. I’ll never let it go, because all it ever needs is just one more thing. And then again, then that, again, forever.

But this is a prideful indulgence. It assumes that I am the way these ideas are made better, and discounts that ideas go further when others carry them. Things only endure if they are given space, so these ideas must be set free.

Start every day as a producer, not a consumer.

[When you] start with what you really want to do, distractions [will] start to feel like a waste of time. You check Facebook just to make sure you're not missing anything important directed at you, but scrolling down and reading random stuff in your feed feels like a complete waste of time compared to what you're really doing today.

We are making a thing. ... The process of making something is pretty much always the same. There are moments you find yourself suddenly able to express something you’ve been trying to convey for a very long time. There are moments when you are pretty sure that you are a fake. In moments of clarity, I remind myself that these are the well known features of the landscape of realizing a large project. The wrestling match between belief and disbelief is the actual matter of making things. If I am not coming up against these complexities, chances are I am not facing a big enough challenge.

There's no "finished," just more acceptable states of incompleteness. Done is a beautiful idea, it it is also impossible.
