Google Inc in Mountain View knows and uses snail mail via the USA postal service. I tweeted about Marie Williams here:

Snail mail is just another tool a Jedi uses #jba flip.it/01CzC

Amazon Inc. has a secret partnership with the USPS. Amazon + USPS equals = “USPS Innovations”. They deliver on Sundays

eBay Inc in San Jose has a special partnership with the US postal service. They allow eBay sellers deep discounts, include tracking numbers and print postage on any printer.

Now, you as a baby entrepreneur can use the USA postal service like a Jedi knight uses a light sabre. You as a pre entrepreneur can use stamps like an athlete uses a dumbbell.

As the primary curator of ENGR145, I can give you my expert testimony that snail mail works and that using a sequence of 24, 49c stamps works super well. The net venture capital effects that aren’t understood by your average YC potential.

First my tech resume via two legendary YouTube vids

Here are example envelopes (more are available for $599.95 called the “31 Envelopes System”

So weird University of California’s using a Los Angeles post office box in the same location as American Express

Skip the $599.95 cost and google, “How to do what Duck9 does for 599.95 without having to pay Duck9 or Larry Chiang 599.95”. You costs drop to below $20.

Heck. You can sell the 599.95 product at a price greater than your cost…, but that is a different blog post

Larry Chiang’s ESPN mail

All the tools.

I use an old tool Re playing cards to teach “What They DO Teach You at Stanford Engineering”

Jedi stuff make you curious?
