Fun meeting all y’all!!! 🐥🐳🐼Rando followup in reverse chronological order

Brady. He’s a happy puppy.

Wharton. Park Hyatt. It used to be aHyatt. Now it’s a Le Meredian Hotel. #BrainFart. Wharton used to hold classes with open bar. That bar at the Starwood Hotel is still branded Wharton. It made 💵💵 to build a beautiful building on the water.

MIT. Kresge. Another brain-fart. Kresge is confusing because it’s also at Stanford. Kresge hosted vc65. It doubled as an engineering distribution hack in Boston at Copley Center because vc65 led into NVCA’s National Conference. [What Better Place to Pitch VCs Than When They Are 3000 of em Meeting A $5 Uber Ride Away].

Sales. For an engineer to try sales. By selling other people’s junk, engineers emotionally protect themselves by having rejection be compartmentalized.

I really like the MIT-Stanford “tunnel” that was right next to an Ike’s Sandwich shop at Huang Engineering. A lot of Cambridge hung out there… it was an MIT center within a Stanford-Engineering-Center-at-Huang-Engineering

Crossing Chasms of innovation.

Setting bell curves with #ENGR145 at Stanford and MIT (like the Bill Aulet effort)
