Chamath at LAUNCH

Chamath Palihapitiya is a beast.  He’s most notably a key member of the executive team that brought Facebook over the 1B user mark.  More recently, he’s been running The Social+Capital Partnership and acting as part-owner and board member for the Golden State Warriors (you know, the NBA team with six losses after 62 games).

He also brings the heat anytime he speaks publicly, and was by far my favorite speaker at this year’s LAUNCH Festival.  Topics covered include sports, politics, morality, gambling, tech, and beyond…but Chamath’s comments on diversity in tech and the dusty, overly white hierarchy of venture capital steal the show.

He’s an influencer worth following and definitely one that will get you thinking about the big things.

Radio Headspace Is A Thing

radioheadspace

Each member of the DMR team incorporates a meditation practice into their daily routine.  The return on investment for just 10-15 minutes is too good to pass up, and Headspace is one of the apps that has made this habit a very easy add.

As a major podcast fanboy — Tim Ferriss, a16z, TWIST, etc. — I was blindsided when I discovered that the Headspace team is 50+ episodes into Radio Headspace, a podcast covering anything and everything related to our mental capacity and the journey within.

One of the latest episodes — #54 — brings in three different authors that have been commissioned to write books for The School of Life, an amazing project created by one of the group’s favorite authors, Alain de Botton.

I’m overwhelmed by this nexus of amazing people and projects…and while I can’t yet speak to the overall quality of Radio Headspace, I certainly intend to check it out.

You should too.

Inception Notes

The DMR Group was created with a simple goal: unite ambitious individuals for whom self-education and self-development is of paramount importance.  Some notes from the brainstorm that led to our creation…
