Apple’s Tim Cook on Steve Jobs (Sept. 12, 2014) | Charlie Rose

"His office is still left as it was."

Fast Company’s “Letter From The Editor,” June 2007 "We’ve just moved to 7 World Trade Center, a site destroyed on 9/11 and rebuilt as one of the first gold-level green-certified office buildings in New York. We overlook the Hudson River and Wall Street— and the pit where the Twin Towers once stood. I can see their footprint from my desk. This is my first letter to readers as editor of this magazine, and my second issue. I didn’t choose our new site, but I’m proud of it, proud of our owner and our CEO for having the faith and the foresight to embrace this venue as one of possibility in the wake of tragedy. Not everyone is thrilled about the real estate we now occupy. My wife was anxious when I first told her about our new address, reminded of that terrible day in 2001. Some staffers at our company chose not to move with us; the memories were too harsh. But I feel differently. For a magazine like Fast Company, there is no more fitting location for our headquarters: a place that is all about rebirth and potential and the promise of tomorrow.” — Robert Safian, Editor (Photo by iamrobbiejones)

Nearly every company goes through life-threatening moments… it’s so common that there is an acronym for it, WFIO, which stands for ‘We’re Fucked, It’s Over.’ - Ben Horowitz

MG wrote a post yesterday about scoffing in the technology world. It’s a great read, especially going into the new iPhone and “iWatch” launch today.

It also reminded me of all the scoffing I’ve heard in my time as an investor these 9+ years. Things like:

The Huge Dinosaur That Scoffed At T-Rex

Eric Mack on Dreadnoughtus (great name), the largest dinosaur found yet:

To reach its gargantuan size, Dreadnoughtus would have had to have spent most of its time eating large amounts of plants. The dinosaur’s body was comparable to the size of a house, with a 37-foot-long neck balanced by a 30-foot-long tail. Lacovara says it likely would have spent hours just standing in one place and eating everything it could reach.

The one found in Argentina was 85 feet long and 65 tons — and not yet fully grown.

It is a funny thing about life - if you refuse to accept anything but the best you very often get it.
