Now, in the middle of this crazy time, I’m sure you are all worried about the same thing I am: What your hair is going to look like when it’s over.

In a bit of a surprise twist, YC also moved Demo Day forward one week citing accelerated pacing from investors. Alas, this meant switching up its plan for each company to have ...

This Week in Photography: “Going South-Big Sur”

  I tracked Storm Dennis for a week. Chiara had hit the UK and Northern Europe hard, right before I left for Amsterdam, and I was concerned. Schiphol Airport had been interrupted, with many flights delayed, and there was flooding across England. So yeah, I was worried. Throw in the wall-to-wall scare coverage about the coronavirus outbreak, and I was more than worried. I was crap-my-pants-frightened as I left my house for the big trip.
