Here are the 85+ startups that launched at YC’s W19 Demo Day 1

Y Combinator’s incubator classes have gotten huge. With over 200 companies, the Winter 2019 class is by far YC’s largest yet. Meanwhile, the incubator prepares to shift its headquarters from Mountain View to San Francisco. It’s so large, in fact, it’s had to change the way it does Demo Day. Rather than all pitches happening on one stage, they were split across two stages (the “Pioneer” and “Mission” stages) running in parallel. So even if you were in the building, you couldn’t see all the pit...

Charlie Pratt's Prints

I've told this story before I'm sure, but Lord knows where. Many years ago, the photographer John Gossage helped organize a show of photographs by Charles Pratt at the Corcoran Gallery. Charlie, who had died of a heart attack at his gym four years earlier at the age of 50, had been the scion of a wealthy industrialist family. It turned out that John had other connections with the Pratt family, which included helping Charlie's widow Julie publish several books of Charlie's photography. Julie was ...

Flight Review: El Al Business Class (787-9) From New York to Tel Aviv

I have long been fascinated by El Al. Since they became a Qantas codeshare partner in 2017, I have wanted to experience the Israeli national airline. Long had I heard that El Al’s long-haul staples – the trusty Boeing 777-200ER – were not as fresh and comfortable as rivals flying on similar routes. But when El Al took delivery of their first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner in 2017, I was set determined to experience their long-haul product. It only took me two-years! (NB: This photo taken of similar p...

Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp Go Down

Facebook was down for 22 hours yesterday, and its sister apps Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger also saw extensive outages. It was unusual in the sense that the four applications are each distinct codebases, but perhaps not suprising as all four share the same massive infrastructure. The joke is that global worker productivity shoots up whenever Facebook goes down, and you would think that Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp and Messenger are nothing more than distractions in our increasingly digi...

Showing Players “Tough Love” Is Sick and Hurts Hockey

This season, I have watched and read about the verbal abuse shown to young men who play NHL hockey by fans. The prevailing “wisdom” seems to be that fans, because they pay to attend hockey games, have a right to boo players who don’t perform to their expectations. I have heard it called “tough love,” and perhaps some fans even believe that the verbal abuse they direct towards players helps them perform better. That’s crazy. There’s cheering and booing throughout the course of a game, but that is...

Marketing: Agencies to put on your radar (if they aren’t already)

In this business, it is crucial to make sure you are keeping up with the agencies to market to and get on their radar.  When a former co-worker asked his FB connections, which is largely top creative people, for the top agencies to watch and up and coming agencies, I knew it was a list I wanted to research for my clients.  My clients receive weekly/bi-monthly articles about recently awarded accounts (brands) to an agency.  They also receive articles of importance in this business and a marketing...

A New, Ruff Player In ‘There’s A Museum For Everything’

Perk those ears up, sniff the wind, and trot on over to, yes, a new museum for humans’ best friend. When you enter New York’s Museum of the Dog, “right away, you’ll stand before a large screen that invites you to find out what breed of dog you, a human, are — like a BuzzFeed quiz in real life. The screen will take your picture, analyze it and show you the dog you most resemble.” (And no, it’s not a pop-up Instagram-bait museum, despite that entry.) – The Washington Post

A Bit of Texas in Paris

We had lunch at a place in Paris called The Beast. It’s owned by a Frenchman, Tom Abramowicz, who attended a school in New York. His roommate was from Blanco, Texas and when the Frenchman went to his home on a break, he was introduced to barbecue at the famous Salt Lick near Austin, Texas which is one of my personal favorite places. Although he worked for the Louis Vuitton business, his love for barbecue remained and one day he quit his job, went to Texas to train with barbecue masters in Texas,...
