Expert Advice: How to Choose Paint Like a Pro

The last time I chose a paint color I was twelve. It’s a story that might sound familiar: After much campaigning, my parents let me paint a wall of my bedroom in a color of my choosing (so long as it was light enough to paint over eventually). As this story often goes, I picked a color I liked—a sunny yellow—and spent an afternoon rolling it on, slap-dash, with a friend. What I failed to consider is that liking a color and choosing a paint color for a room are two entirely different things. The ...

Competing To Win

This question came up in the comments yesterday: It got me thinking about whether a competitive investment is a better investment. Most of the time we are in a competitive process when we consider an investment. But that is not always the case. Sometimes, we are the only investor at the table. That could be because we got there before anyone else. Or it could be because nobody else wanted to invest. We have had big wins in all of these scenarios. I am not big on social proof. I think it is amon...

RDMD attacks rare diseases with data mined from health records

Strike When The Iron Is Hot

I introduced a young friend of one of my children to a colleague in the tech business last month. The young friend took a day to reply to the email introduction and by then the introduction had gone cold. Happily the introduction resurfaced this week and something may still come of it. That story reminds me of another. It was 1996 and Flatiron Partners had just relocated to the Flatiron district of NYC (we really had no choice but to locate there). A friend invited me to lunch at Gramercy Tavern...
