At Disrupt, YC’s Anu Hariharan, Initialized’s Garry Tan, and GGV’s Hans Tung will tell you how to raise money in a dumpster fire

As this pandemically perverse year draws to a close, there’s one thing that’s certain. Everything has changed — at least a little bit. The U.S. is still grappling with a virus that it has yet to control and a vaccine, once it’s discovered and proven to be effective will take months to be distributed throughout the population. That means the virtual, socially distanced reality that has become the new normal will remain that way for at least a little bit longer. But what does that mean for startup...

Power of illusion: Twins season begins as both distraction and reminder

When you weren't really paying attention this weekend, or conversely you were able to lose yourself in the moment, the Twins' season-opening series win over the White Sox felt close to normal. With the game on in the background and the white noise of a crowd providing a familiar hum — while keeping one eye on proceedings while working on other things — things felt familiar. When Jake Cave hit a long fly ball to left on Sunday, barely clearing the wall, I felt a good 30 seconds of genuine basebal...

Since I loved the show so much, I was glad to speak with series co-creator Justin Roiland, who also co-created Rick and Morty, to discuss how working on Sola...
