Some weeks ago, someone asked me what were my favorite product experiences. I paused. As much as I enjoy trying new products nothing struck me as particularly delightful, at least not in a way that made me acknowledge it.

Selfie time at Facebook Venues last night — yes, Virtual Reality is not immune to that

I am not sure how we are going to look back at this period once we gain distance. So far, it seems that we can only look at it from a dark angle. In excruciating detail, in loop, leave-no-misery-behind fashion the news broadcasters explore all the drama that the pandemic…


I have finished reading your book in three days. I couldn’t drop it. It is just so much what you went through in order to launch your venture, Starling Bank.
