    Wow, Reid Hoffman…I like you…you have changed my perception of VC’s being evil at their core and should be avoided at (almost) all costs.

    It is so nice to see a person of influence having an engineer/builder philosophy. Sure, make some money, but also ask: is this right, is this ethical, is this within the spirit of all parties understanding at the time the contract was signed.

    I should make a video, until then:
