But the sort of posturing from one of the key elements of the beginning of entries and horowitz Which is their motto that all the general partners here need to have been ceos like half of the first like five or six general partners. At never been see is right. And there's a lot of credibility behind that they were strong operational leaders executives. But yeah absolutely like jeff. Jordan led the pay pal acquisition around. Pay pal within ebay. Like i would take him on my board but yeah that's funny. Well this good point before we get into like the ninety six ninety seven ninety eight continuation of the browser wars.
