"They looked back at that. And they said adele. I must have been a dell and then everyone was like okay. Would you like your rainbow. See vice a joke pun. A hyperlink sound how i mean. I think i think one thing my dad is always telling me and my mom too and like you you wanna man twice a child and so what i mean by that is like your boy a child and you go to become a man and so the things you do as a man ultimately will reflect on what happens when you become net child again when you get too old to take care of yourself around. That's probably that's a so. We talked about this a few weeks ago. or lindsey. you know proposed a theory that the reason pete davidson and kayla cuevas previous relationships fell apart was because they fell for each other on the set of that movie meet cute and i think we called it a meat horrible and now it's actually getting coverage in the tabloids. Here's a story from oprah magazine. Do that they're honest with the same rumor. That era it is a little. It's still it's not. This is like if if my rumor that i said was like the the bottom of barrel like rumor this is like iran is a tabloid speak. So here's what the source said about. Pete davidson kelly quaco. Pete thought he'd be a lot more cut up about phoebe than he was. But the vibe he's got going with coco has helped him dust himself off and not mope about the past plus a lot of people think he in keighley are way more compatible than he ever was with arianna kate or most of his excess address keighley's high energy levels. They're having a blast. A lot of people think now. A lot of people think that now located cocoa that he ever was with phoebe. Ray promo for their movie. And that's all. I have to say and the other stuff is. I mean who are these. There is no way that movie is going to be good. What do you mean. There's zero percent chance that movie is going to now. I think it's gonna be great. I think it's going to be a disaster. Oh i don't mind fantastic as much as i. Like catalina. i'm now a fan. i'm a coconut. I know that. I am equipment now but like worried about this. If you're a true coconut you would have faith in her rom coms. I think she could pull off a good rom com pete davidson We'll see but has madge has the magic about him. We would not still be talking about pete davidson. If he wasn't at least kind of a curiosity he's a keys. Curiosity right jordana. Brewster wore her engagement ring for the first time. Because she's about to be married to maze. Mason morfitt and jordana brewster name are going strong. And what does mason dugan. He's just a he's like a businessman. Oh he's the ceo of value act capital right right right. That does a lot for me soon to be a morfitt well. She wrote j. b. soon to be j. b. m. which is interpreted as soon to be a morfitt. She's going to be more fit. I love that she's married. Guy named morph it and taking his last name or like vaguely taking his last name. Jordana brewster more. I can't wait til she's in a movie on the poster. It says jordana brewster more not gonna make a movie with that name. There's no way they're going to say it's brewster or we're not casting you. We can't with the martian. Here's the people exclusive so i just wanna read the headline that we can end the relationship segments..

"I'm never gonna forget the photo. Aunt ants dead posted of renee zellweger on his instagram. Are they instagram official now. Is that what this means. That just means we're gonna talk about some relationships really quickly. The first one instagram official. I gotta say hate this category of confirmation. It's very grim official yet. It's like it's usurped. The is usurp the comment. Which the or the the kind of release that i want. The more official release where they give statement instead. It's just we posted pick a positive measure. Gray yeah you know. She doesn't have an instagram only. He does so he's the one who posted it I wonder whose more famous right there's no caption either. It's just it's just a loved up. It's loved up selfie vicki. Takeshi looks she looks to reeled. I'm happy for her unhappy for venezuela shea unhappy for kim whitley. i'm not happy for ason butterfield. Okay that's the recap of. I'm also having for adele heavy for her. She awesome winnipeg official them dating rich. Paul who rich. Paul is a thought she was dating someone else but maybe she wasn't or maybe she thought because people like i saw up in the gallery young. He had got the tattoos all over his body and everyone was like. I guess that's who it is days later. She was spotted with rich. Paul courtside because he is a basketball agent and he's actually kind of he's big deal and that's a good match for her. I feel like he And they're cute they. She's been so private about everything for the past like five years. That is sort of surprising that we've gotten these. I do feel like it together. Adele loves to like go out. I felt she's private but she loves to go out. Does that make sense. She she wants to be private but she also wants to see and be seen. You know what i mean. But she seems fun. She's offering she and she loves to have fun and loves to go to a party right and so it feels it's very To categorize her as private as wrong. I feel like you get a you'd get the interviews difference between three doesn't do interviews and private right but i do feel like she can't even if she doesn't do interviews and isn't really out there. You still get a sense that she's really fun. Which i think is kind of a magical thing with adele is that you still like see glimpses of her and like she looks fun to which it when she went to pieces with jennifer lawrence. What's annoying. i'm rolling my eyes at it. But that's fun. She's fun so now she is. You know out and about with rich paul. Rich paul is lebron james agent literally and like from the very start to the point where lebron james is obviously a superstar and rich. Paul has kind of road that we've alongside him. Picking up other superstars along the way. There's a really long profile of him in the from the june seventh issue. That is kind of just gets the whole thing but it was. They have been professional partners since literally. Lebron james was like like drafted into the nba. Right so i feel like he's must be a sports them. I'm just going to speak for sports people and call uh sports then because he just seems solich integral to the pro. I think he's definitely sports them. Because i think like again not knowing about sports like agents are weirdly like talked about their like celebrities within that world as well that you would know. He's like he's writing a memoir. You know like he is agents and managers. They kind of have to having a high profile is helpful can be helpful to their business. You know to make them look appealing to give them that sort of allure feel like in sports agents and managers do more scouting of young people in. It's more talked about from the beginning versus like actors where you don't really hear about like. Oh this manager picked up this actor like you just really. Don't yell with celebrity managers. You hear the celebrity manager and agent stories are usually. They are dropping their agents or their agents. Drop them your all. Can you believe the same agent for twenty five years. Oh that's us we like. That's of yeah so one thing that i still find funny and i don't know how to put these pieces together. This is back when this was when we were when we both individually read this profile and whenever it was june that was kind of right when his relationship with adele was quote on pablo as a little. So it was sort of like. It's like a where it's like. Where's adele wears it l. We need a dell. We haven't seen a dylan so long like this guy is not a celebrity in the adele as a celebrity. So it's just sort of strange. That like maybe. It's just a coincidence. But i was trying to rack my brain as to figuring out like. Is there something about the timing. Could this timing have been good for both of them. And i'm like i don't i don't think so. I think they were just working on this profile and it happened to coincide with him well in the profile. There's a moment there's a scene. Where one afternoon beverly hills pawn. I walked his living room with mendelssohn. She was over yesterday. Paul said middleton clarified whom he meant dropping the name of a major popstar doing what he asked hanging out. Paul replied why are you hanging out. Mendelsohn ask why. Not paul replied. I wasn't sure whether this exchange was for my benefit. Paul said i'm dating single. Put that in the story. He laughed for the first time all day. So like the writer is even like but the writers even like. Where are you talking about this in front of me. Like i'm standing right here. Like why would you just say this. Obviously you know what. I'm here four. I mean that was the first like leak of it but no one some down until they were spotted together then..

"I think having a baby was a kind of rebirth for me like artistically it just like i don't know being a mother feels weird to say i don't identify with that word is also really weird because says claire but he doesn't like mama which is so. I'm like how are you like. Maybe he can like sense my distaste for the woodward mother which i don't even know i have a distaste for it because i like respected with i just i don't i can't identify with it. Where lee grimes went to the met ball and then told an interviewer that her son calls her claire. Not mother. clare isn't even a name. That i it is another name. We have many names for her. Now grimes claire and the baby has gone with claire. I do and don't want video of this. It also is funny because the baby's name is also highly disputed so no one's really got clear no really clear handle and what they're being called people refers to the baby as ex. That is what grimes alana call him. If you can identify with the word mother that the subsidy would be claire. Can you imagine this like baby. Walking into claire. It's very boss baby. I have to say your baby you a diaper you know who else wears diapers astronauts a nascar drivers that goldie efficiency templeton. The average toddler spends what forty five hours a year on the potty spirit. I mean i'm surprised that the baby says claire doesn't just sort of like mentally project. The word claire to claire via their headsets glare. If you click on a video called. Grimes gets ready for met gala from vogue and clicked play. Would you expect us to be the first line. You heard here it comes. I am hoping to die on mars. Honestly yeah. I would expect that to be honest. I am hoping to die on mars. She selena gomez grimes. I always forget what their voices are like. And then you hear them speaking. You're like oh ram's incredible like there. Is something really a fascinating about watching. Grimes get the celebrity treatment in this video. Where she's like getting ready for the mccullough and it's like she has all these assistance and designers and she's being interviewed by vogue and it's like this woman should the idea that she's like getting this type of kind of narrative around her for this event. Like it's it's hilarious. It's so just know how to react to it. I don't know how to react to it. It doesn't work. No one who's watching. This video has heard a lick of her music. You know it's a so imagine anna wintour listening to like genesis. All right anna have dinner party. What would be the background music. He would play like sometimes. I'll go for like sixties big band pop songs. Or sometimes it's dean martin taylor like evening off with conversation and then when we move onto a more informal part of the evening and into music and maybe this will cause you to forgive me for my answer to the Cats question i definitely would choose fearless maybe read and then of course lover. Speaking of calling your mother clare. Vanessa got a new job and she's really excited. The new job is leading. Ncis hawaii which is one of the ncaa spinoffs. it's shea who is married to nicholas shea. Who is leaving us. Probably now more like accomplished the nicholas in terms of link link resume which is funny more culturally relevant than nicklaus one hundred percent. Yeah so vanessa. Lachey got cast as the lead in. Ncis hawaii which the new spin off of the very popular ncis series. They're going to hawaii. Can you tell me what. Ncis stands for lindsay. New cops is served okay. Is that your final answer. Can you.

Wasn't she doing like just like a a business program or something and she was taking writing classes because she wanted to be a writer. Fair abraham thinks the pelican brief is like a pelican and underwear. Okay so i. This is going to be a problem. Maybe she wants to go to law school as you can see harvard. Maybe it's a retroactive. Maybe she feels like she needs justice and so she leaving but she lives in california. Why would you go to law school. Why would you. Why would you just not do that. Kim kardashian did you hire someone to help you. Pass the whatever the bars. Very abraham knows about two colleges. One is harvard one is yale. She went to undergrad. Which was the art institute of fort lauderdale. we'd good for fair abraham. She really knows how to maintain attention. I mean this story has now gone on for weeks and it was literally like barely a blip it or should deserves barely a blip and yet i'm give i've given it my full attention for a while.

"I'm saying her son does drugs. My point is that the rap slammed her for misquoting. Jesus so me. She loves to wrap member when she wrapped right at the beginning of the pandemic when we were all like. We're just going to be indoors few months. Everything's really cute now. Like here's rita wilson singing hip hop hurry to i'd give props to hip hop rio bolsa as an aside. She did raise money with that thing that did raise money so he was also the face of. That's gonna hope it for some time. You know she was the first person to get coveted one of the first the second. She was patient zero. So you know the emmys complaining last week that like we wanted to watch the bma's but it's impossible to watch. the emmys. Were so easy to watch. And i was like you do this. Well they were really kinda just weird. The shows that swept were like not shows. I care like i was like ted lasso. The queen's gambit and the crown swept like could you think of a more like kind of just bland kind of swath of television. You know no. I can't Yeah a camp. There were some fun writing awards. Yeah no that's true. I mean hacks. One and and mayor got its mayor. Got some people. Some emmys kayla cole. One but michaela coal one for like. What did she went for writing right. Yeah all the actors. Were like ted lasso to lan mayor. I could barely watch the vietnamese. But i could talk about him for six hours like i could watch the emmys and i really don't want to talk about them for more than three minutes as had had layers to them. There was fashion and stuff and new people and people. I didn't know and young people and emmys kind of felt everybody. There i was like. Oh you're here you look at the. At least the emmys are responsible for one of the funniest tweets. I'd seen in a really long time. Which was from variety and it said at variety on twitter tweeted the handmaid's tale sets record for most losses in a season congrats. Dale congrats wasn't there but most of course because they weren't her ear about to lose. And it's going to be an record or they said where's your vaccination card and she was like oh I don't think i'm gonna win. I'm not gonna come yet. There wasn't as much speculation about who wasn't at the emmys as there was about. Who wasn't at the vm as gala. So interesting even though like literally in the opening remark cedric. the entertainer was like everyone here is faxed like he said that he also did a joke about the fly so remove about the actual fly that landed on mike pence's head from like what eons ago that felt like a century ago. You know what happened more recently. As in yesterday yeah. Very abraham said that she was going to yale law school or applied or or applied for told us last time so he got transcripts to enroll at a new school. I'm just wondering. Have you done that. Have you picked a school again. Exciting time so like law firms are coming up We have so many options as law students to schools like yells reached out. I'm so i am. I'm just so pumped because i have all these choices for law school and Yeah so. I don't know if i'm going to stay here on the west coast or the east coast. I do have to say after the harvard debacle. I think the west coast is more diverse and appropriate for like inclusion. Better weather So we'll see what happens about that. We got the former teen mom star at debbie. Durken's eko looks lounge event we spent. That's where you find people where where do you find. Various abraham if not debbie durkan zico. Luckily we were looking for any fair abraham because we want to talk to her. We found her at debbie. Durken's eko lugs lounge event at the beverly hills hilton. It's one of those. It's like an emmy it's one of those like emmy get the giveaways events so it's emmy adjacent and you and you show up and then you get stuff just one of those ass about the emmys. The gift deamer the gifting things the gifting channels or remember last year..

"The celebrities. You don't. i'm bobby finger. I'm lindsey weber and we're going on tour come get tickets to see us live all around the country well in many places in the country who weekly dot us and you'll hear us saying we're singing. We are yeah. Here's a clip from one of our rehearsal so much tv. And this rap wouldn't be complete to eric. I'm not sure. I guess i should've called that wrapping. But can i call wrapping like gladys going on with like the wave at like the the the chasm between how pe- real people think about rita wilson. And how hollywood thinks rita wilson leg. And how rita wilson thinks about rita. Well that's a whole other. How tom hanks thinks about rita wilson. There's a weird like disconnect there. Is she like darling that we that hollywood thinks she is. I think people just feel so well about not to define a woman based on her husband. But i think this is an exception of it's like. Can't tom nina so much. he's he hasn't anomaly. People love him so much and he sort of and if he's not really accessible. It's sort of like well. we can get rita. Rita always answers her phone. Rita is always down. I just feel like it's funny. Where she keeps showing up and she keeps wrapping. And then you have like compare that to her like wrapping son. Who never comes up and is almost weirdly like on the same track as her but nobody wants to talk about him. It's just funny. That rita wilson sorry to read up is like just like not iconic at all and not only is she not iconic just like from a very like she really run of the mill perspective of celebrity. Like she's not famous for television. So why is he at the emmys. She's not really famous for movies. She's i guess famous for singing but compared to everyone else at the grammys. She's way down the list and what doesn't really hangs his wife. Yes so what are you doing at the emmys but kind of what is she doing anywhere you know why not. I guess readers gonna wrap just a friend. Even the other people are singers. Like they got the guy the the who the white guy who has the show that everyone's like it's actually really good like what's that. Show called take little dicky. What's it called dan. It's called like dave but it's like dave's actually really good at least. I know that he is a rapper. Like rita wilson. Yeah i guess she's always down they always love to trot her out. You know as like someone. It's just very strange to me with the whole like we're not going to talk about your son legua. When you're both kind of out here wrapping like i just. It's very. It's very weird like why. Why did we let her get away with this and she is. I guess a list. She's just like one of the kookiest people a-list you know and she's ayla simply because she's tom hanks wife. Yeah that sounds so nasty to say. But i i think it's true. No i mean when you break it down. I don't know that. I'd say she's good at wrapping. She also case of the rap reported she was She wore it. Tom ford suit and she was on the red carpet talking to kerama. Oh and by the way the as calling him cromwell brown and. I thought we dropped that brown months ago. So we've got a needs to correct needs to correct. He's just caro- kerama. Also as i was saying his name i was like i'm not gonna say brown like everyone knows it's rahmo as okay. We'll give him that. She said she was asked why she chose to go outside. The fashion norm which is by the way going outside the fashion. Norman example is wearing pants and not address. It's two thousand and twenty one gay. Just let's let's remind ourselves that and she said because i don't drop molly iraq. Tom ford so she was trying to quote jay z. She got like pretty close pretty close. Yeah it's pop. Molly not drop molly. I don't know like you can't really drop molly. You drop acid. I guess you'd pop molly like it's a pill. I don't think. I need to explain drugs to rita wilson. I think she's very familiar with drugs not that she does drugs..

"I had learned. As a child was true. I held onto that and began to pray and in some of the worst situations that someone can be in some of the most terrifying and scary situations i began to pray and god really truly became my best friend to end in the darkest of the dark. And i think that a lot. When i read pink section one twenty-one dnc where you know it's it's the prophet and heason liberty jail and he's having this experience of wise so hard but it ended up being such a sacred experience for him. I think about that at the end of my using that it was such a sacred difficult time. But exactly what i needed in heavenly father knew exactly what i needed to help build the willingness so that i could turn to him in humility and begin to see what he could do with my life and i've been clean and sober for four and a half years now. The sister missionaries are a big part of my testimony as well. They showed up in kind of a miraculous moment in the church did a really great little his grace video about a story and they just did such a job but that was an eye opening moment for me heavenly father really is there an loves me and cares about me and did not define the way they adversary had defined me a wanted me to believe that i was all of these labels in all of this stigma that i was a prostitute and a bad mother and an junkie in all these names that i had given myself over the years and then here comes father who is like nope. I'm gonna meet you right where you are. And you're just a love child of god and i can turn this huge mass. You've made of your life and help you turn it into something useful for other people. Sorry now i'm gonna try and that's exactly what he's spent the last four and a half years. This is helping to release that. Shame and i work a really rigorous twelve step recovery program in work with others and and share my story. Because i really believe that it's meant to be shared because the savior really can come in and change lives in hearts and an help with this horrible disease of addiction is taking so many of us out there. People are not surviving it and i just want to be one of those voices that says you know what you could do the same thing for all of these years and then and then find a different way and life is so different than what i ever thought it could be So very very grateful for all the recovering addicts who came before me who found the way and and stood up and shared their story with me because it was through their experiences. That was able to have the hope that okay. If they can do this. I can do this too. And so that's you know that's my story a little nutshell anyway. That's great so inspiring. i love it. I just listened to your story. Where does it begin for you. It's interesting listening to kelly story. And i'm so grateful. I have the opportunity to speak with her because her story is. Maybe what people would expect when you hear the term drug addict. Usually people ended up homeless on the streets and mine was very different from that. But i still experience the same sorrow and suffering that addiction entails so i grew up in a small town here in utah county. I lived in utah. My entire lies. My family went to church. I was raised. Lds pies the aged aids and that around twelve years old. My family had become an active in though the gospel fell out of my life. But i wasn't really aware of it. I didn't understand most of it and unfortunately my life just trying to win it in the wrong direction. At twelve years old. I was introduced to drugs and alcohol and from an early time. I liked it. It wasn't something. I used often but similar to kelly. I had anxiety depression any certain issues. That i wasn't aware of end so i turn to drugs and alcohol and by the time i was sixteen and a half. I was a heroin addict. I was addicted to heroin. I had been using pills drinking alcohol. Excessively i'm really a recovering heroin addicts an alcoholic and i was in that addiction for four years. Which isn't a long time. Compared to some people like kelly Longer but it was long enough to feel that low low place to feel like. I wasn't even deserving of living because i hated who i was. I hated what i had done. I hated the person i had become an. I was just a loss person. That went in my life when i was twenty years. Old withdrawing from heroin had completely destroyed so many aspects of my life. I didn't even know if i believed in god. And i certainly didn't want to believe in the mormon god because i was one of those people that was very against the church but i was desperate and i wanted help and i wanted to change and i didn't know how i could but i decided to attend elliott twelve step meeting sponsored by elliott family services. So i walked into this meeting in january. Two thousand eleven in desparation withdrawing from heroin feeling sick milling low feeling lost. I experienced grace. I experienced hope. I experienced the power of the priesthood and received a priesthood blessing. That completely changed my life. And i decided i was going to try god's way i didn't even know for sure if he was there i didn't know he was listening after i experienced a priesthood blessing. That was quite awful. I just decided to try. What could her in trying. On that first year there were struggles. I never relapse with heroin or drugs that i did struggle with alcohol for its time but i worked steps and i learned of the gospel. My fate grew. Every time i went through every step i did. My fake grew into something more and i began and kept out the repentance process for a long time and three months shy of being two years seen i was still in the temple with my husband and i just really experienced the transformation of the atomic of christ and i experienced it firsthand going from a person. This girl at twenty years old who who couldn't see a future without drugs. Even though i didn't want it i just couldn't understand how that was possible. I never would have thought i would be here ten years later clean and sober without one relapse talking to other people sharing my story and yeah like i said my stories a little difference. Every addiction is different but addiction can find its way into every lies in different circumstances different ways and i think is a big thing that we're dealing with right now. A lot of kids are the same as me. Even here in utah. We think we're somewhat safe because we have good communities in good families. But i was able to find heroin at a pretty young age here in a small town in utah county and that is still happening. An addiction is finding its way into people's lives and so i just wanna share that. There's hope recovery is possible and i've experienced that in just wanna share as much as possible with other people. Wow those are powerful. Even melissa says both amazing stories gave him chills. Good job we're doing. You're doing the work we're getting people crowding so yes powerful stories and a few few questions and thoughts come to mind. Is you know. Obviously nobody wakes up and says. I'll try heroin today or math and see how that goes and there's all a lot of talk of gateway drugs and things like like who what i guess people hearing that like that.

You know you you play it and you're not the same afterwards. I can remember hearing it for the first time. I oh that's gonna change names. And then i went to see them at.

Is that the weekend that the butterfield blues fan played there and dylan goes electric or don't goes electric than next year right after the songs out. No it's the same year and people haven't even heard like a rolling stone yet but they've heard subterranean homesick blues and they put that out immediately out okay and it went. It went to number one. Which is why this whole mid that. The pokey hated the thought of dylan going electric. Well some of them did but it was a number one song in the country wasn't like it was a huge surprise. Yeah yeah and so they they the butterfield van goghs in newport they play friday night show then dylan arrives starts calling people into a hers right but he the first person he calls is blue because he knows the butterfield bands up there and so rubio was the guy with the band together and he basically just took the butterfield blues band team over there and marriage. Yes it's i'm barry goldberg. We'll show up. And al cooper shows up then for the show but actually we should probably go back because the friday night performance of the butterfill blues band is also part of the legend of the newport festival. Because alan lomax gave them a pretty cutting introduction and grossman did not care for this lomax was was like revered by the authentic cookies there. This was the big divide in the folk music world in those days. half of it was authenticity. Which is your old black man and overall playing acoustic guitar Or you know. And he'll billy playing banjo and because qatar symbol. That was that was authentic folk music. There was commercial folk music. Like peter paul and mary Who were huge.

It was easy enough to find a keyboard player But not easy enough to find guitar players fluidity and the ability to blend in with the rest of the band that michael had.

They'd tried to record the studio then. They recorded them. Live at the cafe. Au gogo and do you have any insight into what the issues were they. They were never happy with what they were getting.

"To be a leader of a company that brings virtual teams together since the pandemic emerged. Software companies. selling. Collaboration tools have found themselves in the corporate. Sweet spot the pandemic is made formerly useful tools utterly essential without videoconferencing document sharing the light corporate productivity would ground to a halt when we all began working from home now that more and more big companies are telling employees. They can work from home forever. It appears that teamwork may never go back to the way it was before remote teams. Could well be the new normal. A world view that both software vendors and investors are banking on. That's one obvious reason behind. Last week's blockbuster deal salesforce the two hundred.

Said he believes. This is the most strategic combination in the history of software with the purchase salesforce could expand beyond the realm of sales and marketing and into all corners of big companies according to observers like box ceo aaron levie and slack could expand its user base something. It's apparently been struggling to do. Despite remote workers needs for better communication tools slack has one of the best brand names in the business who in the corporate world hasn't been slacked at one point or another surprisingly though the brand may be bigger than the business itself last october. The company said it had twelve million active daily users but it has an updated those numbers sense slacks sales jumped almost fifty percent in the second quarter of the year but watching as the corporate world began laying off workers butterfield warned investors that sales growth was likely to cool down. It felt a forty percent of the third quarter the new york times reported. That's all in contrast to what's happening at slacks and sale forces biggest rival. That would be microsoft. Microsoft teams competes directly with slack. Some say microsoft copied slack when it debuted teams in late.

Microsoft three sixty five that strategy was rocket fuel for teams taking it from zero to one hundred fifteen million users in four years. According to urge reporter. Casey newton that bundling is such an obstacle for slack that the smaller company filed a complaint against microsoft with the european commission in july according to the new york times quoted in the times edward jones analysts local perk observed that the salesforce deal is an admission that slack can no longer compete against the eight hundred pound gorilla that microsoft. This is more or less saying we need more firepower. Logan told the times under butterfield's leadership slack at previously spurned other suitors including google amazon and yes microsoft itself. Sales forces pending purchase of slack is the biggest in its twenty one year history. What it represents is nothing less than the potential reordering of the silicon valley universe with this move mark. Benef- is going after enterprise sales up against microsoft directly. That's a bold move and an interesting one given that. Benny off tried unsuccessfully to sell salesforce to microsoft five years ago. What happens next should be interesting for everyone involved especially employees simply trying to be productive in stressful remote interrupt driven circumstances as the pandemic rearranges. Our work lives. It's also rearranging challenges and opportunities for makers of collaboration software. This won't be the last matchup. We'll see for companies that help us get work done together.

We're going to spend the day going. Go ahead, Dave. Okay, Here's your question. What is your principal defect? Ally principle. That's a deep question. Very hard. Yeah, they are like super hard questions. I feel like that when I was a little bit of thought. Unless you Gosh! How about my inability to agree with myself? I probably I have plenty to choose from.

I was intimidated by going to get a petition. But I got one yesterday was explained to me very thoroughly. There's really nothing to it. It's super easy on DH. I just went to Wal Mart to get poster board to make a recall published sign for when I go out and get my petition signatures, So we need to keep plugging away at this for the next week or so. I believe we have to. We remembered knowing Yep. November night Monday, so there's To win his love people. You just don't sit back. We can't just get another petition signatures.

Political Ad Nauseam

"As much as campaigns want to keep spending secret federal law actually requires TV stations around the country to disclose all the political ads, the campaigns by and those TV ads account for something in the ballpark of sixty percent of campaign ads. Spending a lot of the rest is stuff like Google and facebook ads at those companies actually don't have to disclose as much information about the ads. So today we're going to focus on. TV. Spending the majority of the spending. So think of the United States as a giant game board to campaigns walk around the board they put some of their ad money down this part. Of the country a little bit more over here, and the way they put that money down tells us what places they think are most important for winning the election. If you're looking just at the state level, the bronze medal goes to Wisconsin Sixty, four, million dollars, worth of TV ads they're not surprising. Wisconsin was one of those states that trump flipped from the democratic column back in Two Thousand Sixteen Silver Medal Pennsylvania with one hundred, seven, million dollars worth of TV ads also not surprising Purple State with twenty electoral votes and in first place with one. Hundred thirty, three, million dollars America's favorite election meltdown waiting. Oh Florida, my beloved Florida. Now, this is just are beginning calculation. We're going to dig in more, but there are lessons to learn just looking at the big picture the big campaign game board. Yes. So so take Florida this is not a monolithic place. You're going to have super republican areas like the panhandle and then big democratic areas around places like Miami and you might imagine that the most. Cost effective thing is for the Republicans to completely pull out of the democratic strongholds and vice versa. But in fact, neither political party is doing that the whole state is getting bombarded with ads from both sides Daniel. Butterfield. From the Super PAC PRIORITIES USA she says it can start to turn into something like an arms race. So when you see your opponent spending money in a market, it really raises The question of should I be spending money there to to keep up area competitive and if you want to understand why political spending just keeps going up, it's at least partly because of his arms race if your opponents bins more in, Tampa you have to spend more in Tampa which in turn makes the cost of ads in. Tampa that much more expensive. Next thing you know you blue one. Hundred thirty, three, million dollars in Florida. Danielle says, the arms race thing is not just irrational fear. There's a real electoral cost to waving the white flag in a particular area. If you're in an ad market and your opponent clears out, that is great news for you. You have the airwaves to yourself. Your advertising goes a lot further in terms of impact than if you have to opponents that are. Driving opposite messages is there like a particular tipping point to that that sort of campaign folks like you gotTa. Spend the twenty percent otherwise. Like what counts as as not being drowned out. Good? Yeah. There is actually a lot of areas some data behind like what is the particular percentage that is required? It's I'd say that's probably more of a secret sauce that I wouldn't necessarily WanNa name on this podcast for you know that numbers, you're just tell me. I I. Know. Roughly what percentage I think is useful is, is it twenty three percent? You got it. But okay. So fine lots of money being spent in Florida but this is not a very specific answer to our question who is the most expensive voter we want to be more granular, which is why we got her hands on a more precise data set. Thank you advertising analytics. This data set is GonNa let zoom in on every single television market in the entire country. So for example, we know that forty million dollars has been spent in the Orlando Daytona. Beach Melbourne market. Compare that to the grand rapids, Kalamazoo Battle Creek Michigan market where it's twelve million dollars and sure there's more people in Orlando but still, how are the campaigns arriving at exactly forty million and exactly twelve million to help answer that we brought in some help Michael Beach. CEO. Crushing Media Michael Runs an advertising analytics company now, but he has worked in the past for the presidential campaigns of George W Bush John McCain Mitt Romney, and the reason we wanted to talk to Michael is his whole job. is to figure out where companies or sometimes political campaigns should place millions of dollars. Worth of ads Michael has all this fancy proprietary software. If you're an advertiser, he can tell you whether you should be focusing your ads on like Republicans, with Minivans are Democrats ride motorcycles or neither. He's got all these different attributes in his computer thousands of attributes for. Anything from certain partisanship to likelihood to buy a Ford truck into those do those specific categories correlate. Yes and no it like it's pretty geographic if you're looking at northeast, Ohio or you're you know. You're in Alabama in the Senate race. that. Wouldn't be a probably a good signal. Reich is like. As owner everyone drive structure. Now, the reason we went to Michael is because we thought it might be interesting to look at how many dollars were being spent on any given swing voter swing voters in theory are people who might be influenced by a political ad. The problem is it is very hard to pin down exactly how many of these people are out there but Michael Software can at least take a stab at it what is GonNa do is go through all these data sets to first identify how many likely voters there are in a particular TV market and then identify which of those has even the tiniest probability of changing their vote and a lot of this calculation is just sifting out the diehards. If you are somebody who voted in the last five, Democratic primaries were every year you donate to the R. N. C. You are out. But maybe your party affiliation switched a couple of times. Maybe you're a first time voter that may put you in this bucket the basically using generic party model and generic it's party not not candidate. Driven in other words, we're estimating voters chances to swing between Democrat and Republican as opposed to trump and biden specifically. But there's still does give us a way to compare across TV markets and when you re ranked the country based on dollars spent per swing voter the markets are not in Florida. In fact, the top five ad markets are all in Pennsylvania and number one on that list where campaigns are spending around ninety dollars per likely swing voter. Is My home television market the region in western Pennsylvania in and around Erie Pennsylvania. Okay. So Kenny you grew up there like what is it? What is the what are we talking about just to be clear I grew up in Meadville which is south of Erie, but it's in the market and like yeah, this is a region with a lot of manufacturing jobs these jobs have been leaving. It's predominantly white its having the. Same kind of brain drain problem that a lot of the other parts of the so-called rust belt are having. But look like I don't know anything about who a potential swing voter would be in the Erie television market. This is why we have Michael's fancy software. It can help us understand who that is. What can we know about the Eerie Market area? How does it compare to the rest of the country? Like who's there? It opened up my magic machine here. Michael Punches Eerie plugs in a few numbers so it's running. Then he opens up a tab that lets us compare the Erie population as a whole to just the likely swing voters. So now I look at in. Eerie. For instance, the average adult is fifty three years old if you just take the whole population in the market. Target, audience if you said. swing likely to turn out is forty seven other words. Michael's machine is telling us that the average swing voter is is six years younger than the average, their forty, seven years old, and the other incredible thing about Michael's machine is that it's also able to spit out this whole media plan for how to reach those people. The machine can name the single TV show watched by the most swing voters. Each week that show in the Eerie area is the OT on Fox football shows or wrap up of the day's games. That'd be fair. that is one of the most watched shows in the entire country. But the numbers do show that in terms of efficiency like sports would be a pretty good way to get your ad in front of a decent chunk of swing voters in Erie Pennsylvania Espn you can reach sixty percent on eerie and a week. Again, this target in this market if the secret to understanding what the campaigns are thinking is to learn where the most money is being spent per swing voter. That place

"And whoever in your organization spends the least amount of time communication it's still going to be thirty or forty percent of their job. And, if you look at all of that communication and maybe the average is like seventy percent of your employees time. If you look at it. A lot of it is not really interesting creative strategic stuff. It's basic acts of of coordination. It the status report and the updates and the daily stand up set. Everything that a project manager does but the shoe number of meetings and the conversations are to help people get on the same page and to be clear I don't think that's a waste of time. I. Think that's essential because human beings are. Like herding cats, it's very difficult to keep people lined. But if you to make a simple Example Arithmetically fashion you have ten thousand person. And the total loss of employment is about heart thousand dollars. You're spending two billion dollars payroll and half of that is going towards just spent. Really. Basic conversations communication. Any leverage you can get on that is has a disproportionate impact to your top line productivity that's unrivalled by any other change that you could make. So have I mean even a one percent inflection there. Is a is an enormous a shift in Roi, and I've had this conversation at least one of you in the past Software Investment on a per employee per year basis as something that is just marginally increasing has for decades, it will continue to do. So the number of different applications you have use is increasing the number of minutes if people spend using software, every day is increasing the number of software companies that exist in the world is increasing the number of software companies with more than ten, one, hundred, million dollars, billion dollars, revenues, they're all increasing. So and none of that is stopping twenty twenty it's been since the early seventies there's been a one way half there. As that happens you know we spend. A little fourteen, thousand dollars per employee per year on software, and I don't mean server licenses or data entertaining the just just software. and. We're definitely A. Exactly I would. If I had to guess, I would say top dial because we're a newer company were intact were more tech forward but I suspect for all of you it's going to be at least five thousand dollars per employee per year so. Hopefully all of that is smart spend not in the sense that you get a thirty percent return for it but in the sense, you get a five extra connects. The best use cases of. Competing in business for taking up a long time ago computers computers so much better than doing much. Than remembering stuff. So databases accounting software early. But now. We buy tools that plug into our marketing automation SOFTWARE AND WE BY. The skip to the most telling example There's now dozens of companies competing in the category, of SAS, management tools of expansion and renewal management and lack compliance management just for thousand different cloud services you have in use. Right. So with all that. BE I. If, you're not getting a hundred x Roi from most of the four investments in there I think there's something fundamentally wrong. The other question though. It's Here's. The differences I see them between. One is there's a bunch of stuff that teams doesn't do I sorry that teams does that that's locked doesn't do and that's what we're doing right now it's the alternative zoo it's voice videoconferencing. It's conference room integration You know everything that the people who are migrating type for business are are using teams for. From what we've seen, that's by far the biggest used case like that's eighty or ninety percent of usage. There is another category of stuff that that similar things slack doesn't in a slightly different direction It's a start page for office. So if your job is to collaborate around the office file types like redlining contracts in word or working as. and you you share point than teams as a huge step forward in that experience, it's much easier way to organize and collaborate on on those files and office has no other start page and there's not really any other alternative but outlook already. Does. Enough stuff. You wouldn't want it to be outlook. And there's things that slack does that are similar to that but in different dimensions that aren't about the office file types but instead are about. Your. For Engineering continuous integration testing tools for it. It's tickets and managed at four. Operations teams a lot monitoring and alerting to there's a whole bunch of use cases that are. for those employees who don't spend that much time on the office file types that's been another platform capabilities. And then the third place use case again, this were on the outside. So perfect knowledge of the third place use case for Teens is defense slack us, which is you create a channel for everything happening across the company. Now, everyone knows where to go to ask the question to give their update. Go to get caught up. We look at our biggest customers IBM is the largest that is also most insured of three, hundred, fifty thousand people there tens of thousands of workspaces with millions of channels between them, and there's consolidated administrative control over all of that, and so the end, the structure that actually mirrors the structure of the the organization. and. That's just not possible. Inching is much more for the record level because an individual instance is limited to five thousand people but five thousand peoples in her relevant limit when you're limited to two hundred channels Even at two thousand. One hundred employees or whatever we have. We have about twenty thousand chance of you if you try to one teams instance. We'd have a limit of one percent. So, there's that if it's important for this to be able to to. Break Down Silos at the level of a larger organization or there's no alternative we've never. Lost an enterprise customer to teams because you just can't do that in teams, and again, that's not to say that change is valuable. I think there's a whole bunch of his head published. The teams doesn't doesn't do and you do see them used alongside each other an almost always that's slack for written communication and teams her for video. The last thing I would say is increasingly important has been. Shared channels and the kind of the networks that form so In January Jen Hotta who's the CEO of Patriot Judy? Hosted a dinner up she invited a bunch of SAS company that bay? Area. CEO's. Because that email thread was just sitting there. Someone picked it up in. Late February early March and said hey everyone. Are you really thinking Shang offices offices of what are we going to do here then? Turn. into this big email thread which turned into zoom call that we have every week. That's kind of. A support group almost but also just to share some intelligence. And now there's eighteen companies including slap participate in all public saas companies..

Pigeonly Uses Technology to Help Inmates Stay in Touch with Family and Friends

"Butterfield I think as many people know is the founder and CEO of slack, which has just really become an integral part of many of our lives and has seen record growth. We're GONNA. Talk about that on the show. I want to introduce also Frederick Hudson the CEO and founder of Pigeon Louis Frederick you can correct me if I've got this wrong. But last I heard you had evaluation of about five million dollars, twenty employees twenty, million twenty million so I I missed around. I guess missed around. And essentially what pigeon Lee does enable easier communication with inmates who are incarcerated across the United States. For, family members with incarcerated loved ones so connecting people. who mostly live in an analog world with all of us who live in a digital world? Frederick one of the things that caught my attention about pigeon. Louis was that. There's a lot of predatory pricing essentially to make a phone call like a fifteen minute phone call could cost almost twenty dollars like a dollar a minute, and that was one of the animating things here. There's like a market imbalance. It's ripe for Innovation Yeah. Yeah, and that's one of the things that you know. We set out to fix his. In a lot of cases, because this is one of the few industries that that. Operate on the system that allows kickbacks. And, that's how contracts get awarded. It creates a very predatory situation that ultimately the friends and families of whoever's incarcerated. They bear that cost, so it's not even the person who was in prison. That's bearing his burden is to family friends, and that support not going outside there really are. Holding up this you know forty fifty billion dollar industry, so one of the goals of this show is to be very granular and to dive into issues and try to workshop them and see what kind of insights we can gain. That are applicable both to your specific business, but are also useful for all of our listeners out there and Stuart, slack cells to. To everybody big companies small companies, but you have had really good success working with government agencies in the State Department for instance I would love to learn a little bit about. How do you sell to us such a specific channel like a government? What kind of insights have you developed? There's definitely problems with government generally, but I think we have this Era Mentality across the country that you know. Six scariest words are I'm from the government and I'm here to help most of the men and women that I have met who work in in the federal government well-intentioned trying their best, it's. Just. Every federal government plays a saint or anything like that. But I think it's not well understood and we kind of the attitude that we have. which is largely? Dismissive large, throwing up your hands, and what can you do? kind of pessimistic about the possible outcomes helps determine a set of negative outcomes and I think helps entrench. The. Problems that we would most like to see progress on economic inequality criminal justice reform that can go down the list. But as long as we treat kind of government as the as the enemy I think we're going to. Have a hard time solving. Problems that require government help. Frederick. What are you seeing in your business? What is it like working with the government? Yeah, Stuart, raise some good points I think we. My first trip to DC was last year some around last year. This was my first trip going with our lobbyists and meeting with different members of Congress and different congressional offices, and my eyes was opened. To basically what you're just saying that you know there's there's the individuals a lot of these individual offices. They definitely are really trying to do the best. They can and really trying to positive difference and one support initiatives. That they believe is going to make a difference, but there's just so much red tape the so much bureaucracy. There's so many things there's so many layers in order to get something to happen and you know I. I actually started to get an understanding of the inner workings of government. And I saw less as his big beasts and I started to see it more as individuals that actually got to know throughout time.

Slack onboards more than 2 million users in one week

"Before the pandemic slack was a pretty widely used office messaging platform but in a single week starting March tenth slack on boarded more than two million new users. Among those working remotely are stewards. Twenty one hundred employees who work in offices in ten countries around the world. I spoke with Stewart from his home in the bay area. Where he's been wondering. What is the future of Work and slack? Look like thank you for being your. How are you doing by the way I'm doing? Okay I mean I I I'd feel grateful that we have a backyard that we have two little dogs. That's something on the other end. We have twenty one. Hundred plays around the world in a distribution of of how people are doing right now. People are okay. Many people are stressed and anxious. fears about economic fallout about health of their friends and family and their communities. Some people go a little bonkers trying to work while been the schoolteacher to their six year old a daycare to their three year old and the kids are obviously gone. Crazy people who are cooked up in a small apartment but kind of by themselves And then of course. There's the broader world which is much more mixed. You guys basically shut down your offices in San Francisco on March sixth. How did you make that decision so early? There's other a lot of people talking about it and there is this really you know day by day. Or even in some cases going hour by hour Cumulation of events of things getting cancelled debating whether to cancel our global sales offsite at which we get about eight hundred people together. This year was going to be in in Phoenix and we have guests wide end and that was the next week. I think we need to cancel that with within four days I was in frequent communication with a couple of my my peers other software companies and in the bay area mostly and we are starting to talk about it and I think I realized that it was going to inevitably happen. And maybe we could defer by out week or something like that but the point deferring by week and if one of the incentives here is not just. The health and safety are employs Kind of being good citizens and can stewards. Since we're able to do it. We should do it as quickly as and then. I think you had an employee who was contacted by the CDC that they might have come into contact with. Somebody tested positive. And I'm assuming that that also kind of prompted the decision to just tell everyone at work at home. Yes so actually. I mean on March fifth Thursday. So that was. Our board meeting hadn't really contemplated later that day. We got notified by this employees that the CC notified them that they had been potentially exposed and since they had been back in the office the exposure. We decided we're close. The office on Friday March. Sixth over the weekend a deep clean you know people come in with. I think we have. Eli in a bunch of stuff but by Friday afternoon You know the humidity evidence made it clear that we were going to have to decide to check out completely so we never after Thursday we go back in the office and it turned out that was the last in most people stewart. We've had a lot of business leaders on the show like restaurant. Owners and prominent founders and for the most part their businesses are in trouble particularly the airlines and the restaurant industry For for slack. It's been the reverse I mean after it. It kind of became clear that so many of us were gonNA work from home. Demand for slack just skyrocketed has the demand slowed down a little bit right now. We're we've now entered the quiet period leading up to our earnings call in the early stages of this yes we saw huge increase in the number of new teams being created which kind of people signing up for slack in the first place converting to aid status of the customers who already paid adding more users. The people who are already using it increasing their usage the number of messages they sent per day kind of like every metric Up and I would expect the the the good part I think of having that surge early on is it was great for employs. You know is great for morale to feel like you could help Mostly optimistic about human beings and In Times of crisis like this I think people had really strong instinct. And if there's a place for you to put that energy it's not just productive ineffective. It's also kind of spiritually calming less. If you're if you feel like you're being help so I think really grateful for that. Also we've just invested so much over the last five years in a disciplined culture around communication partly because of the use of our own product and partly just because you realize how important was this transition was relatively easy because we already invested so much in a style of working in ways reporting progress and keeping updated coordinated. People had an office and they had childcare when they felt like addict. What are the cafe and sit outside. Actually people go by and stuff like that. This is different now. There's no child art grandparents can't come and help you know there's there's one part of this that's a that's a little bit. Probably people spending a lot more time with their families. So it's it's really it's an interesting position because we just don't have a crystal ball. None of us do our position. Is this We cannot tell because we just don't We honestly don't.

Jason Lemkin Clip: Why now is the best time to start a SaaS company

"A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to chat with former founder. Active venture capitalists and driving force behind. Sastre Jason Lincoln. Jason Zoster a community for Sassan cloud founders also organized the annual Sastre Conference in San Jose. That now attracts five figures. Were the folks each year. We spoke with Jason before the novel. Corona virus had evaded containment efforts affecting domestic markets after upending their counterparts abroad the current community since dacians forced Jason Deport. Sastre back a bit. But that doesn't mean that our chat with him any less timely in our forty five minute conversation we covered a ton of stuff from the potential for cloud slow down to how founders should use or not use venture debt to Jason's outlook on SAS consolidation. And even half asked. He's writing checks today. We're sharing one of our favorite clips here. The rest is over on techcrunch for excellence subscribers we're GONNA get into VC's lately that have been talking about the beginning of cloud. Slow down and I I. This is a very specific thing. What they mean is cloud is no longer an upstart phenomenon. Saas LONGER NASCENT. We've now seen a large percentage of the inner voice software world move over to SAS and nine means that the growth rate will descend as the actual aggregate basis larger and critically. They think that this might lead to income and squeezing out startups from certain spaces in the Saas market. That might have been attractive before. And this is from Alex over at scale venture partners recently and I thought it was interesting hypothesis. I don't see why wouldn't be correct. But I want to get your take on. I know your cloud optimist. You've always been a believer in my experience. So when you think about the maturing of this ass market does that leave less space for starts in as you look at the the overall landscape. Well let's see. I think there are two different points. I have two different perspectives. If you look at data from Gartner which is imperfect. But at least we haven't you. Can you can say that. Maybe thirty percent of old school on Prem type software has gone to SAS thirty percent so the pollen of user seventy percent left but the flipside is. That's a lot of market penetration right. It actually starts approach forty fifty percent. You should see a slowdown this secular trend into SAS. When when even when you started doing sas certainly when I started doing it was risky. It was quirky. It was weird. It was it disliked. It was it was not trust about two thousand sixteen through about Twenty Sixteen. Maybe even a little later at the first astronaut. Aaron Levy came one week after the box roadshow and asked him what the public markets. He said they're starting to learn about it. They're starting to get comfortable in two thousand fifteen. That's that's only twenty five years ago so we are so that thirty percent was probably eight percent right and so there is so there's so so there's a the good news is seventy percent left. The the risk is like you know there's only so much of this crazy growth and another thing happened. Which if you look at any Gartner or whatever this and this no one anticipated more of. It went we all knew there would be a substitution that of however you define it a trillion three and there's different metrics how much infrastructure include. We all knew that like the old the old on Prem Safra would go to sas we didn't realize that it would. It would take up thirty to forty percent more of those. It budget so they used to so we got an extra boost. People are spending more on software. No no one from scale no one from anybody realized we would spend more on business software because of SAS but has physical limits. It budgets are only be so much of global two thousand budget so these Amazing Trans created many many Saas companies. Doing a billionaire are billionaire are but but they're gonNA hit headwinds there. There's no question those headwinds that's different from whether that's going to box out startups. By the first half of the apotheosis there is going to be a slow down as we just forty fifty percents over the next five years. Yes there has to be and as we stop putting more and more of our fixed. It budget into SAS. These are two great trends and they will reach saturation. Got It okay. Now on certain point and and being boxed out using more skeptic I think this is the best time to start a startup time. Tell me why because all the SAS leaders are billion. Two BILLION COMING UP ON A billionaire. Zenda shop is the hub spots. They don't have taught they don't have time so if you're a billionaire and they're all growing like a weed growing thirty forty percents shop advice. Going fifty percents off. But they're all growing. They're all growing with a few exceptions. They're all growing north of twenty percent. All the leaders true. So let's imagine you're in a building air which now they're like twenty of these companies. How much do you have to add this year? Two hundred even three hundred. Maybe a lot you're thinking about non-organic time to compete with your little startup. That was just on tech crunch. You know ten years ago. Five Years Twenty fifteen. When when Aaron came from box Aaron would see a startup. Doing five millionaire. Get a little worried. I mean not literally worried but they. Hey this may disrupt me. Is that right Stewart. Butterfield doesn't have time he's GonNa read it. He's all over social media. He's an incredible founder but slack doesn't have time going to a billionaire to worry about someone that did five million has got to worry about. Microsoft has gotta worry big guy so that means you have a lot of air cover to get not just to a million before your competed with by maybe one hundred million owes underneath the. We'll just ignore you because they have to focus they have to hold it and adobe turning around now and everyone from fig on down is competing aggressively with them. But why because they're stupid of course not? They're very smart. Sap there they were busy. It's too small. It was too small right and there's too much growth in creative cloud creative cloud fuel the dobies text market cap growth. So they just. It's not that they don't watch what's happening with web flow and figment everyone. It's just too small until it's nine figures in revenue because figure has become materialists. I don't know how they're all super successful and it's not because anyone was dumb. It's just because you can't compete when they were small you just can't. You're too big. You're they've grown too quickly so it sounds like instead of this problem. It's actually there's there's more freedom because become now too busy to kind of mess with you get up to ten fifteen twenty million a are before they even begin the guns on your ship and because cloud got so big. These niches got big. Every niche. That used to be a millionaire NECC- now can be one hundred million Monday dot Com. Where you're talking about who we needed another project. Management for Non Tech folks that went from one hundred twenty million in four years. But that's a that's a piece like ten years ago. That would be a two million dollar business going to two hundred million so let's whole years one hundred times bigger. This little niche that Monday found and they're going to do a billionaire art. So let's talk about Vertical Saas. Jump ahead my question because this is what I wanted to get. Borough Ready It seems like you're thinking about Vertical Saas than isn't that this is GonNa be constricting idea but inside these these these takes on like the dentist industry or whatever and building software for those could be enormous because the niches have gotten larger to your points. I presume your a bowl on vertical sats. I've always been a ball. I would say even more simply. Look at any company to billionaire. Look at his desk job. Okay which is already two billion. That means they're gonNA keep growing. That means they're going to get to five or ten billion. My rough math is there's another billion vertical version of that so there's another billionaire could be more and that means there could be ten UNICORNS. One hundred million ten verticalised desks right And doesn't even have time to meet with them right. I Investment Company gorgeous which is like a vendetta ECOMMERCE. They're almost all on shop. Affi- it's very niche right. They're gonNA be growing three. X Ten million error. Is that tune it? People thought this company was to NICCI twelve. Apparently it's not nine. Three hundred percent honest has an offering it as a great product but all they do is make sure your fulfillment from instagram to shipping. That your contact center works magically. Which is good enough. Note is enough. It is enough to build a three hundred million Arab business. But it's just a niche today. That's so big because cloud is look how shoplifting. Today seventy million dollars in two thousand fifteen it was worth eight hundred million so these niches have grown astronomically and that means these vertical SAS things. We've like gorgeous and others. You turn around. And how could we do be a unicorn? Well it wasn't four or five years ago right when I met I met the founders only twice twenty fifteen. They were great but it wasn't clear it could be as big today but cloud. Gubbay point about Zen desk in there being room for ten unicorns underneath the desk at one hundred air. The implications vertical sights will still generally smaller companies than the original broader. Sass play so to me even smaller than salesforce. That's an example I don't Viva is a Pharma. Sierra Viva is the most successful verticals ass company so the CTO salesforce left salesforce a decade ago founded VIVA. It only raised three million dollars from emergence plus. It's now worth twenty billion dollars. Today he was also in my class. Like everyone did better than me in my bye-bye on the show but you should just get out. We should bring Peter Gassner. He's like a hundred times would have been me and vivas was twenty something billion and then how to products and he. He said look sales versus a great horizontal play I WanNa do Pharma and there. There is a legacy vendor in the space and it's big. It's a big space and all their deals are seven figure eight figure deals. But it's still. It's still a thirty billion dollar company and salesforce is one hundred fifty billion so I can't think of a vertical SAS that is bigger than its horizontal play but it may well it may well exist but thirty billion still outcomes. You're at three million dollar investment. Even if they are smaller by definition you know there's going to be enormous your general point about the client it's up it's becoming growing the high antigone larger piece of the overall. Everyone seems to be very hot. Verticals ask these days. So that's why I wanted to ask because they like it because the cloud got bigger and because competition is simpler the amount of domain expertise you have to do to build a viva is. It's rich compounds on itself and there aren't going to be twenty startups out of y Si. They're going to build that. But but and so there are these verticals because finally they realized they can be three hundred air business and then they can actually millionaire and they realized look it actually works. I can like I. Invested in in a SAS company just for environmental compliance called map history right. They disclosed their first. One million dollar deal okay. They have like no competition not in the whole space but in what they do they can have a few bumps and they can get through it. They have time they have times. There's not ten other players in the exact same thing. We've guys may disagree. But they had like one or two competitors and their original competitor was I think. Ms Dos based in offices. So you have time and so like this because you just. You're you're overwhelmed with the competition. You're overwhelmed with everyone. Wanted to take on snowflake and data dog and and there are many great apm companies. But it's exhausting. How do you know what's the next day doc?

Vimalakirti Sutra 2020 - Talk 8

"Hi. Everybody am here in my house recording. Because I wanted to have a complete set of my own recordings on the Villa Sutra. I was gone the last several weeks of the seminar and Jeff. Bicknell took over for me and his recordings are available. But I wanted to have a set of my own as well so I'm GonNa Talk And share about chapters ten through the end of the Sutra. And I'm going to start here with chapter ten. The FEAST BROUGHT BY EMANATED INCARNATION. And this begins right after this silence of insecurity when he is the last to respond to the meaning of. Non Duality response by keeping silence. And so after that profound response Shari Putra at the beginning of this chapter says. I'm worried about all these buddy sought because it's noon almost and when are they going to eat and and Bill Acuity says to Shari. Put your boy. We're talking about these ultimate thing. So why are you worried about eating? Anyway I'm going to show you now an amazing meal far beyond anything you've ever seen so he enters into a concentration and enables. The disciples gathered at his house to see a universe called. Sarah Gonda Uganda. Which is located. Man has many butterfield's beyond where they are as there are sans in the forty two Ganges rivers so if there were forty two Ganges and each one had innumerable sand. That's how far away this universe is and that's how many Buddha fields are in this universe and they're the Taga named Sugandha Kuta resides and lives in that universe. It is so lofty and the aspiration is so high that nobody even heard of a disciple or a show project. Buddha Solitary Buddha there are no lesser pass only ultimate Mahayana Path exists there and in that universe all the houses all the avenues. All the parks. All the palaces are made a fragrance. They're made of perfumes and the food eaten by those bodies office is perfume. And they're they are now sitting down to eat their perfume fragrance. Food and the body side of his disciples Curtis House can see them doing this. So says to the gathering Would you like to go there and partake of that food but Mon- JUDICIARY Creates Supernatural Power to rob them of any desire to go there to eat food so nobody says they? WanNa go so then. We'll acuity without rising from his couch magically emanates an incarnation buddy southbound sort of magical being a golden colored adorned with US officials signs and marks shining throughout the assembly and. He says to that incarnation. But he's got to go in the direction of Zenith where that world is and whether all those Buddha fields and when you get there find the Buddha there ciganda Kuta he'll be eating and bought him and tell him that asks after his health and that has a request. Would you mind giving us whatever's leftover from your meal so that we can feed it to the people here in this world? So the incarnation body. Sophos says okay. I'll do it. And he looks up and immediately disappears and appears in other universe and makes the requests and the buddy sauces there. He e the request is specifically as we want this food to inspire people with lesser aspirations in the world to have greater aspirations and so all the buddies say well what what does that mean less lesser aspirations. We can't even imagine any less her aspirations and then the Buddha there ciganda Kuta says to them well. They have lesser aspirations because they live in a more corrupt world than ours. Our world is so pure. Of course we have high aspirations but there there's corruption there so they need. They're struggling to get out of the difficulty of their world so their aspirations initially are quite low but vimla courtesy. Listen that world. Nevertheless he has these inconceivable aspirations and he's wants to inspire the body Saunas so the buddy scientists say wow he must be something that if he can create a magical creature like this and live in that world and so the Buddha there said yes he is great and and he really is working for all living beings in all fields so he granted the request. He poured some of his food impregnated with all the perfumes into a fragrant vessel. And he gave it to the incarnation buddy saga and and at that time. Ninety Million Buddy Saunas in that beautiful universe said we'll go along to when he delivers the food. We would like to go to. Let's let's let us go so that we can honor the Buddha shock your money in that Saha World and honor this great visual acuity and see the Buddy Saad there so and the target That other Buddha out of the realm sugandha Kuta says well. If you think that that's a good idea go ahead. But less those living beings become matt an intoxicated. Go without your perfumes and less those living beings of the world become jealous of you. Change your body's and hide your beauty and don't think of any ideas of contempt and aversion for that very imperfect universe. Why Noble Sons? Buddha field is a field of pure space but the Lord Buddha Lord Buddhists in order to develop living beings. Do not reveal all at once the pure realm of the Buddha. So He's giving instructions to these super purified beings how to behave themselves in this less than purified world so they disappeared from there and Boof Pity reappeared in house and since they were ninety million of them it caused them to produce. Ninety million. More lion thrones like the ones he had produced before and they all sat down. So then the incarnation buddy sought for gave the vessel full of food to them acuity and the fragrance from that food permeated the entire city of I- solly and further beyond that to one hundred universes but within the city of the brand's householders and even chubby chieftain Chandra Chandra Chandra Chandra noticing the fragrance. We're amazed and filled with wonder and cleansed in body and mind and came all at once to the House of Milwaukee along with all eighty four thousand of the population of the Chubby territories. And they all bowed. And they were all amazed then Acuity said to Shari Putra in. The great disciples their reverence. Eat of the food of the data. It is Ambrosia perfumed by the great compassion. That's the source of its beautiful fragrance. The great compassion. But do not fix your minds in narrow minded attitudes dualistic grasping attitudes. Because if you do you will not be able to receive this gift. So then they said but how can such a huge assembly here eat such a small quantity of food? And of course he said you know. There's nothing to worry about.

How I Built This

Live From The HIBT Summit: Stewart Butterfield

"Hey everyone so today. We've got another one of my conversations from the how I built this summit. That happened in San Francisco last October. And you don't in the world of startups. Most difficult moves to pull off is a pivot to maneuver out of your first idea into something that might have more potential and Stewart Butterfield. He pulled this off not once but twice about seventy years ago. Out of the ashes of failed video game. Stewart launched slack an office collaboration tool that now has twelve million daily users but before slack back in two thousand four Stewart was struggling to get traction Shen with another video game called game never ending. He wound up shedding that one down too but out of that failure he was able to launch a photo sharing site called liquor which he sold just a year later for around twenty million dollars so when I sat down with Stewart onstage. I asked him about both of those pivots. Starting starting with the first one from game. Never ending to flicker there was a point and you talked about this in the podcast where you had to decide whether to drop all this work on this computer game like more than a year. I think two years of work on this game and pivot to the photo sharing site and there was a debate in internal debate. I wonder how did you know that that was the right thing to do. Because our instinct would tell us to push forward Gordon to keep going right like. That's what we think we're supposed to do to just carry on and March forward. Yeah there's a lot of advice that's just persevere grit grit resilience gotta keep going in the face of adversity over and over but there is definitely a point where you either you know. It can't work or kind of like the reverse verse manifesting of I don't believe anymore this could work. which makes it very unlikely? If if the person leading the project doesn't believe it can work. It's it will be a weird fluke for it actually to work out but we were just out of money and it would have been much more difficult complex project. Complete Games would have taken us a minimum of another year but probably realistic closer to two more years. And we didn't have that kind of time. Whereas flicker we figured we can get version of this out in A couple of months and it actually was. I don't remember the exact dates anymore but some time in December two thousand and two that we decided to do it and early February two thousand three launched. So you guys ended up selling flicker to Yahoo and you described yourself as briefly Internet famous. You you actually were on the cover of Newsweek magazine with with some of the people at one point which. I'm assuming Gotcha some attention to allow you to kind of think about the next project kicked you decide to go back and start another company. That was going to be a computer game called glitch. What was driving you then I I mean did you think okay? Now I've failed failed the first time now. I know how to do it right. We can talk about the reasons that we used to convince ourselves that it would work this time. There was actually a lot of realistic realistic stuff. There the cost of hardware so servers in the background had fallen by at least ninety percent and bunch of things change by a factor of ten the number of people online line change by a factor of ten the availability of great open source software tools but stepping back when I got in line in Nineteen Ninety two and I grew up in Victoria British Columbia. which is a pretty small town actually provincial? It's on the edge of the continent and then it's on an island so it feels very remote and cut off from the rest of the world world to kind of an an observer and when I got to college I got an account on the school's unique machine and that meant I had access to the Internet and this is maybe six or nine months before the web really started to take off so the Internet at that time was a thing called newsgroup which is hierarchical directory of kind. Hi discussion boards for more or less everything in the world's hugely popular in the scientific community and academic communities but also recreational in fact kind of mind blowing looming but wreck dot music dot g dead. The grateful dead Newsgroup was the most popular thing on the entire Internet is like in terms of traffic it was the net flicks of its day. Just like the text postings going back and forth and I just really remember that as being one of the most revelatory mind-blowing experiences in my life that even though we were on the edge of the world at felt like and kind of really outside of everything that was really happening. I can connect anyone and that kind of the possibilities for computer technology to facilitate human interaction to me are endlessly fascinating and I think when we you look back. Tens of thousands of years to this time it will seem as significant as the development of written language because it just allows this accretive knowledge allows allows the accessibility allows US instant communication coordination between people. And we're still like one percent of the way into exploring the possibilities. So I mean with with glitch right. This is a beautiful game. Raise money around it. You had great developers. You convince people to move across the country work on this what happened. It just didn't so in this case we had the money in fact acme of money leftover when we decided to shut it down but it was apparent that it wouldn't work and I think this is a if there's one thing that's an actual like practical lesson for entrepreneurs in in all of this history besides the sometimes pivots work it's It's hard if it's really really hard to explain your at an enormous disadvantage wjr. And so what does the way games are marketed. Generally as there's kind of two by two Matrix and in one access it's the kind of veneer. Looks like the World War. Two or post apocalyptic sci fi or it looks like Bennigan's and dragons or it looks like Pika chew or something like that like cutesy cartoon. There's that the flavor of it and then there's the the the mechanics of the game first person shooter real time strategy and puzzle games and stuff like that and games are marketed is. It's like their position on this grid so it's a World War Two first person shooter. Game an instantly people can see like at least I understand what that is and maybe I'm interested in. Maybe I'm not. We tried to sell the world a massively multiplayer game with no combat cooperative. It was kind of Monty Python meets Dr Dr seuss surreal absurd literally. This is the game with you. Would milk butterflies collect milk. You would squeeze eggs. Squeezed chickens to get eggs anyway was very How did you raise? Money are around that I think the fact that we had been successful before but is also right at this interesting juncture where it was around round the year that android came out around the year that iphones actually started to take off and suddenly. There's this massive shift in people's discretionary Internet time from desktop and laptop stopping heaters to mobile's we had made a bat on Flash AS TECHNOLOGY FOR DELIVERING The game which wasn't going to work on mobile's and in the end that that really was the nail in the coffin. If it hadn't been for that I think it would have been worth trying a little bit more but I was committed in everyday came in with optimism and that was sure that this next thing that we were going to try it was going to work and then we did it and it didn't work but by the end I think the kind of technological dead end we had find or sounds going down the fact that it was desktop only a world that was going increasingly mobile the fact that it was already so hard to explain made it really tough. Despite the fact that there it was a super committed very enthusiastic audience I just lost faith and I realized then like once I had done that it was now.

Wall Street Gets Some Slack

Wall Street Gets Some Slack

"And guys slack making its Wall Street debut on Thursday. Now, this is not your traditional IPO direct listing. We'll talk about that a minute. The ticker symbol is W, O, R K nine work now slack for those unfamiliar is a cloud based, instant messaging type platform for the workplace we use it here, the motley fool we use it to prep for the show, so we are big users, but Andy, I want to know about the stock. What about slack as an invest? Well, it's really interesting. I it's a, it's a I think it will be a very I think it'll be very well, received IPO now as a direct listing doesn't have the support of these underwriters. It has it has Merrill, Lynch, and Morgan Stanley, and has Goldman Sachs helping to make the company go public, but it's not like they are issuing new shares. So slack is not benefiting at all their bid, they're not they're not getting any money from this and not raising capital from this. They are simply a private company one day and the public company in the next with some help with some of those, those banks and up the buyers and sellers. But the company itself is it is really come on. You just think about how we're using this to the motley fool, they have more than six hundred thousand total customers only about one hundred thousand of those are actually paying so they have about five hundred thousand who used their free solution that can get you started into slack. It's a collaborative tool. It's a workplace tool. Stewart Butterfield who founded the company who founded also flicker great name. Yes. A great name. And then he and the CTO at slack, who was also chief, who was also tech leader at flicker before it sold out to Yahoo. They had Dave co-founded slack. They're both very involved and they own a lot of stocks to Butterfield owns probably north of billion dollars worth depending on where the shares trade today, but he owns more than forty two million shares. So. It has just when you think about this push towards collaborative tools, collaborative work environments, the so-called SAS Baso software driven cloud base architecture. That's helping companies that just work better and more efficiently including the motley fool, but they have loads and loads customers. Two thirds of the fortune one hundred are slack customers MAC? So this is not just some small company, the valuation was probably around sixteen billion, and we'll see where the shares trade after today. I do think it will be a successful IPO. I think the demand for the stock will be there. Interestingly, the company is still a small company from a revenue perspective. Really maybe one hundred thirty five million dollars for the last quarter in revenue still not profitable. So we have a company trading around thirty four times trailing. But doubling the new sales are doubling the growth is there and that's what you need to see when you see a company trading at that kind of valuation. So I think it will do. Well, interestingly. You'll only probably get about half of the shares available for trading the six top institutional shareholders control about sixty percent of the stock if they're not sellers that you're not gonna see a lot of float out there. So it's going to be interesting to see how the supply and demand shakeout and that will, of course, affect the stock price and how it trades. And that's what the direct listing so fascinating MAC. Because it needs this needs the buyers and sellers as Ron often says, hey, takes to make a trade will you need the buyers and sellers. And it doesn't have the underwriters to help really facilitate that, so sorry. They will help manage it, but they're not since a company's not issuing new shares the really at the whims of the buyers and sellers. In Andy, you mentioned, the COO earlier, Stewart Butterfield. He said, in a CNBC interview that companies will phase out Email over the next five to seven years. Now. He said that the broader world of Email will stick around we'll still be around, but the companies will phase out Email over the next five to seven years. Is that what has to happen for slow? Lack to succeed. No, it doesn't have to happen. I think E mail will still have some place in there. And let's just be clear. Slackers focus really on the corporate, and the work environment. So they're not really talking about like individual usage. So, like, you know, the killer app from the text messaging Tex-Mex, gene with iphones, and Google all that kind of stuff. Right. So this is really focused on the work environment. So Email may still be around the volume of Email here at the Molly full since we've used slack, I think, has fallen by more than half, maybe even two thirds or so. So our volume of Email flow has dropped dramatically as we continue to use slack. I don't think it Email needs to vanish. And in fact, slack has a lot of the they tie into thousands of different apps, and to API she'd be able to coordinate and, and partner with different applications, including Email. So it doesn't need to happen. But I think he's probably right. The work Email flow will dramatically change over the next five years. So for someone who doesn't know much about slack who may not have it in their workplace. Win win. Are you using slack versus Email? What, what has slack replaced in terms of Email? Well in our preparation for this radio show. I was using slack, for example, and you kind of went quiet issues entering time using it, most of the time. But then he switched to Email sent me an Email. I was. A true or false you may have been late for our taping. It is. That is true. I was really only because there was no official start time. So you can't be laid if there's no starts. Let's not nitpick. Let's not w slack is at its best in my opinion when it's used for short kind of correspondence projects. No. But that's the word not for projects. I think Email is better for project has agreed. With continuing ongoing threats to live event. You have tach moments. You, you have things you want to, you know, keep for long, periods of time, maybe file into folders. I think slack is better for short bursts, like all the software applications. It's not perfect. But I think it is intermarriage improvement. I mean and by the way, there were lots of other companies try and do this Yamen, which I think was bought by maybe Microsoft, and there, there have others who have done this over the years slack had built a solution me it's only been around since two thousand fourteen I think, so they build a solution. That is integrated it is cloud. I it is really focused on helping. Improve the collaboration. So there are times, I think, Iran's, right? There are times when it's bed, and there are times when it's not, although I see it with the lot of the integrations in other software applications getting better. But I agree with Ron. We've talked a lot about this is that it's really good for like, quick, hit, little communications knowledge sharing that kind of thing if you start getting any more robust conversations at least from my experience, that's where more conversations really need to happen slacken help drive that. And by the way, there's now slack video and you can slack. Call up told really is becoming they talk about communications and collaboration money talk about slack. And that's really what they're trying to

Slack stock surges at debut, values company at more than $25 billion

"Well slack technologies, of course, making its debut as a publicly held company, and that was at the new York Stock Exchange stock. We heard from Charlie up about forty eight percent here in its first day of trading or Emily Chang, on Bloomberg television, cut up with the CEO of slack, Stewart Butterfield. And they talked about the business, bringing in more cash than me, put out on a non going basis is a priority because it allows us to control their own destiny. The ideal for us, though is that we continually find new ways the new opportunities to invest to further the business that we don't need a lot of free cash flow. But just a little bit. All right. Well investors seem pretty excited about what they heard from slack. Let's understand what they're seeing in this business a little bit about how they got to market, as they say, Mendy, sing senior tech industry analysts for Bloomberg intelligence. He's back in our Bloomberg interactive brokers studio. Mandy, you're our expert on these things. What did we see today once slack was really out in the public a one thing is fairly obvious that there is a lot of investor in two zero around, you know, cloud subscription businesses, especially on that deprives side, because the revenue stream is so predictable these in case oh slack. It's growing top line at over fifty percent. So there is demand for P. I think the concern for single product companies, you know, on the cloud is how sustainable that top line growth is. And you know once you hit a billion dollars. I think you're going to see growth taper down. So, but investors aren't focus. Passing on

"Went back to Michael Butterfield zodiac expert you heard in the first episode. He was just very fortunate in the sense that none of those bullets hit him in vital area. And that's just pure luck. That bullet might have gone right through his head. So he's very lucky to be alive, and like most people who survived those kinds of traumatic events this probably a certain amount of guilt attached to that wondering, why did I survive why did she die? And then also there's the horrifying realization of how close you came to dying. There's no way that you can forget about that every day. You're if you feel the pain of that bullet, you've see the scars, you know, how close you came to dying, and especially watching someone die right next to you. That's gotta be chilling. Michael Michaud has struggled a great deal with this over the years. Not everyone walks away from a tragedy intact, Ed rust the cop. You heard earlier not only arrived on the Zodiac's second gruesome scene. He also interviewed Michael Mojo in the hospital the morning after the attack. We wish rarely injured was under sedation. But it was able to speak with me, and I enter viewed him at length. He was able to tell me that Darlene had picked him up, but his house they had some kind of sociation. I'm not sure just what she drove them out to blue springs park, and they pulled into the parking lot, and it was empty at the time this pretty late at night. He said they were sitting in the car talking about things and a carload of young people pulled up next to them and yelled and holler a bit and drove off and shortly after that car pulled up behind them driver got out walked up to his side of the car carrying a hand held flashlight. Michael majoria send it was a police officer and was trying to get his wallet out as I walked up and was standing right next to his open window didn't say anything at all to and suddenly pulled a gun up and started shooting. Michael israel. He was hit struck several times. And he literally climbed over the seat into the backseat of little Corvair. Scherzer's kept going, and he said this person actually reached it and shot him at least once or twice while he was in the back seat. After several shots and nothing said whatsoever. He heard card or slam. The lights disappeared. And the vehicle drove off he believes toward Vallejo. He then was able to reach an open the passenger so door had been set in and was able to climb out and he fell down on the ground. And that's where he was when the first police officer did coughed on ride. He said he tried to talk to Dr Lene, the she never did Asir Michael macho the life of terror after this. Heavily involved in drugs. And he just got completely out of it. I'd like to see this case solved. And I think that can be solved, but. It just hasn't. I don't I'm done just kinda burned out them down. But the whole whole situation. Everything I was there that night. And obviously I saw what the guy did to this two young kids. And I I wanna see the person that did it held.
