"All right. Let's move on to our next topic. Okay. Jason this one's near and dear to your heart. Since you've spent the last year running and exceleron, let's talk about acceleration incubators. So I think the the question to ask as a founder is is a exceleron or is an incubator for me, you know, who who exactly is at four. Yeah. I mean, it's it's a great question because they're certainly not for everybody. And it depends on the stage of your company to, but I think one of the biggest upsides I've seen is the Amine. Not oh, it's it's hugely helpful for fundraising for one. But the network you build it's one of my favorite things of the accelerator from started when we were in, you know, launch incubator too. So those early days of the class going from week one to week twelve not only are there pitches better in their confidence in themselves in the company better. But they're best friends. You know, they have this. They have a cohort. Now that, you know, they're going through something that everyone else in the room is also going with going through, and it's being a founder can be very lonely. So having that network is important. And then, of course, the network outside of that or the investors and everyone else, that's that's part of you know, in our case of part of the launch network is is hugely hugely helpful. You know, it's the negatives. I sort of only only the positives of accelerator I watched that growth. But I think some founders the push back that we've that we've gotten from founders is that they don't wanna give equity in their company, right, which is reasonable reasonable. Sure. Sure. A second or third time founder the idea of going to an accelerator to build your network. If you're Mark Pincus or Evan Williams in twenty nineteen makes no sense. But if you were Evan Williams, the founder of Twitter, and blogger before that medium now may have very much wanted to, you know, have blogger be part of an accelerator those existed back then because they do kind of get you to second or third base. Which accelerators incubators, do you think are a no brainer to go to Jason? I mean, obviously Majdic celebrate a we like to believe ours is world class. Putting aside when you hear somebody's gone to X or Y accelerator, which was you can Ligo that seems like that would increase the value of the company, and then we won't deride any other ones, but let's talk a little bit. But candidly about what the downside is going to one that maybe isn't in that upper echelons upper-echelon, and what's the benefit of that. And then let's go into the next piece. So I think the the accelerator incubators that you know. We aspire to continue to work towards have inspired us as well. Why see why combinator Techstars as well? Both of them have built phenomenal programs. And then of course, we think we've done we we think we've built something special here as well. And then. We do see founders doing a an incubator or an accelerator hop. So. And this is something that. Founders can get can can fall in love with kind of the process to to Ashley's point building this commodity. With your classmates is fun and having this kind of twelve weeks sprint or sixteen weeks. Sprint of working towards something can can be a lot of fun. But it can also be productive. Right. I mean, it could rally the troops to try to accomplish something in a short period of time. We've heard that as well. Let's creases focus and performance true. Downside. It could also be potentially distracting. So if if it's taking you away from building out your team focusing on sales and kind of you know, quote doing homework while they may on the purples be helpful to the company. It may not be kind of the core thing that the founder needs to be spending time with and it also has a bit of a sign if you do have to keep going to multiple incubators accelerators that you just keep giving up a additional equity can you need to graduate at some point. And so what point what point is too much? Do you think curious to know your thoughts on that? Yeah. I I have seen companies have done three or four exceleron..

"So a spoiler is kind of like an intellectual property land mine. So once you've watched episode seventeen you've exploded that mine. But now you have that intellectual property if you tell someone else, then you're spoiling that Netflix series for that person. And worse, you are devaluing the IP for Netflix or Amazon whoever ever it is. That's depending on those little spoiler bombs to go off and right in the right sequence. And that's kind of silly. Is there a spoiler in in twin peaks is there a spoiler in in. Eyes wide shut you know, like like what happened. I've seen. It a nice still can't give you a spoiler. So good. Right. It's not because it doesn't have an answer as such, you know, and and if we don't if we don't have space in our art and culture for answerless questions, then we certainly aren't going to have the tolerance for them in our world. And that's the real world that we're living in is dealing with unanswerable questions. How do we deal with poverty? How do we deal with with climate? How do we deal with these chronic ongoing sorts of problems that aren't going to be definitively completely solved? I feel like this to me that really helped me the book really jailed in that moment because it's a your you make a lot of you. You you describe a lot of things that that add up in sort of the format of the book is set up that way with the aphorism format. Right. And it's sort of death by thousand cuts thing where you're. Okay. I'm really the really gelling here. The the idea of these algorithms and these institutions trying to predict human behavior in like maximize whatever it is their goals are and then turning around. And now they're like actually influencing human behavior toward those goals instead of just trying to make sense of them or understand them. Those reminded me Evan his name. Evan williams. The the Twitter guy was he said that if you drive down the road, and you see a car crash, you're going to look everybody's going to look, but you know, the internet interprets that as that's what everybody wants in. So it supplies that because that's guaranteed engagement. And then you're the internet is just car crashes in you sort of talk about that in your Mimetic warfare. So like if you could speak to that element of the book about Mimetic warfare in how these algorithms are you have like figured out how how to sort of piggyback. On these visceral responses to a certain kind of content, and then now, it's sort of warping the way we interact with one another and the internet itself. Well, it's not just I mean, it's not just the algorithms that are doing that. It's it's our president who's doing that you this is the the the formula of reality TV say is to take footage of real life. And then edit and recombine it in such a way as to tell sensationalist car crash like story, no matter what really happened. So you sort of edit reality to make it more sensationalist. So that people stop with the remote and look at you know, the girl being embarrassed or the guy being, you know, runned over whatever that that that whatever we want to concoct. So it's really hard for reality which may be boring at times. Or confusing are unresolved to compete against what you know, what what Trump or another politician might say happened. So you you it's sort of this competition. And this is what medics is at this point. It's a competition for whose words go on top of that picture. So you see a picture of a bunch of poor people walking with little packs, and you look at that picture on MSNBC. And it says, you know, migrant caravan refugees, hungry, you know, mothers and children escaping violence and rape looking for safe haven. And then, you know, you go onto FOX, and you can see Trump's label on that which is America's being invaded..
"evan williams" Discussed on Inside the Hive with Nick Bilton
"I think that you know hindsight is twenty twenty and. And Kevin system clearly thinks that he's one of the product geniuses of our time, and he did build an incredible product. But I remember when when it all came out when when Instagram I launch and and it wasn't, they didn't invent Instagram. They invented a company called bourbon, which was about documentary. You get. That's a that is definitely forgotten in the story of Instagram, and it's one of those sort of like ridiculously serendipitous Silicon Valley tails. Well, look, I mean, every company is is an accidental offshoot of a company that failed in Silicon Valley, not everyone, but most of them, Twitter, of course, was a failed podcasting company Odio or satellite. Yo- an Instagram was a failed. Kind of like trying to be a foursquare dodgeball kind of thing where you you were at a bar music, a picture of your drink, and you said what you thought of the bar and now you're the mayor and then the mayor. But this is what, Tom, this is what bourbon was, which was what Kevin system created. So what the fascinating part is. So back in the Odio days before Twitter, when Jack Dorsey was just like the lowest level person at at the company, Evan Williams was running it, Noah glass and all these folks. There was an intern that came in from Stanford and his name was Kevin system and Kevin ended up becoming friendly with Jack Dorsey. He leaves it goes back to school and then comes up with this. I dare to do this bourbon thing at this point in time, Jack doors, he's been fired from Twitter, and he's trying to make a comeback, and Jack ends up investing in Burma n- and gets a part of this company and then bourbon. What happens is people start using this this service that you're supposed to be designed for drinks and they're using it for the. Really cool photo filters that they had built. Right. And so they're taking a picture of NADA drink of sunset or cappuccino or their dog applying the photo filter and then saving it their phone and then tweeting or posting it on Facebook and the founders of of of what would become Instagram realized, oh, they're not using the thing we built. They're using part of it. Let's get rid of the stuff they're not using. And that was that was what becomes so fascinating is Jack Dorsey was one of the people who really kind of put it on the map because he was tweeting about a little time. He was talking about it all the time. I remember him in system went to go get tacos one day, and that was how I learned about it, and they posted something. It was really, really early on us angels history, and he was he was an angel or a low level investor. Okay. But had a significant amount of equity in breeze incentivized to publicize incentivize? Yeah, and he doesn't doesn't realize what it's going to be clearly. So fast forward Dorsey comes back to Twitter. Instagram's blowing up, you know, millions of users, soul anyone can talk about or anything. And anyone talks about end and Dorsey tries to buy it Dorsey and costlo at the time who was running Twitter then, and there's they're get pretty close. And what it turns out is the Kevin system had been using them as kind of a way to then go to to Mark Zuckerberg and get more money and re and keep the title of CEO. Because if he had assaulted Twitter, he would not have been the CEO anymore. Would just been been incorporated or. Yeah, and Zuckerberg who I think one of his genius is that he understands what makes people want things and how they operate. He knew that sister wanted to be CEO and and so when Facebook acquires Instagram, I, you know, I remember Jenna worth him at the times, wrote this big front page story. It was. Big deal like it was a billion dollar acquis today in billion dollar acquisition, you wouldn't even it wouldn't even be a blog post. It was also it was a twelve person company that point, right? There's twelve person, thirteen twelve, thirteen person company. You know a ironically enough. A lot of the people that work there got screwed system hadn't actually signed some of the paperwork so they didn't get the stock. Yeah, which is which is wild actually know a couple of people and or they didn't get the stock they had been promised may have got a little, but but the the, the thing that is so interesting is is Jack Dorsey..
"evan williams" Discussed on Inside the Hive with Nick Bilton
"It was that he was a famous meaning that I wrote about in hatching Twitter in the book where. They suck was trying to buy the company at the time. Dorsey wasn't even there. He'd been fired, and Evan Williams was running the company and they went down to to to Mark's house in Palo Alto and had this all could meeting where there wasn't enough places to sit and there's lawyers in the room and marks, you know, is the second time you try to buy it and after after they left, he he looked over at his his colleagues and friends and said, you know, it's like a a clown car that drove into a gold mine and fell in. And I, what am I favored tweets ever was Jason Goldman who was actually, I think at that meeting who later went to go work for the White House tweeted and said, it lists it was a fun clown car something along those lines. But the it's true though. It really is. I mean, this is a company that. Has always been kind of in a perpetual state of chaos, no matter whether it's internally or externally end. I think that what what I have heard is that you know if Jack is not gonna ban Alex Jones and and he he doesn't want to at this point because it's gonna make him look bad. Jack, it's awful though. It's about optics at this point, but yeah. Oh, yeah. I know it's just disgusting. But but but if that is the case, then I think what happens is Jack house to solve the problem by by solving many problems. And so that's what you're seeing. Now, he spoke to the Washington Post about rethinking the whole engagement of Twitter and likes and re tweets and replies, and the things you see time. And so I think that the the, what you'll see happen is that will be an about face, but it will be one that will be done in in a very kind of privately public way where Jack doesn't look bad. The question that I have and every single person I've spoken to has how long is Jack and put up with Dell Harvey making. Mistake after the other before he starts to make a change and no, Jack knows the answer to that yet. The Dell Harvey timebomb has been taken for longtime are calling my caused a really to leading story about Dell couple months ago. At this point end she is, you know, that sort of lightning rod, Silicon Valley executive who has certainly plenty of defenders. But boy, are there a lot of people who are frustrated with the job that she's done and who really view her fairly or not as the the person responsible for how the platform has been misused. I mean, yeah, the the, the craziest thing was with this stuff. They put out a release that some Jack tweets, four, four or five tweet saying that they're not going to ban him because he hasn't violated any of the rules. And I think probably pretty quickly afterwards, he realized that that may not be the case. So he tweets a or maybe didn't realize, but so then he tw-. Tweets, a screen shot of or re tweets. Dell who had treated a screen shot of the reason why they hadn't been Alex Jones in the rules and everything. And then del runs a team of last. I heard it was around seventy eighty people not including freelancers and all these. I mean, there's a lot of people that are under her that she has control of that can you know, search Alex Jones, Twitter account pretty quickly. And yet you had Alva Darcy over at CNN who's been a few minutes and quickly found a dozen instances where he very clearly had violated the terms of service in the same way that had justified YouTube and and all these other platforms and apple kicking him kicking out Jones off. And so one thing about jacked understand his, he's very aware of every little detail of optics. It's one of his like his specialties. He's really, really good at it. And so it was interesting that he didn't put out. He didn't tweet a letter. I just sent to the to the whole company about how why I decided not to push Alex Jones. He tweeted Dell's. And that is the one signed to me..
