Lebanon twits final destination in my dad's case Northern California or his hometown New York City. My Dad's entire career and pot smuggling was as a middleman and he was a pot. Distributor is never smalltime street dealer in a sketchy alleyway you never sold ounces. The actually laughed in my face when I asked if he ever sold just one pound sounded a time we get hundreds or thousands of tons of pot from the smugglers who took it off the boats that came into San Francisco Bay. This pot would go to my dad's secure location. He would then transport the pot to a few of his trusted associates who would in turn sell it and smaller and smaller amounts down the smuggling food chains. If the POD came in San Francisco Bay usually from South America or South Asia. My Dad would transport it to his guy in New York City. Alternatively if my dad ED supplier in New York City his code blondie how the load come into the New York City harbor usually from the Middle East. My Dad would get a ton or more by the way in two thousand pounds and he would move in across country and distribute it to the people in San Francisco Bay area however it wasn't organized. Remember this is disorganized. Crime loads loads just SORTA came in and found out very loose Manhattan work with groups just a handful of lifelong trusted friends who are still lifelong trusted friends. The relationships formed or similar to the bonds formed by soldiers and war. My Dad and his associates trusted each other implicitly and integrity was everything you are as good as your word Now on on the night of my birth. I Dad made three big mistakes on this trip known as the Second Panama Red Trip my dad handed off the pot. He had add that he had stored in the secret room and the Hobbit House to three drivers known as the Brooklyn Boys who moved it for Marin county to New York City. That was the first mistake doc. Young stupid kids. Yeah young stupid kids from Brooklyn who who likes getting high and we're real psychedelic sized vegetarian. Kids it's finally their registrations but what we're getting at. Is that these young inexperienced kids who didn't take take extra precautions when hauling loads of pot across the country like when my dad was more established he would never get high while working that was reserved for after if the trip was successful. Well these kids. They wanted to have fun on the job. The next mistake was the flashy. spank a new vehicle. My Dad had provided for transporting the loads across the country. There was really a a stupidity of a errors because the truck I bought to do this. We decided we got a new the fanciest big four wheeled GMC pickup. It was room right off the lot. Remember that Whiten Yellow Orange would yet. What was it white goal? Oh I remember it very clearly the way I look at things you wanted to have the best of everything the bed but that was really part of the stupid thing because we had right right. We had kids who looked like hippies smoking pot all through it and the whole fucking bed was filled that we built the bed and we put in three hundred under fifty pounds under this bed that we built in the in the back of the truck in the in the pickup bed. It shouldn't have been a new truck. Tuck it was too flashy truck for these scrunchy looking twenty four year olds. I shouldn't have done that and I shouldn't give them my profit I. I should've just take him on and kept it. Say and so their office. I would sell it on the third mistake. And the most critical was that my dad fronted all of his prophets in this last truckload basically the Brooklyn boys had already transported several loads of pot.

The bank are taken over by large bank union bank and it was like night and day difference instead of talking to the c._e._o. When i had a need or my representative it was a call center and the relationship soured quickly and it got me thinking why the personal touch is not only important from the consumer's. It's important from the bank side so i got thinking thinking. Is there a way we could use software to bring back community.

"Look here is the thing about kids one of the things. Anyway, they got gotta get places. And then they gotta get home from those places and things are just different in this economy than they used to be. It's different for parents working at different around the whole idea of latch key kids. It's also different by the way in the age of Uber. Rebecca Howell wrote for wired about the industry being built around getting kids around thanks for being here. Hi, thanks for having me. Henry you I'm wolf thank you. I'm well. So look, let me ask you first of all, and this might seem a really boneheaded question. But why can't Uber? Just be for kids. What do you need a special company or a special apt to be Uber for kids if you know what I mean? Yeah. Sure. Well, right now over according to its terms and services agreement does not want unaccompanied minors on its service. It says the minimum age to ride is eighteen so technically, you're not allowed and Uber drivers aren't quipped to or prepared to be taking care of children. So. These companies have served stepped in to do that. What is then the differentiator for these companies because there are a bunch of Matt their most Marin, California as it happens. But what's when I guess what are the services they offer? So unlike Hoover, or lift you typically would order the night before what they offer essentially our drivers who are extremely background checked or interviewed have their cars expected. They're driving records are looked at. And most of them have a significant amount of child care experience. Sure just on that scheduling thing. So so the deal is that I can't say put a hub skip drive, which is one of these companies on my fourteen year olds phone, and then when he gets out of soccer practice, he can just dial one up, right? That's not the way it works. Not typically the ideas that your child would know when soccer practice ends each Thursday or Tuesday. And do you also the parents would want time to make sure that they're comfortable with the driver? You would get sent the driver info the day before. So you. Would have that information to make sure you're comfortable? So it's not as on demand as sort of Uber lifted, but it's sort of has the ease of being able to track the ride, and you have the optimization sort of benefit of only needing it. When you need you don't need to hire. A babysitter for the entire afternoon. Just because you're you have two kids that need to get from point A point B look show. Let's cut to the chase here. How much is all this gonna cost me? Right. Because I cannot imagine that pre scheduling all these things. Now, having a safety check driver and inspected car, it's not going to be cheap. Right. Yeah. It's certainly a bit more expensive than something like an Uber or a lift ride soon. For instance, one of the services says that they're ride start sixteen dollars and then at six dollars for every fifteen minute increment, but you can also sort of buy in bulk in the sense that if you always know your kids going to need soccer practice pickup you can sort of buy that in advance for the month. Is there one of these that is going to win out in this competition because as you lay out in this article there have been well, at least at least. A couple several even that have failed. Right. I think that will be interesting to sort of look forward in the future is how they kind of expand relationships with the schools, and I think that might that might come into play. And then another thing to sort of look out for as well as how whether they tried to expand in terms of older Americans as well who also need help getting around and could really use a service like this as well. So I think which companies that are comes out on top will really depend on that. But these ones I think zoom can go and hop. Skip driver doing pretty well right now Rebecca hall while reading for wondered about kid oriented Rogers, Rebecca, thanks loppers, Utah links so much you too..

Well, what I thought they were going to be mustered or Tope colored solar panels racking systems because her belief was that women were some of the big decision makers in the purchase of solar. And if in their ugly, and if they made an intimate sense to me, so what happened was not as many people were buying the mustard or toke colored panels as she thought, and I. Ask her why? And I go on she's selling all these rich people said, they don't have the money upfront for it. And I had this Piff any of the idea of why not create a financing company to finance solar panels. And if the financing product would be correctly, designed the consumers would pay less than the cost of energy from their utility Bill in want to sign up for that. And that actually worked out I wrote some software that helped the installer do their job. And then they all ran the software, and then we introduced a financing product. Eventually, I mean, there was a lot of twists and turns now Kleiner Perkins is one of the investors in this in this company who are the other venture folks are Claremont creek ventures, Google, clean Pacific ventures and a lot of individual angels, including myself were you at all worried that your reputation would be tainted in this new chapter of yours as you were raising capital. For instance, I was a little bit. The good news is investors want to make money, and you know, any challenges in reputation stop when you have a good idea. They wanna make money. They don't care about the past as much. I found is an investor. I'm kinda like that too. This time around you brought in a CEO you knew you didn't want to be the CEO is that just a matter of growing up. I mean, you were thirty you're in your late twenties early thirties when you were launching match dot com and trying to run it is there anything else that that is attributable to this change of her. Jessica someone hits you on the head enough time. She remember like, oh, I don't wanna be hit on the head. So I remembered I'm not that good of a manager of people. Why don't I find someone who is a good manager of people? Now, your other companies socio Graham X, which you launched in two thousand ten is a financial service company that facilitates lending to the under banked, and you're using social media tools to help determine credit worthiness. What's an example of a social media tool that? You might use to influence responsible. View clear example today when someone applies for a loan if they can't find them in the credit bureau. They're usually just an I'd you know laterally, but there's a lot of people who aren't in the credit bureau or don't have an extensive credit. File we believe that using social media finding their profiles out there and other traces of them and other ways of verifying their real people with real jobs. That's good enough reasons lend tomb your idea for socio Graham came from a personal place. What is that story briefly? So I had a great relationship with a Bank in Marin, California. And I knew the officers there. They knew my story. They knew my situation, and they could tailor products in services to me the Bank taken over by a large Bank Union Bank. And it was like night and day difference instead of talking to the CEO when I had a need or my Representative. It was a call center and the relationship soured quickly. And it got me thinking why the personal touch is not only important from the consumer's it's important from the Bank side. So I got thinking is there a way we could use software to bring back community lending, one of our ideas is start bringing back essays and having people write about what they're going to do with the money. And what's there have been history of repayment as and I think there's a lot of efficacy to that. Thank you very much for

Since it became so easy for people to buy. I think it's it's, it's a really interesting question, and I think one of the things is that we are seeing more a higher level of donations are donations were up last year by about two percent, but that that was in the context of three of our larger donation sites us closing those. And so we're still saw two percent increase year over year and and a lot of that are things that people are purchasing online and men are donating goodwill. So the good news is, is that we're a nonprofit were social enterprise. We hire people in our businesses to as a training ground, so folks who would otherwise be unemployable. So there's some good a lot of good coming from that. On the other hand, when folks are what happens upstream with manufacturers, and when people are are manufacturing cheaper goods, and those some of those things are not reusable or recyclable. That creates a. Downstream problem, right? So at the end of the day, it's there's, you know, we know that the resell business is a growing industry significantly growing industry. We know that about sixteen to eighteen percent of Americans are gonna shop thrift this year, and and so that's a growing industry. And so the the other piece of this is that there are a lot of folks who don't have credit cards. We a lot of low income folks who are not participating in the online economy, and what happens when the rebel to go to a thrift store come to goodwill is that they're able to get items that people have discarded, but they would otherwise not be able to get at even cheaper price in fact than people who spent online.

Doing this alone that they could be hurt or attacked real concern and it's quite a conundrum, there's arguments by the ACLU that they, have the right to be there There have been lawsuits and it's a very detailed a difficult problem to manage and it happens in cities all across the country but if you spend any time along the river in Pittsburgh. You'll see they seem to. Be living there intense and I'm telling you they have they have laptops Hey hey, Brad go ahead Yeah I was in. California a couple of times I.
