Apple Watch 3, EDU Disruption & Information Density āŒšļøšŸ“ššŸ“Š #37

Saving Time.

I originally bought an Apple watch to open myself to possibilities I couldn’t predict. Sometimes it’s best to say “yes” and explore rather than wonder.

Regularly I use the watch to quickly view messages and respond (often with a thumbs up or other emoticon), receive a phone call while I’m on the move / doing chores and it’s great to ask Siri to set timers for cooking (5 minutes works well for soft-boiled eggs).

I’m now happily wearing my new series 3 Apple watch and am impressed with the long battery life, being able to call people without the phone around and the faster speed. Well done Apple!

I’m looking forward to more accurate exercise (read: skiing) data and more time savings via Siri and the clever tech incorporated. I’ve found Siri improves the more I use/speak to her andĀ theĀ recent Apple eventĀ inspired me to explore more of the new functionality that’s increasingly like having an assistant… on your wrist!

I like these quotes from a couple of Apple watch reviews:

Roadtrip Meetings.

If autonomous cars change the interior layout of cars and you can eat, sleep, work, watch a movie, have a meeting… will you go on roadtrips with your colleagues? will the workforce be more ‘on the move’? Will people travel more? go to and stay in more remote places?

Happy travels…

A Quick Tip on Financial Diversification.

“I like a mix of cash (t-bills, money market funds, etc), blue chips stocks (Amazon, Google, etc), real estate (income producing with little to no leverage), and a risk bucket (venture capital, crypto, etc). I think 25% in each would be a good mix.” thanksĀ Fred.

  • Fred Wilson’sĀ tipsĀ on providing hope to others:“Of course, how you worry is critical. You canā€™t weigh down the leadership teams with your worries. You canā€™t fill up the board meetings with angst.You have to be supportive, optimistic, encouraging, and positive in your interactions with founder/leaders and their teams. But you must also flag areas where there could be trouble. Getting that balance right has been a work in progress for me for my entire career.So being a worrier is an important characteristic in an investor. But you have to mostly keep those worries to yourself and your partners/team (this is a place where partners are invaluable). And you have to decide when a worry is significant enough to share it with your portfolio companies and then you need to find the right moment and narrative to communicate it. When you do it right, the teams appreciate it immensely.”
