Lesson Learned

Today a friend reminded me of this iconic Paul Graham essay in which he publishes the emails between him and Fred Wilson while he was trying to convince Fred to invest in Airbnb.

To me this is one of my most favorite reads along with the linked Fred post in the essay. When I read it some time ago I was impressed by seeing Fred admitting how he missed it, and by how a random guy like myself sitting in Egypt can see something of what’s happening in the Mecca of tech, while being surrounded by people who mostly don’t get it.

I hope one day to make a difference by working on something that gets big, and to have the desire to write about it, and inspire others as I was inspired by Fred and Paul’s posts.
