Back in 2013 I got an email from Jason Nazar announcing that his company DocStoc was being acquired by Intuit. But what was interesting to me was how he started the company back in 2006 as a site that helped you embed your documents on other sites, like MySpace. But the world changed and...

In the years that I’ve been doing these interviews, I’ve done a few with entrepreneurs who have built coding schools. At first it took me by surprise. How can a school do really, really well? That’s similar to the interview we have today but the twist is that today’s guest is really...

I want to try something different here. I feel like I’ve been having much more interesting conversations in private than I have online lately. I think the reason is that my guests are a little afraid to get as open and unguarded as they are in person. I’ve also been less risk-taking in my...

Today’s guest is a guy who had a grand vision. If you’re listening to me, you might also have one—but his seems even bigger. So big in fact, that his investors though he might have been high. They said he was trying to boil the ocean. Do way too much. Well, it turns out that it actually...
