Yes, the one-person billion dollar companies are coming.

They are targeting an IPO in ‘25
Valued at $12.3B in Jan ‘22; what would it be worth today?
I was thinking about how a financial crisis works and the repeating pattern of hype to collapse and it weirdly goes back to 1720 (and probably before)...
Interesting fact, I'm noticing more repeat founders self-funding their own seed rounds. They can go big on their own terms while having the flexibility to bootstrap or raise a big round after product/market fit.
I think "bootstrapping" or "angel investing" in your own ideas will become more of a badge of honor and the ultimate flex. Also, cost to start a company has gone down, especially with more remote work and no need for an office to get started.
If you built an audience before, the CAC has gone down and the speed to get first 100 customers is much faster.
I do believe that RWAs (real world assets) have a digital future, and eventually, all assets will become digital or have their digital clone to simplify liquidity.
Haven't been following crypto for a while, but those numbers are impressive.
You might notice that some of the most interesting people on the planet are those who create new things. We experience life by doing something, and people who accomplish more in their lifetime are usually the most ‘experienced’.
After spending a meaningful amount of time with some of the most interesting and successful creators/entrepreneurs, I put together ten working theories — observations that I found useful for myself and hope can be useful for others.
2023 in review. A year of ups and downs.
Welcome to 2024!
A brand new look, dozens of new features, and, more importantly, new amazing creators. More news coming soon! ⚡🎉
Some 2024 Predictions
1. Everyone will have an AI friend. These characters can be a personalized tutor, work assistant, therapist, girlfriend, or all-of-the-above.
2. We will begin to see "one-and-done" seed stage rounds, where startups receive funding once and do not require additional rounds (unless they break out).
3. Dividend-paying tech startups will emerge as a new funding mechanism.
4. Being in good health will be the new status. More 30-year-olds will go on to build their personal health dashboards.
Balaji just announced a new rolling fund with some great LPs like Naval, Brian Armstrong, and others. Seems like it's a slow new trend of running funds publicly. It's quite shocking how little innovation was made in venture capital industry so far.
As we know any social network/community eventually becomes a group chat so I'm thinking to start my own. I've been thinking what's the best tool it might be...seems like Telegram wins these days?
- Slack is expensive
- Discord is chaotic
- Circle is too hard to consistently check
- WhatsApp is too simplistic
OpenAI drama...just wild.
Every new thing starts with an idea, a belief, or a passion. New ideas rarely come from nothing; they emerge from the things we love, are curious about, or inherit from other ideas that surround us. Read more in the new essay about creative process and how we create things.
Yesterday's presentation from OpenAI feels like we are in "that moment" again. Exciting stuff. Building something? Let's chat!
Open.AI got news for developers. Don't miss out on it.
Including models with 128K context, prior we had a 8k-32k window.
In the next weekend I will be testing some tools to see if it works better, since this was the only limitation that I faced for my more complex prompt's to materialize in code.
What has been your experience using AI tools so far? Let's talk about that!!
What about your opinion?
Designing a jacket that secretes coolness and is resistant to the hot rays of the sun, so that inside the jacket there is a tightly designed tube that benefits farmers, travelers, cleaners, the elderly, and tourists as well.

In terms of IDE,
I wonder what are the opinions tech leaders in the industry, when it comes to developing software:
- Installing IDEs locally on each developers machine, incurring in bugs with significant process tradeoffs;
- Web IDEs, with a company wide settings with decent user policies limiting the top 1% of developers.
Those web IDEs offer an increasing set of customization level, and offer an overall better employer experience too. But can limit experienced developers that know what plugins are safe and benefit greatly with vim motions when typing code.
I'll just leave it here!
After spending months working with modern artists and creators (small and big ones), it became pretty clear that they are not that much different from early/late-stage businesses.
Artists spend months and years finding their creator-market fit, creating, marketing, and monetizing their 'products.' So, are they really different?
I am a big believer that the biggest brands of the future might be individuals, rather than traditional companies. Yet, we are still not at that point, and the reason could be the "artistic" mindset.
Inspired by Paul Graham's "Startups in 13 Sentences," here are a few ideas on how those principles can help shift the 'artistic' mindset to a 'builder' mindset.

So far I have deployed a webscraper module that is in development. My blockers are limited token size per request, but hopefully I will overcome that problem in the future.
