  1. “All the really exciting things I’ve learned, I learned after I graduated from school.” 
  2. It’s impossible to disentangle technology from the people who make it, which is why it’s so important to have diverse, representative teams building our tech.  
  3. Being able to align something you want to have happen in the world with your personality and your business model is the ultimate goal.
