"And that at my current trajectory as a person who travels 70% of the year, spends a lot of time on work and the internet rather than in the rhythm of a normal job and life, and as a perpetual bachelor, it was clear that I would be an unlikely candidate to hear or say anything remotely like the touching words in those speeches." - Part of the Problem (Brian Lam for Medium)
"But seven years is long enough for just about anything. I guess you could say I got the itch. But it’s not yet an itch to do anything – more of a desire to nothing." - Bye Bye Revision3 and Discovery! (Jim Louderback for Louderback.com)
"Knowing when to fold your cards is the most under-valued skill of an entrepreneur. In fact, as Seth says, ‘Winners quit fast, quit often and quit without guilt.’" - Why Quitting is Winning (Rahim Fazal for Founder Dating)
"Enter the douche ex machina here to ruin the day: the self-righteous friend complaining via Facebook about people not following the rules, the person who texts you a meme about African children without water, or the journalist/media commentator who needs to find a way to call out "hashtag activism." We took something that by all accounts is a success and found a way to make it terrible.
The worst people aren’t the hashtag activists—they’re the ones sitting behind their computers and typing angry prose of disapproval. You know the type, the ones who point out how unrealistic something is when they’re watching a Seth Rogen movie. We know the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge isn’t perfect, just like we know that Seth Rogen couldn’t possibly launch into the ceiling if he sat on an airbag. But that doesn’t mean we need to frantically wave our hands in the air about how not everyone donated, that we should’ve donated the money we spent on ice instead, or that we’re “wasting” buckets of water on our heads.” - The Worst Part of the Ice Bucket Challenge Is the People Criticizing It (Angelina Fanous for Vice)
