@theeconomist "People who write headlines at the Economist make broad, overreaching assertions as clickbait."Alex Trebek goes to great lengths to awkwardly pronounce non-English words as though he speaks the language. But he can't get "OS X" right.

Thank heaven we have CNN to package up Twitter from the day and read it to us.@vsowers @pmarca Oh, I love that analogy. Not to be a bear, but I wish there were a mechanism for deep-out-of-the-money puts, too.

Wow. Just when I thought I'd seen it all, I get a LinkedIn message from a "Vice CEO." That's a very succinct oxymoron. #Millennials #omgwtf“Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away.” -Philip K Dick"By themselves, character and integrity don't accomplish anything.

Let's just start calling them Initial Private Offerings, shall we? Technically inaccurate, but it preserves the all-important acronym.What if the @nytimes wrote all of its headlines in clickbait-speak?@rmac18 I don't think the landlords have much to do with the rising rents, fwiw. It's more about the market dynamics. :)

@ilyasu FWIW, agony notwithstanding, we did this in two weekends of effort. It can be done! https://t.co/5cvZF0m1Qj@ilyasu We did it ourselves and it was hell. Couldn't find a service. Instead, IKEA, TaskRabbit, Handy and a marriage counselor got it done.@kfury But we need the rain to be *affordable* rain. No rain is better than expensive rain!Do people who believe a moratorium on SF housing construction will lower rents also believe the drought will lower water prices?

@Wunderlist, please fix the bug where the app takes up 99% of one CPU and WunderListHelper takes up 50% of the other? It's an old bug.booooo cavsIn one room, people watching the NBA. In another, board game night. The latter has the larger crowd. Ah... love my nerdy @Inkling peeps!.@migregor11 Your argument implies that @Zenefits' automated system is less secure than human @adp users. That's hard to defend… #ADPeevedI recommend shorting ADP.
Retweeted by Matt MacInnisI love that 50+ yr old @ADP is so threatened by 2-yr @Zenefits. Classic incumbent hubris. #disruption #ADPeeved http://t.co/mxh5d2fOev@beacongal lucky stoveIs it redundant to say "proactively prepare"?

@chinandrew All the things should be versioned, especially people.@chinandrew I don't have a special recipe, but I do blend it w/ casein. V1.3 was better than V1.4. Apparently v1.5 is good again. We'll see!I really like Soylent, but their marketing needs some help: the new v1.5 has an "unparalleled consumption experience." Uhh…

Resistance to changes in customer expectations is futile, so publishers better get busy changin, or get busy dyin. Pubs seem busy with both!

@pmarca Why can't you just pick a side already??@ghobs91 @valaafshar @calestous 2. He said "Using Twitter for *literate* communication," emphasis mine. I think the statement is true. ;-)@ghobs91 @valaafshar @calestous 1. It wasn't a quote from a NY Times writer; it was the writer quoting a science fiction writer.@valaafshar Never mind, found it: http://t.co/j2R4tVJMpv (cc @calestous)@valaafshar I searched NYT for that quote about Twitter but couldn't find it. Do you have a URL? (cc @calestous)@emilychangtv Looks like the "Silicon Valley" crew got the gender and ethnicity balance right *behind* the scenes, too!I wish my @AugustSmartLock actually worked more often. I have about a 25% success rate. 75% of the time? "Out of Range." Or "Checking lock."Wet dog > wet BART

Yeah, @shaig! @philzcoffee is da domb. Maybe you should just move back to SF… :)@ebolaphone Yeah, rude. And dumb. "I am looking for a company that I can help grow the business." Grammar ftw!@joshuaforman “Hi, I'd like to buy your company. Do you know that it takes time to raise capital? Pshaw! Just sell! And fire yourself!!”It just doesn't seem like this is the right way to buy my company. Or take my job. #stu #pid http://t.co/eGui1Wuq2b@josiah10000 Your reply would have been funnier if it had included an egregious grammar error, jfyi.@josiah10000 That article deserves the death penalty for crimes against grammar.I'm generally not in favor of the death penalty, but with #Tsarnaev, it's not worth the money to keep him in jail. Call me cheap.
