LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman was an early
investor in Facebook, and has seen founder Mark Zuckerberg grow from a
kid looking for an investment and to a powerful peer in Silicon Valley.
Hoffman joined Business Insider’s podcast, “Success! How I Did It,” and
shared how Zuckerberg has evolved.
Reid Hoffman: One of the great delights in working
with Mark through kind of the early days to now is that Mark has
demonstrated literally the most spectacular learning and adaptation
curve that I’ve ever seen in a young entrepreneur to now, an experienced
and highly capable CEO. I am learning from a bunch of things that he
does. And it started with being kind of quiet, because I think he was
trying to figure things out, not particularly graceful in a meeting, to
being a very smart executive who understands principles of management,
and then continues to make bold bets that initially other people think
are kind of crazy, like buying WhatsApp, or Oculus. Oculus, we’ll see
we’re it plays out, but WhatsApp is clearly a massive bet that turns out
to be super smart. A number of people – myself included – thought that
the purchase of Instagram was sharp. But again, it was like “what, you
spent a billion dollars for a company that has 13 people in it and no
revenue?” That kind of thing is simply amazing. And I think the truth of
the matter is, a combination of Zuckerberg has an amazing learning
curve, and also has a true north, where he’s trying to say “how do I
make the world more connected, in a way that enables people to
understand each other better, to communicate better, to share
experiences better?” Because if we do that, overall the world will be a
L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)
A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .
They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.
According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.
The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.
He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.
When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.
But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.
Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.
“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.
