I was recently a guest on the Leaders in Tech podcast. We covered a lot of ground, from my childhood and how I got interested in tech and AI, to many lessons I learned working in startups (first Plaxo, now Triller) and inside big companies (Google+, Google Photos, Google Assistant). In particular, the conversation focused on the advantages startups have when it comes to driving innovation, and why, despite their advantages in terms of resources and distribution, it’s hard to get the same results inside larger organizations. We finished with a discussion of how AI is likely to impact the careers of software engineers (my bet is it will remain more of an amplifier than a replacement for years to come).

I think this is one of the best summaries of my experience and thoughts on Silicon Valley and entrepreneurship that I’ve managed to capture. I hope you’ll find it useful and would love to hear your feedback!
