I hope all of you are spending Memorial Day weekend relaxing in some Jimmy Buffet approved locale.
Tragically, I am not, though I am uncharacteristically ahead of the game preparing for the upcoming Train/Goo Goo Dolls/Allen Stone Electric Ensemble tour and, in theory, have Parrot themed shirts waiting for me in Spokane. Small victories.
Anyway, I took some time this afternoon to dig into a podcast with Tim Ferriss and Kevin Systrom, co-founder of Instagram.
I, like all of us, have a love/hate relationship with social media, but it was interesting learning about Instagram’s origin story, acquisition by our benevolent overlords, aka Facebook, and Systrom’s philosophies regarding entrepreneurship and autodidactism.
