On Thursday I’ve been listening to AWS webinar. Nothing new, but helped confirm current knowledge and methodology, as well as learn the diff. Learned about interesting terminology, e.g. “Two-pizza” teams. Here are come memorable screenshots.

Peter Thiel’s CS183: Startup - Public Evernote

There is a good transcription of Peter Thiel’s CS183 Startup course at Stanford University by Blake Masters (that can be found on his blog). However I’ve decided to add to this good read a glimpse of convenience, by placing it in a public Evernote notebook.

Recalled Robert Frost recently…

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
