Netflix CEO Reed Hastings's letter

All:

I’ve made a decision to let go of Jonathan Friedland. Jonathan contributed greatly in many areas, but his descriptive use of the N-word on at least two occasions at work showed unacceptably low racial awareness and sensitivity, and is not in line with our values as a company.

Snap CEO Evan Spiegel's letter

We are a camera company.

We contribute to human progress by empowering people to express themselves, live in the moment, learn about the world, and have fun together.

Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky's letter

I am absurdly lucky even to be writing this email. Ten years ago we started Airbnb. Joe and I couldn’t pay rent, so we created the first AirBed & Breakfast and invited three people we’d never met to stay in our home. People said our idea would never work – “Strangers will never trust one another!” A decade later, people have checked into an Airbnb nearly 300 million times.

Better Call Saul: Chuck's Letter to Jimmy

This post is about Better Call Saul Seaon Four Episode Three.
A letter Chunk wrote to Jimmy.

Dear Jimmy,

I have left many things unsaid in our relationship through the years. Rather than allow these unspoken thoughts to die with me, I’ve chosen to record them here for you. I hope you will take my words in the spirit in which they are intended.

Netflix 是如何打造媒体帝国的之内容篇

本系列文章是我关于 Netflix 公司的一些思考,这是第一篇,从「内容」角度出发来思考 Netflix 公司。

Netflix 近几年来一直饱受电视剧太长的批判,比如说正常五六集的电视剧被硬生生拉长到十几集以上,目的是增加收视的时间时长。除此之外,还有很多高成本的电视剧最后的评价并不是太好,比如说《外来者》豆瓣 5.6 分,威尔 · 史密斯主演的《光灵》豆瓣 6.2 分,《科洛弗悖论》豆瓣 5.9 分,《缄默》豆瓣 4.8 分,《泰坦》豆瓣 4.8 分。以上这几部都是高成本制造,高成本宣传,最后风评都不是很好,不管是豆瓣还是烂番茄,中外网友一致地给出了差评,属于性价比非常低的影视作品。

翻译:Stripe 创始人 Patrick Collison 给 10 - 20 岁人的十四条建议

前言

前几天看到一篇 Stripe 创始人 Patrick Collison 写给 10 岁到 20 岁人的建议,虽然已不是那个年龄段的人了,但现在看来还是非常受用,搜索了下中文网络并没有该篇译文,遂翻译出来分享给大家,如果可以有这个年龄段的青少年可以看到,也算是起了些许帮助。

转载:在美国短期工作两三年是否应考虑交 401k?

本文全文转载自知乎回答, 作者 Steven Wang

2017 年 11 月 3 日更新

Trump 的税改可能取消 Personal exemption。如果被取消,那么短期内回国关于交 401k 的 rule of thumb 是:

  • 当前边际税率(含联邦、州、地方)高过 37% 的,投满 401k
  • 否则,拿满公司 401k match 即可。

胡适:成功不必在我,而功力必不唐捐

赠与今年的大学毕业生

作者:胡适

本文为 1948 年 9 月 27 日胡适在公余学校的演讲

原载于 1948 年 10 月《自由与进步》第 1 卷第 10 期

这一两个星期里,各地的大学都有毕业的班次,都有很多的毕业生离开学校去开始他们的成人事业。学生的生活是一种享有特殊优待的生活,不妨幼稚一点,不妨吵吵闹闹,社会都能纵容他们,不肯严格的要他们负行为的责任。现在他们要撑起自己的肩膀来挑他们自己的担子了。在这个困难最紧急的年头,他们的担子真不轻! 我们祝他们的成功,同时也不忍不依据我们自己的经验,赠与他们几句送行的赠言,——虽未必是救命毫毛,也许作个防身的锦囊罢!
