Tesla CEO Elon Musk's letter

June 17, 2018
11:57 p.m.

I was dismayed to learn this weekend about a Tesla employee who had conducted quite extensive and damaging sabotage to our operations. This included making direct code changes to the Tesla Manufacturing Operating System under false usernames and exporting large amounts of highly sensitive Tesla data to unknown third parties.

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。
