The cure for internet overload.

We all spend too much time on the internet. I do too. Actually, it's part of my job.

I am a partner at Lightspeed in Silicon Valley, where I focus on consumer technology firms across all stages. I started this newsletter a few years ago as a way to directly share my own learnings and perspectives on the areas I study every day.

Once a week or so, I distill the internet firehose and deliver to your inbox my summary thoughts on commerce, media, technology, science, and pop culture. I often write with a data-driven lens and am interested in subject matter that other VCs tend to ignore.

It's free. No spam. Unsubscribe whenever you want. I never share your emails. If you're extra curious, check out an archive of my older content here.
