@OBJLPhil @rekindleapp good on you for the French there mate :-)@speechu @mazaic I know huh ? Imagine if your type-2 list (the ones I missed) ruled your world :-)A bunch of 4sq check-ins unlikely to get you a follow. Meta = very tired / expired, expert for eg @RunKeeper, wait ... :0) ???@mazaic @Accel I think we're quite pregnant aren't we ?? :-)I missed investing in @mazaic so I joined @Accel insteadYou would have thought dating was thoroughly played out but @OBJLPhil and co invented a fun new twist on it with @rekindleapp

@jason_pontin that's pretty much exactly true for me too :)Heavy damage in Napa; no reported injuries from biggest earthquake to hit San Francisco area in 25 years. Twitter: https://t.co/6Ytfa3FnTJ
Retweeted by Fred Destin@Nero men abusing men then :)@TaskRabbit I did and it's not a criticism of the platform. Just commenting that skilled people like cooks sell their services very cheap@2pasc @pmarca clearly anything is better than the average retail wage in America ($10)great stuff. “@ValaAfshar: What leadership skills do you need the most?http://t.co/PUVSiZtids http://t.co/ywvwbn6cWB
Retweeted by Fred DestinPeople had lots to say about #suicide before it was known #RobinWilliams had #Parkinsons and almost ZERO to say re #EndofLife issues. True?
Retweeted by Fred Destin@pmarca how about this symptom: most platforms afaik burn their supply side fast and are not building with enough sustainability.@jasoncrawford leads into whole minimum wage debate too. Treadmill / serfdom.@jasoncrawford third I'd say is that marketplaces still too expensive. Transaction costs high. Early days.@jasoncrawford second is that ancillary services like health insurance still expensive especially for freelancers so cost base does not move@jasoncrawford three issues. One is massive oversupply (currently) so you get highly qualified people for $15 hour. Basic imbalance.

@jasoncrawford Jason all for conversation but can you expand / explain your point ?@nikolaj yes exactly. Thank you for phrasing it better.@pmarca 3/ (haha) we also need access to cheap insurance / healthcare for (low earning) self employed. Let's go reinvent insurance.@pmarca I'd rather question why most people in America need two jobs to survive, now that I think about it@pmarca I'm a firm believer but as in all evolutions there is a time when market pricing is very imperfect'Sharing economy" = subsistence economy? Constantly shocked at low hourly rates on @taskrabbit : http://t.co/KPhexUuA8HJust completed a 4.39 mi run - First run in London http://t.co/RPlXdKOvcB #RunKeeper
