Frederator on Venture Voice
Venture Voice is consistently one of my favorite pod-listens. Usually insightful, but almost always entertaining. Last week's interview with Fred Seibert of Frederator Studios and Next New Network had Fred talk about his three simple criteria for work:
- Can I have fun
- Can I make money
- Can I stand the people I'm working with
"I figure if I can get 2 of 3 at any given time, I'm doing really well..."
Funny because it's true.

Back nearly a week now and it's really struck me how much harder it's been to come back to Shanghai this time for Angie (and Spence too, though it was his first time). Being nearly a hemisphere away from loved ones can really wear you down sometimes.
While we've been busy with work and getting unpacked and resettled after being away for so long, we really do need to dive back in to seeing some of our dear friends around town here. We're due for some reminders of the "externalities" that are keeping us here.
