Something that matters deeply
I signed up for How to Start a Startup from Y Combinator a few weeks back. The course starts today and I was sent a couple of links to recommended readings before watching the first video.

I could have filed it away to do something typographically with it, and risk never publishing it at all, but instead I’ll leave it with you simply below:
