Me and Lupe Fiasco…Also Bezos and WeChat and Vaping

I had a fantastic two days seeing great founders and friends at CES in Las Vegas.

Last night Mike Katz (founder of mParticle) invited me to dinner and sat me with Lupe Fiasco. I had no idea who Lupe Fiasco was (my son Max does and gave me some cool points when I sent a pic), which is probably why he was willing to sit with me in the first place.

Turns out Lupe has a great sense of humor and by the end of the night I let him take a picture with me. Now I am digging into his Wikipedia page and music.

This NY Times piece on Wechat is fantastic (I am long Tencent).

Finally this piece on Juul is a really great read.
