I work on AI at HubSpot. Previously I was founder/CEO at Kemvi (acquired by HubSpot). I'm interested in artificial intelligence, consciousness, rationality, neuroscience, markets, and Mexican food.

Local TV news reporters, once again, embarass themselves by revealing that they enjoy "reporting" poorly-researched, meaningless trash. According to these folks, leet-speak is a "language" that "advanced computer users," like people who can, I don't know, type, and, say, open files use to communicate. I especially enjoyed the panning shot of the "leet translator" software that that guy probably hacked together in three minutes in vb.net.
