Busy week. 
Tuesday was Slack’s ’Enterprise Gridlaunch – the version of their software meant for large organizations – IBM-large. What continually impresses me (obvious biases aside) about Slack’s launches is the time and care they put in to get the little things right. As with the Threads (threaded messages) launch a couple weeks back, the enterprise version of Slack was a continual iteration that has been close to ‘good enough’ for a long time, but not quite right. Slack always seems to find a good balance of taking the time to find 'quite right’ and never shipping anything (since, after all, the product is “a giant piece of shit,” according to one person familiar with the matter 😜). 
Yesterday was the first GV (portfolio company) CEO day/dinner we hosted in San Francisco. Huge success. And hats
Today, Snap! Uber! Anyway, nice to have a break from Trump Twitter for a few days – which somehow seems to be getting worse, not better.
