@sammartino It was certainly one of those ‘everything is going to be ok’ moments. I took my sister out for a fancy dinner at Red Rooster. :)
@sammartino 10 years ago, I was sitting on the rocks at Sandringham beach pondering my finances, when a $50 note washed up against my feet.

@brentriddell Regular, I’d have to buy looser fitting trousers for the 6 Plus. :)Reserved my iPhone 6. Now dropping my trousers off at the tailor’s to have bigger pockets sewn in.
@benschwarz And on an unrelated note, Steve Jobs’ yacht is docked in the harbour—pretty epic.@benschwarz Ah awesome. You’re in Barcelona right? Was there a few weeks ago and just gorged myself on the most amazing food!@benschwarz You were in Berlin?@beatrixcoles Also, I’ve always wanted to check out @timberyarduk, heard great things: http://t.co/1xQgFPWX2W
@beatrixcoles Excited is an understated understatement.
@kilmc Fucking congrats mate—you deserve it.
@smonicats Would have love to celebrate with you, but I’m camping in Spreewald this weekend!@smonicats So I figure it would be like a wake up call, if I am responsible for waking you up, I’m less likely to snooze and sleep in!@smonicats I often schedule meetings in the morning since having an obligation will get me out of bed.@smonicats That’s a really good idea actually. So we alternate calling each other at 7:00 AM on weekdays?@smonicats Whoa, such, such, a good idea!

So, what do you, go for in a girl? I’d like a girl who, reads. https://t.co/qFFaZuGenq@dotmariusz All good, no rush. :)@dotmariusz I’ll be also around tomorrow if you want to freestyle it.@dotmariusz Oh great, Friday week perhaps.@neohysteria I can guarantee that hurling laptops across the room won’t cure your Photoshop woes. :)@dotmariusz Next week’s probably better for me also. I’m based out of Betahaus, so we’re probably close.@dotmariusz Open to it if I can add value. Shall we grab a coffee sometime? Where are you based?@dotmariusz Hey Mariusz! By the way, love Lifetramp, I’ve wanted something similar for a long time. :) /cc @zachinglis
@jongold Hahahaha, “that’s a fucking bullshit story”, gold.@jasonfried Of course, thanks. Is it possible to obtain a higher resolution of this illustration? http://t.co/IylSclfbVV@jasonfried, @dhh Hey guys, who is the best person to contact for permission to use an illustration from Remote for a review of the book?
@bobearth I went through the same thing with my merchant facility, would have definitely gone with Stripe if it was available at the time.@bobearth On top of that, merchant accounts have their own set of monthly fees, commissions, etc.@bobearth Stripe only requires a normal bank account. eWay requires a merchant account, which also requires a thorough application process.@bobearth A typical payment gateway such as eWay requires you have your own merchant account with the bank, whereas Stripe does not.
@kjingo if all goes well visa wise, hopefully at least a few more years. :)
@kjingo You should make the trip over to Europe so we can go on some epic cycles!@kjingo Shorts and a polo shirt. My very next purchase will be a pair of bicycle shorts. :)@kjingo Protip: 139 kms × Single Speed = Insane Soreness (http://t.co/uypCjqwaFR)@makenosound Perhaps I should. @jonathonbellew, are you thinking about a visit to Berlin?Anyone in Melbourne want to do a Berlin apartment swap from late January to early April 2015?
@paulozoom @joaoLago One of the startup accelerators in London has a sign in their office that reads, “great teams work weekends”. That.@paulozoom @joaoLago And I’ve seen this dismissiveness lead to serious issues later on with many friends.@paulozoom @joaoLago More that I grew up in a culture where they were always the basis of comparison.@paulozoom @joaoLago Sorry, I didn’t mean to dismiss our problems in that way.@paulozoom Neither of them have ever complained about burnout. :)@paulozoom Arriving in Melbourne, they spent three months learning English so they could integrate and eventually started a business.@paulozoom My father and mother (pregnant with me at the time) fled the Vietnam war with 48 refugees on an 11 metre boat.If you want to build a ship, teach your people to long for the endless immensity of the sea. Those stupid assholes will totally fall for it.

I’ll pencil in Thursday the 24th!@markdunbavan Yes, definitely. How long are you in town for?

@yandle Let me know if there’s anything I might be able to help with. :)
@brentriddell What does this remind you of? http://t.co/AQuNMcyylR@beatrixcoles @tullyhansen Whoa, of course. Equally fascinating is how we each meet in strangely different ways.@tullyhansen I worded my tweet badly, for say non-fiction or journalism, I figured the money would be used for travel, research, etc.
@guyarmitage @moe_tanahy I agree. Hmmm, might see if I can round up some founders with interesting stories@Jeevesmeister @tullyhansen Should probably clarify the type of wrestling you’re talking about.@Jeevesmeister @tullyhansen Dad was a huge fan of WWF growing up, I instead made fun of friends who were convinced it was real.@guyarmitage @moe_tanahy A compilation of startup success/horror stories would make for a good read actually.@tullyhansen What if it was say $500? :)@Jeevesmeister @tullyhansen Haha, I would love to read that! Am I the only one?
To all my writer and aspiring writer friends, If I gave you $1,000 to write about anything that interests you, what would you write about?
