I read this and think of other articles I wrote about in another blogpost, and another one as well.

Excerpt:

Vinod Khosla is among the world’s most influential venture capitalists. He co-founded Sun Microsystems and served as its CEO before joining Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. Mr. Khosla, 61, now runs Khosla Ventures . . .

I have been involved in a number of discussions around universal basic income . . .

I think something akin to that will be necessary when work becomes something you do because you want to do, and not because you have to do, to put food on your table . . .

If you were advising someone who was just starting out, what would you tell them to study?

AI. And to learn to be agile.
