Lol so what if they're using a PED? Many people have ADHD diagnosis and use amphetamines to focus. Filtering them out at the interview stage is a huge mistake. Abnormally productive people should be seen as a benefit not a cheater.

I didn't say it was a bad thing.

The point was that being "productive" - that is to say fully focused - for a complete workday just doesn't happen all the time without medication of some sort.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
