Sounds to me like a great heuristic for whether a person would be a good investor.

I realize it's a statement of praise, but I think Marc is legendary in the valley and an immensely successful investor/veteran of the business. Implying that he'd be in the running to become an employee at GitHub just felt off. Again, hard to put it into words.


I found it to be very flattering :-).


Well then, I'm going to go be quiet elsewhere now.

(Hi Marc!)


...the entire point of that statement was that he's not in the running.
