Random Show Episode 23

A new episode of the Random Show with Kevin Rose (founder of Digg) and Tim Ferriss (author of The 4-Hour Workweek) is out! This is episode 23.


Lessons learned
  • Kevin Rose has some kind of middle-age-life-crisis and have begun to each month do something "epic," such as climbing a bridge, firing guns, meditation retreats, or simply reading a book.
  • Tim Ferriss has invested in Shyp - "The easiest way to ship your stuff."  
"A Shyp Hero (driver) arrives at your home or office, safely takes your unpackaged item(s), professionally packages it off-site, and sends it on its way. You only pay the cost of the shipping (no more than Post Office prices) plus a $5 pickup fee. If you send 2 or more items, we waive the pickup fee entirely."
  • Both Tim Ferriss and Kevin Rose are members of AngelList which is a platform for startups to meet investors, candidates and incubators. Individuals can the invest in what the investors has invested in with a minimum of $1000 (depending on the investor). So if you are tired of the traditional stock market, you can invest in the companies Tim Ferriss or Kevin Rose believes in.
