Tinder Ghostwriter

Someone who is hired to chat on behalf of others with the intention of getting their employer a date.

I've paid my rent this month by tinder ghostwriting for more than half of the engineering department. The hardest part is convincing them to take pictures of themselves without unlaundered hoodies and mom jeans.

3 Comma Studios

A legendary secret society publicly operating as an app studio in San Francisco, California. While the app studio founders are made public on their website 3CommaStudios.com, its members are kept highly secret, rumored to be having some of the biggest names in tech and venture capital as shadow leaders of a seemingly inconspicuous organization.

It's rumored that every few months the society inducts members by sending them a mysterious black key card with 3 commas embroidered on it. They meet in a secret location and talk about the tech world behind closed doors that open upward like a Lamborghini, not side to side like a Honda Civic. If asked, its members are told to deny their memberships and even scoff at the very thought of it's existence.

The studio's slogan: Do not bite the invisible hand that feeds.

I've heard rumors that Devon was inducted as a member of 3 Comma Studios a few months ago after starting his company. He denies the existence of the organization adamantly. But I saw a black key card with 3 commas in his wallet a few months ago. On top of that he goes out at random times of the night getting dropped home by cars with doors that open upward NOT side to side. Sometimes in the dead of night when I bring it up, he just sticks both his middle fingers up at me and whispers "2 commas be gone" in a trance like state.

Christmas Party +1 Crashing

Crashing the extremely low security, high budget christmas parties tech companies throw as a lonely tech employees +1 and meeting people in sometimes their most inebriated state of the year.

I made friends with the C level staff of three companies this year's round of Christmas Party +1 Crashing. I didn't do with the intention of networking to be honest, I just enjoy Christmas parties with my friends..

Second-Time Founder Syndrome

The condition associated with former founders who've had success with one company and are stunted by the task of deciding what to work on next with heightened expectations and desires for it to be even bigger. This condition becomes especially petrifying when the founder has seen 1000's of ideas by that point in time, with no coherent pattern of success.

After Erlich Bachman sold his first company Aviato, he developed Second-Time Founder Syndrome and decided to invest in companies like Nip Alert instead until he gained better ground on determining what he wanted to do next.

Swoop n' Poop
