    Multiply people by dollars

    To multiply dollars by people. A situation where the startup is based on arithmetic and primitive desire to get rich. It relies heavily on an assumption that everyone should become a user of the service.

    Two people were traveling in the bus and talked about potential startups. Suddenly, one of them saw a janitor, whose orange jacket flashed in the window.
    - Oh... Listen, what if we create the social network for janitors? There are many of them in Moscow.
    - I wonder how many?
    - 50 thousand, I guess.
    - And what about other workers?
    - Another 50 thousand, no less.
    - So then we get 100 thousand of them... They're from Central Asia and most are lonely here, they want to get married and get acquainted with each other. By the way, this target group they consume special type of rice, cottonseed oil...
    - So ... Subscription model? Two dollars a month? $24 a year is cheap, right?
    - Wait-wait-wait a second! Multiply by 24 hundred thousand and we get...
    - Two million four hundred thousand a year!..
    - Plus ads!

      Girlfriend

      For a handful of heterosexual men, this term is referred to as one's laptop because they rarely want others touching it and it's the only warm thing that touches them below the waste for long periods of time.

      Meek: Have you seen my girlfriend?

      Drake: Nikkis in Paris for a show.

      Meek: Nah I mean my MacBook Air. I wanna tweet a new diss at you. I probably won't see Nikki for awhile.

      Drake: It's next to Wayne's bed.

      Meek: I'm gonna curl up with my girlfriend and watch some Game of Thrones.

        "Unicorn" is a common term for an engineer (usually front-end) who also has good taste in design and is able to contribute to UX early on. But "unicorn" is also used for startups that turn out to be breakout successes, like Uber and Airbnb. Silicon Valley really likes unicorns.

      Waterloo

      Matthew: "We hired 10 interns and 20 full-times from Waterloo. They get shit done because if we don't hire them, they'll have to work for Blackberry."

        @SingleCommaClub It's similar to what you see from immigrants to a new country like US or Canada

        @SingleCommaClub That's not true at all. Pretty much everyone I know from my graduating class got offers from US companies. A significant proportion of students choose to stay because the region is booming right now, and also the quality of life in Canada is pretty high.

        Have worked with a lot of engineers from Waterloo through internships and full time. Can honestly say they are very talented, but there is a bias because all the ones that make it to US companies are generally top notch.
