Hello, Friends. How are you? How was your week? I’m happy to report that Alt Summit 2019 is complete. And to me, it felt like a big success. I know I mentioned we took some huge risks this year, and I was super nervous heading in to the event. But I can honestly say that I think this was our BEST YEAR YET. No exaggeration. In my closing remarks this year, I said that generosity is the currency of Alt Summit, and I felt that in full force this year. There was a spirit of generosity, inclusiveness, sharing, and collaboration-over-competition that was as strong as I’ve ever felt.

I need to write an official report, but for now, I’m just going to enjoy the feeling of accomplishment, and spend my Sunday afternoon writing my Friday link list. : )

Here are a few things I’ve been meaning to share:

– If you’re wishing you had attended Alt Summit, and want to go next year, here’s a heads up: a limited number of Pre-sale tickets are available until Monday at 2:00 PM PST. They are priced at $450, which is the lowest price they’ll ever be available for.

– Poor San Francisco. For years, visitors have been shocked by the city’s intensifying filth. It seems like with a ton of the world’s most innovative companies located here, that we would be able to figure this out, right?

– His wife is Pakistani, and loves hip-hop dancing, so he made this.

– “I welcome an outside review of how we handled the Jussie Smollett case.”

– This morning routine will save you 20+ hours per week.

More children were shot dead in 2017 than on-duty police officers and active duty military combined.

– I can tell it’s really Spring, because I just bought a replacement pair of red checkerboard Vans.

– Millennials are facing a radically different financial future than their parents did.

French food habits.

– I appreciate this video about how conservatives and liberals can work together to fight political corruption.

I hope you are having the best weekend. I’ll meet you back here on Monday. I’ve missed you like crazy.

kisses,
Gabrielle
