Solid look at the gentlemen behind @3Sixteen. Respect to everyone featured in this video. Support these fine people and companies. @Sightglass, @SelfEdge.
Not every decision is an economic decision. Despite the fact that you recite statistics that are narrow in time, we did provide a 38% shareholder return over the last year. I don’t know how many things you invest in, but I would suspect not many things, companies, products, investments have returned 38% over the last 12 months. Having said that, it is not an economic decision to me.
The lens in which we are making that decision is through the lens of our people. We employ over 200,000 people in this company, and we want to embrace diversity. Of all kinds.
If you feel, respectfully, that you can get a higher return than the 38% you got last year, it’s a free country. You can sell your shares in Starbucks and buy shares in another company. Thank you very much.

One of the coolest street/hip-hop projects I’ve seen in a while from Jay Shells and @TheRapQuotes.
Couldn’t be more excited for MotoGP to fire up for 2013. In the meantime, I’ll just watch this on repeat. Pretty incredible footage. These kids make it look easy. Except when they don’t.
Probably my favorite video from @juniorstrategy’s latest Influencer conversation with @elcuriouso. Always good stuff from these smart folks.
Was reminded of this video recently while checking out a climbing studio. I told some coworkers that I’d seen a video of a kid who climbed Half Dome in
3 hours 1 hour and 22 minutes. None of them believed me.
