My friend Myles Weissleder sent a very important email today regarding the Pending Stock Option Tax Legislation in SF…

“Right now, San Francisco is the only major city in the United States
that taxes stock options, and there are two competing bills at City
Hall to address the issue.

One (sponsored by Supervisor Mark Farrell) would permanently stop this
tax – private companies will not pay anything going forward, and
existing public companies would be capped at their current levels.

Another (sponsored by Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi) would only create a
6-year trial period, where public companies will still be subject to
the tax, and private companies will still have to pay up to $750,000 a
year once they go public.

We need to support Supervisor Mark Farrell’s legislation — this is
VERY important to the technology community in San Francisco.

Please send the email below to the Mayor and the Supervisors at these
email addresses:  Board.of.Supervisors@sfgov.org;
mayoredwinlee@sfgov.org

If you’re a registered voter that lives in San Francisco, you can also
visit the Save SF Startups page on Votizen:
https://www.votizen.com/issues/sfstartups/ and submit your letter of
support. If you’re not a voter or live outside of the city, you can
tweet your support with the #sfstartups hashtag.


We also need phone calls to the supervisors – go here
http://www.sfbos.org/index.aspx?page=1616 for phone numbers, call the
supervisors, and ask them to support Supervisor Farrell’s stock option
legislation.

Finally, forward this email to everyone you know (especially other
entrepreneurs who should care about this issue) and ask them to send
the same email.

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP IN PUTTING AN END TO STOCK OPTION TAXATION !”

Thank you Myles for highlighting this!

That’s the main dream that people have. When you’re dreaming you’re flying, it means you get rid of your problems.

This is the screen I had after connecting to someone. I would be lying if I would say I was surprised or having a lot of fun with this joke from Linkedin. I don’t have fun there, I’m just just working. And working.

If you would have had really the will to surprise me guys, let me give you the list… well some names:

Howard Philipps Lovecraft: an amazing writter, I never had some many dreams with fantasy books. French translation is a great success. When you reach inspiration through horrors actually!

Coluche: my country is slowly going into a sort of decadence because of politicians who are more fighting for the power than for the country. Catastrophic. This guys was trying to do something, til Opio…

Well, just a very short list. I’m busy.

Definitely a new generation is coming: aware, “avant-gardiste”, disruptive. The is the Facebook generation, potential powerful influencer, curationist experts, e-reputation Mater guru. The cream of the cream. Dadada.

 

PS: did you see how they poke each other?

iPhone drives you crazy…as for me…like Twitter in fact (don’t follow me right there, you’ll never have any hitech exclusive hot news)!

PPC

But Pierre-Philippe aka PPC (no not this ppC) is on my Twitter list and I’m used to look after his ‘twitts’ as he’s smart and well informed 🙂

One of the consequence is the widget you can see on the top right of this modest blog. To give few additional traffic to Wikio, and maybe let you know about the possibility to win one iPhone. Ok, like the SFR guy I saw yesterday offering a N95 to Arthur H (big guy, smart and cool), “it is just an Edge phone and blablabla”. Ok but that’s an Apple product and THIS makes a difference to me…now! More info about where I was yesterday with Arthur, go there…Sorry this blogger is a reference (N°155 Wikio Top Charts)…but only speaks French…too bad!
