O my soul do not aspire for immortal life but exhaust the limits of the possible.

Pindar

Mission

Enable infinite compute and infinite zero-carbon energy and make it easy for humanity to use both to innovate faster.

To achieve this mission there are two fundamental things we do:

  • Accelerate the adoption of climate-friendly cloud technologies and continuously make them easier to use and deploy.
  • Invest to bring about infinite compute and infinite zero-carbon energy.

We measure success with four KPIs:

Principles

That which you see as other than righteousness and unrighteousness, other than all this cause and effect, other than what has been and what is to be—Tell me THAT.

Katha Upanishad

Self

Be regular and orderly in your life, so that you may be violent and original in your work.

Gustave Flaubert

So fulfill your desire for power and everything else, and after you have fulfilled the desire, [there] will come the time when you will know that they are all very little things; but until you have fulfilled this desire, until you have passed through that activity, it is impossible for you to come to the state of calmness, serenity, and self-surrender.

Swami Vivekananda
  1. Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. Before we are effective leaders we must meet our basic needs.
  2. Time Management. Every single person has 24 hours in a day, learn to be effective with time.
  3. Knowledge. Understand the world broadly, synthesize new knowledge, and quickly apply it.
  4. Influence and Power. Get others to actuate in a non-zero sum way.

Work

To every man upon this earth
Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better
Than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers,
And the temples of his gods.

Thomas Babington Macaulay, Lays of Ancient Rome
  1. Customer First. Decisions start and end with how it benefits the customer.
  2. Hacker. Take action, get things working without worrying about making things pretty or overthinking, overtime get to the state you want.
  3. Long-Term Thinking. Think in decades, build the world and universe we want to inhabit.
  4. People, Ideas, Technology. In That Order. Serve people, see if they can serve you then pick ideas and technology.

Playbook

A standard mechanism for building a business repeatably.

Businesses

It is in action alone that you have a claim,
never at any time to the fruits of such action.
Never let the fruits of action be your motive;
never let your attachment be to inaction.

Bhagavad Gita, 2:47
