Hi. I’m Duncan Davidson.
I am a Startup Advocate and CTO in Residence at Microsoft for Startups in Berlin, Germany. My job is to provide advice for startup founders and CTOs and help them prioritize, focus, and think through their work.
After editing Amali’s talk on recruiting a diverse team, I pulled out a short salient point and did something fun with it. This is the result.
Recruiting a diverse team
Last year at Slush, the Microsoft for Startups team recorded a bunch of the talks we did in our booth. It’s taken a bit of time, but we’re starting to release them, and I’m really happy that the first to go public is on recruiting diverse teams by Amali de Alwis.
Thank you Mitt Romney for your principled vote today. I wish we could have seen a few more like that, but at least there was one.
I were writing the current timeline we find ourselves in, surely this is the point where I’d have the ex-Presidents meet up and prepare to activate the super-secret contingency plan for when the Constitution breaks.
I walk past this kita (what they call a kindergarden here) all the time and love that there’s always something fresh and festive on the steps.
The Republican Party’s defence and support of unlimited presidential power, when it suits them, is beyond astounding.
Chris Hynes’ story of his time on the Aperture team is an amazing read from somebody who was there during the development of a product that had so much promise, and yet…
Damn, I still miss Aperture.

Some days, this is exactly how I feel. More days lately than I care to admit.
