So, did you watch the Super Bowl? (Of course you did!) And did you think it was amazing? (No, you did not...) And did you watch the Super Ads? (Of course you did!) And what did you think, any of them stand out for you? (No, they did not...)

Wow, another Super Sunday has come and gone. Onward into the year!
Mark Suster: Why Uber should go public. Great post and great thinking. Basically, they should go public because the scrutiny of public markets will force them to improve. Interesting argument.

Meanwhile: Aetna joins growing chorus warning about ObamaCare failing. Yeah, you could see this coming from a long way off. They're running out of other people's money already. (Which means, they'll be coming for more of ours...)
Three ways the blockchain will change the real estate market. This hasn't happened as quickly as I thought, but I still think it will happen. Especially perhaps in connection with unmapped real estate, like asteroids and planets :)
