This month is the twenty year anniversary of the big month of November 1999.

Long enough has passed that I may mis-remember, but in November 1999, I

  • Defended my PhD thesis
  • Bought the Greenwich Village apartment I still live in
  • Secured, with my co-founder, my first company’s first investment of $200,000

In other words, I finished the top degree in one of the most challenging fields, severed my ties with it, moved physically away from academia, and started with a bang my business career.

Probably more happened, but I don’t remember.

It was a big month. I wonder if I’ve had as big a month since.
