"I love the Washington Square Park story! I agree that honesty goes hand in hand with authenticity. And, saying "I don't know" is one of the most powerful, and authentic, phrases on the planet." - Brad Feld

"It would be a much better world. When I was co-chairman of a public company in the late 1990's I learned first hand what the lawyers did to everything. Given how things worked, almost any personality is neutralized. Just listen to any public company earnings call. The first part is the CEO and CFO reading a script. The second part is the CEO and CFO trying to answer the questions without saying anything that wasn't in the script." - Brad Feld

If you aren't watching Halt and Catch Fire you should be. Best nerd TV in a long time. Makes HBO Silicon Valley look trite.

"Ironically, that also is what makes a bad investor. Specifically, Mr.Socrates, the investor who ONLY asks questions, especially when they are non-substantive, random, or off the point. I've met many of these investors who ask endless questions, but never guide the entrepreneur anywhere with them. And, most importantly, never express a clear opinion on the answers, or their own answers to the questions in the context of what is going on. So questions are good, but they aren't the only thing necessary to be a great investor." - Brad Feld

"I can't decide what is more annoying - the behavior of the Denver policeman in this article or the trolls in the comments. Dave - sorry you had a stressful moment, especially within a mile of DIA. While I can't officially apologize for bad police behavior, having experienced my own version of this, as has my wife, you handled it gracefully. Just be honest, direct, and don't respond to the arbitrary insinuation and threats. My favorite line recently that got a policeman to back off from this is "I have a first amendment right to use whatever tone I want with you" in response to a policeman, clearly using threats and intimidation in a situation where he was clearly incorrect, stating "M'am - don't use a hostile tone with me." Glad you stayed cool and the Uber driver was professional." - Brad Feld

"True, but I don't limit it that way. After I realize I'm in a one way relationship that isn't satisfying, I tell the other person about Give Before You Get. I also tell them that's my last gift to them until I see them give something to someone else - it doesn't have to be me - but it has to be visible. This works a lot and, when it doesn't, it's usually pretty obvious right away." - Brad Feld

"Yay! I always take the time to differentiate Pay it Forward from Give Before You Get. Pay it Forward is good, but not nearly as powerful as Give Before You Get, especially over a long period of time." - Brad Feld
