I'm very proud of you, baby. I'm excited for both of us. It's a new chapter for me too!

Anil Dash

I walked away from the company I had co-founded after almost 7 years, and it was one of the hardest things I'd ever done. But now, it's been almost that long since I left, and I can see it was one of the best decisions I ever made and led to me being happier, more satisfied, and more successful. I'm sure you'll find the same!


You're zest for living and willingness to take chances and broad leaps of faith has always been inspirational to me. Here's to this new chapter in both yours and Mie's life. May you find all that you seek, and savor every moment of the journey.



Best of luck to you and to Mie! GANBATTE!! ^_^


Dav, congratulations on your decision and good luck! I left that "once peerless Japanese consumer electronics company" back in September, took off 2 months for sanity and a trip to motorcycle New Zealand (you gotta do this too- it's motorcycling nirvana!) and visit friends in Australia.

I'm back in Tokyo in a new job and am excited for the possibilities. As we say in Tokyo, otsukaresamadeshita and have a great time living life on your own terms!


Good luck Dav,
I can't wait to see what's brewing. Enjoy!


Finally this day you've been dreaming of arrived.

Congratulations my friend and enjoy the freedom! If I could buy stock in people you'd become a key part of my portfolio. (...and if I had any money, that is.)


Congratulations! I am very excited for you! Can't wait to see what you come up with....
