S UGGESTIONS




    What to         Scribd emerged from Y-Combinator and is
       ask          currently run by young, first-time entrepreneurs,
                    Trip and Jared. They’re us, but from the near-
                    future. This Open House will present a unique
                    chance to hear about incubators and flagship
                    endeavors, to be inspired by their triumphs, and to
                    learn how to avoid beginners’ mistakes.

    What to         Scribd just launched a reading product called
      read          Float (as I’m sure you know since Eli posted an
                    article on the forum—thanks, man!). If you have a
                    moment, learn about it:
                    This article is a good place to start.
                    Or better yet, just read about anything that
                    interests you on float.com or with the Float
                    Reader iPhone app (available in the App Store).

    What to         Whatever you want, but high heels are
      wear          discouraged (sorry, Brian) because

                    •    Scribd’s office is about a mile from WellnessFX
                    •    it’s hard to unicycle in heels




                                                      Read without boundaries.
