I like having lunch with Neil from time to time to brainstorm about strategy for my ventures. He is one of the sharpest analysts of business ... strategy around, and I always come out of these meals with one or two critical insights - nuggets - that help me move the business forward. There are very few people in the Silicon Valley startup scene who have this skill.
