He already is a great entrepreneur. We met when we were both Andreessen Horowitz portfolio CEOs... Which is a good filter. He's off the char ... ts smart, but in a multi-disciplinary way: deep technology from silicon to software, solid product instincts, and a thoughtful and articulate leader. He's also got a healthy dose of intellectual honesty... And has always seemed more focused on finding the right answers than by just being right. If I were starting something, I'd be fighting to cofound with Austin.
