I hope that more people realize just how much of a benefit. This is like it. It feels like it’s almost as silly debate to keep having with tech companies at large, but this recognition that you know when you have a team that is built of people who? You know me look the same will think the same will act the same more you’re actually blind siding yourself to all of the wonderful opportunities that there are and there is so many undiscovered and untapped markets and problems to solve for people who don’t fit a very specific worldview.
