Mark to Market

Some thoughts after reading “Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup.”

I never wrote about Theranos or Elizabeth Holmes here or on my other blog even when they were in their heyday because it seemed a little fishy to me. No, I had no idea that the company was a fraud. As with Jonah Lehrer, everything about it set off my “something is not quite right” detector without me having any direct evidence or thought on it fully formed. Its fraudulence, in other words, wasn’t known to me; just felt hinky, is all.

Glad that my bullshit detector is still functioning fairly well. I need that thing in working order for stuff I can actually trade on.
