8. If you could have done anything differently in your career, what would it have been?
I wish I had learned to speak the language of business a bit earlier in my career. Technology and business both use different vocabularies, but often are saying the same things. It's phenomenal when you have alignment on a mission and strategy with an entire team charging in the same direction.
9. What was the most important thing you learned in school?
At Stanford, it was emphasized that you're there "to learn how to learn." You're going to be learning your entire life, so you need to figure out how to optimize that skill. Everyone should make lifelong learning a habit.
10. What is one unique or quirky habit that you have?
I'm a gadget freak. I love electronic gadgets. I'm always trying them out. Nine times out of 10, they wind up on the shelf after a couple of weeks. Recently, I tried to improve my posture with a device that straps on to your back and will buzz if you're sitting improperly. Unfortunately, the first day I tried it I wound up sitting onstage at a company all-hands meeting, and it was buzzing constantly as I was talking. Let's just say that gadget experiment lasted for just a few hours.
