Google Earth Engine is a joint project between Google and NASA that allows anyone access to a 30 year time-lapse of the surface of the earth. I made a video about how amazing, terrifying, and important it is.
Two days before my YC interview I was in Atlantic City hacking the slot machines at the Taj Mahal. It was my friend’s bachelorette party. Since I couldn’t get out of it and the pack of girls I was with wouldn’t let me play blackjack, I figured I could at least nickel and dime the casino.
