So many questions!! Where do you see yourself in 10 years? Will you sell the company and join a VC firm ha ha . How do you plan to scale your firm from 400 to 4000 employees and $2 to $20 billion without turning into IBM? How do you build such good tools with such a high degree of usability compared to alot of other tools out there? So much of corporate IT around the world is like 20 years behind the best practice of leading tech companies like facebook, netflix google etc how can they at least stop getting even further behind in the future? Security and devops seems to be at odds with each other and how can security be introduced without reducing agility of devops? Love to work for your firm in a consulting capacity but I'm a devops contractor working for myself doing work directly at companies. Good luck for the next 10 years!!!!!

IBM in terms of bureaucracy. large companies seem to spend exponential amount of time on communication. Never been successful working for large companies always found them frustrating when working directly for them.

"because I can judge very accurately if they're "good" or not" - I think this is very important and difficult from my experience working for software companies. Too often financial pressure can trump "goodness" of software.
