* Things take longer than you expect --> Preserve runway
* The "terms" on a term sheet are vital --> Read beyond "the valuation"
* Tech gets you in the game, but teams win --> Recruiting is Job #1
* You must measure something to control it --> Establish a small number of key metrics and track aggressively

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube.
