I’m going to keep the introduction remarkably brief today because, honestly, I don’t have a lot to say other than that you should read this:
I don’t know the author, Matt Bencke, nor do I know a whole lot about his startup, Mighty AI
(which provides training data for autonomous cars). But his story about battling a very bad cancer diagnosis—something he’s just getting started on, by the way—shook me pretty hard.
It takes a certain kind of bravery to write an essay like this and then share it publicly. It touches on things that every parent thinks about—but hopes more than anything they’ll never have to actually face.
All I really can say is that I wish only the best for Matt and his family.
