How did your experience at the Lab influence your next step?

I had people asking me to quit grad school and go to work for their start-ups but I stayed to finish my PhD. Once that was done I found a start-up and worked at that.

Enjoy your time at the Lab. Work less hard, explore much more. Swim in the sea of very smart people and find creative ideas that you want to put effort into - ideas are cheap; effort is precious.
