A great talk from Cabel Sasser

“Man,” said Cabel, shaking his head when he stopped by last summer, “I had a ‘John Nack Moment…'”

I was at once flattered & horrified: I’ve become synonymous with something—and that something is total existential breakdown. Damn… was that my special purpose?

I really enjoyed Cabel’s talk about starting small, freaking out vs. selling out, and doing what you love. I think you’ll enjoy it, too. (The big-company sad trombone effect after the 14-minute mark alone is worth it.)

My wife notes, “I like that he rated his own meltdown scene as ‘1-star.'”[YouTube]

    Cabel’s a really good guy, and I really love Transmit. Hopefully, though, he’ll get through this concern about “endings” and realize that nothing’s over as long as you have dreams you’re following, and there’s always room for doing and being better.
