So says Sequoia Capita partner Eric Pulin during a summit of 100 Silicon Valley CEO’s on how tech companies can survive this economic crisis. Among the suggestions?

Robb Sutton at MTB by 198 studied economics, and he brings things a little closer to home in his suggestions on weathering this storm.

I hate to start the weekend on a down note, so visit my Santa Cruz photos post, or take Rob’s advice and get out and ride!
