Startup Codex

Based on the principle that the quality of advice depends not only on the person giving it but also on the person asking for it, this short article is an interesting reflection on the best way to receive advice.

There are two axes that determine the goodness of advice. The first is the obvious one: the quality of the person giving advice. This it the part which most often get discussed.
