Life lessons from The Verge

Hello everyone,

Most of the editors on The Verge have been with Engadget before and have quite a few years of experience. You used to do Growing Up Geek on Engadget and it was one of my favorite features. I would love if you could do something similar here - life lessons, what would you do differently, what was your greatest mistake/achievement etc. Since many of us admire Tom, Vlad, Nilay, Sean, the Millers, Thomas, Laura, Chris, all the others and, of course, Josh, we could definitely use some of your infinite knowledge on the first job, New York survival and breaking in as Pixel Density Enthusiast. Thanks and I hope we see some incisive posts in the near future!
