Marc Andreessen is a venture capitalist. He tweets from the altar of disruption, calling forth lost souls to drink the sanguine blood of the disrupted. He is the poet laureate of Silicon Valley.
If you want evidence that time is a flat circle, look no further than Andreessen's "tweetstorms:" a serialized form of intellectual vomit that, as of today, has reached as high as 18 consecutive tweets. Not only will all of this happen again, but even in different combinations it will happen again, and you won't know the difference.
None of the following tweets are part of the same tweetstorm. No tweetstorms were harmed in the making of this poem.
