The one I liked most:

   27. Hardware/software hybrids. ... There's a lot of low-hanging
       fruit in hardware; you can often do dramatically new things
       by making comparatively small tweaks to existing stuff. ...
       If you work on an idea of this type you'll tend to have the
       field to yourself, because most hackers are afraid of hardware,
       and most hardware companies can't write good software.

That's actually a scarily on-target summary of where I've always
been most productive in my career. Hmmm... Startup time again...?
With something Lispy on the software side...?
