Can someone please create a startup that delivers pre-made food from Costco to startup events? I try to go to about 4 events a week, and pizza is starting to taste like carboard to me, and it's making me fat. ... See MoreSee Less

Belinda AlznerI have definitely gained weight since starting The Sheet at startup events eight months ago. The struggle with the pizza/beer startup event diet is real.

Rayanne LangdonYikes, some aggressive responses here. FWIW, I thought your question was valid, and if nothing else, something a lot of us can relate to. Hope you find what you're looking for : )

Chris SnoyerIf you are looking to build a network, I don't think calling someone an asshole is the way to go about it. Regardless of his actual age, David Crow is the "50 year old CEO with a network" that you speak of. I don't even know him, but I know who he is. Play nice and maybe you can tap his network and reduce your networking efforts to ~1 event/week. I've learned a ton from people I've met at events, and here's definitely value in them, but 4/week sounds steep.

Jay Goldman and I are calling this "the greatest challenge computer science has ever known." Driverless cars? No problem. Syncing between address books? Hell no.

My address book syncing program has issues with picking which email address to send to … also keeps un-deleting old email addresses. Ugh.

Stuff like PieSync is $150/month for the number addresses/address books that I have!!

Is there anything that actually works ... ?

Ben LucierI've been using Google contacts seamlessly on my Mac and IOS devices. For both work and personal. Is this a PC only challenge?

Ben Lucierah! Yes, ok I get it... definitely an issue with CRMs, etc. I do have that problem. I was going to see if Zapier would be able to help, but haven't spent any time looking into it. Pipedrive's google integration works for my personal contacts syncing, but not company wide.

Jordan SatokTry remembering which chat platform you talk to everyone on. Especially Albert Lai.. the master of every platform. Is it WeChat this week? or Kakao? or Kik? or FB? or LINE? or WhatsApp? or iMessage? #messengeroverload

Derek SzetoNot sure if they support NimbleCRM but EverContact works pretty well for me for my personal contacts anyways. www.evercontact.com

Sandy ScottAgree - still a huge issue - FullContact screwed me too - haven't had time to fix all the contacts it messed up - am hoping for a full reversal of all FullContact activities otherwise I am going to spend days cleaning it up. With Ben - any recommendations much appreciated. Shouldn't there be AI for this or something?
