    My first manager at Facebook was wearing pink tinted glasses in my interview. I thought: wow, i guess in silicon valley the directors really are like rock stars. It was only a year later that I learned he suffered from migraines and his doctor had prescribed the pink tinted lenses. I noticed that was not on your list. I think it needs to be there.
