Freedom Toast Friday

by Larry Chiang on June 1, 2012

By Larry Chiang

Freedom is not free.

In the same way I crashed a cemetary on Memorial Day to make BBQ for veterans… I crashed my own office to make Freedom Toast for entrepreneurs.

Yes I crash my own parties by having people ask me at my own party, “ARE YOU CRASHING”.

For example, Jason Calacanis at my #ReverseVC party at sxsw.

For example, Mike Arrington when I was at the Unofficial YC Party. Well, actually that is a bad example because I was crashing Y-Combinator… But you get what I mean.

DPL is Dog Patch Labs. It’s housed at Polaris Venture Firm. You can apply to be on a waitlist for free office space. Text me and I’ll help you hack in if you’re a CS major ceo.

But know I don’t take equity.

The next “Freedom Toast Friday” will be July 6. If you’d like to sponsor, I’m so sorry. Freedom Toast Friday has sponsors through 2047 ( it coincides with PivotSLAC).

RSVP on Yeah, I’m a board member there 🙂 Yes, I crashed that Board of Directors.

Q: But Larry Chiang — how can you make money giving away legendary gourmet french toast. ERR FREEDOM TOAST? Answer: one, welcome to silicon valley. Two, cool people 70/20-10 their time. I 30%-50%~80% my time.

Q: Huh?! Answer: google me. I’m a pretty big deal.

Q: Are you douchie?! Answer: taste the Freedom Toast and if you’re not grinning ear-to-ear… My names not Larry “Iron Chef” Chiang.
