More quotes from the talk:

Because more people today — not only designers — now need to be fluent in communicating around design. How one builds something is no longer enough; you have to design it well, too. And it cannot be an afterthought. — Peter Levine of A16Z from the essay “The Decade of Design

A lot of what we do now are bets for what we will become in the future. — Myself to the kids on decision making and the future
