Time for our second 'Ask Me Anything!'
HI everyone, I'm Patrick McKenzie, a four-time software entrepreneur currently living in Japan. I've worked for Stripe for the last several years. In 2021, I kicked off and became CEO of VaccinateCA, a non-profit initiative to help Californians find the covid-19 vaccine. We ended up running the shadow national vaccine location information infrastructure.
I recently wrote an oral history of this effort. Some lessons learned seem interesting to people who are attempting to do ambitious things with ambiguous paths to achieving them, particularly at the intersection of socially important institutions.
Ask me anything! I will be on here from Monday, December 12 for a few days, and will endeavor to get to your questions each day during that time.
