Any insights or opinions on Social Capital? I just discovered Chamath Palihapitiya and am really intrigued by his point of views. Interesting vision on how he is looking to follow the Berkshire Hathaway model. Looking to buy but wanted to hear other opinions.

Should I ask for a raise? My 6-month review is next week and I’m thinking about asking for a raise. I’ve never asked for one before and normally would never think of asking for one until at least 12 months but in the last couple of months my role and responsibilities have enhanced significantly. I don’t have much experience as this is my first job in advertising (comms background) and I don’t want to come off as naive or ignorant! Any advice would be welcomed. Thank you!
