Christopher Ashton Kutcher (/ˈkʊər/; born February 7, 1978) is an American actor and investor. …. In 2004, Kutcher starred in the lead role of the psychological film The Butterfly Effect and gained public recognition.

[..]

Beyond the entertainment world, Kutcher is also a venture capitalist. Kutcher has also successfully invested in several high technology startups. Some of his investments include Skype, Foursquare, Airbnb, Path and Fab.com. He is a co-founder of the venture capital firm A-Grade Investments with Guy Oseary and Ron Burkle and fund manager Chris Hollod. At SXSW on March 14, 2015, Kutcher announced Sound Ventures, the successor to A-Grade Investments managing a fund backed by institutional funding.

On October 29, 2013, Lenovo announced that it has hired Kutcher as product engineer. Kutcher was part of the management team for Ooma, a tech start-up launched in September 2007. Ooma is in the Voice over Internet Protocol business and Kutcher’s role was as Creative Director. He spearheaded a marketing campaign and produced viral videos to promote this service. Kutcher also created an interactive arm of Katalyst called Katalyst Media, with his partner from Katalyst Films, Jason Goldberg. Their first site was the animated cartoon Blah Girls. Ooma revamped its sales and marketing strategy with a new management team in the summer of 2008, replacing Kutcher as their creative director. Rich Buchanan, from Sling Media, became Ooma’s Chief Marketing Officer

In 2009, Kutcher established an international human rights organization with his then-wife Demi Moore. DNA Foundation, later known as Thorn, works to address the sexual exploitation of children and the proliferation of child pornography on a global scale.

[..]

On April 16, 2009, Kutcher became the first Twitter user to reach more than 1 million followers, beating CNN in the site’s “Million followers contest”. However, there have been several reports that Twitter manipulated the contest’s results by preventing users from “unfollowing” Kutcher or CNN.

In November 2011, Kutcher received much criticism for his tweet in response to the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal, calling the firing of Penn State football coach Joe Paterno “in poor taste”. Kutcher subsequently turned over management of his Twitter account to his team at the Katalyst Media company.

On March 8, 2015, Kutcher sparked a national debate regarding the lack of equal access to diaper changing facilities in men’s restrooms with this Facebook post: “There are NEVER diaper changing stations in mens [sic] public restrooms. The first public men’s room that I go into that has one gets a free shout out on my FB page!”

Kutcher has leveraged his social media presence, particularly on Facebook, to post and promote content published by A Plus, a social media-driven content platform and associated company of which he is the chairman.

In April 2011, Kutcher and then-wife Demi Moore began a public service announcement campaign to end child sex trafficking. Kutcher claimed that 100,000 to 300,000 American children were sold into sexual slavery. The number was criticized by newspaper The Village Voice. Kutcher and others including the New York Times, CSPAN, and CNN used a peer-reviewed study referring to minors at risk for sexual exploitation. The Village Voice did their own unreviewed research and said it was only hundreds of children. Kutcher claimed the criticism by the Village Voice promoted child prostitution and used Twitter to request that Village Voice advertisers withdraw their advertising from publications owned by its parent company.

peak at language learning at 7, et al

can’t peak on character.. never done building your character.. it’s just you.. your dna

character is a phenotype and personality is a genotype.. character hides.. and comes out when in distress.. trying to make people see you’re not a bad kid you just made a bad mistake..

i came here to receive it for all of you.. i’m the fortunate one.. i was born a twin.. so had to share everything.. and i didn’t know there was another way

brother born w cerebral palsey and he taught me that loving people isn’t a choice.. and aren’t created equal.. created incredibly unequal.. but capacity to love

i spent years feeling sorry for him.. that made him less.. he had abilities i didn’t have… he taught me much

i’m the lucky one

character not how you win/lose.. how you learn from mistakes.. life doesn’t happen to you.. it happens for you

maybe we peak on character at 82
