Quoted @rtnarch

California, against best science, withholds 330,000 vaccines, when no one had unmanageable reaction, with little evidence, as the state suspends air quality rules in LA because crematoriums are creating so much smoke. Plenty of arms in other states. https://t.co/jmummyVZ51

First do no harm means it's ok to kill people because of acts of omission. Don't worry about net lives saved or lost by delaying vaccinations. https://t.co/8Kpbhgeo59

Quoted @rabois

CEO’s frequently want advice on innovating while running a successful execution organization. For key lessons: https://t.co/NieqaOzrXr.

Awesome piece. @rabois always mentions in our board meetings that anything we do should add a zero (i.e. 10x) and we should reject any ideas that just add a percentage (i.e. 20%). Start by setting the bar first so you automatically eliminate any small/conservative idea https://t.co/wLMQUJSoTv

Well this is something I never expected to see... 😮 https://t.co/hSFlaSB4Jc

Israel serostudy: 98% have sterilizing immunity after second Pfizer shot; they cannot infect others. https://t.co/9vT5OD02xq

The difference between experience and knowledge: https://t.co/E7w8OOt2S4

Couldn’t be more true. The ability to use bits of knowledge to imagine new solutions across disciplines is a key and rare skill that drives innovation. https://t.co/nYT4hlESPz

Among the several hundred books I'm studying for my book on Maintenance, none has more revelations per page than @paragkhanna's CONNECTOGRAPHY: Mapping the Future of Global Civilization. It is about humanity's infrastructure. https://t.co/k0aCOdSViY

Revelations (or insights) per page of "things one had not realized" is a great metric for a (non-fiction) book https://t.co/DnHNiMTZ6V

Quoted @NellieBowles

The criticism of my SF story is funny because it’s basically: “this trend is fake, nothing is wrong with San Francisco, but also it is real and all the people leaving are jerks and should leave”

Sorry you misread. No mention of % of population leaving takes a small minority and make it sound like a majority. Accurate story telling means getting facts right before formulating the story. The more old timers leave the more room it makes for rejuvenation with newcomers. https://t.co/4oFm7R61A2

Quoted @vkhosla

NYT delights in knocking Silicon Value but the more dinosaurs like Oracle leave & old tech guard leaves it makes room for new blood & rejuvenation. NYT (& other old media) refused in my personal conversations in the late 90's to acknowledge the change that new media was driving https://t.co/tNdBv1uz0j

Incidentally, I hear that the NYT's ads systems are much worse than Google in respecting/sharing personal data despite the hypocrisy of their reporting on the big bad @Google . As for "tech folks moving" there is no reporting of % of tech work force or founders that have moved? https://t.co/SXOm4S5dIs

Quoted @nytimes

Tech workers in the Bay Area have money in the bank and suddenly movable jobs. They’re packing up. https://t.co/TK6bLli3W4

Humbled and excited to serve as WH science advisor for President-elect @JoeBiden. He has assembled a diverse team of brilliant scientists and is elevating the role of science. So much to be done, and it will take everyone working together. #Scienceisback!

Survived my first presentation to @mlevchin nearly 20 years ago. Thrilled to help him build #PYPL, #Yelp and #Affirm.

Happy to back you and Max at Slide and then you at Square and Max at Affirm. https://t.co/qMWAscOCpK

Quoted @mlevchin

More than eight years ago, we set out to take on credit cards and change the way we pay. We built Affirm from the ground up to align with the needs of consumers and merchants and to succeed when they succeed.

Lucky to be the first investor. Thanks for the great outcome. https://t.co/q2cV9DMP37

Quoted @techreview

.@anh_ng8 thinks the results highlight how hard it is to make AIs that understand and reason like humans. “Nobody has a clue,” he says. https://t.co/MQzrkn6HfV

The question isn’t what it can do today but rather the rate at which it is improving. Imagine as usual what things can be versus what it is today. https://t.co/bHufCDxeXO
