Add 6 months to a year because of bullshit, but still

Has to do with tech inasmuch as i am pissed off that it's a goddamned pain in the rear end to get Korean food in the Bay area north of Sunnyvale for some reason

this is 100% false, as the giant soulless buildings they're putting up now loving suck from the perspective of creating a community since there's like 4 retail units for every 100 apartments. the luxury towers end up with an extremely overpriced restaurant as the only retail tenant while the shorter block-long ones in SoMA and mission bay ones choose four from a list of: nail salon, hair salon, hipster barber shop, dry cleaner, pet toy/groomer, somewhat overpriced restaurant, group exercise studio, coffee shop, bank branch.

we should be building central paris/the east village, not west harlem. high density housing without high density retail/services makes unlivable spaces. alternately go hong kong/singapore and put a 3-5 story mall in the bottom of every apartment tower.

Stick some 50 story malls around

Also confiscate all land value so there's no profit in it

They made the flight 70% cheaper and made the price 15% less. I wouldn't put it above the musk to still be losing money but shotwell will regularly stand up to musk and that's why it's mostly succeeded

Tesla has like 30% better margins than normal cars, too, they just blew it on stupid poo poo

The Mars rocket is a deffo candidate to gently caress up on, but it looks like the current thing they're doing is trying to kill telecoms. Deec target, I won't begrudge them if they fight

Yes, but at the same time they're dumping a boatload into RnD. So I think they're losing money, but in a "good way".

Until you see what they're spending it on, anyway.

Starlink is a solution in search of a problem, and won't be as successful as people hope.

We don't have the 50 story soulless concrete apartments yet, we need to beam the benefits of 50 story soulless concrete apartments to the hinterlands

your opportunities to get in on this kind of grift are purely determined by who your parents are

the successful grifter may, incidentally, have a galaxy brain or an mba in finance, but neither of those were key qualifications to getting the sweet money shower to rain down

mostly it was having a rich dad who knew a guy in college or went golfing with someone

Eh, I know like 4 grifters who weren't born to rich dads or poo poo. Real req is going to plutocrat school

Almost no optimization actually used in industry above the level of calc 4 and Lin alg, because that's what you get when you hire CS peeps. Modelers actually being able to actually code is de facto a hard requirement, which makes taking random phds a dicey proposition and limits the number of phds you can get.
