For the lastest @VentureBeat podcast with @SamsungNext from @SlushHQ, I spoke with @tierscooters CEO on the electric scooter boom, the backlash, and building a company for Europe: ‘I’m very surprised at the speed we are going’ https://venturebeat.com/2019/12/12/tier-mobility-ceo-on-electric-scooter-boom-im-very-surprised-at-the-speed-we-are-going/

Congrats to SF on getting the basketball team it always wanted tho...
i spilled candlewax on a book and it sealed the last 50 pages shut so now i cant read the ending
 
This is a business idea, Mike. Let's start selling wax-sealed books where the ending is always a mystery.

Oh cool, 22 days left to read 52 books, meditate 365 times, and clean up the basement.
 
Hurry up and meditate... is the anthem of a generation.
Classic Twitter, and why trending stories remains a terrible feature after 13 years...(along with most of its product design, come to think of it...) Afghanistan is trending after @washingtonpost Penatagon-Papers-like story....And Twitter thinks maybe it's because of this:
How Small Giant Games got acquired by Zynga and lived to tell the tale https://wp.me/p8wLEc-aKr0 by @obrien
Absolute blockbuster of a story by @CraigMWhitlock: Confidential documents reveal U.S. officials failed to tell the truth about the war in Afghanistan. A staggering record of lying to the public about the war that spans the Bush and Obama administrations. http://wapo.st/afghanistan-war-confidential-documents?tid=ss_tw

Well that takes me back a couple of decades...
Of course, there's no guarantee it will happen, or that the costs will be sufficient to attract enough ridership. And there are plenty of competitors in this space. But it's a big bet that will be worth watching closely.
At @SlushHQ this year, one of the more interesting presentations was from @remogerber of @Lilium, the Berlin-based flying taxi company https://venturebeat.com/2019/12/06/lilium-flying-taxis-go-live-in-2025-this-is-how-youre-going-to-experience-the-future/ via @VentureBeat
The company is hoping to have its service in the air by 2025. If they pull it off, it's easy to imagine just how transformative it could be. In the context of the broader mobility revolution, our sense of distance, location, and time could change dramatically.
Wow... https://twitter.com/GretaThunberg/status/1202871267386376192

I don't understand how "A Thousand Years" did not break the top 100, I must have played that song, as a conservative estimate, 400 times this year and usually on repeat.
I'd also like to take this chance to remind you to listen to these other artists especially the talented @joepug who is one of the most brilliant songwriters working today and who captures the wry side of the American spirit so beautifully
 
ditto on Joe Pug, even though he attended UNC.
 
Chris please tell me you didn't go to Duke
 
It's true, but if I can still embrace a tar heel like JP then peace in our lifetime is possible.

Reagan did this for the Right in 1980, shifting the entire political playing field to the right wings. Even when Dems wim, they're still playing under that framework: fear of taxes and government. The result is people have lost sight of the common good.
That common good, and a belief that government can (and should) ensure fairness, creates a better (if still imperfect) quality of life in France and many EU nations. And it makes for better economics. Reframing that debate in the US is crucial for this election.
Five years of living in France and every day the debate around health care and social benefits in the U.S. seems more insane and incomprehensible. What I wish for more than anything in the Dem primary is someone who can reframe the debate about the role of government. https://twitter.com/timoreilly/status/1201576770794917888
