wow. anyone speaking against steve jobs is ignorant period.
bunch of morons who dont know history and who cant FEEL HISTORY cause they were not there.
(most johnny-come-lately-tech-boys probably under 35 years of age)
i am no apple fan boy either.
but give credit where its due haters.
apple commericalized (or invented) everything you all hold dear!
i like elon but he is not steve jobs any decade soon.
elon musk's first business was a zip code directory he was lucky to sell before the dot com bubble burst.
otherwise he would be done.
his next business was x.com which he also luckily merged with paypal.
and now tesla... which is attempting to commericialize another companies' electric car technology.
tesla did not invent this technology and it has not commercialized it yet either.
20,000 cars sold please! toyota will quickly outsell tesla in electric cars and porsche already has out a better one than the tesla roadster.
i am a pc guy from the beginning. i owned an ipod but never a mac and never an iphone.
but heck... dont be bashing steve jobs. thats just ridiculous.
he wasnt the nicest guy but he sure was beyond great.
lastly, why not throw Isaac Asimov in your list. Musk is closer to him.
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Now it’s not even close – Elon Musk is more important to society than Steve Jobs ever was
this has been tried before many times. its a gimmick.
the bottom line is that you dont get any better of a deal.
even priceline couldnt pull this off
if you dont get a deal by getting VENDORS to BID for your business than whats the damn point?
groupon is a 3 billion dollar business. you make it sound like they failed. NOT.
5 months, 1 week ago on Sequoia bets $12.5 million that Thumbtack will finally solve discovery for local services
tell em Lacy.....
Twitter f*d up
the SEC and DOJ should have blocked the facebook-instagram deal on anti-trust grounds.
the stupid SEC and DOJ tried to call instagram just a camera picture taking service.... meanwhile it had 40 million members and was growing by 10 million members a month -- it was clearly the strongest competitor to facebook
and everyone knew mark zuckerberg was scared as facebook was nowhere on mobile with a failing HTML5 solution for mobile that just didnt work.
it should have been bought by twitter or more so GOOGLE
twitter screwed up letting facebook save their own butt buying it
5 months, 2 weeks ago on PandoMonthly New York with Union Square Ventures’ Fred Wilson, the full interview
its unbelievable that they can get this DUMB MONEY. this is DUMB MONEY.

5 months, 2 weeks ago on Kabam raising $50 million for employee liquidity amid IPO drought for game companies
siebel is not gone. its sold by oracle today. huge banks use it.
5 months, 2 weeks ago on The three risks
for months and months before the deal closed I urged WILSON and others to get the SEC and DOJ to realize that allowing Facebook to buy Instagram was against anti-trust laws.
allowing the #1 social network to buy the #2 social network should have been blocked
the SEC and DOJ were pretending that Instagram was just a camera picture taker
meanwhile it already had 40 million networked users and was growing fast as could be
its was a damn social network not just a camera app
would they allow google to buy yahoo? of course not.
why didnt google buy instagram?
they could have easily out paid facebook
sometimes I think these guys just arent that smart and this was an obvious one.

so let me get this straight. they are going to lose large amounts of money? how do they make money?
how are they fulfilling all their orders with less than $2 million raised?

6 months, 2 weeks ago on What are the effects of RelayRides’ New York cease and desist?
Chesky is a talker. Very entertaining guy. But ultimately he is running illegal hotels.

Can a lady down the street just start selling pizza's out of her apartment or house?
Does she need to be inspected?
Are there laws about food cleanliness and preparation?
YES. YES there are.
Airbnb is how bad guys will travel around the world.
Its damn dangerous.
As it gets bigger the problems will come and how will Brian Chesky feel when the first MURDER is announced?
Will he say... well that's just 1 murder.
That's just 1 terrorist using airbnb to get around.
That's just 1 bomb.
Brian is a great dancer around the issue.
Come on Brian -- just say it -- your illegal in much of New York.
He cant even admit it and wont.
Because they are flouting the laws.
The Amazing part is how many politicians they have tried to win favor from.
Why isnt Airbnb shut down yet?

facebook would have lost social if the SEC didnt allow facebook to buy instagram.
facebook got lucky they were allowed to buy their biggest threat.
zuck screwed up by being late to mobile.
and when he finally arrived on mobile he got it wrong by making facebook as an HTML5 app
zuck screwed up
and only redeemed himself by buying instagram which should never have been allowed.
anti-trust laws should have prevailed.
but our gov is slow and stupid.
