The lesson of the Netflix crash: Beware of hot stocks, says Brett Arends. That’s not the lesson — the lesson is to know when to get out. I made 311% profit on Netflix and was very happy with that. Realized it was time to get out, and did. I had some goofus tell me that… Read More »

It’s very odd that people see the Y2K bug as an imaginary threat when in reality it was a very real threat that millions of people took seriously enough to spend almost a decade mitigating and repairing. Humans are dumb. Very, very dumb. Just in general, and nearly always.

Latest data – with minimal optimization @oneweb now hitting over 400mbps to a terminal, I think 1Gbps is achievable. These little satellites are performing very well. Goodbye digital divide. — Greg Wyler (@greg_wyler) July 12, 2019 Well fuck. Interested in seeing the pricing of these and other near-earth satellite plans, but since their sats are… Read More »

On a completely unrelated note I stumbled onto Taylor Swift's "All Too Well" the other day and I'm obsessed. — ADAM (@AdamSilvera) July 10, 2019 I hear you.
