Fascinating to watch the #Russiagate congress hearings. Recommend it. Esp.

@joshua_la2 way fast - it's like the closure of the mines but affecting everythingImportant read. Exactly why Liberal Media made Trump stronger. “The Facts are True, the News is Fake” by @nntaleb https://t.co/t5AnfJzbf4No need for AI to dramatically reduce the need for humans. Radical automation is happening everywhere. The issue is the speed of change. @robzidar good question. Blindsided me @seouldan @garrytan you have no idea what you're talking about. Building tech startups is HARDThank God for Tech ! Forgot to apply for visa to @Canada , got it two minutes after applying ! Merci les Canadiens. Phew :-).Every ten year overnight startup success had nine years of eating glass where the founders wanted to quit... but didn't.

Retweeted by Fred Destin @AntoniolaReis what bugs me re: Russia - all the key private companies flagged it pre election (Mandiant, Carbon Black, crowdstrike etc) @AntoniolaReis on Russia I think we'd all like to know. It's a hostile plutocratic foreign power. Not the garden variety either. @AntoniolaReis don't know enough about what he did - Just always assumed he pumps all his money into politics and media - anything illegal?
