Great @kickstarter campaign @rags @niemanlab @niemanreports I see one solution: be the change you want to see. Secondly, if don’t like tech - there is climate changeAccountability is a challenge in every sphere because of controlled messaging. Everything is Hollywood now! mean like politics, fashion and sports?

@rags how many of their product/tech projections they have fallen behind. I remember Amazon got same shit in the early days. :-) @DaveLeeBBC I am sure at the end of it all they will have a car on the road. Just not what we read in the papers today. Headlines 😉 @tedserbinski @Ford it be interesting to see if they really do/ also lot of other stuff needs to happen. @tedserbinski next time I am there...Q about driverless cars from @Ford: who owns the data, who owns the car & how does it jive with law enforcement/privacy? @DaveLeeBBC @tedserbinski no one doubts that they can make a car. The problem is real world has some issues & tech that needs to be developed..@DaveLeeBBC the car they talk about and even draft regulations don't jive and will make this car illegal. @DaveLeeBBC put this in context of legislative issues, other practical realities a this is a claim on timeline I doubt, not their abilities.Ford’s Road to Full Autonomy — It be fun to see if this really happens. Not holding my breath on it. Go @Tesla!’s Road to Full Autonomy — Never mind that this is a lot of PR/Hot Air.

Read this today Ad-Tech, more like advertising itself :-) Or AOL happy to see her go & focus on stalling traffic or other internal issues. Lot to dig for media reporters Wait, they couldn't make her chairwoman of her own company? Why isn't AOL/Tim investors in the company? I suspect WSJ got hold of Series A info gave them short window of time to respond & AOL couldn't respond properly of questions about @ariannahuff leaving AOL after reading the story & lack of proper PR/Process management by AOL & @timarmstrongaolWhen you aren't posting good enough numbers during an election year, maybe it is a good time to leave!
