@phillian I think you are making my point for me? @phillian also, an app that flips through pages of a PDF is trivially easy to build. @phillian This is a question of value. Economist is $150/yr. Skimm is free newsletter. point is better deliver something convenient for $$ @xBora iPad Air, iPad Pro @AnnaTarkov @mathewi I should be charged a whole lot less for that cluttered and annoying browser experience.I want 2 support paid journalism but legacy publishers apps just completely suck. @TheEconomist, @TheAtlantic, @WSJ all crash/hang/unusable.United Technologies is a $90B company in the middle of a $16B stock buyback.

@sbanjo He always does that to me... @sbanjo I do agree with Clay on this point...https://t.co/S3J8t6Ct0f @jw_outlaw @hoffmang @rmwilliamsC2C I agree very much with that. @hoffmang @rmwilliamsC2C @Medium I'm not making a values judgement, just reporting the facts my friend. @hoffmang @rmwilliamsC2C I'm more of this mind: https://t.co/S3J8t6Ct0f @FascBear Actually, the numbers I provided are facts, and therefore always true. @hoffmang @rmwilliamsC2C Actually, turnout meaningfully lower than 2008 and 2012. But certainly far fewer D's voted than she hoped. @zSweetEnlow @dpakman I never said anything about chaos. I simply provided a factual analysis. You may interpret any way you wish. @hoffmang @rmwilliamsC2C Hard to know with absence of VRA, perhaps some repressed. Still, the preferences of "half the country" are unknown. @hoffmang @rmwilliamsC2C I'm just saying if 100% of eligible voters vote in PA, MI, WI, etc outcome could be different. We'll never know. @hoffmang @rmwilliamsC2C Well if you assume the 46% of non-voters are evenly distributed, then their prefs might have changed many states. @arjunram Well, 48% let 52% battle it out for them... @BrandonMcDermot @brianstelter I agree with you. But US may not be evenly divided. We actually don't know what 48% believe.Gang, let's stop saying "half the country" voted one way or the other. Untrue. 26% made the decision for the other… https://t.co/599P085Fw5Add Leonard Cohen and oh how prescient was this tweet months ago? https://t.co/CsqPcpnSuO

Low turnout, GOP wins. High turnout, Dems win.2012: Obama 65.4M, 60.5 Romney 2016: Clinton 59.3M (-6.1M), Trump 59.1M (-1.4M) [with 98% reporting] Dems stayed home @rfradin @chchien Tell that to the Deportation Force.My personal pledge: Seek to understand, even if baffling Speak truth, even if uncomfortable Look for goodness, even in those I fear

@elkmovie Healthy debate among all the DARPA alum on this point. @elkmovie Tesla autonomy efforts do not use a map for path planning/decisioning. Only for general navigation, which they license from Google @BenedictEvans @FredericLambert I agree no one else agrees it is possible. It's a big bet. But big market timing advantages if he is right.
