Mykyta PonomarenkoI used to really look up to this guy. But after suing Gawker into bankruptcy and now supporting Donald Trump. It seems like he doesn't understand why business and government should be separate entities. I hope he doesn't continue down this path, he used to be my favourite libertarian. Now he just seems like a political force in the far right.
Mark FromsonHe just wanted to come out to the world on national television. Why? Simple. He's a narcissist. There's no shortage of billionaires that have this issue.

Tian-Yuan ZhaoI legit thought he was gonna troll everyone there and be the saving grace of the RNC and this entire election by denouncing Trump instead in the best way possible (for the good of humanity). However his speech was simply a shock, in both a good and bad way. Still scratching my head why a guy like him would support a guy like Drumpf
Excited to announce a weekly column in collaboration with the great folks at BetaKit (special thanks to Douglas Soltys for all the hard work in building and managing this).
Each week Katherine Hague and I will answer questions submitted from entrepreneurs. Katherine will provide the operator (she built and sold ShopLocket) and the Angel perspective (based on her her stellar work at FemaleFunders and making individual investments herself) and I will provide the VC perspective.

Rob PalumboThis was great:
"I should add a note here to explain why Tesla is deploying partial autonomy now, rather than waiting until some point in the future. The most important reason is that, when used correctly, it is already significantly safer than a person driving by themselves and it would therefore be morally reprehensible to delay release simply for fear of bad press or some mercantile calculation of legal liability"

Jasdeep NarangI personally wonder what will happen to Uber in 10-15 years from now and how the competition will turn out against cars that will require no gas or living wage. :)
They may as well be toying with self-driving technology themselves already.

Paul RowlandThanks for the conversations, and ideas. I feel Uber, in the context of providing jobs to drivers is clearly one of a short time period in history, i don't loose any sleep over UBER i think those guys are super ok no matter what, they helped shape history ( and i use them often - I am also now checking out Montreal's new all electric service from time to time, and i use BIXI, car2go and commune Auto ) I feel its important how other services develop around automations, like driviier less cars, and the probable mini Point 2 Point EV transportations units, like the ones in use at heathrow, or the likes of the SOLAR installations and new energy networks that will provide more jobs than companies like videotron, or any other industry so far, or training advanced electrical engineering, sensors and chip development, new advances in aerospace and long distance travel via yet to be discovered technolgiees, and of course things like optimization of urban mobility : thats part of the 14 trillion in savings that can be brought to the public sector allown, surley thats more impirtant to this province, the country and human kind, and all living beings. This plan may help us relieve us from an idea that allows the moving of more people to go to work in a rush hour, (like build more road etc ) its failed every-time so far. We could think about one future that helps us shift towards new thinking : A thinking, that could shape a brighter future, one that would see people offering value they love to offer in a manner that allows them to love and live life, the race should be over and we could start to walk together.....could be cool, good night and have a great tomorrow.
Hasan MurtazaRealistically, the reason we need cars to compensate for the lack of "mobility" in our housing...many of us live work and shop in inconvenient places.
If housing were modular and entire rooms could be moved on a truck or lifted into apartments by crane...or the economics of it were more flexible, then we could live where we worked, and would need a lot less commuting.

Alexander NormanI think this is here to stay if the continue to improve product. The key here is the brand and the loyalty towards it. My daughter plays with the cards and watches the cartoons. Why wouldn't she want to catch them via her phone? The game is buggy but if they improve it I see her using it for a while. It's not the tech but the content driving this.
