+Delta, it took you all week but you have earned yourself a permanent enemy. The insane $200 change fee was the start, but you really sealed the deal by canceling my entire itinerary when I used a different, much cheaper, airline for the changed schedule.

Without telling me or otherwise communicating to that my contact to fly has been canceled, you then, at every turn, asserted that it was me who canceled my tickets. So, you sold my seats, on all four flights, and want to charge me nearly $1,000 to get new flights; leaving me stranded, without notice or options.

Beyond absurd. I will never forgive this stupidity.

what's going to happen to all the truck and taxi drivers when the robots get here to take over their jobs? 

""The answer is not regulation or a larger state. High minimum wages will simply accelerate the replacement of workers by machines. Punitive tax rates will deter entrepreneurship and scare off the skilled on whom prosperity in the digital era depends. The best thing governments can do is to raise the productivity and employability of less-skilled workers. That means getting rid of daft rules that discourage hiring, like protections which make it difficult to sack poor performers. It means better housing policy and more investment in transport, to help people work in productive cities such as London and Mumbai. It means revamping education. Not every worker can or should complete an advanced degree, but too many people in poor countries still cannot read and too many in rich ones fail to complete secondary school. In future, education should not be just for the young: adults will need lifetime learning if they are to keep up with technological change.""

Dear Uber,

Will you fire your entirely contracted labor force before or after you buy a fleet of robotic cars to serve the city quickly and cheaply?

Interesting response from Elon Musk about what types of big mistakes he's made... 

Another previous Q: Best advice you ever received?

A: "Always solicit feedback from friends, they're probably thinking it even if they're not saying it yet."

SolarCity was founded to accelerate mass adoption of sustainable energy. The sun, that highly convenient and free fusion reactor in the sky, radiates more energy to the Earth in a few hours than the entire human population consumes from all sources in a year. This means that solar panels, paired with batteries to enable power at night, can produce several orders of magnitude more electricity than is consumed by the entirety of human civilization. A cogent assessment of sustainable energy potential from various sources is described well in this Sandia paper: www.sandia.gov/~jytsao/Solar%20FAQs.pdf.
Well that's pretty sweet. 


"Even if the solar industry were only to generate 40 percent of the world’s electricity with photovoltaics by 2040, that would mean installing more than 400 GW of solar capacity per year for the next 25 years. We absolutely believe that solar power can and will become the world’s predominant source of energy within our lifetimes, but there are obviously a lot of panels that have to be manufactured and installed in order for that to happen. The plans we are announcing today, while substantial compared to current industry, are small in that context.

As a #cleanenergy company, we love STEM – science, technology, engineering, mathematics – so we’ve decided to dedicate this Valentine's Day to the acronym! We'll be sharing Valentine cards with ‪STEM pick-up lines‬ all week. Have a good STEM line of your own? Share it in the comments!

California to ban plastic bags

California's legislature passed a bill to ban plastic bans. The governor has until September 30 to sign the bill to make it a law. This will be the first state ban on plastic bans. There have been bans on the county and city level, notably in Hawaii.

What do you think about banning plastic bags?

Two months ago, Philip Johnson helped kill patent reform. Now he might be the next head of the Patent Office.

Hack Reactor has been awesome beyond any experience I had imagined. My motto when I arrived was simple... "I came to make money, not friends". I expected to work really hard, make my portfolio solid, and leave with the ability to find employment as a software engineer. I looked at the program as a way to reboot my career (previously in the business side of a few software companies) into an empowered engineering role. All of those objectives have been exceeded. The program has been so much more than a really challenging software development bootcamp. All the 'it's hard' and 'i learned a lot' comments and reviews that I read are accurate. In addition to those, however, I'm extremely satisfied by the soft-skills training and the support of the instructors and staff at Hack Reactor. There are so many opportunities to learn about the industry from Alumni and Guest Speakers. There is so much encouragement to participate in the community, and to introduce yourself to potential mentors in the developers and guest instructors that come through the program. It really has been a tremendously awesome experience, and I'm very glad that I have spent the last 12 weeks working, and making friends, with the wonderful group of students and staff at Hack Reactor. I couldn't be happier with my decision.

The food was nothing special. We had a lemon tart, an egg and cheese sandwich and a quiche. All the food was "meh".
