"Chad Rigetti, the startup's founder and CEO -- who declined to say whether the company is actually earning any revenue yet." who would also decline to say whether the company is doing proper quantum computing yet.
If he knew how much revenue he was getting, he wouldn't know whether the revenue growth rate was growing or shrinking. How the fark is he supposed to get Series A funding at a good valuation like that? Naw, man, he did it right - assume a given momentum sufficient to get the next round of funding, and who cares about the company's actual market position?
Young people are scientifically proven to be more liberal than old people. I can almost guarantee you that there aren't tons of old people using twitter. So based on the age range that is using twitter, then twitter should appear to be more liberal than conservative. A quick google shows the biggest average age group at 25 - 34. If you actually limited that to people actually posting on Twitter, I would bet good money that it is the younger end of the spectrum that is actually using Twitter. Yeah, I'm on Twitter and I'm older. It's just installed on my phone and I hardly ever actually use it. "Old" conservatives I know hardly even know what Twitter is, much less how to use it. Kind of like me with Snapchat. I know exactly what it is. I have never used it.
I work with a bunch of right wingers that flip out over stuff like this, but if the government contacted us about doing contract camera installs in people's bedrooms, they would be sitting around working on quotes and figuring up profit margins and commissions. I guess we all have our price.
It seems like paid shills are posting under every renewable energy article about renewables not being viable without government subsidies. Well here you go. It seems that coal is now the one in need of government hand outs.
So medium is now a small?
No, they've regressed to the mean.
Everyone should brush up on the story of MP3.com:
They will lose badly in court.
MP3.com tried this with audio CDs. Aerio also tried it, in a slightly different way. They will lose this in court. MP3.com had a ton of lawyers go over their plan and said it was legal. When they lost everything in court, MP3.com ended up suing the law firm that told them it would hold up in court. I never heard the outcome of that lawsuit. These things that are sort of legal for you to do, they don't hold up when a third party tries to make a business out of them. Not going to work.
What? Too soon?
If Ben Carson isn't number one on the list, then this is just liberal media propaganda.
The only perfect science is hind-sight.
