A startup says it has cracked the elusive long-duration battery puzzle https://t.co/ElU6b6FC03 $6 per kilowatt-hour for cells and $20 per kilowatt-hour for packs would be transformative for the energy industry. Hope @FormEnergyInc can deliver by 2025 as it promises

I've got an idea: why don't we take all of our obnoxious billionaires, nasty politicians, and other assorted scum and move into space. It would keep Earth as this beautiful gem of a planet that it is. :) https://t.co/RCcwozxPOn

Why is the world, especially the Muslim world, so silent in the face of these unimaginable human rights violations? It is unconscionable that people be persecuted like this for their religious beliefs. https://t.co/7gd5LJx2h8

Amid Bitcoin’s crash, all of Tesla’s gains have vanished https://t.co/G8RrqSoOeG --Wow, Bitcoin could take Tesla, the entire company, down with it. Not only will this Ponzi scheme bankrupt families and accelerate global warming, it will also impede innovation.

Oligarchs’ Favorite U.S. Visa Might Not Last https://t.co/PxIDGZgc5h @cjcmichel and @apmassaro3 are right: the EB-5 is a corrupt immigration visa that must be phased out. Immigration should be on merit and not for sale

Facebook is ditching plans to make an interface that reads the brain by @antonioregalado https://t.co/mmah1L7Y7P Technology still has great promise--especially with Facebook getting out of it.

‘We Don’t Need Another Michelangelo’: In Italy, It’s Robots’ Turn to Sculpt https://t.co/KrIk2a4g2f Robots can now do what human sculptors can...even better. I don't think any manual job is safe!

With the NSO hack, why aren't we blaming the companies that make the insecure products? They should bear the liability for their defective technologies--and be required to pay billions in penalties. That is the only way to stop the constant security breaches.

Love this @washingtonpost review of the Cult of We and its takeaways: "The Cult of We" is both a ticktock of Neumann's self-immolation and a primer on the ways and mores of a start-up culture populated by visionaries, grifters and moneymen. https://t.co/HXkrmcS3ZP

“They cry. And they tell me they didn’t know. They thought it was a hoax. They thought it was political. They thought because they had a certain blood type or a certain skin color they wouldn’t get as sick. They thought it was ‘just the flu’. But they were wrong."

@wadhwa Agreed! Aircraft / automotive cos need to ensure safety, as the cost of errors is lives. Having privacy breached via the devices that today run our lives, also costs us. W/o consequences Ship fast, Patch later will continue. Writing secure code can no longer be optional

The 🚀 that went up today ... & the ways other billionaires are escaping gravity... The basic science was funded by the US government. NASA advances cost many lives. Oh yeah, the internet that made them rich... & GPS that guided them home, .gov funded DARPA again.

Statements like these exemplify the flaw in Facebook's thinking that good and bad can be weighed out on a scale. Connecting the world can't be seen as a net good if the negative externalities are genocide or election interference or health misinformation. https://t.co/Ym3ZFJpprR

Optimism is good for you. Not just in the Disney sense or as something to add to your Twitter bio (guilty). Optimists are clinically healthier people. And they aren't just healthier, optimists actually live longer. Here's what the studies say →
