RT @drshow: It's true: Soon,tiny robots will work in teams to do things like clean the couch—or plaque from your arteries. More: http://t.co/gvEQFijCrw
Next market for @Uber : monthly-/yearly-billed on-call car service for freq users as substitute for car ownership. You're welcome.
Wrong way to reply if asked "Do you believe Obama is married?"
"I don't know. He says he is, & I take him at his word."
Right way: "Yes"
.@MachineDesign cites an older piece of mine on technological unemployment that I think will hold up well http://t.co/qnsK6VfJbB
Wrong way 2 reply if asked "Do you believe Obama is married?"
"I don't know. He says he is, and I take him at his word."

@GabrielRossman just wait for the results of the local experiments w $15 & that will get real unpopular quickly, IMO
@rypeterson think they'd be small. 2% increases annually for a few years during recession won't be disaster, & fewer will make min over time
@SeanTrende stagflation was partly about men not getting unearned breadwinner rents of past patriarchal era

@pmarca @streeterryan kidding, but have a hard time thinking about how the additivity and layering works for food vs, say, plastic
@pmarca @streeterryan so...it's a printer that produces pictures of food that require 3D glasses to view?
Excellent @streeterryan piece on progressives and technology http://t.co/f57x5rzYvP . I have no idea what food 3D printing is though.
But honestly, I need the followers more than they do!
