Automatic TRANSCRIPT

I guess this week is Josh Wolff co founder and managing partner at Lux capital. I had Josh on the podcast last year, which is one of the most popular episodes in the show's history. This is a continuation of our ongoing conversation about investing in the frontiers of technology, my favorite thing about Josh. And the way that he invests is the mosaic that he and his team at locks are constantly building to understand the world, and where new companies may fit in. We cover a crazy variety of topics from business model invasion roles of the CEO of the military, the death of privacy and EROs of human progress. Please enjoy round two with Josh Wolff.

And so you would take twenty year for out projects and basically pull them in Star Trek like into these twenty month, frenzied, prog. Facts..
