"I'm Brad seger. And I'm Susanna Palmer in the Bloomberg newsroom. Teflon Elon lives on on Friday a federal jury in San Francisco took just two hours to clear the Tesla CEO Elon Musk of claims by investors that he defrauded them. This one he tweeted four and a half years ago that he was considering taking the company private and had quote funding secured to make the deal happen. Friday's verdict after a three week trial in which Musk was the star witness shows that the entrepreneur once dubbed Teflon Ilan for his ability to escape unscathed from legal scraps is still on a roll. Tesla raised the prices of its model Y SUV in the U.S. late yesterday. And the move comes after the Biden administration introduced measures to make more crossover SUVs qualify for the newly revamped electric vehicle tax credit. Tesla had slashed prices on several of its models earlier this year to stoke demand and to qualify for the credits. The labor market shattered expectations in January as the economy added 517,000 jobs and the unemployment rate dropped to 3.4%. That's a low not seen since May of 1969 and all that is according to labor market data yesterday. Job gains had been dropping for months, but not last month, and that reflects unexpected tightness in the labor market. Former treasury secretary Larry summers says January's jobs report could lead to problems later this year. Firms realize they've got too much inventory and too many too many people and that you see a more economy wise turn to adjustment. Meaning maybe layoffs and economic slowdown. Summers was interviewed on Bloomberg Wall Street week with David Westin. Meantime, the unemployment rate for black Americans in January dropped to match a record low, or from Bloomberg's fellow. The Labor Department said last month's rate fell to 5.4% the same rate it reached in September of 2019, which was the lowest in data stretching back to the early 70s. That was down from 5.7% in December. The data showed that more black Americans entered the labor force and became employed still, the January rate is two percentage points above that of the overall population and remains the highest among the race groups tracked by the government.

"The point being is he knows where he's spending his time exactly and he doesn't waste time doing activities or tasks that he shouldn't be doing and then to add onto that he is going to immediately stop doing something that he doesn't need to be doing and he suggests that anybody that works for him does the same thing. I'll give you two examples. One already mentioned the interview. So if the interviews done in his mind he will end the interview instantly to. He's in a meeting and he feels that the meeting is not productive or he doesn't need to be there. It's done now for him. Most meetings are productive. Because they're very intentional but what he suggests to somebody like. Let's say me i'm an executive director or others. Is that if you're in a meeting and you're not adding value or getting value from the meeting. You should leave and so for anybody listening right now. Obviously you got to take into account your own age say our policies. You don't wanna ruffle any feathers but if you wanna take a page out of ilan's playbook don't spend time in meetings that aren't adding value or meetings that you're not giving value because it is a waste of time so the only reason ilan is going to be able to achieve the things he's already achieved and will achieve is because he's not wasting his time he's a very good time manager and managing the activities that he does because where he spent his time there high value things he and only. He should be doing what you're next one. There was only two. I had to give it a thought. Let me think. I kind kinda. We'll do three come on one more each and then we'll wrap up putting you on my third either south but i'll i'll think of it.

"To you. I mean you are there so many years and joe's world classes they come right so that's the key right. It's the ability for him to build world-class teams feel. Ilan does that extraordinarily well and not mankind will give him credit for okay when here your next one. But i'm going to a match you here. Yeah and i agree. That one is interviewing approach is very interesting if you get timed interview with ilan a. You're bad asa ready and be don't assume it's going to be for the allotted amount of time in fact it's going to be seven minutes eight minutes ten minutes twenty two minutes however long it needs to be and the other thing i know about ilan is he doesn't care about degrees in fact sometimes a degree is a bad thing. He's not a big fan of mba's believe it or not and so he does not like degrees in does not think it's necessary. He would much rather have experience and work ethic and smart ideas and be the right person for the role as opposed to formal education. But that's not what i wanted to share. What i think is another key ingredient to. His success is his his a perfectionist. We know that his design his ability to get the right design and i mentioned the example of the solar roof. But if you look at the vehicles from a design standpoint his standards are highest as you can imagine. And i think that's really really important because if they weren't at the level that they're at and this goes back to your point on the team when you get somebody like franz who heads up the design for all the vehicles you get somebody who's world class to do that then they're gonna put out products that are at the level that you want the understands that in order to delight the customer you need to have exceptional design so i think when i interviewed captain hoff who we had on the show. Recently the first interview. I had with him. We talked about this idea of when you build a world class team. You need to find an exceptional designer. That right there is so important. And so there's two parts of this one. Is you either need to find wilcox designer you yourself need.

You can make a cryptocurrency. I can make cryptocurrency. Like of course it would take some research but anyway there's no barrier of entry to make a coin or token or on the blockchain. Because it's it's an open ledger. Anyone can do it so you have all these shit coins that just exists for no reason like those coin. It's a mean coin that there is zero utility behind. There's no use for yes and what's face. Ilan must pumps it up and he says on twitter so people like into goes up. Those cryptocurrencies right. Now there's no regulation in the us. There's no regulation for cryptocurrency. Like we don't know if it's a security we don't know if it's a there's just we don't know how to classify it and of course the government moves so slowly and sucks at everything that we don't have like they aren't just gonna come out with an answer five years ago. They should've twenty twenty one and they still don't have an answer so i guess we'll get the extra piano so yes he came out and said x. p. ripple so ripple ripple industries a ripple technology is a company technology company. And they made the token is a coin and they the sec came out and says said extra. We don't like you your your security. You're not a cryptocurrency your security and like you start looking at this lawsuit. I don't look at the loss. I look youtube videos. And i read people in group chats and i mean discord chats and like you. You'll have a lawyer breakdown this lawsuit part of this lawsuit. It's like there's literally nothing here. It's like it theam bitcoin. It's all the same. It's the same concept so extra p. And they're like they started to sue them so that the sec is trying to make this particular coin security instead of a kind of a like a free. Al colleges quotes. Open market like cryptocurrency. But they're not pursuing this same thing for others is that is part of that too because it's maybe like an easy target because it's an actual company that token is and it's not just like an individual who kind of unleashed it is so they kind of have like a like actual target to go so for example. Bitcoin is there's no way bitcoin security because there's literally like nothing behind bitcoin. Technology real quick just so i understand because i don't understand the so what what would be the difference between security and a crypto currency or at least in the. Sec's mind what would what would the. Just the general differences be will. That's the that's the thing you bitcoin. There's no way security if theory and you have all these out coins which maybe they're securities but the big thing is that the. Sec chair comes out a video from like four days ago..

Because again i feel like i'm repeating myself and i am but they're taking advantage right now of of basically money being not costing anything. So it's i mean it's the story i remember. It was three weeks ago. I listened to the elon. Musk interview with kathy would and it was on youtube for free and ilan was talking about the importance of using fiat dollars right now because of the fact that if you wanted to put it into a european bank you're making negative interest rate. It's actually costing you money to put it into a bank money if you wanted to actually take out a loan right now if you can get alone your which you know say most solid companies will be able to get a loan right now. It's costing you nothing. You may even consider okay. Well i'm gonna use the cash that i have to go ahead and make a larger percentage on some other investment and then take out debt to go by all these media companies. I'm assuming that's what futures doing so anyways. Just incredibly smart to take advantage about what's going on right now and there's a lot for sale. It's a lot of really good companies for sale and it's cooled off just a little bit. I don't know if you agree with this. Robert seems to be that two three months ago we were blazing fire and we're still on fire here but it's not going crazy It seems to be. Maybe maybe we're moving a little bit down from the bottle bubble. But i see this happening for for quite a bit more time. I yeah i think. We've i think so. Many things in the world right now. You know have people's attention that there's a little bit of caution right now. In terms of the generally motion of the market you know is sort of like well. We thought we were done with all this stuff right. But we're not and so people. Are i think pete. There's there's a bit of caution in the air right about now. But what i actually do see is the desire to put work energy into this right so there is a lot of focus.

"And i remember going in the dead of winter when it's snowing outside and people are waiting outside of schools and church fares thinking alon- is gonna come to save them and That was something. I remember talking to you on about and he just i remember him saying in one Public talk that he doesn't wanna be anyone savior and he. I remember him telling me. And i think i have the quote he right he said you know. I don't think i've really upped the ante. The goals have been the same from the beginning. And i just think that's not totally forthcoming. He has upped the ante every time that's alonzo. Mo to up the ante and when it involves sort of the these local blue collar workers that are depending on that low wage job to to get by. I think that's when the ilan myth has to actually live up with the hope. He's promising these people as well. That's exactly right. And that's why i think that this company can't really admit failure. It's obviously because of the perception of the company As this innovation leader that is building all these new interesting products at scale that no one else can. But it's also tied to hundreds of millions of dollars in economic development packages and it can't come out and just admit failure it has to do it very carefully And very guarded. And so that. I think is one of the biggest problems here Now let's talk about why this matter so much and you touched on that austin. I've been thinking a lot about this story and the story's important for solar geeks because it you know there's a lot of intrigue around the solar roof tiles and okay so big deal. They can't get it right. As a of a few thousand customers get their money back and or tens of thousands of customers get their money back and You know they don't end up getting a solar roof big deal Oh it's just. Ilan you know talk talking game again and it will eventually do a big deal. Well it's it is a big deal because you have workers who are out of jobs or who have you know. Menial jobs who are being promised these great manufacturing jobs that are coming back to the united states and it. They're not being delivered. So what was that promise. What was this tied to. 'em what kind of jobs are actually being created at this gigafactory and why And what is the reaction within new york. Now that we know that the gigafactory to is not living up to economic expectations totally. I think that's a great question and it does go back to these major promises. Not just to create a solar panel factory Number of jobs but also to transform this this hobby. It's called river ben. It's about ten minutes drive south of buffalo. It was on a contaminated site near the old bethlehem steel plant which used to employ tens of thousands of people over over the lifetime of its factory This is a rust belt. Town that has really struggled to to move forward and suddenly you have this guy come along both starting with lyndon and peter rive ilan's cousins but then musk himself sort of talking about how this whole hub is going to transform into a job mecca. It's going to bring manufacturing back. And some of that is no doubt hype. Ilan himself had provided. But then you have the politicians that sort of bought into that that idea from local state lawmakers to the governor of new york and. I think you're totally right. I mean i've been you know sort of face the backlash of ilan supporters. They can be very Toughen and at times vitriolic on twitter. But you're right that that is a one percent problem for most of their products..

That's just my opinion. His partner thinks is partner. Suing running a ponzi scheme. Ilan sabar filed suit in los angeles superior court on thursday alleging. The cabinet persuaded him to go into business under false pretense. While working at cantor fitzgerald spar had developed an idea for stock exchange which buyers could take equity and film projects in two thousand eighteen cavenaugh. Fresh from the second bankruptcy of relativity media. Sounds like a stellar ceo. I'm sure that trailers in good hands told spar he had a six million dollar commitment to invest in the project. According to the lawsuit cavanaugh also claimed to have hundreds of millions of dollars in commitment to finance a slate of films under his new company. Proxima media spark came to discover that that was not true. The suit alleges. That's literally what the fire festival guy did. Very similar very similar it had virtually no capital. He said it had no viable financial commitment. Certainly nothing approaching the magnitude of what was presented over time as cavenaugh withdrew and replace one funding proposal. After another in each of lies expose. It became apparent to spar that cavanaugh was operating proxima and its related entities as essentially a ponzi scheme using meager new investment capital to satisfy old debts diverting corporate funds for personal use roof instead of paying employ.

Karpathy Talks Tesla Vision,
"Today. We're gonna be talking about a new presentation over the weekend. By tests director of artificial intelligence andre carpathia andrea shared some thoughts and new details on tesla's transition over to pure vision the removal of radar from the autonomy hardware sweet and some new details on what tesla is doing outside of the vehicle to help push autonomy forward so we got the main points from their will pull a couple of clips out as well but i would recommend watching the entire talk about half an hour long. I'll put the link to that in the show notes we've also got an update from elon. Musk on ai. Day another week. Email from ilan as quarter and approaches some news on subscription offerings from tesla. Couple more data points on the planet model as and gigabyte lint up and down day tesla's stock today but couldn't quite make it to four positive days in a row finishing down four tenths of a percent to six hundred and twenty dollars. Eighty three cents that did compared to the nasdaq which was up eight. Tenths of a percent are at so getting into this andre carpathia presentation these are always really fascinating to listen to. He kicked it off talking about. Just how kind of silly that we have these multi-tonne metal vehicles driving people around being controlled by computers as he puts it and that tesla thinks that they can replace that and should replace that with a silicon computer so one of his first slides here just clearly lays out the advantages of that namely reduce latency and increased awareness. Both in terms of perspective and attentiveness. And of course cost. There's a lot of human resources going into driving around cars today so as we know. Of course this is already leading to you. Advantages improved safety. Andre showed a couple of real world examples. Demonstrating that principle on emergency braking i i think we've all seen clips like that. He also showed a traffic control warning. Someone didn't recognize red light. The car dead and then he showed two clips here which i wanna play. Because i haven't seen clips like this from tussle.

He's on the Foreign Relations Committee. Stripper of that membership. Really? Well, Republicans do that. When they have someone who is saying things so inappropriate. Yeah. Stripper of that. Why Again. Do I have to give all the examples of the Times Republicans have done it? When people say things that are Um, just beyond the pale. Ilan Omar equated the United States of America. And Israel. With terrorist groups basically called US War criminals. Of course she did. I mean, if I came here from Somalia And was saved by the United States of America. The beacon of freedom for the entire world. Would refer to it as uh, Is a place with war crimes atrocities. Of course, you would do it with Israel because you're you're Muslim, right? Right? Well, No, I didn't say that. But Take a look at her. Just take a look at her. You think in any way she identifies with what's going on in Israel? The only place in the Middle East. Where Ilhan Omar. Speak her mind. So she leaves she her family leaves Somalia, which is one of those countries, um, that Donald Trump described with that word that I wouldn't use while especially on the air. Comes to the United States of America. Now she's going to tell us how to do everything. Had nothing to do with her being a woman got nothing to do with her being Muslim. I'm just giving you the background. If this place is so terrible. Why did you come here? Really? Why didn't you go somewhere else? Why don't you go to Saudi Arabia so they wouldn't have you? Oh, Um okay. So let's let's get into it. We we heard what she said. Um We Talked about it on the show, then finally, the leadership of the Democrat Party. Push back on it and said that's not appropriate. So she kind of kid soften did a little bit. But it was just like her statement, where she was describing 9 11 and said some people did something. And that Muslims are now persecuted in the United States of America. Show me how Muslims are persecuted in the United States of America. I just want to remind her That following 9 11 There was one act of revenge. Against Muslims. Do you remember? I remember because I was a reporter. Was down south. I'm trying to think of the state. Man walked into a gas station slash convenience store. And shot the man behind the counter. The man behind the counter was wearing a turban. The man who shot him said he was doing it. As payback. For 9 11. Sadly, the man behind the counter Wasn't even a Muslim. He was a Sikh. From India. That was the one act. Show me. Show me all the other hate crimes and show me all the other acts. Then, by the way, I'll show you all the hate crimes against use in this country. Which leads me to point to on this Ilhan Omar situation. Everybody in the media and everybody on the left says the rise in anti Semitism in this country. It's all Donald Trump's fault. Now. You can blame a lot of things on Trump and maybe some of them. You could get me to agree on Anti Semitism is Donald Trump's right Now let me see the one president who kept the promise that every other president has made to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to move our embassy there. The one president who did that He's responsible. For all the anti Semitism. Well, I guess you could say that. Because that would that made the left so angry because they side with the Palestinians and the terrorists that made the left so angry that Yeah, Maybe maybe it did spark some anti Semitism. But the real rise in anti Semitism and again I still believe that people do things. Themselves. I don't think that words have so much control over people. People do things themselves. But if you want to go down that path, then how how is L Maha gnome are not to blame. For the rise in anti Semitism. She doesn't like Israel. Kind of like the United Nations. Which has more sanctions against Israel than any other country. Why Not Excuse me, not sanctions resolutions. Negative resolutions against any other country. Take a look at it. Look at the track record of the United Nations. Look at who sits on human rights committees, which countries Iran Sitting on a human rights commission. Do you remember? Uh, President Ahmadinejad. When he came, he spoke at Columbia University. And a student asked the question about Gay people how gay people are treated in Iran, he said. What gay people We don't have any gay people in Iran. You know, some He wanted to know so we can send the Revolutionary Guard who's ever house it was in Iran. Ilhan Omar sits on the Foreign Relations Committee. Imagine that. That's like Iran. I'm sorry sitting on the Human Rights Commission. Do we really want someone on the Foreign relations committee who thinks that the United States of America commits war crimes? Do we I do think our greatest ally in the Middle East the only place where really A a person like her with a big mouth like her. Could live peacefully. So anyway, Wait, it gets deeper. So then proceeded to leave another member of the squad. Comes out and condemns Democratic leadership for condemning What Ilhan Omar said. By the way, the White House hasn't weighed in on this at all.

What's Really Behind China's Bitcoin Mining Ban?
"What's going on guys it is. Wednesday may twenty sixth. And today we're talking about what's really behind china's bitcoin mining band or at least a different way to look at it. There has been so much happening so fast that you can expect a lot of these shows to be checking in on some things that we've discussed just a day or two before and today is definitely an example of that. I'm going. I do an update on the discussion around the bitcoin. Mining council michael sailors spoke at consensus yesterday and thought there were a couple of interesting points that came out of it. I is the extent to which the impetus for this mining meeting was from ilan himself rather than sailor dragging along. Sailor said quote. I think he lawns. I order. Ask was hey. Can we come up with a way to publish boost transparency for bitcoin mining energy usage. I think the first step is. Let's come up with a protocol for us to publish energy information in a way that we can share it with the world and then work together to make sure that we pursue sustainable energy goals. Sailor argued basically that in the absence of there. Being a standard model for energy use. Reporting critics come up with their own models for estimating how much energy mining is using many of which ended up painting a much bleaker picture than the reality if this is the case. It's a solvable information problem. And frankly it's also one which does benefit from some amount of coordination from a critical mass of parties to agree to the type of disclosures. They're going to make in the standards for how they're going to report things to make them comparable the other big point from his talk was the extent to which this energy was the key deliverable with all of the rest of the things that people mentioned the notion of promoting more sustainable practices being much more nascent and still in the discussion phase. This was strongly reinforced threat by amanda fabiano who heads mining galaxy digital. I'm actually just going to quote the whole thread. Because i think it's pretty important quote bitcoins. Energy consumption is transparent making it an easy target for criticism. But what critics can't see is the breakdown of energy sources.

If you'd like to help develop those please submit ideas on get hub and read it and quote so inevitably you see that you see out. Great yuan taking the stock again talking about cryptocurrency. Someone already tag me on twitter suggesting this and if you're just casually looking at the stock yes absolutely looks that way but again it is not that simple if we pull up the minute by minute. Chart here tweeted again. Eighteen minutes before close dessel was at about six hundred ten dollars per share at that point in time it had already dropped from six hundred and fourteen before john even tweeted that if we flip over to the nasdaq you can hardly tell the difference there in the last half an hour with how those look the nasdaq trails off there as well and continued to fall in the last eighteen minutes. Just like tesla did in fact tests actually dropped more in the ten minutes before ilan's tweet actually more than two times as much of a drop their as it did ten minutes after tweeden about cryptocurrency even though the nasdaq performed worse in that second block of ten minutes after alonzo tweet so just like before. Yes tempting to throw that in as the narrative you see the stock falling right when you on tweets. But it's just not that simple and this instance is definitely not evidence of that being the case
"ilan" Discussed on WTVN
"Leaving the windows open in your neighborhood. This is probably a good time to do that. Get some of that cool air into the house. And then first thing in the morning. You can close those windows again and hold that cool air in turn on the ceiling fans and try to keep out the hot air because we get to 87 tomorrow afternoon. 86 on Saturday. 89 on Sunday Feeling like low nineties.

She's like, Well, the kids want Taco Bell and I guess it's cool for me too. So I said, Okay. Yeah, I'll stop. Well, there's one at 23 Liselle, which is on the way home. And so I was like, Oh, and that's typically the one when I'm grabbing it on the way home. I'll just stop there and I pull up in the drive through and there's a note taped to the speaker that says we're closed Sorry with a frown frowny face on a staff shortage. Dude, they're closed. They were just close. It was but 7 25 last night and it didn't say staff shortage. The place was dark. No cars in the lot. Just the the sign. I was in shock a bell Taco Bell. They shut the burger King down up there on 23, because yes, all that that's abandoned. That's the one. Yep, That's the one right by. There's an Arby's. That's where Wal Mart is. Coles is over there.

I'll just go and I pull up and typically this line is all the way out to like the service road. There's nobody in line. And there's a girl comes on. And she goes. I'm sorry. We're closed. We're we have no staff. To Taco Bells were closed last night, too. Uh, I am speechless. But this is what Joe Biden. This is part of his American now because he's giving out this extra money for people and won't give any incentive for people to get back to work. So why would you go to work at Taco Bell? When you can make a lot more money? Staying home? I saw a banner in front of the MacDonalds. I mean, tell you how things have changed like I almost had I almost had to contemplate changing careers on the spot. Starting wages. $18 an hour where It was and McDonald's. Yeah. Make McDonald's banner. Wow. Somebody shared it. It was on it was on Facebook. They took it And they showed it from where their hometown was. Somewhere here in Ohio was one of them. I've got I've got 1000 Facebook friends. I can't remember what it was, but it was an actual banner. I saw it. I verified it. Dude are one friend who owns the subway. I'll leave it at that They are having staffing shortages and they're being told that they need to offer signing bonuses to people. Believe somewhat something a lot. I'm paraphrasing somewhat, but I believe that was something that's kind of being floated around. And they're like what you know, like as far as and you know what if they're listening, and they're going to be Oh, don't say anything. What do you do in place? I apologize. But I heard that this morning and I was like, you know what? Dude, it's great. I told him about the Taco Bell thing. I was like, You gotta be kidding me. It's the car. This is crazy man. And and all the people whining who have no appreciable skills Because, you know they studied Japanese dance theory in height, you know in college and you can't go get a youth useful degree on that or whatever. Get a useful job with that degree. Well, I'm $100,000 in debt. I'm well, you know, and then they go. Well, you got to pay me a living wage so I can pay off my student debt. I'm not paying you $25 an hour to make me a sandwich at subway Have nets insane. That is insane, man, that you're not getting that you have no appreciable skills. You want to be paid like someone who has a Sopron sessional has skills. Learned something. Learned. Something went with this, Uh That is actually valuable, Dude. How about how about it? Lana Mars daughter. This is it is right here. See, I think that's how you saying whatever she's 18 years old. Is she the one that that Ilan Omar had the kid with her brother? Or is it her husband, allegedly her brother allegedly She allegedly married her brother to get over here Right now, I'd say that was with a different individual. What Anyway, she adds the Communist hammer and sickle to her Twitter. Bio. She she's espousing. No, she says are on her Twitter. I went to her Twitter page. She's got a pin tweet. They're talking about that there has to be there must be a communist revolution in this country. Wow. She's on a full ride to Columbia University in New York. Come on, man believable. That's why Elian Omar and received to leave and all these others sick Radicals squad and they need to be thrown out of thrown up thrown out of Congress at minimum, possibly the country at minimum, exactly exactly. Um, she also talks about. She writes some of Ilan Amar Sweet, Yes, access to a lot of Mars account or Twitter account, And she writes some of her tweets, too. Which is really scary. I mean, think about that. Um She called for during the BLM race riots in her city. I alright, you know what is the city money? Even sure. Just inner city. This is rock, which is that's a lot of Mars daughter. She puts out this call for donations for the rioters, so she's trying to collect money for them. What again? This is upside down the way this continues to go on. Like Joshua said. She's calling for a communist insurrection. You know the most brazen part of this Is there is not even an attempt to hide anything. It is just out in the open. She doesn't care. Ilan Omar doesn't care. She's receded to leave all of these. All of this squad. All of those people all those progressives. They They don't They're not progresses the communist masses What? I'm apparently they're actually they're They're openly communists now. Yeah. Let me let me put a hammer and sickle. Only the symbol that over 120 million people were slaughtered under in the 20th century, you ignorant fool. On Ben that.
No, China Didnt Just Ban Crypto
"What's going on guys. It is tuesday may eighteenth. And i don't know about you but it has been so many days of endless meditation and analysis on the meaning of musk that today. I thought i'd do some good old fashioned news. So this is one of those shows. That's roundup of about five topics. Basically extended brief. And i want to start with cryptos allies on capitol hill. We're so used to looking at regulatory risk in the loud politicians don't like bitcoin and crypto that we forget that this cycle has much stronger than we've had in the past. Here's one example yesterday representative. Tom emmer a republican from minnesota reintroduced legislation that would prevent the irs from penalizing taxpayers forked assets until the irs can provide clarity on its policies. Basically imagine that someone forked bitcoin into bitcoin alon rules and airdrop do your equivalent holdings on the new chain. But you didn't want the stupid. Bitcoin rules because he does not rule well according to guidance from october twenty nineteen the irs would say that your bitcoin ilan rules holdings would count as taxable income surprise surprise and other inland coin. Messing up your day. This approach says emmer and everyone in the crypto. Space is ludicrous. In fact it shows plainly that regulators can't just straight up apply existing thinking to this new domain now. This is the third time this legislation the safe harbor for taxpayers with forked assets. Act has been introduced. So let's hope this time it actually passes next up is long bitcoin. The most crowded trade in the world. According to bank of america's fund manager survey. The answer is yes. This is a poll of one hundred ninety four fund managers who represent five hundred and ninety two billion in assets more than forty percent of them say long. Bitcoin is the most crowded trade in the market. That's up from a little under thirty percent last month. Long tech and long. Es g both come in with over twenty percent of the vote as well short us treasuries even makes an appearance with around seven percent of the vote. This is getting some traction in the news because previous peaks have been associated with relative tops in other areas such as us treasuries in march of last year.
Recapping a Crazy Week in Crypto History
"Let's start however with a quick review of the stories that i covered in detail. The banner headline was of course elon. Musk and his fickle strange relationship with bitcoin. Dosier in public media. I've discussed this extensively this week. Saw only add this here. There is a conversation to be had about the power of audience in other words. This story isn't just about his whims and vagaries. It's also about how power is met. It out via social media alone has a bigger microphone. Nearly any corporate officer in history. Sure steve jobs could have called the press conference. That had every outlet there but ilan can think of something stupid while taking a dump and push billions from markets. In less. Than a minute of typing. There is a larger question. Here that once again comes back to unresolved issues of social media in society. By the way. If you're interested in this. I've got an exciting joint show with someone that i think you'll really enjoy to explore it more in depth than the next couple of weeks. I also covered the finance fudd around the department of justice in irs investigation first and probably most importantly the headline of the bloomberg p. seems to have been a little fearmongering considering that the sub-headline made it clear that binds has been accused of no wrongdoing. My point in my coverage however was that basically whatever the outcome is probably a net positive for the industry. The worst case scenario is some major set of accusations and wrongdoing and severe punishment which would be a confidence hit in the short term but in the longer term would clear space for better actors to arise in the middle would be some slap on the wrist. This would be bullish both for not having been worse as well as for most likely articulating what regulators expect at a foreign exchanges when it comes to preventing access by us citizens.
Chinese Lithium Giant Agrees to Three-Year Pact to Supply Tesla
"Everybody rob now. We're here today. We were talking about a potential new battery supplier for tesla. Also we're going to take a look at two b s next delivery timelines some updates. That are happening. There tesla expanding to a couple of new countries and we'll take a look at the updated situation in china as well. We've got no morgan stanley discussing that. Calmer waters for tesla today. Seems like people were really looking for a green day and we got that today. Up three point. Two percent to five hundred eighty nine dollars. Seventy four cents. The nasdaq was really strong today. As well finishing up two point three percent super-quick correction from yesterday and apartments. Were not gonna talk too much about bitcoin today. Only about thirty seconds here. But yesterday i did mistakenly say that tesla started their bitcoin position. Mid march i was thinking of when they sold. A small portion actually started their position either in january or february and announced that on february eighth so just wanted to clarify that and one other thing that i wanted to point out. Just because i've seen a lot of discussion on whether tussles decision making here would influence institutional investors and things like that. It's probably worth remembering that when we talked to alex potter of piper sandler back in february. I asked if he had been getting a lot of calls about tesla investing in bitcoin. In the first place he said quote not a lot to be honest and then added quote. It's not as though we had us have been coming questions on bitcoin after this announcement and so just worth a reminder sometimes when things are happening people point to them as a reason for x. y. or z. Happening things can tend to get and feel very amplified but sometimes that doesn't necessarily match the not trying to say that the discussion about bitcoin and cryptocurrency as it relates to tesla is not important but sometimes in the day to day. Those relatively smaller pieces of the big picture can feel like they're just dominating the discussion and in those cases sometimes it can be helpful. Just have like cleanse and revisit. Some of the things that are relatively more important. So that you don't get or feel bogged down by the smaller details. So those are my thoughts on that and that is the last. We'll talk about bitcoin for the day and for the week pending ilan tweets while recording.
New Tesla Powerwall, China Protest, Volkswagen Investigation
"Year and stay. We've got some news. On tesla energy. A new energy product actually called the power while plus we'll go through the details on that then we also have an update on the situation on the protest in china and some news on volkswagen slash volkswagen. I stay for tesla stock today especially in a downmarket. Tessa finishing up almost five percent. I green day sense earnings to seven hundred nine dollars. Forty four cents that compared to the nasdaq down about nine tenths of a percent. Interestingly on the rise today this was the highest volume day for tesla of the week and sense earnings about forty million shares trading hands. Even though fridays in general tend to be about five to ten percent less volume as we learned during the s. and p. five hundred inclusion analysis period. So interesting to see that. I didn't see a whole lot of news that would have driven the stock today. But oftentimes things that are not. News-based are what's driving the stock right. So let's talk about the power wall plus this was posted yesterday on reddit by user tang. Who said that they were just finalizing their designed for tessler today in san interesting thing power while plus they have shared at the spec sheet for the power while plus and this is a different product than tesla shows online with the power while to now a lot of the specs are the same here but what it looks like tesla has done has integrated some of the components that previously would have been separated in what looks like a continued effort to increase the ease of insulation. We heard yulon talk a lot about this. On tests earnings call and of course we had heard from on the week prior on twitter that tesla solar whether the solar glass roof or rooftop solar would only be sold with an accompanying power wall on the earnings call. Ilan said that he believes this is the most important thing about the solitary of situation noting that installations would be much easier because power from solar would only ever go to the power wall then the power. Walt self would be the only thing that we need to interact as a power supply to the house. Or interact with the grit. It sounds like increasing. The power capability of the power wall was also a key component. Here so not changing the energy but allowing it to provide greater power to be able to handle peak power
'Digital Gold': Visa Bets Big on Cryptocurrency
"What's going on guys. It is wednesday april twenty eight and today we're talking about recent comments from bcc. O- on crypto but first. Let's do the brief. I the brief today. Ilan pumps does again. Okay okay alone we get it you like. Does you think it would be hilarious. If does became the reserve currency of the intergalactic federation because nature loves irony. We understand but you can still choose to stop early this morning on tweeted the doj father. Snl may eighth now. You would think. At this point the ability for something like this to pump. The price of this mean coin would be nil but ono that is not the case. The thing is it doesn't matter that many other parts of the crypto industry now have prices that go up or down more or less based on things like broad trajectories macaroni arif's and market structure based reasons does is pure play on a me that means that the relevant game isn't what should happen. It's what do you expect. Other people think will happen right now. Alon tweeting about doj. Sending dodge's price up is the easiest reflexive medic bet in the market and it just keeps working does was up twenty percent over thirty one cents per coin and as an aside apparently does coin mining revenue is up like forty five hundred percent this year as well so anyways one other ilan related thing. Yesterday's episode was all about alternative takes on tesla's bitcoin selling well. I read another great one yesterday evening. From our sarah's who describes themselves as an ip slash corporate attorney who recently became a bitcoin maxi. It's a quick thread. So i'm going to just actually read right here. A short threat on tesla selling ten percent of their btc. The sale in order to demonstrate liquidity is a totally legitimate action. On their part. It looks as this move may have been premeditated by elon. Musk defanged shareholder derivative lawsuits. Master had the ability to announce their intention before buying and give their shareholders. Time to be bought out at a premium.
Tesla's Bitcoin Selling Is More Than Digital Gold
"What's going on guys. It is tuesday april twenty-seventh and today we are talking about why you shouldn't be stressed about elon. Musk selling two hundred and seventy two million dollars in bitcoin yesterday. Oh whoa of woes. We were betrayed like benedict. Arnold come back to life to give away the heart of our country like the red wedding. Game of thrones but even more violent. We were betrayed. At least that's what you would have thought looking at. Bitcoin twitter yesterday but to understand this. We need a little bit of context. This entire leg of the bitcoin bull market was sparked by tesla's february announcement of one point five billion dollars of bitcoin treasury. It also gave us one of the most iconic a bitcoin space. In retrospect it was inevitable. It put the world's richest man and the internet's most prolific memes ter- in our corner it gave other massive corporations some pause that perhaps it wasn't just a micro strategy doing this bitcoin treasury thing. Of course tesla buying bitcoin. Also flared up some additional tensions. Climate fudd has been significantly worse since the announcement instead of seeing ilan's involvement as evidence that bitcoins energy impact has been overstated and fearmongers. It instead proved to be confirmation too many that ellen has been full of crap about his commitment to the environment from the beginning you on. Musk is in spite of his great wealth. A highly controversial
Interview With Ylan Kazi of UnitedHealth Group
"So we always love having guests on our podcast because they bring such different and unique perspectives as we have mentioned if you've listened to our podcast in the past cognitive because research and education firm. So we do spend some podcasts interviewing guests and other podcasts key insights into the ai and cognitive technology market also explain how different industries are applying artificial intelligence. And so ron mentioned it's always great that We get to talk to people from so many industries because we get to see what's going on so our guest today were so excited to have us alon qazi who's vice president data science and machine learning at united health group high ilan. Thanks so much for joining us. You first we'd like to start by introducing yourself to our listeners. And tell them a little bit about your background and your current role at the united health group causey. And right now. I lead a team of data scientists at united health group.

And i was working for their healthcare division a focusing a lot on different business analytics and really starting to Use different needs and from their got movie. Where for five and a half years. During that time.

Biden, in Pennsylvania, Details Massive Infrastructure Spending Plan
"President biden speaking in pittsburgh laying out his massive infrastructure spending plan also laying out his plan to pay for it which would include tax increases on the wealthy as well as corporate america. Let's get straight to elon moreh with all the details. Ilan melissa the president. They're trying to strike an inspirational tone calling on the country to consider the possibility of american innovation but also underscoring the fact that what he's calling a once in a generation investment in infrastructure is also fiscally responsible a few new details that he shared during that speech included that raising the corporate tax rate to twenty eight percent would raise a trillion dollars over the span of fifteen years. He also said that establishing that global minimum tax on foreign income that would raise another trillion dollars and he went beyond what the white house had said previously. Which is that The two trillion dollars in infrastructure spending would be paid for over fifteen years. He said that it would be more than paid for over that period of time that they could even raise more revenue to make up for that amount of spending that historic amount of spending. Because he said that this is going to be not just about Paying for infrastructure. But also about making america more competitive. So you're starting to hear the argument. That democrats are going to make a against republicans and against some business groups that say that raising taxes on businesses would actually make american companies less competitive particularly overseas. What the democrats are saying. We're president biden laid out today. Is that by creating jobs and creating new opportunities for investment. That is actually going to Improve american competitiveness and create a path forward for stronger economy will see melissa how that ends up playing with republicans particularly on capitol hill who are already signaling that they are not going to vote to unwind some of the tax cuts that they put into place just four years ago but here the president calling for unity calling from bipartisanship on an issue on which republicans democrats have agreed in the past
Volkswagen takes on Tesla with major electric vehicle push
"In the World Electric or otherwise. But Volkswagen is engineering a plan to race ahead of Ilan Musk's company. In just four years. We are good and 2 25 or so that's Volkswagen CEO Herbert Dese. Company has announced plans to build six battery factories in Europe and to put out a million electric and hybrid vehicles this year alone. But he says VW is looking beyond this decade. This transition is not only about evey, so it's also about the car becoming really a connected device and finally also Driving autonomously. Something he says, could be about 15 years away. But D says 2021 is the year the company will prove it can compete on battery power. You think that we can prove This year that we are strong in TV that we are competitive in TV, and then we have to prove that we're strong enough common in autonomous in software on Ben, the market will follow on Ethan Hager Bloomberg Radio. Why do hedge funds and other
Karpathy Talks Deep Learning, Elon Musk, FSD Beta, & Waymo Competition
"Our here and today we're going to be mostly talking about some takeaways from a recent interview of tesla's director of artificial intelligence. Enrique are happy on a podcast called the robot brains podcast which i willing to in the show notes. The whole conversation is about an hour and five minutes. I would highly recommend listening to all of it. I thought it was very approachable. And hopefully it helps set the stage for a conversation. We're going to have later this week. Quick look at the stock tesla today finished down one point two percent to six hundred and sixty two dollars sixteen cents not a bad day overall. Considering the nasdaq itself finished down. One point one percent are going into the carpet. The interview again great interview. I think it's super interesting in terms of timing right now because this is so current tesla's obviously working on the fasd beta right now. Andre did share some thoughts on that which we will get to you. I do wanna give a little bit of background though for people that aren't familiar with andres background so he has a history and education research again. A lot of notoriety in the field of artificial intelligence and specifically in deep learning. Because of his course at stanford about deep learning which was really the first of its kind and those lectures were also shared on youtube. Gained a ton of traction. There so andre was teaching that class at stanford got his phd. There after that he joined open. A i search scientist spent a couple of years there but at that point in his life he had been doing research for about a decade reading papers writing papers so he talks about that period of time in this interview and joining tesla saying quote. I was definitely getting a little bit restless. At that time i felt like these algorithms are extremely and can really move the needle on some very incredibly important problems in society. I wanted to take a more active role in doing that. So i was getting a bit restless. I was looking at different opportunities and say startups and things like that and then one thing that kind of happened on the side is because open at the time under the umbrella of ulan organizations few times we were interacting with people at tesla and i was kind of consulting a little. Bit for some of the problems and autopilot. I kind of realized that they were dealing with fundamentally a deep learning computer vision and this was the fundamental constraint to whether or not this product were work so i was kind of intrigued by that but it was just a few consulting opportunities here and there. I sorta spoke to the team. But at this time when i was getting really wrestles to apply this technology in the industry actually ilan reached out and asked me. Hey you've been sort of consulting for the team. Do you actually want to join and lead the computer vision team here and help get this car to drive. And so he taught me a very kind of correct time. When i was really getting restless and i feel like this is perfect and i think i can do this. I think i have the skill to contribute here. This is an incredibly impactful opportunity. And i love the company and of course i love yuan and everything that he's doing and so i would say that again was a moment stars align for me and i felt very strongly that this is the right thing to do at this time and quote so long quote there but i appreciated having that background. I've always kind of wondered if andres heart was really in the research realm and if you lon had kind of convinced him and pulled him away from that but that doesn't sound like the case from how hundred describes. He said that at that time when he made that decision to go to tesla he and his colleagues at opening i had joked around that he'd probably only make it about six months. And here we are four years later. I'm really happy about that. Because i think under just a perfect fit for this role. Not only does he have an incredible understanding of the technical challenges that tesla's facing but he also seems to have the right personality for it. He talked about working with yuan. Then also get into some of the technical stuff here in a second but he said quote. He's a double edged sword in terms of working with him because he wants the future yesterday and he will push people and he will inject a lot of energy and he wants to happen quickly. And you have to be of a certain. I think attitude to really tolerate that over long periods of time. But he's around some self with people who get energy out of that and also on the future to happen quicker. Those people really thrive at tesla. And so i happen to. Also i think be like that and so i don't personally mind it. I actually thrive on it and the energy of getting this to work faster and quote. I think this anecdote probably serves as a good reminder. That high turnover isn't necessarily a bad thing just by default you'll often see articles without a lot of data honestly being critical of tesla for having high turnover especially in management. But from the outside. It seems like they go through these cycles where they have a lot of turnover in short periods of time and then they find the person that's right for the role and also vice versa that the role is right for them and seems like those people tend to stick for a long long time better to have high turnover work through a number of different people and find the right person than to stick with the wrong person for too long anyway. The other salient point. That andre made about you on came about from a discussion on tussles hardware in the vertical integration. Andre said quote. I think to a large extent yulon sees ai as just a fundamental pillar of a lot of this technology and wants to invest in internal teams that develop a lot of this technology and co design. Everything tesla is definitely about vertical integration and squeezing a lot of juice from the benefits of that and quote. He continued on with that line of thought and mentioned co design. Three or four times. I think which is really one of the most important and special elements of tesla. This co design idea particularly how the organization is structured around that idea. Tesla's purpose built hardware chips for full self. Driving is obviously a great example of that structural batteries a great example of that before that you had super bottle than the octo valve the list just goes on and on and overtime continues to grow so pay very very close attention to that when andre says that you on sees a i as a fundamental pillar of a lot of their technologies we're still in the very early innings of that actually showing up in tesla's business are at so getting into some of his more technical comments than this is going to be a really long quote. I apologize for that. But i think it's a good primer. So he was asked. How would you describe deep learning to your parents. Andre says quote. Let's use a specific example. Because i think it's useful so let's talk about image recognition we have images images are made up to a computer of a large number of pixels and each pixel just tells you the brightness of the red green and blue channel at that point
House prepares to pass $1.9 trillion Covid relief bill, and Biden is expected to sign it this week
"The senate passing present. Biden's one point nine trillion dollar stimulus package over the weekend. It now heads to the house. And he'll have more joins us now with more on that.

The president does have to sign it but right and said over the weekend that he expects the checks to be able to go out sometime later on this month what we saw in december once the last relief package was passed was that it took about a week for those first. Texas are hitting bank account so that seems like a realistic timeframe. it could take a little bit longer. If you're actually receiving a check in the mail though

We also have ways to minimize our to reduce the consumption of the extra speech to text. Now this is really very important because we we can save up to four percent of the speech to decks Speech and this alone can be the cost of the neck. Okay and even more than the ways we do that because we have cashing we can. Also we have sorcerer these species that can detect voice activities and silence and then we can stop and start that namic speech beck's deduction so we can Reduce the cost by forty percent. We have the expertise is is all of the features. I mentioned about the maths Jen also offered as a fully minutes of his where you have one vendor responsible for the interactions concert cautions good idea cautioned that the us is quite good because the botswana going to say number things. Isn't it so being a cash drawer rather than pulling it fresh from the cloud every time quite an interesting concept and more things are making all cars agent dan so you have one thing that not everything is available. What he use a different architecture. Well how how people try it out then. Obviously they've been using immigration spill into dialogue flow but if they're not using dialogue flow and they wanna they wanna open running with voice connect. What's the best way for them to do them. I would say that us. I was Cloud which is the number connected. You mentioned before so you can go through voice.

Thank you so much for joining us. It's been really really interesting. And and as i mentioned before we before we started a valuable conversation to have because that little piece of i think there's a lot of people in our bill botts in in the bought building community not not many people to overly familiar with context and And i think that little gap of taking the expertise and the things that people are doing and bridging that gap into the contact center is a gop. Nothing pink many trying to cross and so. I'm definitely glad that we can have the conversation. Thanks very much for joining us to have it. Thank you very much gain and standing was my pleasure. Thank you very much. And i next wednesday this wednesday actually. It's wednesday coming up. We'll be speaking to a head of compositional at google cloud all about google contact center.

"I make sense it makes sense right because you're not comfortable. That your buck condescend. Houston just going to say if you're not comfortable if you don't really let's say you're more of a legacy business and if you have a call center probably marvel legacy business Venue you may not feel as comfortable as piece attacks or now you. You might feel comfortable with providing tooling to to help your people answer questions. Faster could be a good place to start but it looks like We have a few more minutes but we do have a question that just came through from sam which is would you often suggests to use the same content for the agents system the voice spot for example a cinta filter to tell you about where the request has come from. I think one of the advantages That you can use the same in dense For the jet built for the voice and also for that agent assistant because this is about the same thing if someone wants to do Stettin appointment for instance okay. It doesn't matter if you're the the Doesn't matter if you are the voice ball or the rejoice agent assistant decem context at the same a dent. The advantages that you can use the same Data descent content in dense for all of these applications justin night not night in the way of approaching it. I want to a few minutes left but definitely wanted to get into the phone number connect invoice. I connect out of couple of people over the last few days. Ask ask me about this so be nice to kind of get together some insight on it so there was dialogue flow. Cx which was released about a year ago so he was a bit longer embiid. Just be mid broadly available now publicly. Our around within there. Is this really helpful feature of used it myself in in various demos and still flatten out. Which is the ability to just connect your dialogue floor. Cx agent up to an audio course phone number in literally one click does is an integration. Tab you click then registered with audio codes you provision a phone number. You choose your voice. You want the texas beach voice that you want and then you're way busy. You can foreign the phone. Nobody can talk to the agent and it's really cool. I'm not sure whether or not that would be something that you would use in production like the contact centre forward a call to the phone number and then have the composition. I don't know whether that will be the right kind of approach guy. Imagine that that's way above us voice. I connect so voice. I connect is sound similar in connects to the bought similar to the phone number. Connect those but then also integrates side into the context. And so. I'm kind of just wondering what what phone number connect is google google dialogue. Cx integration piece versus voice. I connect a those totally different. Things are the same things also difference. I this is the same. Was that just the different deployment option and the we call. It was cloud which is the phone number drought and other ones Remain or On enterprise now The the difference between them is that the voice connect enterprise Next door weather customer has so telephone insist. Mo of the customer through the extent or the costa the customer the bobby telefoni provider customers today unified communication. That's one move that provider the the number electoral Cloud next article service provider and we offer the numbers and the man advantage was really rate. I think that the you can develop your thoughts. On any both framework it can be dialled flow. Essential or inadequacy seat can be microsoft as your and the different other both frameworks ready integrated with other codes. You can develop your jet on any of this but frameworks and if you want to call your vote than tried to speak with your boss. Then in a few clicks you can get a phone number from new codes. Go through a quick wizards connect get phone number connected. You our inquiry both start speaking with our bolt. Usually this really impresses our customers that how quickly and easily can do this. This is the same architecture only on the telephone aside. We connect to order goods providers Numbers and the for that approach specifically also is if he can aggression google and we're part of the If you're developing on data flow from donald flow would find medical as it provides as it telephoning provider you would read are at the door or go through. These aren't Phone again. Then continue developing your bolt on data flows so this fully integrated within the flow. Sounds good so the difference that i noticed with the phone connect is not the text to speech is a selection. The comes from google so you go the standard you wave. But it's all google provisioned. I believe and then you don't have the opportunity in from from wild experience in the former connect to choose your own speech to text provider. Is that kind of stuff. It's not just because it's an environment. That's connected to google those features not available in the phone number connect. This is a world map into roadmap. We're going to have the flexibility to choose your end. The speech in speech to text providers. Currently we were with google voice as the is directly with voice will and then in the theater we want to allow the to choose your speech. Ovalles there is on the roadmap coming Wants to even less related to that age thompson has a mall broader question for the voice say i connect product in general anything. You can tell us about what else might be on. The horizon was locked away in the In the black box that might be the roadmap. Yeah okay so about the roadmap. The vision of the worst economic is not only connect any telefoni as is them to any framework. we also Our vision is to connect with various and the most investigative services.

"Bucknell Came from agent. Same thing from the customer and then they can analyze the streams and send read. I mean sites that can be displayed on the agents screen or revaming sides to the supervisors. So let me show of understood that so the contact center has signal coming in which is a call from a costa emma dot com gets connected to an agent but that has the ability to folk that call to send it to voice connect but then in doing so it will determine which signal at wants either the agent signal the customer signal and therefore it only ruins the customer audiences through the and feeds to is out is out front end of the ri- understood that right as about developer. Ukiah assessable developer. You can choose which streaming one to receive okay the customer stream and be the customer or agent or even both okay and then never doors. You both Each one we sent you separated once we send you a bext. Were so let you know who said this. Sentence this customer agent and then you can analyze then the centering. that's Agent interesting but everything else as far as the is concerned you. Would you build a ball as you would do normally so for example if it's a if it's a knowledge base use case you would just create a bought the integrates with your knowledge base. You out you understand your various intense or And then the signal comes in from the customer it treat the bought tweets not like a signal as would do anywhere understands what response to give. Where does it. How does it responsible comes back. How does the bought determined to send that to the agent. How does it. How does how does get in the the whatever the boss decides needs to happen or whatever answer all whatever the fines. How does the bit that goes back to the agent within the context you from the technical perspective that's the atari displayed on screen developer. And i'm sitting up if i'm a voice. I connect customer. And the first thing i want to do is sell agent assists essentially. So we're not going to do anything on the front end. We just wanna help. Agents and so create a bot that is integrated into our knowledge management system. For argument's sake and what does is it takes questions it takes queries finds and returns onces. And let's say. I wanted to take shots and make that part of agent assist situation so that when a customer calls the contact center agent onces the customers asking questions but while the customers asking questions can have the ball provide answers to the agent. How do i get the boat to give the age and the answer to the agent The the The this depends on the context. Enter positionally the boat that they lied. They they live. Agent uses a publications that manages the conversation with customers death complication. Each of the contact center has a different occupation. And the this is why you need to customize it according to the center now we have ways us based on Be is to add context and once the context on recession each centers have ways to share this context with a live agent and the this should be according to the specific discussed under specific contact center. And we have with his integration. So be some kind of some kind of integration that will need to be made into the desktop application to create some kind of widget that will receive a response by api something of the sort from the bought to then display within the emphysema. Publi you know if you if you can send links through their push linked to different as articles different places and things. Yes that's right. Usually we work with the department. They know how to do this. Daca thanks Y- can give another example. It lets you. You're on the center and the you work with age. And then the live agent. Transfers the golden age of the details of the course. If you're on a on the second live agent screen on the desktop. So how does this work. All of the contact centers ways the sheriff context displayed on the screen each one implemented Evidently also when you will do escalation from box to human agent anyone displayed on agent. Screen is about the same way interesting. So that's good. I'm glad we got into that. Because that was something i do. I was noah with voice. Connect around the not kind of immigration. Just in it sounds to me that the parts are going to be far more complex than than an average customer bowl sounds like absolutely but potentially more powerful as well because they're helping to people instead of what is that way to think about not only the live agent Helping helping the agent help the customer. So in a way. You're you're hoping in answer questions weaker. Let's say someone asks says something about the appointment. and then the agencies. The listens disease goes in hedges. The displays them on the screen. So this means that the live agent can can again answer much weaker also reduces the handling time orse and the thing about the from different danielle. Let's say that the you know not all of the most of the of the voice boats are very successful at the moment and the if you have a customer that concerned of exposing the virtual agent customer you can always start with the with a retrial assistant. That has that. I had the live agent towards this okay and the in gaza that the suggestion is not so clear not doesn't make sense. We've lost their land. That was interesting. let's give him a couple of minutes. The first time. I've ever lost someone. I think it is. Yeah is the first time i've ever loss on. That's interesting usually. it's either me or you have some kind of you know. I do the sound of that. I think the agent assists stories from from folks. Who have kind of start out with agent assist probably their peril given the does sound like it's a lot more complex to start there but rather than trying to do the customer face thing. I've heard a lot of stories of people. Starting out with the agent. Assisting.

Holly is one of them on. We are a. We're involved on the context standard business with many providers Mentioned before and we are men. Business was connecting. This context centers do Other delicacies are other voice. Networks in the Positionally i suspect what were you doing is the we were. We leveraged Abilities to connect to any contact center. Now let's say maybe explain a little bit about extenders. On so there are the ball vendors condemn fuel genesis via cisco nizing contact amazon. Some of them has the on premise. Deployments i think most of the be blunt or contact centers specifically for large enterprises. Our on premise must now. They're are trying to move everyone to the cloud. It's not happening so fast. There are multiple cloud providers amazon. Connect tweet nizing contact five nine. So there are multiple providers Extent and we are active on on on this weekend on connect. We we we. We have connectivity to all of this contact centers We can connect with these on. This is what we're doing for the last twenty years on activity and we leverage this in order to be able to connect the dots specifically about a chat bots that developed on any ball train work through these contact centers and while i say extent i mean egypt context thurs. I mentioned now one more thing about contact centers. Let's take for example genesis which is allowed contact center provider genesis specifically has multiple and deployment option so architectures or their voice or the on accents or they have on premise one two types of on premise on the centers and the have one on the cloud. And if you go to a specific customer and you would like to connect your boss to a nebo at connected for the telephony. Let's will be the voice about the and connected to the context under than the complex standard may use one of the architecture as i mentioned and usually i d i would not change. What have they can change. Maybe configuration that within they will not change it so if you want to be the voice box and connected to the context are you will be required to connect the weather.

Is it too late to get in to Bitcoin?
"Back in the day when amazon i one public it shot up roughly after some fits and spurts. It went up to about ninety dollars. You it was like i'm too late. Missed it gone. And then it capitulated down at shot all the way down to two and i was like it's gone amazon's finished not even gonna look at it and then it went back up to ninety. I missed it. I missed it again then. Went up to three hundred to four hundred. It's this constant m. I too late emmett too. Early internal struggle that we have in our brain. What do you think about that. Yeah i think this is exactly so what you're really describing is Things being relative and this is actually think the fundamentally challenging concept with something like bitcoin which is a paradigm shift so people think about bitcoin relative to other assets. If you call a lot of conversations i had in two thousand nineteen twenty twenty where around bitcoins volatility right but bitcoins volatility relative to what because volatility is a relative measure price when we talk about price it's a relative measure because what am i Pricing bitcoin and typically people are pricing in dollars so relatively speaking yes. Bitcoin is volatile compared to holding dollars. But if we compare bitcoin to say equities if you quainton bonds if we compare bitcoin to precious metals the volatility doesn't look so extreme. What really happened at the start of this year. In march of twenty twenty the world shifted the world changed completely and forty years of capital markets. Beliefs were shattered like smashed with a hammer completely shattered. Now changes really hard for people and one of the things. That's really interesting For me personally. I want things to go fast right. Because i've in crypto and things fast and like wait why has it taken a six years to get to this point but in reality as you know the arc of time is very long and it takes a lot of time for the world to change for people to internalize that change and adjust their mental models right and a big part of this in a big part of ice than so much time talking and writing and trying to teach and communicate is. It's really about giving people new frameworks mental models to help them. Integrate this new way of thinking these mental models into how they view the world trade. That's really important. I think there's so many. Brilliant people in crypto. Who do this in different ways. So we have this really broad cross section of people communicating a lot of ways talking to a lot of different audiences which is amazing. The we had this fundamental shift happened. Everything got everything else got crazy. It's not that bitcoin got crazy. That everything else got way freaking crazier and what i love is when i talk to people about. Bitcoin bitcoin to extensive. I'm like let me ask you a question. Did you did you. By tesla five hundred and yeah. Of course i did. Like tesla's going to and i'm like okay. So tesla has appreciated more this year than bill. Clinton has tesla appreciated close to seven hundred percent in two thousand twenty yet you bought at the high and they clean appreciated two hundred and fifty percent and twenty twenty yet. You refuse to buy so help me understand right even if we're using the same of dollars even if we're looking at the same volatility measure somehow bitcoin Why and then he will start thinking. They're like wait a minute because math is hard this we know the people just. They're not thinking logically for some reasons for some people when they think about bitcoin their brain goes into like a tailspin and logic goes out the window. But this is again why i think the collectibles narrative is in so interesting to me because when i say to people like do you know what a honus wagner card is. They're like yeah. Of course. I know i'm like i don't know like okay. One honus wagner card is two point five million dollars. Do you think bitcoin at twenty five thousand thirty five thousand forty thousand is expensive in there. Like probably not right. So let's dig into that tesla coin thing. What part of the fact that. Bitcoin is effectively. Founded by an an-and sushi. Who we do not know if it's a he she it what vs on. Musk pop very public. Are we in agreement. That's the toshi was the aliens. Are we doing alias. I'm kidding shocking. Oh every time. I hear that especially in clubhouse. Everyone's like oh yeah. It was created by the alien somebody yeah. Let's not do that you know. I'm already speculating. That twenty two thousand one. The aliens are finally come here and just completely take over. But i don't want to hear that. The ashley also created the nsa taverners been around for a while and then there's a holiday larue like there. What what part in in psychology because you talked to a lot of institutional investors to you talked to a lot of big money. What part of that psychology. That one you have a very public figure with ilan and then too you have associate whom no one really knows who it is what it is. What part of that you place until list. Yeah so i actually think. Bitcoin and tesla are very similar in one regard both are aspirational and let me explain what i mean by that. Bitcoin invites you to conceptualize the world in a different way. Tesla what eon has done with business. Ilan has memed a new reality into existence. The way he talks about tesla right is completely detached from the economic realities of that business. Completely detached from the economic realities of that business but it doesn't matter because the vision that ilan describes the persona that he has the cult of personality he's created around himself is aspirational grit song by the way cult of personality. That's a great song. it's also great like psychological phenomenon. And what. I think eli done so effectively is. He's the zeitgeist okay. Markets are just sentiment machines. And it's it's been really interesting. Because every value investor. I talked to like twenty twenty. Made their brains explode. It literally made their slowed. They're looking at these stocks trading at fourteen hundred two thousand three thousand acts he for pe ratio rate and their brains are exploiting. That's our valued. And i'm like you forgot that nothing acid matters anymore. We don't live in the world that you lived in two years ago. this is not about value. We live in a world where there is a lot of uncertainty uncertainty about the future uncertainty about the stability institutions uncertainty about our role in this world. That's unfolding and in times of uncertainty. What people look for is vision. Right and what elon. Musk articulates when you talks about going to mars when you talks about. Putting for tesla on mars. That's vision right. I think satory she in so many ways and what we're doing with. Bitcoin is very similar. And i caught this. I've been really obsessed with the idea of building cathedrals lately. It's like five hundred years ago. Right if i was a visionary and had suggested for the future and i wanted to express that the only way for me to create something that withstood the test of time right to create quote unquote immutable. Truth was to build a cathedral and cathedrals took hundreds of years to build and people who built them dedicated tremendous amounts of resources to building these amazing like technology a technologically very advanced like gravity defying beautiful structures and. Whenever people saw them they would feel inspired. Right like cathedrals were how we painted a vision for the reality we wanted to live in. Okay tesla is a cathedral. Bitcoin is a cathedral. The stocks that are soaring the assets that are doing well their assets that are aspirational right and their people. Whether it's a non community of people an individual it's groups of people who believe in a vision for the future that is radically different from the future. We live today but it creates a motion. Right people look at it and they're like that is beautiful. And i wanna live in not future

"Well. Megan welcome to manage and cut off. This has been a year overdue at this point. An entire pandemic overdue. Maybe i'm happy that you're here talking to us. I'm really thrilled to be here. Thank you for having me anything so to start. I want everyone to meet you. Because you're awesome So you are a member of space fund. You also have this podcast mission eve. That is fantastic. Can you tell everyone a little bit about you sure. Yeah co founder and managing partner of space fund Where venture capital firm investing exclusively in the new space ecosystem so very kind of targeted fund And then i also have my podcast mission eve which I interview the most amazing women in the space industry. It's just been a thrill and just so much fun to do. And in the hopes of inspiring more women to join us here in the space industry So that's that's a project that's near and dear to my heart I'm also on. The board of several nonprofits needs to do a quick shout out the space frontier foundation. The center for space commerce finance mars initiative and the earth light foundation Spend an inordinate amount of my time helping those at nonprofits. So i think that's probably about it so we're gonna talk about a bunch of different angles on the finance side of stuff which i occasionally touch on but probably not as deeply as i should in many cases there's some fundraising that has happened. In the past year that has been particularly notable for the size specifically spacex relativity. Been getting gargantuan amounts of money there's some acquisitions that have happened recently. And then There's a whole trend of holding companies. That i find quite interesting as well as a trend that i find interesting and more shady. Which is this whole special purpose acquisition friend. Those are the things. I want to pick your brain about. Is there an order. would you like to start with fundraising and then get into what happens after. You've gotten a bunch of funding and actually accomplish things. What's the right order there. Yeah well I think i'd like to start with this kind of startling statistic that that i i like to I like to bring up a lot. Is that One and it's it's one of the reasons that spaceman was founded. Actually is you know. Currently launched comprises less than two percents of the global space economy yet has received seven percent of the venture capital. Today right sounds crazy but it. It makes such intuitive sense to like you know somebody watches the markets but exactly crazy. Yeah that's crazy. Yeah i like it when you hear that you're like oh yeah that seems right but holy crap. That's crazy just hear those numbers right and now the one question i would have is. Does that. include any space x funding as launch. Yes that includes spacex funding and includes the you know that big relativity rounded includes all of that. So i guess that's my that would be. My stipulation is like how. How do you separate out. What of that is going to starlink. zach satellites. Then does that skew it or is it not big enough to actually skew. Anything no matter how you classify either couple billion. Yeah so you know the regardless. It's it's a huge number even if he were to try and take starlink out of the kind of the space x portion of that. They're going to be forty percent of the venture right number exactly exactly and so you know when When my partner. Rick tomlinson and i were contemplating a founding space fund. You know this was one of the things that was really bothering us. We were kind of looking around the industry at all of our our friends and colleagues. Who are these brilliant entrepreneurs going and down sandhill road and couldn't get any funding and meanwhile while all these other. Vc's are just pouring good money. After bad into launch company after launch company because all ilan has launched company and basil's has launched company and jared. Leto is invested in in relativity space so i need a launch company. Right and base fund is currently tracking a hundred and sixty two active launch companies around the world.

Whose payments they considered to be high risk and possibly fraudulent because stopping it in their tracks because these people are on death row. Well, No, because one of them in this article in the Mercury News is a guy that's been getting payments since 2019 before the pandemic. He doesn't understand why suddenly his is suspicious. You know what his name is? Uh, What's his first name? Mr Osborn? Uh, Casey Osborne, huh? He doesn't see me Valley. He couldn't he couldn't find work before the pandemic. He was notified on the website that his claim was suspended due to suspected fraud. Well, he had a He had a multiple number of jobs, a driver for an automotive retailer. Uh and, uh, but he said, you know, he got unemployment before the pandemic started November 2019. They were paying him for months with no problem. Then he gets a notice that his account is frozen because of possible fraud. He thinks they're just trying to lie. They're trying to quell the demand from new unemployment claims. They're saying it's fraud, but they may not be the case. So it sounds like again. They don't know what the hell they're doing. Yeah, they did that. They've been doing that for months. They've been freezing. People's accounts who are doing did not commit any fraud. On what basis Huh? What? What? Algorithm of the music. I don't know what Herman, They don't know what they're doing that this is a potentially fraudulent other than the one you mentioned. See if the guy's in prison E mean that might be a good start. What basis did they give? Pull? That would be privacy violation. You can't look at their prison records or there is no security number in their prison. What basis did they give thousands of dollars to Scott Peterson? You just don't care. They don't know what they're doing, and I was looking They did that day, but I doubt now they've been caught. They've been embarrassed. Everybody's yelling at them. So all right, we'll do something. They just randomly. Stopping accounts just to show that they're doing something. Or maybe they've got a big log. They probably have a bizarre set of rules. Like the bizarre set of rules they made up for the vaccine distribution. The total number of unemployment claims they're stuck. In the DVD backlog was about 777,000 for the week that ended on December 30th. That's an increase of over 32,000 from the prior week. They're getting worse at it. Oh, yeah. Ah, lot of them are claims by workers who filed the first time unemployment claim, but I've been waiting more than 21 days to get there. First payment. Or to be told that they don't qualify for any benefits because he's her initial claims that still haven't been processed yet. I mean, are you telling me that after all this these months or still fraudsters were able to gain the system there. Yeah, they haven't figured out a way to. Well, who's gonna figure it out? Earn any genius is that he d d. They're all incompetent bureaucrats who don't care. It's not like the smart guy was hiding out. There is no smart guy. There There is. No guy is going to say I know how to fix this. Because there's nobody who cares to fix. It's not their money. Other states aren't getting ripped off of this rate from what I've read. And of course, we discussed this yesterday. Other states do have a cross mat system to make sure the guy isn't in prison. It helps him the software's already embedded in the system. But here we got our 1980 computers clanking the long We have no basic software and cross match software. You know, anybody's 15 year old kid can can write that code. Their bedroom. That is, that is the simplest, so software imaginable. For God's sakes, Ilan muskets sending rockets out into space and we don't have one guy California. Okay, who can do a name match system between unemployment applicants and prisoners?.
