Last quote by Chamath Palihapitiya

I would love to put us in a head-to-head to see how they do. Watson is a joke, just to be completely honest. I probably should have been more careful with my words. I have companies that we've been building and incubating for years in things like cancer and diabetes where we're bringing machine learning to the market where we've competed with competitors including IBM. I'm in the business of buying things that can grow in meaningful multiples ... over five to 10 year periods.feedback

They embrace the structural atomic level of value creation that the Trump presidency deeply agrees with. President Trump characterizes this as U.S. exceptionalism and Bezos characterizes it as investing in a great business. The language may be different, but the actual result is the same.feedback

It's tracking to look more like Twitter than Facebook simply from the perspective of the top line growth doesn't support a long-term oriented growth model. If you cut total usage off at the knees, then you can only grow in value by engagement, and then you only grow thereby by advertising and monetizing that user base even more than they otherwise would be.feedback

Good investors have to choose how to allocate their mind-share with the precious capital they have.feedback

The dynamics of that business don't support long term secular growth. They support a business model that is heavy on cash, heavy on value, but still susceptible to deep fundamental technical disruption. Much like Warren Buffett has said very famously, he doesn't buy technology stocks because he doesn't understand them, I will not buy consumer goods companies because I do not understand them.feedback

Well, here's what I'll say about Hillary – I think she is fundamentally prepared for the the job. I think she has a temperament to sort of bring people together and create a more pluralistic and inclusive government. Frankly, I think she has to just not trip up between now and November 8, and I think she'll win.feedback

There's an imbalance that means the product is technically, functionally broken.feedback

People are inherently good, that's a good company. You just have to re-energize them. You got to liberate them from whatever they're dealing with right now.feedback

Oct 19 2016

That actually makes a lot of sense. It's partially curated [algorithmically], but it allows people to go deep on things they deeply care about. It can't just be the last 500 tweets when I look at it at the end of the day – it's impossible to engage deeply in the product.feedback

Oct 19 2016

There are people there that are really good, but are probably just really sad.feedback

Absolutely. But that's a personal choice. I would. I control my company, I'm the one that invested all the money, I get to decide. And that's what I would decide. So yeah. I would.feedback

Oct 14 2016

And so we kind of treat everything as a company. We never talk about ticker symbols. We never talk about buying and selling. We talk about investing and owning, and so far so good.feedback
