The robots playing instruments was scary until I realized every pluck sounded identical.

Water Cooler / Hedge fund billionaires asking the important questions

"Last year, I got invited to a super-deluxe private resort to deliver a keynote speech to what I assumed would be a hundred or so investment bankers. It was by far the largest fee I had ever been offered for a talk — about half my annual professor’s salary — all to deliver some insight on the subject of “the future of technology."...

"They started out innocuously enough. Ethereum or bitcoin? Is quantum computing a real thing? Slowly but surely, however, they edged into their real topics of concern. Which region will be less impacted by the coming climate crisis: New Zealand or Alaska? Is Google really building Ray Kurzweil a home for his brain, and will his consciousness live through the transition, or will it die and be reborn as a whole new one? Finally, the CEO of a brokerage house explained that he had nearly completed building his own underground bunker system and asked, “How do I maintain authority over my security force after the event?”

"They were not interested in how to avoid a calamity; they’re convinced we are too far gone. For all their wealth and power, they don’t believe they can affect the future. They are simply accepting the darkest of all scenarios and then bringing whatever money and technology they can employ to insulate themselves"

Water Cooler / Re: Domain Valuation in 2018

All good information and advice, thank you. I tried RC's "yes or no" exchange first. I said no, buyer returned "What do you want, might be able to go there"

I looked through some recent sales and auctions. Saw the plural of the domain for sale with price listed. Searched standard and news sections of Google to make sure I wasn't missing some important related companies or developments that would boost value.

I settled on 5x his opening offer. Checked Estibot later, and my price is ~125% of estibot.

If it sells, I won't feel like I gave it away.

Buyer is thinking it over.

Got an e-mail about a single word, 8-letter domain. Potential buyer threw out a $$$$ offer. I declined, saying we aren't in the same ballpark. He came back with "What do you want? I might be able to go there."

Where do you guys go for research, or what methods are you seeing for domain valuation in 2018?

>calories do matter.

Definitely. I remember a podcast where the doctors were saying people who start keto need to realize they'll be eating a smaller volume of food. Fat is 9 calories/gram.

>feedback loop

Typical American diet produces lots of sugar crashes. Insulin overshoots, blood sugar dips. Body craves sugar again to restore normalcy. Repeat. Ugh.

Economics & Investing / Who will buy Spotify?
« on: June 04, 2018, 06:50:36 PM »
Scott Galloway argues that the last media battleground is music. Spotify is ripe to be purchased by Apple, Amazon, Facebook or Google to cement their leadership position.

He bets Spotify doubles in value in the next 12-24 months.
