D11 Interview with Elon Musk (Tesla CEO & SpaceX Founder)

Conversation between Skrillex & Jeff Rosenthal.

Bill Gates Q&A with Vinod Khosla”

(Starts at 28:12)

"The day we started Apple Computer, IBM was far more powerful in the computer industry than Microsoft and Intel are today.

The day we started Apple.

And, so, we should of just given up.

I should of just nudged Woz – “hey, forget it. We don’t have a chance.”

But we were too stupid to know that. 

We hadn’t gone to business school.

We didn’t read the – we didn’t know what the Wall Street Journal was!

I’d never seen a Wall Street Journal!

And that served us well.

So, what can I say? 

I think every good product that I’ve ever seen in this industry and pretty much anywhere is because a group of people cared deeply, about making something wonderful that they and their friends wanted. You know? They wanted to use it themselves.

And that’s how almost everything I know that’s good has come about.

It didn’t come about because people were trembling in the corner, worried about some big company stomping on them.”

Last night I got to see Bon Iver perform at the Prospect Park Band Shell. It was an awesome show.

I recorded this SoundCloud file on my phone of “Wolves Act I & II” during the encore last night. Still have…

Tubby and Mr. Frog.

Forgot how much fun singing & dancing in a room filled with hundreds of people is. Thanks @christomlin & @rendcollective.

One of the first things I noticed about my Introduction to PHP and MySQL class is the amount of people that are enrolled. My Ruby on Rails class has 12 students enrolled, whereas, this PHP and MySQL class has 60 students enrolled. Not sure what the reason for the noticeable difference in class size is. 

Just like in my Ruby on Rails class, we were also asked in my PHP and MySQL class to introduce ourselves to the class this week.

Here are some of the reasons my classmates gave for taking this class:

  • Really into affiliate marketing and want to develop dynamic sites.
  • Starting a web-based company and want to be able to make changes.
  • Need to add databases to the site I maintain for an organization.
  • Maintain racing site and WordPress doesn’t entirely suit needs.
  • Using the Joomla platform got me interested in PHP and SQL.
  • Want to create custom themes in WordPress, as well as, build CMS.
  • Experience with XHTML, CSS, Javascript & Flash.
  • Took 10 years off from corporate life and am wanting to go back.
  • Need to automate web testing at work.
  • Laid off (programmer) and want to learn a more marketable language.
  • Frustrated with 3rd party vendors who overcharge me & don’t deliver.
  • Goal is to one day sit on a beach and develop websites.
  • Unemployed (Network Tech) so thought why not learn a new language.
  • Did Computer Graphics, out for a few years, updating skills.
  • Recently got out of the Navy and switched career paths.
  • Unemployed (SQA Analyst - 10yrs), possibly changing career.
  • Position eliminated (worked all my life in System Test/Black box testing).
  • Software Engineer. Studio closed. Now starting my own company.
  • Want to help my husband’s business by maintaining the website.
  • Want to give captains of local sports club the ability to log game results.
  • Employer is paying for on the job training classes.

This is your life.

This is your life.

No Vocals. 10 minutes & 52 seconds.

Really want to make a music video for it one day. 

Every time I hear this song, I picture two people who are meant to be together but are always seperated by life, distance, relationships, etc.

Over a period of 10 years, they come in and out of each other’s lives.

Clips of their lives flash throughout the song.

At 8:31, all the “obstacles” that have been keeping them apart will flood/flash the screen.

Finally, at 10:10 - 10:14, they get together.

Happy ending. :)

True Love. Beautiful.

Warning: You will cry.
