If I had a start-up it would be for consulting men on how to improve their Ok Cupid profiles and it would be called “Stop Making That Face”
"Yet [Elon] Musk is also emblematic of a curious strain of denial that seems to infect Silicon Valley as a whole. His breakaway success is a powerful reminder of how the public sector can turbocharge innovation. It brings to mind the government-backed $500,000 investment in a young startup known as Apple—and the federal grants that funded the prototype for Google. But rather than becoming poster boys for public-private partnership, Musk and other Valley entrepreneurs have gone out of their way to distance themselves from their patron. Shortly after paying off his $465 million loan [from the US Department of Energy], Musk proclaimed that government should no longer provide such assistance. A “carbon tax would be a better way,” he tweeted, adding: “Yes, am arguing against subsidies and in favor of a tax on the end bad created. Market will then achieve best solution.”"

"What’s wrong with charter schools is that they originally were supposed to be created to collaborate with public schools and help them solve common problems. Because they have now been taken over by the idea of competition, they have become part of the movement to turn education into a consumer product rather than a social and a public responsibility. … What I mean is that you go shopping for a school. I don’t believe in school choice. I believe that every neighborhood should have a good public school. And if the parents don’t want the good local public school and they want to send their child to a private school, they should do so — but they should pay for it."
