Cheering on technological failure seems like a right-wing thing

Musk is a fuckstick - I don't think that's too arguable.

But space flight is something to be encouraged and cheered.

Human advancement is a good thing.

Let's not cheer failure in advancement because the man I don't like on Twitter is poopy.

Hatred like that is dumb and eats reason from the inside out.

Major tech figure killed in San Francisco

This is huge news here. All my timelines are blown up and local media are all over it (lots of friends in tech).

Bob Lee, the chief product officer at MobileCoin, was killed in a fatal stabbing in San Francisco. On Tuesday morning, at 2:35 a.m., the San Francisco Police Department responded to a report of a stabbing near the 300 block of Main Street in SoMa. He was taken to a hospital but succumbed to his injuries.

Shortly after, NBC Bay Area reported that the victim of the stabbing was Bob Lee, 43. MobileCoin confirmed the information in a statement sent to Bloomberg and ABC7 News.

Before joining MobileCoin, Bob Lee worked at Google for the first few years of Android, focusing on core library development. He then joined Square, the payment company that later became Block, to develop its Android app. He became the company’s first CTO and also created Cash App.

Bob Lee, also known as ‘Crazy Bob,’ was an investor in tech startups as well. According to his LinkedIn profile, he invested in SpaceX, Clubhouse, Tile, Figma, Faire, Orchid, Addressable, Nana, Ticket Fairy, Gowalla, Asha, SiPhox, Netswitch, Found and others


With the debate about crime in SF, and the influence of tech in the region, this is going to be a thing.

Cable news complaints be like

“They’re showing pornography? That’s terrible! Where?!”

Feels like.
