Thanks to the many readers who pointed out that some of the Quick Links last week were missing, err, the links. They are restored here
. This week:
1. Silicon Valley is over.
a number of Silicon Valley luminaries in the New York Times. And, relatedly, this tweetstorm
. (I was more persuaded by the latter.)
2. Hatred beats love.
Or at least partisanship is now increasingly driven
by hating the other side than supporting your own - and it didn’t used to be like that.
3. Two bull cases for crypto.
Elad Gil argues
that the Telegram ICO is a turning point for VC, while Vijar Boyapati argues
the same for everyone else.
4. Yet more on AI nationalism.
The Wall Street Journal
has now picked up the theme. (The person to watch in this space is Ian Hogarth
, who first brought these ideas to my attention)
5. Conversations are not about conversing.
of Robin Hanson by Tyler Cowen.
