What Will Elon Do?

Here I am starting a series where I predict things.

Like, I claim to have predicted the iPhone in a technical journal article in the year 2000. And, to myself, I claim to have thought of Shopify in 2008, when I started a similar company of small online shops and amassed dozens, yes DOZENS, of sellers paying me 30 bucks a month.

So why not record more of these thoughts on my blog so I can check myself, later?

Here’s a prediction about Elon Musk that I haven’t seen others think of: he’s totally planning to introduce crypto micro and macro transactions to Twitter, as a subscription and transaction and “Patreon” model. He’s just been so obsessed with Crypto and it won’t go away.

Also I think he’ll buy Rivian.

The Helmet Has Spoken.


Between Planets by Robert A. Heinlein

Well this was a disjointed little read. Not thoroughly unenjoyable, but kind of perfunctory in its plot. And indeed, there are 7 eyed dragons from Venus. Why 7? I don’t know.

There are a lot of Heinlein’s usual themes: politics, a dislike of big government, soldiers. The mystery of the “secret message” was kind of weak.

Not his best. 2 Helmets out of 5.
