When you’re excellent at something, risk is reduced to near-zero.

Commander Chris Hadfield is incredible. The way that he’s shared his story and work on the ISS through video and Twitter made the reality of the ISS concrete. He has inspired my imagination and gives me some hope for the human race. What an incredible person and Canadian.
My interest in space exploration has significantly increased over the past year, especially with the discovery by the Kepler mission of potentially habitable planets.
Enjoy this wonderful video.
Though this is obviously a bit of snarky fun, it does touch on the perverse nature of venture capital. While there was great promise when Quora first launched over three years ago, it has become something of a wasteland of pointless questions and answers. It makes you wonder if Quora would have been better off without the obscene amounts of money shoveled their way?
Also, it should be noted that Space X was first funded by Elon Musk who put in $100 million of his own money. The first VC funding round only came two years later.(via marksbirch)
I had no clue Quora had raised this much cash. That’s ridiculous.
Touchdown in #yyc on route to Winnipeg to see my 92yr grandpa and my brother from Switzerland. Also, an important business meeting. Another lovely WestJet flight. (at Calgary International Airport (YYC))
