the uber IPO is amazing, they basically admitted that they have no way to ever actually make money but people are still going to invest because of brand recognition, tech is going great everyone
@dankwraith yet more reason why I never want to work at a tech corp
@dankwraith at most, it's the first to make it so obvious that's what's happening
On Hacker News, I pointed out that they really aren't even a tech company. At least no more than your regular retailer with an online store, or a bank with online banking. I was instantly voted down to zero.
@dankwraith "greater fools theory" lol
@dankwraith How fucked is it that despite all Microsoft has done you can at least look at them and say "Well at least they sell an actual product"?
@dankwraith Wait what.
I mean like I know that's TRUE, but they just, SAID it??
@gaditb cant lie about your financials when the SEC is involved lol
@dankwraith a pondsy scheem
@dankwraith ponzi scheme. Pyramid schemes are a different beast.
@dankwraith *vaguely points at a classic movie*
