Every once in a while you listen to a podcast that blows your mind. You have to listen to it again. That's what happened on the recent Peter Thiel interview on the Rubin Report.
Here are a few highlights:
1a. Eric Weinstein, head of the "intellectual dark web" was an advocate for Bernie, Thiel for Trump. Weinstein works for Thiel.
A company where the leaders publicly share their differing political opinions. That is uncommon. Peter and Eric are comfortable sharing these opinions which are not directly part of the company's mission, allowing for freedom of thought.
1b. Maybe this freedom stems from embracing uncertainty. Peter sees his peers in Silicon Valley as very sure of their ideas - thinking we have reached the "top" of innovation here in 2018.
