Re: Michigan Is Building a Model City to Test Networked Self-Driving Cars - http://motherboard.vice.com/read...
"I think the fact that you have such a myopic view of how someone could test these cars without putting lives at risk and that this is the only way and it is self evident only goes to reinforce my argument of how stagnant and un-innovative they are. Volvo is testing self driving cars in Sweden, do you think they are building multimillion dollar fake cities? No. Google has started testing cars on the streets of Mountain View and have been testing cars all across the world without incident. Let's face it, if it weren't for Google, the auto companies in Detroit would still be doing absolutely nothing innovative. It is only because of Google that these companies have had to pretend to be doing something of interest." - durbin

Re: Michigan Is Building a Model City to Test Networked Self-Driving Cars - http://motherboard.vice.com/read...
"As someone that grew up right next to Ann Arbor and Detroit, this idea just shows that the auto industry dinosaurs haven't really learned anything from their failures of the past few decades. Rather than thinking of ways to safely test the initial iterations of their designs on any of the thousands of actual cities around the world, they are going to spend millions building animatronic robots that simulate pedestrians and bicyclists? it's sad. They are like little children pretending to be solving a problem when the grownups in Silicon Valley and other parts of the world are actually solving the problem." - durbin

Re: Tesla CEO Elon Musk: Gigafactory will take battery production 'to another level' - http://www.mercurynews.com/ci_2576...
"Ha. I keep reading your posts and then I felt bad for wasting my time commenting at all. Your comments just get dumber and dumber as they go down. I appreciate hearing different points of few and its difficult to go against an article in comments but this is just dumb." - durbin

"From your posts it is obvious you're not a technical person, sounds like you're probably in finance. As an MBA with a tech background I have to say that people like you have zero vision on the future unless someone tells you. Its funny and sad at the same time because when you don't really understand the first principles of why things happen you can't tell the frauds from the successes." - durbin

Re: Time to Restore our Democracy - http://continuations.com/post...
"Again, the CR is not the forum for this debate in any way, shape or form. We've had 7 years to study the ACA with Romneycare and it is actually going pretty well, no matter what the extremists like yourself and Fox News say. Comparing it to Jim Crow laws? Ha, like I said, you've gone off the deep end and people realize it." - durbin

Re: Time to Restore our Democracy - http://continuations.com/post...
"The CR is not in any way the proper channel for discussion on the affordable care act. Debate occurred when the bill was being written and there was a big compromise by the democrats as many wanted a single payer healthcare system. The ACA is a republican idea don't you forget. Then the ACA was held up by the supreme court and then the people of the united states gave their stamp of approval by reelecting Obama. That is the problem with delaying it a year. You guys have officially gone off the deep end and thankfully the general public is acknowledging it." - durbin

Re: Which Universities Produce the Most Successful Startup Founders? | minimaxir | Max Woolf's Blog - http://minimaxir.com/2013...
"This perpetuates misconceptions in the startup world that all or even a significant percentage of new companies use VC funding as a means to grow. 99% of successful companies historically have not used VC funding. http://hbr.org/2013/05/six-myt.... There is a reason why none of the 16 schools listed in your survey has ever been ranked #1 in entrepreneurship by US News during its 20 years of ranking undergraduate entrepreneurship programs." - durbin

Re: "Gangbang Interviews" and "Bikini Shots": Silicon Valley’s Brogrammer Problem - http://motherjones.com/node...
"I completely agree with your article about the frat boy environment in Silicon Valley and think we as a community need to take steps to change it. However, the reference to the question on Quora is out of context, that question is tongue in cheek and many of the answers are making fun of 'brogrammers'." - durbin
