Buffett likes to note how Andy Gove (once chairman of Intel) would imagine he had just one bullet to kill a competitor with & then he would have to decide who to shoot. Buffett has commented that for many business Bezos, CEO Amazon, would be a good candidate.

Here Bezos gives a very interesting graduation address high lighting many things I didn't expect:

Bezos's Blue Origin performs high-altitude test of crew escape motor:

PR film of the event here:

(skip first 5 minutes of on-hold music and maybe next minute of Jeff's cheesy intro to Blue Origin)

Interesting how small it all looks & the relatively small number of folk involved.

There doesn't seem to be any reason why this can't be scaled to become something like as common as civil aviation is now.

Remarkably really how fast this stuff has come about.

It certainly feels 21st century to me, the sort of things that comic books have predicted would come in this century.
