Gods On The Moon

Geometric Energy Corporation is "transforming civilization," according to its website. It's also going to the moon. And it's taking Dogecoin with it. That's not a joke. Or, actually, it is a joke, because it's undeniably funny. But according to a press release, it's as real as crypto isn't (get it?). "The DOGE-1 Mission to the Moon—the first-ever commercial lunar payload in history paid entirely with DOGE—will launch aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket," the company declared, in the course of

  1. And some people “decided” Christo was a great artist!

    I choose to live my life in a parallel universe to Elon Musk, who can afford a 100% loss on all of his crypto and write it off as a fun adventure…..That’s just how my brain works!

  2. In my 40 year career as a business prof, I wrote more than 60 case studies, most co-authored with my wife, also a prof. In the last ten years there have been so many great potential cases out there — Tesla, Auto industry bankruptcies and consolidations, the 2008 mess (I did serve as a reviewer for one truly amazing case on Goldman. Then, of course, the rise of Google and Amazon. The conundrum of the future for Intel. The Boeing MAX mess would make a great case. So many great cases could be added to the literature for future students. I ran out of the energy to do any more myself but I do still review 10 or 15 a year new ones for three publishers. Sadly, nobody I can see has tackled anything as big as Musk yet (many cases possible for Musk’s career).

    As an aside. One of the courses I taught for many years was an MBA financial strategy seminar. One day before class the WSJ had published a front page article on the management prowess of the mob. In my class that nite I mentioned the article and then talked about some of the financial challenges faced by organized crime. Took a cigarette break halfway through the 3 hour class and when I came back there was a very believable note tucked into my copy of the course text suggesting that the mob topic really ought not to come up again. In those days many rising young leaders of crime families were getting MBAs quietly to deal with exactly the sorts of complexities I was talking about and I decided that while apparently having one of these guys in my class was interesting, special training was probably a bad idea.

  3. H – I’m definitely not up on Snoop Dogg/hip hop history. Is there a good book or long form article on Suge Knight etc?

    1. “Someday, Musk too … will grow old”

      You sure? And if so, are you sure his kids will? Because I can promise you that at some point over the next 50 or so years, there will be some serious advances in our understanding of mortality and how to beat it. Obviously, no one will be completely invulnerable (you could always die in a plane crash or a tsunami, etc.) but death of “natural causes” isn’t a certainty. It’s a technical problem. One day, we’ll overcome it. The folks with the money to invest in figuring out how, will be the ones who don’t, in fact, “grow old.”

      1. This is a serious point. Even in the most pessimistic case where we don’t solve biological aging… imagine a hologram of Musk with a GPT3 powered database of all his past thoughts and writings just being handed the keys to TESLA and SPACEX. We have algo traders… why not algo CEO’s?

  4. well if Doge goes higher than $1… just remember it takes about $1 of electricity to mine a Dogecoin on a normal PC so at $10,000 we’re all printing presses. Could it happen? Maybe? But I think beyond $1 we all just start the presses and the value cools rapidly or stabilizes around $1.

    Unlike BTC which takes about $10k or electricity to mine and a ton of hard to get hardware upfront to start trying makes the price tag a little easier to understand. There is no such crazy barrier to Doge.

    I suppose that is an argument for Doge being the next stablecoin. No need to even have an account on an exchange, just mine it at home and send it through wallets. Unlike centralized stables like Tether.

  5. And so , even if man succeeds to “beat” mortality …. the beauty and precious-ness of life does not lie in “lifespan inflation”

    “In time” starring Justin Timberlake has given us one Hollywood perspective at Immortality

    May I recommend.. Tao Te Ching by Lao Tze for bedtime readings
