E387: Chamath on why the government shutdown is basically meaningless



about this episode

Chamath Palihapitiya is a venture capitalist, owner of the Golden State Warriors, former Facebook exec, and is extremely outspoken on the future of tech. When he sat down with Jason at LAUNCH Mobile, he called Apple’s focus on hardware a “hamster wheel” and “crack” — once on the wheel/crack, the customer always wants more. He sees Google’s focus on huge projects with big potential social impact as the way forward, not least by getting Android OS in the hands of billions of customers worldwide. Plus, why Silicon Valley is the center of power in America and the government shutdown, like the government, is essentially irrelevant. Don’t miss this spirited conversation!
