    Ah, you know it’s not their money, right?

    You saying it's not Mr Vanguard and Mrs Rock?
    I mean they just offer ETFs and indexes so it’s hardly them gaining, right?

    Vanguard yes, but Blackrock offer a lot more than just ETFs.
    Oh come on I’m not an idiot. I have met the various heads of the business af BlackRock.

    They’re not big winners in this.

    Why not list all the asset managers? The only reason BlackRock and vanguard are the biggest holders is because of their monster passive businesses.

    We gonna go mention the big Norwegian Sovereign Wealth Funds while we’re at it?
    Your post clearly implied that Blackrock only offer passives and ETFs. That is incorrect and I was picking you up on the incorrect statement. Nothing more.
    Don't get so defensive when something you post is picked up as not being clear or quite correct.

    They’re not the biggest shareholders via their active business though are they?

    Small shift so far which will either Peter out or be the change people thought couldn’t happen.

    Looks too complicated/fragmented for most Twitter users, from what I've read. I'd go for petering out.

    Yes, it's not the one.

    Yes, it's not the one.

    And unlike Zoom during lockdown, from that report, it looks like they will struggle to cope with the influx.

    From a tech point of view anything well architected should be pretty scalable.

    Scaling the human side of things (e.g. for content moderation) will be more challenging.

    'Rumour has it' (i.e. via Twitter) that he's trying to rehire some of the people he fired. Seems that Twitter can't be run by one person, even in Musk's new model.

    It's still a f***ing abomination. What's wrong with the word 'designed'?

    Can't say I like it either, but verbing has been going on for a long time, abetted by one Mr Shakespeare, no less. OED also lists 'architecture' as a verb, if you prefer that...

    Perhaps we should have a thread to celebrate people who dream, aspire and push humanity forward.

    Growth.

    I do not. What does that even mean? This is the trouble with just recording the rubbish that people commit to paper (or screen) and then claiming you are a definitive authority.

    The OED isn't a definitive authority, it is a descriptive (as opposed to prescriptive) dictionary. People use words other people don't care for. Some people still don't care for the word "ain't", but it's in dictionaries.

    It doesn't run on petrol, and thankfully we don't generally power cars with hydrogen fuelled rocket motors. So difficult to calculate a meaningful comparison.

    Yeah it's a fair point. I did see this though which sounds hopeful.


    Energy startup Green Hydrogen International (GHI) is planning to develop a new project based in South Texas.
    The hub plans to supply billionaire Elon Musk’s SpaceX with green hydrogen for the rocket company’s methane-powered rocket engines.
    Other uses for the abundant, colorless gas include adding it to ammonia for fertilizers and generating environmentally friendly jet fuels.
    Mars evangelist and SpaceX founder Elon Musk may soon have an easier time going green.

    Green Hydrogen International (GHI), a Texas-based energy startup, announced plans last week to develop a brand-new green hydrogen project—the world’s largest—in South Texas. GHI says some of the hydrogen from this project will be used to develop clean rocket fuel for Elon Musk’s aerospace company SpaceX.

    I still find it intriguing (I won't use that thread because I know I will be disparaged, which is fair) why Musk doesn't concentrate on what I think most people would agree is his main goal, of getting humanity into space? Why lose focus/jeopardise that, goodwill, contracts, grants, funding...

    Clearly, he's having to concentrate on twitter now.

    I guess you are who you are and he's doesn't have a choice, it's why he has achieve what he has. That's the decision his genetic makeup was going to make.

    George Best, could have been such a better player if he just concentrated on football...You are who you are.
