I visited Tesla's Fremont factory this week, and wrote up some notes on my visit.

I also started planning the sourcing trip to China that Zach and I are taking for The Public Radio. We'll be there 07.24 through 07.31, and will have time in Shenzhen, Dongguan, Hong Kong and (for like a night) Beijing. Holler if you have a recommendation that we definitely shouldn't miss!




  • An interesting study on the effect that Uber has on midtown Manhattan gridlock: "an Uber trip entailing 2.5 miles driven...is imposing an $18 'social delay cost' that easily exceeds the amount paid by the rider."
  • How to clean up space junk today: Send up one satellite, and it eats a smaller CubeSat like Pac-man.


Stuff that doesn't fit into my dumb/arbitrary categories.


China's stock markets are batshit crazy right now.

Love, Spencer.

ps - Thank you to everyone - especially my friends at Gin Lane, Undercurrent, Brilliant Bicycles and on twitter - who referred me to everything here.

We should be closer friends. Coffee's on me.
