BLOOMBERG: Welcome to Zuckerworld-FB big plans for Virtual Reality

The office building on Facebook Way is in the unfinished style that honors materials like plywood, concrete, and steel. The I-beams supporting its soaring walls still have the builders’ chalk placement instructions on them. It takes a business making billions of high-margin dollars to make plywood and concrete seem so appealing. The merely ordinary have to put up drywall.

Donald Trump took 12 questions during Reddit AMA, says NASA is “wonderful”

On Wednesday evening, Donald Trump, the Republican presidential candidate, took to Reddit for an “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) session.
Trump didn’t extensively answer many science and technology-related questions—responding to just 12 total questions during the hour—and ignored other crucial issues, such as intellectual property law and Edward Snowden. His answers were very short and sounded very similar to previous things he’s said on the campaign trail.

In response to “What role should NASA play in helping to Make America Great Again?” Trump answered: “Honestly I think NASA is wonderful! America has always led the world in space exploration.”

As The Atlantic reported, Trump broke with tradition a bit, choosing to plant his flag not in the "sub-reddit" /r/IAmA/, but rather /r/The_Donald/, where his supporters gather, giving him a home-field advantage.

The Donald ignored pressing tech questions on privacy, Snowden, and laser strikes.
