300 year plan. No wonder they fell for WeWork.


Adam Neumann: “It’s important that one day, maybe in 100 years, maybe in 300 years, a great-great-granddaughter of mine will walk into that room and say, ‘Hey, you don’t know me; I actually control the place. The way you’re acting is not how we built it,'” he said."

I don't think they fell for We Work, they are the same as We Work. They're doing exactly the same thing We Work did - talk so abstractly and grandly about their vision that people miss the fact that nothing actually works. We Work was a great tool for Softbank to push the exact same con as We Work. You can't say CPUs with more transistors than atoms on the earth and then actually invest in a semi-conductor company.
