1) Autonomous is hard.— Gavin Baker (@GavinSBaker) June 26, 2020
“Most” investors will get their money back. “Some” are making a positive return = the last round had a greater than 1x liquidation preference that was senior in the pref stack.
Structure is dangerous to early VCs and employees.https://t.co/qXByEdpHM6
"MOST investors will get their money back and SOME will make a positive return" .... Zoox raised $955M which means employees likely get nothing. Always, always ask about liquidation preferences before joining a startup, especially ones with higher valuations. https://t.co/rmUpvF7BiT— Laszlo Bock (@LaszloBock) June 26, 2020
Not sure how ride-hailing fits with @Amazon.— Adam Nash (@adamnash) June 26, 2020
The idea of automated warehouses -> automated loading docks -> automated trucking -> automated last mile makes sense.
But it seems like automated loading dock & trucking would be the right next step. ?https://t.co/O8ttgj6rxa
Looks like this is official. Amazon is buying Zoox at a time where logistics companies continue to invest in areas focused on automizing delivery process. Zoox will continue to operate as a standalone company.— Sally Shin (@sallyshin) June 26, 2020
Jeff Bezos is also an investor in Uber... https://t.co/UicERtZUDT
As someone who has spent some time with the folks at Zoox and fancies himself an attentive Amazon watcher, I doubt this is about electric cars. It may however be about other forms of autonomy - delivery, in-warehouse automation - which Amazon has very public interests in. https://t.co/zVlow6iZ8t— Christopher Mims (@mims) June 26, 2020
I don't give a bleep if Trump wears a mask or not. If he wants to kill himself trying to get reelected, so be it.— Tomthunkit™ (@TomthunkitsMind) June 26, 2020

“Asked if President Obama showed leadership in the 2008/2009 bailout of the major auto companies, Trump meandered through an answer that left him without a position.”
Trump: “I think you would have wound up in the same place.”

Trump returns to Twitter to talk about Lordstown, but now he takes GM's side(!), bashing the UAW leader who had been fighting for years to protect Ohio jobs in Lordstown and passes blame onto union workers for GM's decision.
SCOOP: Trump admin tells Facebook, Google, Twitter and Snap to take action against posts calling for people to break curfew, topple statues or cause violence. Officials also exploring ways to use their legal authorities toward this end, source says. https://t.co/GS3N5bSWrp— Tony Romm (@TonyRomm) June 26, 2020

Afghanistan’s president has postponed a planned visit to Washington early next week where he was to discuss the U.S.-Taliban talks... The agreement “in principle” to begin a U.S. troop withdrawal only needed Trump’s approval.https://t.co/dAEPqyAnCS
