Amazon's HQ2: Deal or No Deal?
While Amazon was out hunting for a second (and third) Headquarter's location, every major city in the US was hunting for Amazon. In the end, it's a split decision, with 25,000 employees being sent to both NYC's Long Island City and Virginia's National Landing, sort of. But was it a good deal for Amazon and the cities selected? Or is there more to this story (and the looming protests) yet to play out? Plus our Fast Five: Blackberry targets AI-powered security; SpaceX launches hundreds of tiny satellites; Looking at a cyber-security moonshot to save critical infrastructure; VW plugs in its electric vehicle plans. Our Tech Bites Winner of the Week: Uber, and the missing $11b dollars. This episode features: Daniel Newman (@danielnewmanUV), Fred McClimans (@fredmcclimans), and Olivier Blanchard (@oablanchard).
