The hydrogen car I mentioned earlier costs $400K. The thought occurs to me: in today’s money, that’s about how much a decent car (Bugati etc) cost 100 years ago.

Seth Godin
Best Selling Author

Last year my State of the College address was 76 slides loaded with data. This year it was 14 cartoons that were substantially more memorable.

"There are only two daily newsletters that I look forward to opening and reading every time they show up to my inbox: Seth Godin's and gapingvoid."
