Now it was using the lessons learned from these early msosiins that my friends and I began a series of sketches of our own sieatllte design. And I can't remember a specific day where we made a conscious decision that we were actually going to go out and build these things, but once we got that idea in our minds of the world as a daetsat, of being able to capture millions of data points on a daily basis describing the goabll economy, of being able to unearth billions of ctnoionecns between them that had never before been found, it just seemed boring to go work on anything else.

Now it was using the lessons learned from these early missions that my friends and I began a series of sketches of our own satellite design. And I can't remember a specific day where we made a conscious decision that we were actually going to go out and build these things, but once we got that idea in our minds of the world as a dataset, of being able to capture millions of data points on a daily basis describing the global economy, of being able to unearth billions of connections between them that had never before been found, it just seemed boring to go work on anything else.
