A fast-moving stripe across the French countryside. —— @ashleygruber got the chance to spend a few minutes in a helicopter yesterday afternoon - she says it was amazing. The images seem to prove that. Follow her if you want to see even more of what we are up to at the Tour! #tdf

Tesla loved ideas too much to care about the ownership of them - just wanted more of them! (Maybe that’a what Edison took advantage of…)

Relevant to a good conversation I had today with a chronic wantrepreneur friend of mine.  Trying to explain that those who thrive in this economy realize that with such a public forum in today’s market, it is much better to share and collaborare ideas (i.e. kickstarter) than it is to hoard them and not complete them.
Tesla was in a disadvantageous point in history, because he did not have the privilege of the internet, time stamps, recorded correspondence, etc.  The use of patents/copyrighting was the biggest downfall of the inventor—it created a false scarcity of ideas, and also created a very secretive environment around the implementation of them… In doing so, innovation was stalled and it gave idea thieves more incentive to take the ideas from the original thinkers!  Imagine someone trying to do that today and being able to get away with it, if someone had been recording the process of his idea publicly for months/years… 
Anyways. Rambling. It’s late. Blah. I LOVE YOU TESLA.

Mark Gunter – An inside view of photography at the Tour de France

  1. Will Clarke riding for Drapac charges to the finish line of the 2014 Herald Sun Tour Prologue.

  2. The Passo di Stelvio , Stage 16 of the 2014 Giro once again gave viewers on TV some great footage… Not sure if all the riders felt the same way! Here Gianluca Brambilla adjusts his winter gloves as he reaches the top of the summit.

  3. Taken at the 2006 Tour of Qinghai Lake Merida rider Kui Song came unstuck while collecting supplies back at his team car. Needless to say he didn’t continue on, but he could consider himself lucky to only have a sore arm.
