Chamath Palihapitiya impressed me last year with his straight-forward no bull approach. Plus he’s invested in companies like box.net and AirBnB so he has a good eye for great entrepreneurs.

But lately I’ve heard that his VC Fund, https://angel.co/the-social-capital-p…, has been investing in wearable computing, hardware, and contextual stuff, so I wanted to hear what he’s thinking. Boy did he lay a lot on the line here. Not only explained how he sees the world changing due to social technology (he was an executive at Facebook) but also laid out how sensors and wearable computers will change the world. Oh, and he takes some good swings at Silicon Valley, too.
