The frustration of not being in the inner circle with DW is obvious.
It looks to me like they are aware that black swans can happen, and so are giving EEstor some attention. It seems absurd just on basis of 100X anyone else + no demo, they have somone with a tech argument it can't work - its actually the Gauss argument I think. Not 100% foolproof, but pretty near.
