Some key quotes from #CodeCon this week [@Recode]:

1. On Tiktok:

$SNAP CEO: "The reason why this has been so challenging for companies to respond to in the United States but also around the world is the scale of TikTok's investment"

2. On privacy:

$AAPL CEO: "Steve really ingrained in the company in the early days the importance of privacy...We've never said digital advertising is a bad thing. What is not good is vacuuming up people's data when they're not doing so on an informed basis."
3. On macro:

$GOOG CEO: "The more we try to understand the macroeconomics, we feel very uncertain about it. The macroeconomic performance is correlated to ad spend, consumer spend and so on"

@elonmusk Numbskull … better than pedo.

So, we own a Tesla (Falcon Model X) and love it. Great car, great company & hard to overestimate the impact you, and your team, have had on the world. I've called you a genius before.

@elonmusk However, I don’t believe (and I don't think you do either) that Tesla is worth more than:

American Air

@elonmusk My understanding is you will need to exercise a substantial amount of options soon, which will trigger a taxable event. At #codecon you said your tax rate is 53%. I don’t see how that’s possible as a (recent) resident of Texas.

Elon Musk at #codecon, on the #Inspiration4 mission:

"It's got a bit more gravitas than simply tourism. It's not like going to Disneyland, it's more profound than that. Sometimes people use tourism in sort of a negative way, but ... they shared their experiences with the world."
@inspiration4x @SpaceX @elonmusk Musk: "I recommend watching the Netflix show 'Countdown.' It's awesome. I didn't have anything to do with it, and the production value on the Netflix Countdown documentary is amazing."
@inspiration4x @SpaceX @elonmusk Musk adds that "there was an element of tourism" to Inspiration4 but the "technology is expensive at first. You can't just try and develop brand new technology, it doesn't become instantly cheap and affordable."

When you all hear of ICE raids, remember this:

“I think that what the companies right now that are holding the power need to recognize is that the government could not do what it is doing now without them," - @jonathandryan in convo with @karaswisher…
@jonathandryan @karaswisher "@ErikaAndiola noted that the tech companies’ tools are helping a “machine of deportation.”

“If tech wants to walk hand in hand with our government in this experiment in tyranny,” @jonathandryan told the crowd, “then go for it.”

We’re live now at #CodeCon with @ezraklein speaking about what’s happening at the border and why tech has a responsibility to stop profiting from an inhuman and racist deportation machine.
@ezraklein @ErikaAndiola @jonathandryan "Seeking asylum is legal." - @ErikaAndiola

"The border has become a constitution free zone. As you approach the border the power of the Executive extends to war powers. This happened after 9/11 when they took immigration out of DOJ to DHS." - @jonathandryan

@ezraklein @ErikaAndiola @jonathandryan "There are kids right now in military camps. They are about to be denied permission to play soccer, to get educated. They are held in hieleras/ICE boxes. As a country we are using military tactics on families seeking asylum." - @ErikaAndiola

What would it look like for Amazon to be broken up? What’s next for AWS?

@awscloud CEO @ajassy joins @karaswisher in the red chair at #CodeCon. Stay tuned on Twitter for highlights. Subscribe to the Recode Decode podcast to hear the full interview:
.@awscloud CEO @ajassy on working with @JeffBezos: Jeff is so unusual and talented. He has unbelievably high standards.

In the early days he was involved in everything. You can’t be involved in every meeting and every decision as the company grows. #CodeCon
.@karaswisher The same group of people have been there. Is it culty?

@ajassy So many people have been there 21-22 years. They almost feel like closet founders. There is that type of ownership. We all have the chance to do something [monumental] in business. #CodeCon
