Here are my “business links” for the week. Make sure you scroll to the end for the two bonus references: 1) IDC Wearables Shipments Forecasts through 2020, and 2) the slide deck from the Microsoft Linkedin deal.
In this week’s “Science Links” post I share a number of articles covering topics ranging from a man with an artificial heart surviving for 555 days, to NASA’s move to create a fully electric x-plane, to giant holes produced by methane opening up in the Siberian permafrost, a clear sign of accelerating climate change. There are also several tech and industry news articles covering topics such as Microsoft’s foray into blockchain technology and Google’s latest plan to deliver gigabit broadband to consumers. Enjoy!
In my ”Weekly Science Links” post from earlier in the week, I shared some of my favorite sources of science news and analysis. Another tip is to subscribe to science news letters. I subscribe to a series of newsletters from “Seeking Alpha” which provide cutting edge (i.e. first thing in the morning daily; fresh) news and analysis on salient business topics. One of the newsletters covers technology (the “Eye on Tech” newsletter). Interestingly, this newsletter designed for Wall Street investors, is one of the best newsletters I have found to stay ahead of near term technology trends as they are deployed and brought to market (over the next few years).
This week’s (second) edition of Science Links features several articles from the Seeking Alpha “Eye on Tech” newsletter, which is authored by Eric Jhonsa. I would like to attributed the summaries to him as they are paraphrased from the newsletter. The graphics are also attributed to the newsletter and/or the linked articles (the original source material for Eric).
