True Detective Season 2 really was that bad. (Looks the entire series is finished.) https://t.co/ThbQJv0i8pKids, stay off of the drugs. #thisisbeyondlame https://t.co/FnDc8m64z1The idea 'AI' can be a single unified layer on the phone OS reminds me a little of this. We have silos for a reason https://t.co/ZH6YMj5sj7

Retweeted by LessienFor those enamored with “The Innovator’s Dilemma” philosophy, it’s worth reading Andy Grove’s “Only the Paranoid Survive.”Every company with moderately competent management fears being disrupted. It’s rare that companies are blindsided or asleep at the wheel. @matthewmspace @drbarnard Fall is tame by comparison to pre-WWDC.Every year at around this time, the doomsaying reaches a frenzy. Calm down…Amen. My liberal arts education was not job training. It taught me to think critically and problem solve creatively. https://t.co/TeHtTP6SEW
