Another hefty Skinny, so make sure you read all the way for some important messages and info!
For those interested in learning more about what Brooks was discussing during the 2020 Strategy rollout, you can order or download The Discipline of Market Leaders here. Also, here are three more important things you should know:
1. We're one step closer to bodily infestations of tiny robots. The good folks at Tufts and the University of Vermont channeled their inner Jurassic Park and created Xenobots using frog cells and robots. "The millimeter-wide blobs act like living, self-healing robots. They can walk, swim and work cooperatively. Refined, they could be used inside the human body to reprogram tumors, deliver drugs or scrape plaque out of arteries." Engadget 2. Google and Oracle are going to the Supreme Court. Oracle attempted to sue Google to the tune of $8.8 billion for allegedly stealing their code and using it in early versions of the Android. Google countered that Oracle's API was publicly available and not copyrighted. Now the highest court in the country is going to rule on it. "The conflict is not just about a snippet of code -- it’s about 2 different visions for the future of the internet. Team Google wants public code to be open source and available to everyone. Team Oracle wants public interfaces to be protected by copyright." The Hustle 3. Don't forget to donate!
