I’m going to try to post something weekly about what I’ve been reading, just because I like to share and you know what they say, sharing is caring.
- You might have see my two entries on Medium about blockchain (generally on blockchain and then applications of blockchain to connect EHR systems). Back in February, McKinsey published a piece on applying the blockchain to public section data management. I think it is a really good read and recommend it to those looking for a good read.
- The New York Times published a story on how self-driving cars could really benefit those who can’t drive, especially the elderly who sometimes lose their licenses. This is one of the big benefits I really hadn’t considered and expands the market for who cars are for, which I think is pretty neat. Wish I had thought about this before publishing my story “Cars of the Future” on Medium, but that’s life.
- Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz handed the reins of Starbucks over to his successor and COO, Kevin Johnson. Should be interesting to see what kind of things change with Schultz taking a less active role.
- ESPN Magazine published a piece about a new addiction that is hitting locker rooms all around the NBA and it isn’t what you expect. My friends got a chuckle out of this story and I think you will too.
- Scientists from Harvard Medical School are having success with a drug that reserves aging in the DNA of mice. They’ve published their findings in the journal Science, but there is a more layman friendly story about this in Time Magazine.
