The Kinetic Entrepreneur

In archi­tec­ture, the most overused word today seems to be “icon­ic”. In busi­ness, the word is “entre­pre­neur”. That’s not sim­ply because a Google search of the word yields 217 mil­lion results. I say that because I have heard the word simul­ta­ne­ous­ly applied to peo­ple such as Steve Jobs and Elon Musk, peo­ple who invest dol­lars in a pre-pack­aged “star­tup” (such as a new sand­wich shop) and peo­ple engaged in a lean star­tup inside Gen­er­al Elec­tric or some oth­er major, estab­lished cor­po­ra­tion.

New Next Now (October 2016)

A new break­through in micro­ro­bot­ics might just change the way we take our med­i­cine, reports Lyn­da Delacey (@LJDelacy) for @nwtls. Sci­en­tists at the Daegu Gyeong­buk Insti­tute of Sci­ence and Tech­nol­o­gy (DGIST) in South Korea have devel­oped micro­scop­ic robots that can enter the blood­stream and admin­is­ter med­i­ci­nes to pre­cise areas of the body with lit­tle or no side effects.

Keeping The Spirit of Peter Drucker Alive

I first encoun­tered Drucker’s think­ing in 1979 when I was an under­grad stu­dent in the US. “There is noth­ing so use­less,” Druck­er once said, “as doing effi­cient­ly that which should not be done at all.” That kind of think­ing res­onat­ed with me then, and now. It will nev­er go out of style.

Star Trek: Beyond The Final Frontier

Think­ing of the age-old debate about whether life imi­tates art or art imi­tates life, my sense is that, either way, both begin with human imag­i­na­tion. The bot­tom line is that once the human imag­i­na­tion is sum­moned, and direct­ed to a point some­where in the future, it changes out­comes. Is that not use­ful for lead­ers in the 21st cen­tu­ry?

Seven Great Quotes by Alvin Toffler

“The future arrives too soon and in the wrong order,” was one Tof­fler line that has stuck with me. And his sen­ti­ment that “our moral respon­si­bil­i­ty is not to stop the future, but to shape it… to chan­nel our des­tiny in humane direc­tions and to try to ease the trau­ma of tran­si­tion” was a call to action that still inspires me.
