'Something Is Wrong': Starbucks CEO Says Calls For National Job Creation Effort | Business Futures | Scoop.it
Not often does a billionaire chief executive of a prominent American brand assert that our system is effectively broken.

 

"Millions of Americans are out of work," Schultz declares in his letter. "Many more are working tirelessly yet still unable to adequately care for their families. Our veterans are not being welcomed home with the level of support they deserve. Meanwhile, in our nation’s capital, our elected leaders are continuing to put ideology over real solutions."

Entreprenuers With Choices - Forbes | Business Futures | Scoop.it

"So you’re in your twenties and you want to be an entrepreneur. A Mark Zuckerberg. A Steve Jobs. A Bill Gates. After all, you devoted four years studying for it, another five years (or longer!) paying back student loans.

Project Glass and the epic history of wearable computers

Project Glass and the epic history of wearable computers | Business Futures | Scoop.it

Paul Miller gives a great account of the history of wearable computers, and of his earlier excitement about the prospect of it becoming a reality.  So what does he think of Project Glass?
