It seems we are in a perpetual waiting game for the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) to become a reality. Despite this wait, if the IoT is realized in a way that all the electronic devices we use today—and maybe some that haven’t been invented yet— are be able to communicate in a vast network, it could enable an optimization of resources that will be such a game-changer that noted economic and social theorist, Jeremy Rikfin, has suggested that it will represent the next industrial revolution.

Our ocean remains the greatest mystery on planet Earth. The ocean takes up 70% of our blue planet, yet we’ve only explored 5% of it. The ocean suffers from many urgent grand challenges – we don’t know enough about the ocean, too much pollution is going in, and too many fish and other animals are coming out.
Welcome to 21st century America - where we have longer lives than ever before, and more hopes for healthy aging. We are, happily, the beneficiaries of medical and scientific breakthroughs that have given us life spans that not long ago would have been the stuff of science fiction.
Earlier this year in March, Samsung said that it wants to ditch the corporate bore and feel like a young and trendy startup again.

There’s a serious gap between corporations and startups. According to Alessandro Di Fiore with the Harvard Business Review, “It’s not just a problem at companies known for poor management. Even businesses that are well versed in the best management practices can, without realizing it, generate an environment hostile to innovation.”
Zowel fiscale overheden als ondernemingen worden steeds performanter, zonder te willen inboeten op kwaliteit. Dat kan alleen maar door te blijven investeren in nieuwe systemen en oplossingen, of nog: door innovatief te zijn.
Right now your company is very likely sitting on a corporate asset of immeasurable value. It’s more precious than all the equipment, machinery and buildings you own. It’s a tool so powerful it could reshape your company and perhaps even your entire industry.

One of the major paradoxes in healthcare is that, despite broad recognition that relentless cost, quality and equity pressures are dominant drivers for significant change there remains only slow progress towards real innovation in care delivery.
In our opinion, one of the biggest misconceptions in education is the idea that "the basics" must precede innovation. While foundational skills such as literacy and numeracy will always be necessary, there's no reason why we can't teach them alongside innovative practices.

Awe might seem like just another three-letter word, but it is so much more. A recent New York Times article detailed how humans can get goose bumps when we experience awe, that often-positive feeling of being in the presence of something vast that transcends our understanding of the world.
