Friday, April 7 Brief: #startup, #tech, #augmentedreality
I camped out with a tech billionaire. The advice he gave me was priceless.
We sat around a small campfire, gazing up through the cold California air at a dazzling canopy of stars.My friends and I began talking with a member of the group. I didn’t know who he was, but he immediately struck me as interesting. @adam_naor
Why Uber Won’t Fire Its CEO
The rise of super-voting shares in Silicon Valley has given founders the ultimate job security.
As the calamities amass at Uber,many people — including me — have called for new leadership. Usually, the job of hiring and firing a CEO falls to a company’s board of directors.

How augmented reality will put people back to work
Augmented Reality has the potential to help transition displaced workers who have lost their jobs due to increasing automation. By providing a worker with just-in-time information, AR enables them to perform a variety of tasks that they may have no prior experience with. This allows workers to fluidly move from one type of job to another to maintain a stable income. @amittm
