The Paris climate talks are in progress, with President Obama and 150 other world leaders hashing out their commitments to a sustainable energy future. As this highest-of-high profile meeting occurs, speculations on implications to the global economy come thick and fast, to which I propose to add my two cents. It doesn’t matter what political lead...

Another blockbuster merger for the history books; Pfizer and Allergan will combine in the third largest takeover in history, a deal worth ~$160 billion. With combined annual revenue of $64 billion and market leading brands like Botox, Lyrica, and Viagara coming together under the same roof, this seems like a slam dunk. But my advice, to those of yo...

                Every other week, some major corporation or government agency seems to be getting hacked. We beat our brows over the loss of personal data, and wail about those dastardly hackers and how could they do such a thing?!; then go log onto Netflix with the password “password”. Because how could I possibly be expected to remember anything...

When confronted with marketing of any kind, I find myself becoming increasingly skeptical. The incentive for misrepresenting the truth (i.e. lying) is massive, and repercussions seemingly nonexistent. This is particularly true in scenarios where a product or service has a very pervasive reputation and the provider of that product or service begins...

Called peer-to-peer (P2P), the sharing economy, or collaborative consumption, this model allows people to sell their own goods and services through an exchange to other individuals, while the hosting company keeps a per...

                I’m a nuclear energy nerd. This has been established. So when Lockheed Martin announced a breakthrough in the design of a fusion reactor small enough to fit on the back of an 18-wheeler, I was the most excited person in my office. And amongst my friends. Pretty sure I was obnoxious about it.                 The people who develop a...

In the wake of the deadliest outbreak of Ebola in recorded human history, scientists and doctors are scrambling to bring effective quarantine measures into place. After the current wave of this pretty terrifying disease is quelled (assuming it is), our focus will shift from containment and mitigation to a long-term cure. There are several species w...

I tried to care about this new iPhone and Apple Watch. I really did. When the first iPod came out, I bought one. When the first all-in-one iMac came out, I bought one. When the first iPhone came out, I went out and, positively dizzy with excitement, I bought one. Now I’m looking at this iPhone 6, and... meh.                 Apple did amazing thing...

                Margins in the airline industry are horrible. Truly awful. And that’s not hyperbole; it’s a sober reflection on the facts. Depending on whom you ask airlines’ profit is between 1.0 and 2.6 percent, and that in an industry which relies on owning hundreds of airplanes, costing between $80 million and $390 million depending on size. Th...

                It seems that The Home Depot has fallen victim to the same kind of attack that had Target and eBay headlining the news earlier this year.

                I am a nuclear power enthusiast. In fact, if I ever sell an app to Facebook, or find out I’m the long-lost heir apparent of the King of Saudi Arabia, I’m almost certainly going to start a company that makes all kinds of nuclear reactors. Despite the scientific challenges and PR problems associated with nuclear power, I do believe it...

                Slow news days seem to be characterized by the blogosphere reaching into its bag of social-injustice-topics and gleefully ranting about whichever it blindly selects. On every fifth iteration or so of this charming cycle, in between politicians breaking the economy and the top ten blah-blah-blah, we get to hear about how the machines...

                Tesla has promised it will not enforce its mountain of electric car patents against anyone producing electric vehicles “in good faith”.
