      "For Oculus To Succeed, VR Needs To Succeed"

      VR hardware makers seem to know that, for now anyway, it's in their mutual interest not to tear each other down. "The attention Oculus brought to VR was great," says Richard Marks, who heads up VR efforts for Sony.

      Why Learning To Code Won't Save Your Job

      Looking for job security in the knowledge economy? Just learn to code. At least, that’s what we’ve been telling young professionals and mid-career workers alike who want to hack it in the modern workforce—in fact, it’s advice I’ve given myself.

      Why A Negative Work Culture Is Better Than No Culture At All

      Organizational culture is meant to be a set of values, mission, and goals that are unique to each company.

      Why Target Is Fast-Tracking Food Innovation

      Here's a dirty little secret about the food business: An apple you pick up at your local supermarket is, on average, 14 months old. By the time you sink your teeth into it, it has lost most of its nutritional value. The thing is, most consumers are not aware of this. "People think they're buying a healthy snack," says Greg Shewmaker, an entrepreneur-in-residence at Target who is helping the retail giant reposition itself amid quickly evolving consumer mores around healthy food.

We instinctually build comfort zones around ourselves and fiercely defend them, usually without even realizing it. That might be a shrewd survival tactic, but it's a recipe for inertia. In order to succeed, we need to continuously improve our skills, using what we already know in order to figure out things we don't.

      Whisper's Master Of Content Moderation Is A Machine

      When people are granted anonymity on the Internet, does that make them more likely to behave in a way that's sincere, constructive, and uplifting, or trollish, disgusting, or even dangerous? You could spend hours debating that question, but one thing is pretty clear: even if the nice anonymous people dramatically outnumber the sketchy ones, even a few troublemakers can ruin it for everybody. (Hey, that's often precisely what they're trying to do.)
