Socrates in Silicon Valley

recode.net — If Socrates's gadfly was in Silicon Valley, it would have a lot of lazy horses to sting. The citizens of the technopolis appear oblivious to how the outside world's perception of them has changed, and radically so. Once universally revered as a hotbed of innovation, the world's premier technology hub is increasingly viewed with suspicion and resentment.

Silicon Valley now Unethical Valley

bdlive.co.za — IF SOCRATES' gadfly was in Silicon Valley, it would have a lot of lazy horses to sting. The citizens of the technopolis appear oblivious to how the outside world's perception of them has changed, and radically so. Once universally revered as a hotbed of innovation, the world's premier technology hub is increasingly viewed with suspicion and resentment.

The Ransom Dilemma

project-syndicate.org — The refusal to pay ransoms to terrorists can seem callous, but in truth it is the only ethical policy. Governments that pay ransoms to groups like the Islamic State are saving the lives of some of their citizens, but putting the remainder of their citizens - and others - at greater risk.

Why we shouldn’t always get along

bbc.com — Any minor disagreements were settled with laughs. For the most part we agreed about everything, from the British schooling system to the state of the European Union. As I looked around the table I thought "Why can't all gatherings be this easy and fun? If only every board meeting could be this jolly."

What the Sony hacking scandal means for boards

bbc.com — At every board meeting this month someone is bound to ask, either during the meeting or in a quiet aside, "Could we be the next Sony?" They'll be referring to the fact that Sony Pictures was recently hacked, with thousands of documents and files purloined and put into the public domain.

The most powerful person in the room

bbc.com — In reality, none of us gets to a position of success without a support system around us. Even the most successful people in the world, be they in business, politics, or the arts, don't get there alone.

Why early-stage investing works for people and technology

theguardian.com — Public and private investment in the real economy has been under attack since the 2008 financial crisis. In difficult economic times, it may seem logical to cut investments that yield results only in the long term, and thereby conserve money and resources to address short-term problems. In fact, cutting investment in our future - be it in people, the planet, political institutions, or business - is deeply irrational.

Why it’s so hard for us - and boards - to plan ahead

bbc.com — Of course, that's easier said than done. With the constant drumbeat and pressures of quarterly reporting, fighting daily fires and meeting short-term targets, it is hard for executives to think beyond the here-and-now. Thinking five years ahead is a real challenge in that context; 10 years feels like an eternity.
