Rocking the boat

In case you’d forgotten about the Winklevoss twins, they’re back today with Bitcoin, Space and Beyond! about their joining Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic. Ben Williams at New York Magazine said, “So the point of private space travel and digital crypto-currencies is... international disaster relief.

Bloomberg’s Dina Bass writes that Microsoft’s Satya Nadella Manages Legacy of Ballmer-Board Split.

One of my heroes. How We Die, his great work, was a landmark.”
