Holy Hogwarts! A Real Invisibility Cloak?

Hola Todos!

My two boys are heavy in Harry Potter at the moment and when I was scanning CNN.com the other day, I could not believe my eyes when I saw the headline.  A team of physicists at the University of Texas at Austin have developed a thin material called a “mantle cloak” capable of hiding an object wrapped in it, but only within a limited range of light waves.  The article suggests “It’s not Harry Potter’s invisibility cloak just yet, but scientists say it has a lot of potential.”

Just never know where the nuggets might come from…

Fortune Brainstorm Podcast: A New Source for Nuggets

Hola Todos!

With as much time as I spend in the car, I am happy to make the time productive via listening to various podcasts and learning new nuggets.  Fortune’s Brainstorm podcast (available on iTunes) is the newest podcast I’m following.  The first guest was Marc Andreessen while the second was none other then executive of the week Sheryl Sandberg.

This is something to check out today…

Best regards,

Leadership: Vision without Execution is….

Hola Todos!

I was listening to Steve Case on an older Stanford Entrepreneurial Thoughts Leaders podcast and Steve was describing his tenure with AOL.  While talking about the post-Time Warner-AOL time frame, Steve said an interesting quote that he attributed to Thomas Edison:

Vision, without execution is hallucination.”

While some may not agree that this is actually a Thomas Edison quote, I feel few would argue that quote is without merit.  The best laid plans without follow through will be utterly worthless.

Something to think about today…

Best regards,
