I was just a wide-eyed four-year-old full of excitement as my family and I prepared for game one of the World Series between my beloved Philadelphia Phillies and the Kansas City Royals. The Phillies won the Series and their first championship, and I’ve been thinking back on that memory as this year’s playoffs got underway.

Another historic event also took place 40 years ago tomorrow, though I wasn’t aware of it at the time.

About 100 miles north of me in New York City, Genentech was becoming the first biotechnology company to trade on a public stock exchange. Shares of the company, which traded under the symbol “GENE,” opened at $35. They quickly shot up to $88 before closing the wild

Can Wisdom, Technology And Collective Knowledge Build A Better Future?

We are a society of seven billion human beings all with the ability to almost instantly connect. In seconds, we can send a text message or start a video chat with a friend on the other side of the planet. We often take for granted how easy it is to hop on a plane and sip coffee with that same friend a day later.

We are forever interconnected, now more than ever before. Not long ago, it’d be hard to imagine a board meeting without every executive physically sitting in the room. Now, it’s common to hash out quarterly planning strategies or discuss budgets while leaders sit in comfortably in their offices (or homes) thousands of miles apart.

But the perks of an interconnected world is more than just about pleasure, convenience, or savings on travel expenses. According to Rajesh Kasturirangan—the cofounder and CEO of Socratus—bringing together collective

How 2020 Has Pushed Tech To Its Limits

CEO of The 20, an exclusive consortium for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) aimed at dominating and revolutionizing the IT industry.

The perfect storm of 2020 has pushed the tech industry into uncharted territory. It’s one thing to ask, “What would happen if everyone started using my product?” It’s something entirely different when they actually do, though.

The world’s sudden shift to work from home has affected almost every aspect of the tech industry. Businesses need to account for security, scalability and ease of use more than they ever have for this transition. Technology has gone from vitally important to just plain vital.

Scalability

One of the most obvious issues when work from home started was how hard it pushed scalability questions. Your office server was theoretically fine, but now it needs to manage a heavier load than it ever has. Video and phone systems have been taxed as

Zeiss ZX1 Camera
  • Zeiss’ ZX1 Android camera is now available on pre-order.
  • It was first announced in 2018.
  • The digital camera runs a custom version of Android.

We’ve seen Android phones cough up multiple camera systems for years now. What we haven’t seen in a while is a camera that runs Android. It’s not a new concept. Light’s 16-lens L16 camera was perhaps the last major Android-based camera to launch in 2017. We’ve also seen other companies experiment with the concept resulting in cameras like the Samsung Galaxy Camera, Galaxy NX, Yongnuo YN450, and Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1. Now, Zeiss is launching one that costs a whopping $6,000.

The Zeiss ZX1 full-frame camera was first announced back in 2018 but is only now going on pre-order. It was spotted on B&H Photo by folks over at DP Review.

The compact camera is Zeiss’ first entry into the digital camera space and runs a

Smoke traveling from western wildfires spreads bad air quality across the US

Devastating wildfires across the Western United States has sent smoke traveling across the country and even into Europe. With that smoke comes bad air quality, not just for those near the fires, but for the entire continent.

Satelite images from NASA shows smoke thousands of miles from the fire. NASA says the smoke contains aerosols, a combination of particles which carry harmful things into the air and into your lungs. All the things that are burning, trees, grass, brush, homes, are turned into soot and absorbed by our lungs.

“This pollution, nobody knows how badly it will be affected but if we extrapolate from previous air quality it’s not good,” Dr. Malik Baz, the medical director at the Baz Allergy and Sius Center, said. “The long-term side effect, we’ll see many, many years down the line.”

Baz’s operates 13 locations in California, all of them are busy as Central California
