Wow, they're starting to look alive.
Robotics company Boston Dynamics has a new four-legged addition to its family: a 160-lb quadruped named Spot—and dude is impressive. In a short video posted yesterday, the Google-owned company shows Spot gallivanting with a weird equestrian hop through office corridors, up concrete stairs, and along rocky hills with little trouble. Spot even keeps his balance after being kicked by one of its human overlords. You can almost hear the canine whimper...

I’ve been plugging away at tax and business law, but what am I asked to write a book chapter about, give an interview about, and explain to accounting professionals? Improv and its impact on my lawyer life. I think we have a pattern here, or a message…
