"Objectives and Key Results — the process by which leaders and their teams set ambitious, measurable goals each quarter — are a critical component of how Google’s leaders managed Google’s growth from day one."

From the article: "We were pretty confident that we'd find the perfect mix of individual traits and skills necessary for a stellar team -- take one Rhodes Scholar, two extroverts, one engineer who rocks at AngularJS, and a PhD. Voila. Dream team assembled, right? We were dead wrong. Who is on a team matters less than how the team members interact, structure their work, and view their contributions."

Top 5 factors?
- Psychological safety.
- Dependability
- Structure & clarity
- Meaning of work.
- Impact of work.

"For anyone to tell you that Mars will be there to back up humanity is like the captain of the Titanic telling you that the real party is happening later, on the lifeboats."

Guess why they call it a SnotBot? :)

From the abstract: "The biggest surprise of discovering the Higgs boson? That there were no surprises. Gian Giudice talks us through a problem in theoretical physics: what if the Higgs field exists in an ultra-dense state that could mean the collapse of all atomic matter?".

May be old news but only came across this recently. Enjoyable, short and light talk.

Fundamental breakthroughs like this one are rare enough that they're worth reading about, even if they are hard to understand. This one has implications for the foundations of quantum physics.

Its good to keep an eye out on the competition ;)

According to the article: "...the company is paving the way for Swift to run on all sorts of other machines, including computer servers loaded with Linux, smartphones based on Google’s Android mobile operating system, and tablets based on Microsoft’s Windows operating system."

And maybe eventually IoT?
