Failing to have a mobile-ready site is just irresponsible business at this point.

Once you read about Code Halos, you realize how they're all around us and the opportunity to leverage them to do things better.  I never thought about bridges and maps as Halos.  Add information about weather the bridge is subject to and traffic patterns and you could predict where maintenance is needed before a failure.
I write and speak a great deal about digital transformation, however I don't think I have yet clearly defined it and its relevance to businesses. Let me step back and start by saying my working definition of digital transformation is the application of digital technologies in a manner that ...

Spotify is cool, but they need to work on their ads. I wouldn't care if they were relevant, but they're playing rap ads to someone listening to country... that's not gonna work.

I couldn't disagree with this more.  In fact, it shocked me that Harvard is even recommending this approach.  

Kids need to take responsibility for themselves, not rely on their parents forever!  Maybe that sounds old fashioned, but by most definitions I AM an early millennial.  I have a great relationship with my parents and they've supported me through my entire career.  I wouldn't be where I am without them.  But part of that was knowing when to step back and let me try on my own - even if it meant failing.  My wife is a high-school teacher and this interventionist approach is, in my opinion, far too common for the students' good.  Scary if the workplace is headed this direction, too.

First time I spent the whole night in an airport. Denver ran out of flights, cars, and hotel rooms.
