The Friday List at #neato – 2015.06.05

A few interesting articles I’ve bumped into this week, curated from my Pocket and shared for your enjoyment. Some cool finds this week about the *giant* market for wearables in the enterprise, autonomous cars and the destruction of our car economy, Google I/O, and real-life drug fiction.

Augmate“Smart glasses begin to take hold in the enterprise”

My fascination with what wearables will do in the enterprise is increasing every day that I wear my Apple Watch to work. There are some cool contextual scenarios that can be improved by having a device as present as a Watch. I think that as the glasses form factor shrinks to something that IWs would wear (and not just folks in manufacturing), there will be all sorts of new productivity scenarios – my fav idea is what remote whiteboarding would look like.

“Autonomous cars will destroy millions of jobs and reshape the US economy by 2025”

Yes, they caught my eye with the title. But the article has some astonishing data points in it, like the average car owner only drives there car for 4% of the year. Talk about wasted capacity.

“Google I/O 2015 Recap”

I’m not sure if I’m going to switch to the new photos storage system just yet, but that announcement plus Android M made this a good set of releases from Google.

“The Untold Story of Silk Road, Part I”

Part of me wishes I had at least seen Silk Road live just once. Every time I read a story like this I can’t believe how big and significant Silk Road was without almost ever being known outside of those who used it.
