Video: Tesla and the nature of disruption

I came across this very interesting conversation between Ben Evans and Steven Sinofsky on Tesla and disruption. When we say Tesla is disrupting, what exactly is it disrupting? Also, who is Tesla truly competing against? Between the electric part and autonomous part, which one is bigger? If you are interested in Tesla, have a listen.

a16z recently started to release their podcast episodes on YouTube, which I truly really appreciate. I learned a lot from them and it serves as an inspiration with regards to B2B marketing/content marketing.

Video: 3.8 billion years worth of innovation

In this video clip, the speaker discussed some astonishing findings regarding innovations by Mother Nature. For the last millions of years, Mother Nature has perfected some innovations that could be the inspirations for our societies such as sharks’ skin, the outer layer of fruits or a certain kind of butterfly’s wings.

In addition to great and surprising facts, I found the clip inspiring. Our technological advancements should be sufficient for us to try to replicate innovations that have stood the test of millions of years. If we could get rid of chemicals used to dye our clothes or limit food waste, they would be fantastic achievements for our human race.
