Hotel Okura 

Therefore, I'm a little ashamed to say how much I loved the Hotel Okura; I've never stayed anywhere that was so wonderfully and unintrusively peaceful, a place where people paid so much attention to every detail.

You'd want peace and quiet at $800 a night. When I did the first read of this, I didn't put two and two together in regards to a Goldman Sachs executive flying first class to Japan and being put up in a hotel. Hotel Okura is not cheap, but it does look amazing and I will add it to my list of stays and try and get there one day.

George Soros Punks Social Media 

George Soros at Davos 2018:

"Mining and oil companies exploit the physical environment; social media companies exploit the social environment," he said. "The owners of the platform giants consider themselves the masters of the universe, but in fact they are slaves to preserving their dominant position … Davos is a good place to announce that their days are numbered."

Dave McClure Is Not A Radiohead Song 

Dave McClure has a seppuku moment on 500 Hats:

I made advances towards multiple women in work-related situations, where it was clearly inappropriate. I put people in compromising and inappropriate situations, and I selfishly took advantage of those situations where I should have known better. My behavior was inexcusable and wrong.

Symptomate Bot 

If you want to join the chatbot hype and position your product as an intelligent one, you need to implement at least very basic Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques. Take the time to come up with use cases and likely conversation scenarios. Try writing down intents the user may express when chatting. With an anticipated spectrum of intents in front of you, it will be easier to prepare to recognize them.

If only it were that easy.
