The Non-Obvious Insights Show – Episode #218

It’s been a busy week with my last night’s inaugural edition of my new Non-Obvious Virtual Summit which focused on the Future of Learning (watch the replay here). And a double header today with a SXSW Session virtual keynote at Noon EST, followed by another episode of my new Non-Obvious Insights Show (video below). There are some good ones from the pizza shop owner who made money by ordering underpriced pizzas from his own restaurant through Doordash and the surprising truth about air pollution. Plus NASA issues rules for space ethics, and an addictive new website where you can use AI to invent words that don’t exist. Enjoy the stories, and just hit reply to let me know what you think of them!
