Don’t worry about people stealing your ideas. If your ideas are any good, you’ll have to ram them down people’s throats.

I want to introduce you to the best technical magazine that you aren’t reading. Not gonna tell you the name yet, cause you’ll just click out. But the magazine I’m writing of has recently printed articles on:
So what magazine is it? IEEE Spectrum! I know, I know. Yeah…in one issue you can learn some dirt on DARPA AND how to build a reflow oven out of a toaster oven. But, I’m telling you, the majority of the articles you will be interested in. (I’m not an electrical or electronics engineer…but I love this mag) Better than American Scientific and Popular Science. And…you’ll learn about technology that you probably thought you had no prayer of understanding. I never thought I might be able to grasp optical cryptography, or enjoy doing so. They are that good…technological deep dives for the novice. How they do it remains a mystery to me, but the writing does just that. And…you can read it online if you like.
To get you started, here’s a link to Google’s Marissa Mayer…one of the first 20 employees, who now runs one of their hottest bunch of technologies…enjoy.
