For sports fans, that was quite a run last week. The NHL crowned its champion (and the nation’s capital seemed like it was one massive street party for the weekend), the rest of the NBA conceded to the Golden State Warriors, and we witnessed another Triple Crown in horse racing. Now, well … there’s baseball.… Read More


Did you see Google’s demonstration of their new virtual assistant technology, Duplex, last week? If you did, like me, probably you were both amazed … and a little bit terrified of the implications.
