The essay my publisher thought was too provocative to run
As part of the PR for my book, I’ve written a fair amount of little think pieces. One was a tongue-in-cheek look at what it takes to be an innovation guru, meant for my publishers blog. They, rather amusingly, turned it down, stating that it was too provocative and that they didn’t think their readers would “get it”. Well, as a subscriber to this newletter you now get first dibs to read it, as I will keep it as a hidden Medium-essay for a little. Find the essay here!
I do love a great story about a company going haywire, and the Theranos saga has been amazing for this. Just as I thought there was nothing juicy left after Bad Blood I find this glorious story about the last days, the founder’s denial, and the dog that was supposed to save it all.
