Surface Tech vs Deep Tech  [Wed, 21 Nov 2018 @ SG tix]
[From the write-up, edited] In the past few decades, a slew of internet-based applications have brought easy money to investors. Why invest in new, tough-to-commercialise technology, when you can invest in Angry Birds [or Tik Tok?], which might give you ten times the returns after just a couple of years? We need to go back to investing in the unimaginable, in people who are working on breakthroughs that hold the potential to change the future.



Pick of Events (W3-Nov-2018)
1. December is looking rather quiet as usual. 2. The first two events returned by the bot for 2019 are AutoBiz and StartMeUp. 3. Since yesterday, 8 Nov 2018, the static images of embedded YouTube videos at Calendata and elsewhere seem to have gained an unsightly border, hopefully to be resolved soon [update: fixed!]. Videos still play as per normal when clicked.
