From my point of view, this list is still lacking. I think it lacks something about Spirituality, Wisdom, emotional, hustle -- these are still not recognized.

And so. AWS Summit NY just came to a close. I didn't get a single shirt this time. Through the years swag has dwindled. I used to get a boatload of shirts in the past, bit not anymore. At least, there's still free booze. So all is good.

Hmm...I was just visiting MIT the other day, and they come up with this:

Horns are growing on young people's skulls. Phone use is to blame, research suggests.

Mobile technology has transformed the way we live - how we read, work, communicate, shop and date. But we already know this. What we have not yet grasped is the way the tiny machines in front of us are remolding our skeletons, possibly altering not just the behaviors we exhibit but the bodies we inhabit. New research in biomechanics suggests that young people are developing hornlike spikes at the back of their skulls - bone spurs caused by the forward tilt of the head, which shifts weight from the spine to the muscles at the back of the head, causing bone growth in the connecting tendons and ligaments. The weight transfer that causes the buildup can be compared to the way the skin thickens into a callus as a response to pressure or abrasion. The result is a hook or hornlike feature jutting out from the skull...
