Researchers at Linköping University have created and connected synthetic organic neurons and synapses to those of a Venus fly trap plant and successfully triggered the plant to close its leaves.

Virgin Hyperloop has announced a pivot from focussing on passenger travel to concentrating on carrying freight. They say the change in direction was brought about because of global supply chain issues and COVID.

Tim Ferriss put together a great list of 30 thought-provoking quotes in a recent issue of his 5-Bullet Friday newsletter.
I particularly like the quote from Rosamund and Benjamin Zander:
"I will have to remember ‘I am here today to cross the swamp, not to fight all the alligators.'"
