Links and posts largely on what I find interesting or compelled to write about. Expect a lot of fintech, commerce and tech related posts, but I promise there will be hodgepodge of random tidbits as well!

This week we look at Alipay taking on Visa and Mastercard in Europe, upgrading your memory with the help of a chip implant (enter the Matrix anyone?), the job boom in the US that is overlooking women, a 100 year old’s 100 meter dash and more. Enjoy!
