Topic 1: Possible Topic (KP) - Apple hires Lamborghini's chief of chassis development for its Car team

Actual topic: Have we lost the distinction between industries? Can anyone get into the car business? After all, Amazon and Google want to get into it.

Recall: General Dynamics and General Electric were both into pretty much any industry where they could make money. Are the “giants” of today just the latest generation of mega conglomerates? And what does that mean for our economy going forward? How does the small business make the most of this?

Topic 2: Women are better than men when it comes to self-driving cars
Women better in driverless cars than men:

When the need arises to take control, women have faster reflexes, better reactions, and are better at keeping the vehicle under control. Future SD cars may need to consider operator sex when handing over control.

Topic 3: The Cloud Native Label 

Vendors keep misusing the “cloud native” label. Customers may not care.

We keep applying “cloud native” to things like Kubernetes that are expressly not native to the cloud. Does it matter?
