- What's next in tech? Ingestibles and embeddables bring the human body and technology closer than ever.
- "There's never not a tech bubble," Swisher said. "There are a lot of funders in the market that have no business being in it."
- "If you're not paying attention to how we're going to be changing the ways we do financial transactions, you're not paying attention."
- Given that digitization is an ongoing trend, real estate agents should figure out how they fit into that equation.
