Why Your Next Financial Advisor Should Be a Robot

When LinkedIn went public in 2011, Adam Nash remembers, Wall Street wealth managers swarmed the Silicon Valley campus, pitching their services to the 100 or so early employees like him who'd just become crazy rich. "But that did little to help the other 1,400 people seeking financial advice," says Nash, then LinkedIn's VP of product management. "I thought, It doesn't have to be that way." Now it's not—for those 1,400 and their first-, second-, and third-degree connections. see more

The 10 Best Shows to Watch with Twitter

I thought I could tweet #AHSFREAKSHOW without a glass of wine clutched in my hand, but I was wrong.— refinery29 (@Refinery29) October 30, 2014 Television is great, but, let's face it, in this era where we need to be entranced by multiple glowing screens at once, the boob tube just isn't enough anymore. We need another screen to keep our attention. But you can't read the New York Times or play Candy Crush while trying to watch your stories. What can you do on your phone, laptop, or tablet that will amplify your experience as well as slightly distract see more

Richard Saul Wurman, Founder of TED Talks: "I Have No Ambition"

Mr. Wurman, as the founder of the TED conferences, the predecessor of the TED Talks, do you ever get stage fright? I have absolutely no fear of being on stage or of being in front of people. In fact, it's my comfort zone. My stress levels—as measured by Carnegie Institute in a special straight jacket they have that measures your tension, sweat, muscle twitching, all those things—go down when I'm on stage talking. They were surprised. I thought it was delightful. But I do know that I go to a very comfortable place. It's a very relaxing time for me see more

Finally, a Fitness Tracker You Won't Be Embarrassed to Wear

We know, we know. Every day, it seems a new fitness tracker set to "revolutionize" the fitness industry magically appears on the market. But we think we may have found one that actually might make the bridge between sport and style. By designing something that looks closer to a sleek and sophisticated timepiece, the folks over at Withings Activité show that a fitness tracker can go with way more than stretchy bike shorts and even make a case for wearing it outside the gym. see more

The 6 Weirdest Rules in Professional Barbecue

No matter how tender and juicy your pork ribs are, you'll never win a world-class barbecue contest if you don't know the rules. Over the weekend, I spent a full day in a Tennessee classroom learning the dos and don'ts of professional 'cue competitions, as set down in the Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) regulation book—which is given to every certified judge. And on Saturday, I got the chance to apply my new skills, feasting on approximately 40 portions of chicken, pork, and beef at the Jack Daniel's World Invitational Barbeque Championship in Lynchburg (pop. 6,362). see more

The 5 Craziest Space Videos on NASA's Website

Last night, NASA's unmanned supply rocket to the International Space Station exploded just six seconds after launch. Prior to the 6:22pm ET launch, news outlets had been informing readers in the vicinity of the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia that they might be able to see the Antares rocket and Cygnus cargo spacecraft as they arced overhead. What we all saw, of course, turned out to be quite different: a huge flaming orange fireball ... which I think it's probably acceptable to now describe as "amazingly awesome," because no humans (or monkeys or dogs) turned into a fireball along with see more
