Hot List of Trends and Technologies (Innovation Leader) - Yes drones... but also words like transient identity and decentralized authentication!

(Book) Madison Avenue Manslaughter: An Inside View of Fee-Cutting Clients, Profithungry Owners and Declining Ad Agencies (Farmer) - Know your fees, resources, and workflow details... or die.
