A happy beginning of the Fall to all. We hope our US readers had a great Labor Day, the Germans a good Unification Day, and to our Muslim readers, a joyous Eid.

It was a pleasure meeting so many in Los Angeles at the Innovation Forum, and in New York at the C3 Summit.

We have also created an archive of the Journal, where you can see all previous issues. Enjoy!

We'd like to ask a favor of you. To build on the success of the Journal, could you forward this email to two or three colleagues?

We are interested in your comments and feedback. Please click here to do so.

Best regards,
