Although it is just early October, we only have three months left in 2016 and five months until Oscar Sunday. Venice, Telluride and Toronto have all unveiled many films, with the New York Film Festival going on right now. The biggest thing out of Venice and Telluride is the emergence of Damien Chazelle’s Demy-like musical La La Land wowing all who have seen it. Everything I have read so far expresses that it is not a full on knockout, but pretty damn close, and... Then there is the other big picture that premiered, in what I believe, along with Chazelle’s films, are the likely frontrunners for Best Picture, Kenneth Lonergan’s Manchester by the Sea, which supposedly stars a career-defining performance from... As of right now, these two films, if we go on what has been seen and discussed, are the two big frontrunners this early. I really thought the one film that slammed on to the scene, right when this conversation, or lack there of, was occurring during Oscar season was Nate Parker’s The Birth of Nation. The film was glowed upon immensely in Sundance, timing assisted it a bit, and although a lot of critics thought it was a good, not great film, it was this timing that skyrocketed is chances for 2017. Then the despicable rape accusations of... His most recent interview with “60 Minutes” did little to help his or the films chances. There are also films, such as Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight , which is received raves out of Telluride and Toronto, Jeff Nichols’ Loving , which garnered great reviews from Cannes, but not the raves Moonlight , has received and Denzel Washington’s... These films I hope to see shine at Oscar time, and not just because they are about African American culture in America, but because of the power of their storytelling and their overall importance to all of us. I hope we do not go down another road... Source: the film tank

The story of Compaq is well-known: Three ex-Texas Instruments managers founded Compaq with modest venture funding. Just four years later, Compaq was on the Fortune 500 list, and, two years after that, they had exceeded $1 billion in annual revenue. No company had ever achieved these milestones so rapidly. But few know the story behind the story. In 1982, when Compaq was founded, there was no software standardization, so every brand of personal computer required its own unique application software. Just eight years later, compatibility with the open PC standard had become ubiquitous, and it has continued to be for over two decades. This didn’t happen by accident. Cofounder and then CEO Rod Canion and his team made a series of risky and daring decisions—often facing criticism and incredulity—that allowed the open PC standard marketplace to thrive and the incredible benefits of open computing to be realized. A never-before-published insider account of Compaq’s extraordinary strategies and decisions, Open provides valuable lessons in leadership in times of crisis, management decision-making under the pressure of extraordinary growth, and the power of a unique, pervasive culture. Open tells the incredible story of Compaq’s meteoric rise from humble beginnings to become the PC industry leader in just over a decade. Along the way, Compaq helped change the face of computing while establishing the foundation for today’s world of tablets and smart phones.
