"A diplomatic overture extending an olive branch of friendship by exporting the means of production of one of its most valuable resources, rather than just the fruits of it." The leading cybersecurity college in Israel, HackerU, today formally lodged an official petition to the Australian National Government to accredit Australia’s first-ever Offensive 'Red Team' Cybersecurity Qualification and with it potentially comes to a new framework for international trade.

Any company that has R&D Labs where they develop new products has the time and space to experiment. And it's done in tech the world over. So why doesn't it happen in mainstream companies? Preeti Bajaj makes an excellent suggestion that companies should have an "Experimentation Budget". Invest a little, build an alpha and get it into users hands as quickly as possible and if it takes off, invest some more. If it doesn't, you haven't lost a lot of time or money. And to work out what ideas need solving, try listing them on @IdeasSpies for reaction. https://www.afr.com/work-and-careers/leaders/companies-need-an-experimental-budget-to-get-tech-savvy-20210225-p575ro
