comment What does “'Avoid plastics' in commencement speeches" mean?
There was a lot of money to be made in plastics in the 50's and 60's; lots of new miracle materials, lots of new uses that disrupted old markets: whatis.techtarget.com/definition/disruptive-technologyI just want to say two words to you. Just two words. Cloud Services.

comment Check the grammar for “returned back”
