*see below for answer & context

This month, it's more like What I've Been Watching.  
Below I have some YouTube clips of well known names in the tech world or tech investing world.  I think we've all heard enough on terms such as: inflation, stimulus, or supply-chain so I wanted to bring you something fresh.  Even though these clips are from well know figures in the tech industry, these recent interviews have much more substance than normal and are worth a listen.
One name might not be as common, however.  Bill Maris, former co-founder of Google Ventures has some interesting views on the future of tech and healthcare you might want to familiarize yourself with.
