We are delighted to share these examples of cutting-edge thinking, from among the most-read pieces published in 2020.
In Six Things at the beginning of this year, I joked that it should be dubbed "Hindsight," because hindsight is 20/20. (Yes, I'm aware that I'm hardly the only one to come up with that little chuckle.) Now that 2020 -- the longest, strangest year of my life -- is finally headed into the books, we have some actual hindsight, and I'm delighted to share these examples of cutting-edge thinking, from among the most-read pieces that we published this year. 
I hope they continue to provide food for thought as we get set for a year in which we should be able to consolidate the hard-earned gains in innovation and efficiency that 2020 forced us to make -- and even accelerate them.
In the meantime, I wish you all a joyous (and safe) holiday season.
