The Inventor

Since her conviction was just announced thought I would show everyone this gem.

One blood test that will tell you if you have cancer. Does it sound too good to be true? Well, then you’re smarter than the investors of Theranos. Spearheaded by Elizabeth Holmes, Theranos was the new company in Silicon Valley that would change the medical diagnosis game. Due to horrifying optimism and misinformation, the truth behind the company was kept hidden. Based on the book, Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley you see a girl’s dream to change the world and how quickly it can fall apart. This is very well done and gives you the whole story behind the scandal. Hulu’s The Dropout comes out at the end of March with Amanda Seyfried playing Holmes.
