The morning read

Good morning!

Welcome to the innovations morning read, where we collect the stories we’re enjoying over breakfast or on the go:

Hospitals are wooing primary care physicians away from their private practices, encouraging them to join hospitals alongside specialists as salaried employees. (The Washington Post)

2) Why those “your speed” traffic signs actually work:

Feedback loops compel us to change our behavior, and makers of consumer products are taking advantage of that science. (Wired)

3) Create a start-up without going to jail:

You have a great idea for a start-up, and all of your friends say they’ll work with you on it for free. But don’t forget the legal issues. Here are some tips on how not to end up in jail before you reach your IPO. (VentureBeat)

4) IBM’s innovation VP: If you don’t fail, you won’t lead:

Smart Planet’s Andrew Nusca spoke with IBM fellow and vice president of innovation, Bernie Meyerson. (IBM is a sponsor for Smart Planet.)

5) The exploding, shrinking drone market:

Drones. They’re a growth industry, but in more ways than one. Enter the “microaviary,” where engineers are working on making drones smaller — much, much smaller. (The New York Times)
