The UK must invest in mental health help | Letters | Society | The Guardian
the cost of mental ill health in England has been estimated to be £105bn per year. Fortunately, a number of evidence-based psychological therapies exist and are effective. Investment in psychological therapies to date has been a success, but it is a success that could be multiplied. The improving access to psychological therapies programme is only funded to reach “at least 15%” of the people who need it, and retention and recovery rates could be improved. [...] &! Osborne said that the ILF was “such an important fund … that we will be able to include it in the budgets going forwards”. Reality is not living up to the rhetoric. [ 7-day NHS? ]

The Guardian view on fair play in politics: a Conservative coup | Editorial | Opinion | The Guardian
From trade union reform to parliamentary process, the Tories show a pattern of contempt for the protocols of democracy [...] Thanks to a crafty, albeit constitutionally permitted, parliamentary manoeuvre, a cut that will affect hundreds of thousands of disadvantaged young people went through without proper debate or vote on the floor of the Commons. David Cameron commands a slender majority, but it is enough to pass most of his legislative programme in a more transparent fashion. Only the most controversial elements risk obstruction, either through rebellion on the Tory benches in the lower house or rejection in the upper one. [...] That episode, like the vote on student grants, is consistent with a pattern displayed by this government of impatience with democratic norms, verging on contempt. One habit is bundling measures of primary importance up in secondary legislation. [...] lay the foundations for a long-term Conservative monopoly on government.

Spotify Shrinks Music Download Sales, Fights Piracy – Study | Re/code
Is Spotify shrinking the music business, by giving people a good reason not to buy music anymore? Or is Spotify helping the music business, by giving people a good reason not to steal music anymore? Yes! That’s the conclusion from a new study published by the National Bureau of Economic Research this month. [...] The nice thing about the study is that it manages to bolster both Spotify’s main argument to the music industry for the past few years — if you don’t let us distribute your music, and get some money for it, the pirates will do it and you’ll get none — and the music labels’ primary worry about streaming — there’s no way we’re going to sell enough subscriptions to replace albums and single-track sales!

YouTube turns ten today. But will it survive the next ten years without losing its soul? | PandoDaily
None of these competitors have the same online video cachet and entrenched community of viewers that YouTube has. But when consumer adoption and ad spending is on such a steep uptick in a particular space, it’s shocking how quickly a market lead can erode. Just ask Myspace. [...] “I don’t think they’re going to necessarily lose their partners because of that, but it brought into question the type of partner Youtube is. Initially, to a lot of creators, they felt they could live an entirely independent life through creative ambitions. they felt like YouTube was there to support [them], and now it seems like this is a real business thing, and now YouTube is getting a little greedier.” [...] it will remain an indispensable marketing tool.

3 biggest misconceptions about the music industry and Jay-Z’s Tidal (which is doomed anyway) | PandoDaily
But the reason most artists are not compensated properly for their work has been the same since the advent of recorded music: Record labels. According to a report from the audit firm Ernst & Young, record labels net 45.6 percent of the revenue created by streaming music. The supposedly evil, greedy platform itself — which in this particular study was limited to Spotify and Deezer — only takes home 20.8 percent. After 16.7 percent is taken out for taxes, that leaves 10 percent for songwriters and publishers, and 6.8 percent for artists. And even if Tidal makes users pay (upwards of $20 for the highest sound quality!) artists will still have the same shitty record deals and see the same shitty ratios they’ve had for decades. [...] Even as Spotify has grown its total user base, the number of paid subscribers has held steady at only 25 percent.

My Advice To Young People - The Awl
(( via http://pando.com/2015/02/12/how-silicon-valleys-counterculture-went-corporate-and-ruined-everything/ )) >> "And the new language that is so much about the money is attracting a certain different kind of personality types.” We’re seeing the same thing play out now in blogging — or to use its unfortunate modern moniker, “Internet content creation” — which has suddenly become massively lucrative. This week, the Awl’s Alex Balk, one of the earliest adopters of Writing Stuff On The Internet, immortalized this evolutionary cycle in a post called “My Advice To Young People.” He recommends that youngsters find a field (like blogging in the early 21st century) that nobody respects or cares about — that way, you can invent the rules and rituals to your liking. Just don’t be surprised when the same people who ridiculed you a decade earlier come in and ruin everything you helped build because they finally figured out how to make money off it."

Labels, not Spotify, are screwing over artists and breaking the music industry. Here’s how to fix it. | PandoDaily
[ Platform - everyone (middlemen, plural) is taking a cut. ] A new report from audit firm Ernst & Young and the French record label trade group SNEP reveals better estimates than we’ve ever seen on the payout distribution of music streaming services. And who do you suppose takes the biggest cut? You guessed it, labels. According to the report, labels net 45.6 percent of the streaming revenue created by Spotify and Deezer, the two platforms included in the study. The streaming platforms themselves — most of which have yet to achieve profitability despite fielding frequent attacks for their supposed greed — take home 20.8 percent. An additional 16.7 percent is paid in taxes before songwriters and performing artists finally see their shares — which amount to 10 percent and 6.8 percent, respectively.

Keep YouTube Weird: How YouTube lost its soul — and may lose the creators that built it | PandoDaily
[ Another lesson not to build your business (model/revenue) on other peoples platforms and silos. It's ok for content distribution and discovery. But nothing else. You will worry every day what the owner will do next to increase shareholder value and market position. Entrepreneurs/Businesses need to mitigate risk (<< Objective No. 2 at least), this includes not to rely on other peoples Platform/TOS/backs. As if FB and Twitter wasn't a lesson.] The terms of the new agreement, while logical from YouTube’s perspective, place huge restrictions on where and how a musician can host their music on both YouTube and other platforms. And the bullying hasn’t stopped. Keating wrote that, if she refused to sign the new YouTube music services agreement, her channel, which has over a half a million views and close to 5,000 followers, would be blocked from the monetization portions of the platform. [... Conclusion ...] Think of [YouTube] as that promotional tool but nothing else. &! bit.ly/1D8wTMI

[A] new paradigm for professional artistry. We’re entering a new era in history: the space between “starving artist” and “rich and famous” is beginning to collapse. YouTube has signed up over a million partners (people who agree to run ads over their videos to make money from their content). The “creative class” is no longer emerging: it’s here, now. We, the creative class, are finding ways to make a living making music, drawing webcomics, writing articles, coding games, recording podcasts. Most people don’t know our names or faces. We are not on magazine covers at the grocery store. We are not rich, and we are not famous. We are the mom and pop corner store version of “the dream.” If Lady Gaga is McDonald’s, we’re Betty’s Diner. And we’re open 24/7. We have not “made it.” We’re making it.

BBC News - Taylor Swift's record label rejects Spotify figures
Taylor Swift's record label has denied Spotify's claims that the singer was "on track" to make $6m (£3.8m) a year from the music streaming service. In fact, Swift earned $496,044 (£317,000) in the past 12 months for streams of her songs in the US, Big Machine CEO Scott Borchetta said. Borchetta told Time magazine his label had made more from video streaming site Vevo than from Spotify. Spotify hit back, saying Swift's global earnings were closer to $2m (£1.2m). [...] "I'm not willing to contribute my life's work to an experiment that I don't feel fairly compensates the writers, producers, artists, and creators of this music," she told Yahoo Music. "I just don't agree with perpetuating the perception that music has no value and should be free."

Why We Think Soundcloud Is Preparing For A Giant Data Mining Operation | Do Androids Dance
The sad fact is that this industry has nothing to do with art anymore. We’re living in a landscape where PR firms, booking agents, managers, labels, and websites are collaborating to convince fans that their product holds value, regardless of whether or not it’s good. Dozens of genres produced by hundreds of next-level artists are being systematically pushed to the side.

What makes art valuable? - BBC Documentary HD - YouTube
(1) auction price determined who owned it previously, who collected them [Out of Love], who will bid on it - back then an obscure painting, art, or whatever can raise hairs within a few years if it were (the piece) in the right hands of a lover, from the start. in the hands of a well known and respected collector or gallery or individual person. [mentality of the art director/collector] (2) it is perceived value, not material value. a paintings value can change magically by a revealing of it's true attribution - painter. or who collected - who collects those works of art. or even art advisors yes that is a job title - a person who keeps the name of the bidder anonymous. (3) art collection can be addictive, and it is the long-haul game. talking about 2-3-4-5 decades. (4) people who can afford these bids - want to surround themselves with equals among them. so to speak. masters of their craft. & eventually the acquisition of a status symbol or long-term investment for the family trust.

oftwominds-Charles Hugh Smith: The Changing Nature of Middle Class Work
The economy is changing in structural ways that affect not just the job market but the nature of work itself. If we ask, what is work?, the conventional answer is tasks that somebody will pay us to do. This is true, but it doesn't address why someone is willing to pay us. The answer is to create value. ... [ Skills, not Expertise. ] ...... As technology's ability to replace costly human labor moves from the factory floor to the service sector, the nature of middle class work is changing. [ IBM's company wide Pivot over +10 years from HW to Services and Software Company. With the accompanying downsizing. ] ... Jobs that can be learned in a few hours are prone to being replaced by machines. [...] The protected sectors beset by soaring costs (healthcare, higher education, major weaponry programs, finance, etc.) will undergo the creative destruction of technology-based productivity gains for the reason that they are already unaffordable, not just to households but to the nation.

Reddit Is Big, Growing, and (Maybe) Turning Ever-More Inward - Robinson Meyer - The Atlantic
via http://www.reddit.com/r/TheoryOfReddit/comments/1v4vik/reddit_is_big_growing_and_maybe_turning_evermore/ [...] This is an interesting article I found, and implies that reddit may be, rather than a "sharing site," more of "a kind of earnest Internet town hall." I personally like the idea, really. Whereas facebook is mindless "look at this!" reddit, for all of its flaws and circlejerks, does occasionally have really good discussion and debate that facebook and social media sites just, well, lack. I just thought that was interesting, I've never posted here before so hopefully this is enough elaboration and you find the article interesting. [....] Shareaholic’s statistics indicate a changing role for Reddit: The site is perhaps becoming more of an object of sustained attention, and less of a interesting-link clearinghouse. (Reddit darlings like image-sharing site Imgur, meanwhile, now boast their own communities—Imgur’s is now larger than Reddit.)
