APIs Are The New FTEs | TechCrunch
In The New World, FTEs (Full-Time Employees) Will Become APIs. Much has been made about how the dropping cost of website infrastructure has spurred a boom in startup formation, with Amazon Web Services held up as the prime example. The capital cost of servers has been eliminated, but even more important is the plummeting human cost. (<< Netflix has no own data center) [...] Companies and products like Heroku, Celery, RabbitMQ, Mandrill, Fastly, Chartio, Chargebee, Shipwire, Docker, Codeship, Rainforest QA, Replicated and Chartbeat have changed the nature of tech development. [...] Sure, there is a shortage of talent today, but developers are rapidly finding ways to put future developers out of jobs.

Digitale Revolution: Die Deutsche Wirtschaft ist zu zufrieden - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Skepsis ist angebracht. Die Digitalisierung ist dabei, das Leben umzuwälzen. Wie die Wirtschaft funktioniert, womit wir unseren Lebensunterhalt verdienen, wie wir zusammenleben, wie wir denken, lernen und fühlen - all das ist einem epochalen Wandel unterworfen. Wer die Folgen dieser Zeitenwende vor lauter Selbstzufriedenheit unterschätzt, lebt gefährlich. Eine Studie der Oxforder Forscher Carl Benedikt Frey und Michael Osborne kommt zu dem Ergebnis, dass durch die digitale Revolution 47 Prozent der heutigen US-Arbeitsplätze gefährdet sind; in anderen westlichen Ländern dürften die Dimensionen ähnlich sein. [...] Denn die Digitalisierung führt bei vielen Gütern zu einem rapiden Preisverfall. Zwischen 2010 und 2014 wurden Mobilcomputer in Deutschland um 40 Prozent billiger, IT-Dienstleistungen um zwölf Prozent, Mobiltelefonieren immerhin um neun Prozent, wie das Statistische Bundesamt vorrechnet.

How Uber’s Autonomous Cars Will Destroy 10 Million Jobs And Reshape The Economy by 2025 « CBS San Francisco
[The 2nd Industrial Revolution enabled by Moore's Law from 2000-2030/50: autonomous cars, software eats the world, marketplaces, share economy, automation, robotics, AI/augmented reality, local - just in time manufacturing via 3D printing, renewable energy and 100% recycling of everything.] The transition is already beginning to happen. Elon Musk, Tesla Motor’s CEO, says that their 2015 models will be able to self-drive 90 percent of the time.1 And the major automakers aren’t far behind – according to Bloomberg News, GM’s 2017 models will feature “technology that takes control of steering, acceleration and braking at highway speeds of 70 miles per hour or in stop-and-go congested traffic.”2 Both Google3 and Tesla4 predict that fully-autonomous cars – what Musk describes as “true autonomous driving where you could literally get in the car, go to sleep and wake up at your destination” – will be available to the public by 2020.

Joe Schoendorf im Interview: Wenn Roboter die Arbeitswelt übernehmen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
bit.ly/1uMWGuV -youtu.be/kwUHBqN-zPU - Schoendorf, Sie haben auf der DLD vergangene Woche einerseits die digitale Revolution gepriesen. Sie haben aber andererseits auch ein düsteres Szenario skizziert: Künftig würden Millionen Roboter die Arbeit erledigen, die zuvor von Menschenhand erledigt wurde. Viele würden also ihren Job verlieren, damit sinke auch die Kaufkraft. Sie haben von der Tech-Elite Lösungen für dieses Problem verlangt. Haben Sie selbst schon eine? Schoendorf: Im Moment gibt es nicht die Lösung. Lassen Sie mich das Szenario noch ein bisschen deutlicher machen. Das Median-Alter weltweit ist 27,5 Jahre. Ich mache mir weniger Sorgen um die, die jünger sind, denn sie sind im Informationsalter aufgewachsen. Für die ist es am wichtigsten, dass sie die beste Ausbildung erhalten. Sie werden ein anderes Leben führen als wir. Sie werden viele Jobs haben. Dass man lange bei einem Arbeitgeber bleibt, das wird sich ändern. + book end of competitive advantage - amzn.to/1wwh1i7

Müllers Memo: Frau Merkels Verständnis von Wirtschaft - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Angela Merkel lächelte leicht spöttisch. Bei der Vorstellung des Gutachtens der fünf Wirtschaftsweisen äußerte die Kanzlerin Zweifel daran, wie "ein Beschluss, der noch nicht in Kraft ist, jetzt schon eine konjunkturelle Dämpfung hervorrufen kann". Gemeint war der Mindestlohn, dessen anstehende Einführung der Sachverständigenrat als Wachstumskiller gebrandmarkt hatte. [...] Niemand, auch nicht die fünf Wirtschaftsweisen, erwartete damals einen durchschlagenden Erfolg der Agenda-2010-Reformen von Gerhard Schröder. Doch dann entwickelten die Hartz-Gesetze im Zusammenspiel mit dem Globalisierungsboom ab 2006 eine überraschende Sogwirkung. Insbesondere weil viele Menschen bereit waren, für ziemlich wenig Geld eine Beschäftigung anzunehmen. Heute bekommt fast ein Viertel der Beschäftigten in Deutschland eine Bezahlung, die Arbeitsmarktforscher als Niedriglöhne klassifizieren. &! http://www.spiegel.de/wirtschaft/soziales/rente-immer-mehr-aeltere-menschen-arbeiten-a-1003237.html

Technology To Automate A Third Of U.K. Jobs Over Next 20 Years, Says Deloitte | TechCrunch
This link between lower paid jobs and automation suggests technology risks fueling growing wealth inequalities — unless education and training can be successfully reconfigured to upskill populations with the digital, management and creative skills that are at reduced risk of automation. [...] In the high risk corner, the research lists jobs like office and admin support; sales and services; transportation; construction and extraction; and production. While jobs identified as low or no risk jobs include skilled management; financial services; computing, engineering and science; education; legal services; community services; the arts and media; and healthcare.

Holland: Programm macht aus junge Arbeitslosen Unternehmer - SPIEGEL ONLINE
An der Idee, Unternehmernachwuchs zu fördern, kann auch Wiemer Salverda zunächst nichts Schlechtes finden. Allerdings, so der Arbeitsmarktprofessor von der Universität Amsterdam, seien Programme wie "Jong & Baas" lediglich ein Tropfen auf den heißen Stein - erreichen sie doch nur einen sehr kleinen Kreis an jungen, meist hochqualifizierten Erwachsenen. "Ein Großteil der Jugendlichen, die mit Arbeitslosigkeit kämpfen, haben von solchen Programmen rein gar nichts", so Salverdas vernichtendes Urteil. [...] gerade für alle ohne Hochschulabschluss weiter verschlechtern werde: Von den rund einer Million potentielle Stellen für Geringqualifizierte wird laut van Dijk die Hälfte in den kommenden vier bis fünf Jahren wegfallen. Zum einen wegen der fortschreitenden Technologisierung, zum anderen, weil sich die Jobs derart spezialisieren werden, dass die Firmen sie künftig mit besser ausgebildeten Fachkräften besetzen.

Studie: Studenten sind unpolitisch und konsumorientiert - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Studenten sind politisch engagiert, eher links und tolerant? Nicht unbedingt, wie nach SPIEGEL-Informationen eine neue Regierungsstudie zeigt. Demnach wollen sie vor allem eines: "Sich schöne Dinge leisten können." [...] Walter Grünzweig, Professor für amerikanische Literatur und Kultur an der Technischen Universität Dortmund und Träger des Ars-Legendi-Preises für exzellente Lehre, macht für die Entwicklungen auch die Politik verantwortlich. Der einzige Zweck, den Hochschulen seit der Bologna-Reform noch zu erfüllen hätten, sei es, "Schmalspur-Absolventen" für den Arbeitsmarkt zu produzieren. "Wir erziehen eine unpolitische, antiintellektuelle Generation", warnt Grünzweig, der bei den aktuellen Studenten von einer Generation "unter extremem Druck" spricht. [Muendige Buerger? Ne ...]

American Schools Are Training Kids for a World That Doesn't Exist | WIRED
Our kids learn within a system of education devised for a world that increasingly does not exist. To become a chef, a lawyer, a philosopher or an engineer, has always been a matter of learning what these professionals do, how and why they do it, and some set of general facts that more or less describe our societies and our selves. We pass from kindergarten through twelfth grade, from high school to college, from college to graduate and professional schools, ending our education at some predetermined stage to become the chef, or the engineer, equipped with a fair understanding of what being a chef, or an engineer, actually is and will be for a long time. We “learn,” and after this we “do.” We go to school and then we go to work. This approach does not map very well to personal and professional success in America today. Learning and doing have become inseparable in the face of conditions that invite us to discover.

Google to Make Security Guards Employees, Rather Than Contractors - Digits - WSJ
In a move that could reverberate around Silicon Valley, Google plans to hire more than 200 security guards as its own employees, rather than through an outside contractor. The guards will be eligible for the same benefits as other Googlers, including health insurance, retirement benefits, on-site medical services, leave for new parents and more. The move comes amid rising concerns about income disparities in the San Francisco Bay Area. A think tank with ties to organized labor issued a report in August highlighting the differences in pay, benefits and working conditions between tech-company employees and service workers such as security guards, janitors and landscapers who primarily work for outside contractors. [...] The August think tank report found that the median hourly wage is $14 an hour for security guards in Santa Clara County – home to Google and scores of other tech companies. By contrast, the median wage for software developers is roughly $63 an hour.

Downward mobility: Lucy Mangan on the fall of the middle class - Telegraph
And all this is, according to many, only the beginning. The American economist Tyler Cowen recently set out his vision of the future in a book, Average Is Over. Cowen predicts that the middle class will disappear and we will split into the historically and globally more common and “natural” binary arrangement of haves and have-nots. [...] All the “low-hanging fruit”, as he puts it in a previous book, has been picked and consumed – that is, free land, world-changing inventions (electricity, telephones and cars) and educational reform that enabled a vast swath of hitherto unrealised potential among the population to be fulfilled. [...] According to Cowen, there will be a small elite – perhaps 10 to 15 per cent of the population – who will still be able to add value to the increasingly sophisticated work computers can do. People who can do the few remaining skilled jobs that can’t be outsourced to distant, cheaper foreign competitors among a globalised workforce. ...

What Happened to Motorola | Chicago magazine | September 2014
When healthy internal competition degenerated into damaging infighting. [...] 1984, the cellular business “exploded," “It was the glamour sector of the company, the industry, and the country.” But it also introduced a toxic element into Motorola’s corporate culture. Employees in the public safety division, who were chugging along selling to cops & firefighters, watched & seethed as the handset division lavished riches on its own. Handset people bought luxury cars the day they got their bonuses. [...] The era of “warring tribes,” as Motorolans refer to it, had begun. Screaming fights between sector heads rattled the corporate halls. CEOs William Weisz (1986–88) and then George Fisher (1988–93), committed to the strategy of stirring up internal competition, did little to stop them.

The rise of robot scheduling is a nightmare for low-wage workers - Quartz
The Times story points at a larger truth: Advances in management and workplace technology all have essentially one goal, to get more out of employees at lower cost. And in the quest for efficiency, companies often forget they’re dealing with people. + Kantor offers as an example the heartbreaking chronicle of a woman named Janette Navarro, and her efforts to raise her young son while working at Starbucks under this scheduling system. She often found out about her work hours with only a few days notice, requiring panicked adjustments to take care of her son and the family’s finances. She was sometimes asked to “clopen” her store (work till closing at 11pm and return at 4am to open it). The job required constant scrambling and caused tension with family members she frequently needed to beg for help to keep an eye on her son. ... She wasn’t alone.

Box’s updated S-1 contains onerous hidden penalties if the company is late to IPO | PandoDaily
As I’ve written time and again, Box’s destiny is hardly certain at this stage and drawing such rigid lines in the sand could easily come back to burn the company. Levie, it seems, had no other choice than to accept these onerous terms. It’s not altogether uncommon for late stage investors to request downside protection when a company’s performance is in question. Early stage investors do the same by way of liquidation preference and discounted, capped notes. But the very extent of TPG and Coatue’s protections suggest that Box was in a particularly bad negotiating position. With just eight months of runway left when filing its S-1 in March, this is indeed the case. [...] +++ insert price war from Google and Amazon.

Open your company's doors and let the machines in - the economy depends on it - Telegraph
The faster the mechanisation process, the more likely we are to see productivity – the amount of output each worker generates – starting to grow again and, with it, wages. A greater use of artificial intelligence throughout the economy will benefit, not hurt, the overall workforce. There are just two, crucial, caveats: it will be vital to help individuals displaced by the new technologies to find work in new areas. Better education and training will become even more vital. We also need policies to ensure that the UK, already a leading player in high value-added industries, continues to develop in these areas; this means making sure that Britain remains an open economy, that taxes are kept low, that higher education is allowed to thrive free of the dead hand of the state, and that infrastructure, including airport links, is up to scratch.

Bank of England’s 'slack' approach leaves economy at risk - Telegraph
There were 115,000 UK housing completions in 2013, almost a record peacetime low, compared with the 240,000 new homes needed each year just to meet the rise in household numbers hard-wired into our demography. This disgraceful shortage, and the government’s now long-past-its-sell-by-date Help-to-Buy scheme, is the reason prices are up 9.1pc across the UK over the last year and 17.1pc higher in London. And where house price inflation goes, economy-wide inflation eventually follows. While agreeing with Carney’s house-building analysis, I don’t agree the Bank can’t do more to rein in a market now in danger of spiralling out of control.
