The Myth of Valley DoucheBaggery - John Battelle's Search Blog
But I think our industry culture is moving far faster than the writers at Silicon Valley might wish to believe. I think we’re seeing the rise of a new culture, one that rejects arrogance and the founder worship which breeds it. Inevitable outliers aside, the Valley and technology culture I experience every day in my work at NewCo is one of passion, sweat, earnestness, and good intentions. Sure, we all fuck up. And sure, the press (especially, not surprisingly, the press in New York) has a field day when someone does. But by and large, the teams making companies like Slack, LiveRamp, Medium, Earnest, MetroMile, Lyft, Okta, Pinterest, and hundreds more are damn fine people, and they are dedicating their lives to making something that creates positive change – a product or service that makes the world a better place (even if it’s in a small way). [...] When you’re facing existential threat, our tolerance for douchebaggery in the name of making more money at any cost, ....

Twitter works just fine – but for investors, anything except total market domination is a disaster | Comment is free | The Guardian
Nothing better illustrates capitalism’s addiction to illogic than the mismatch between Twitter’s workability and its unpopularity with Wall Street [...] Any company that cannot demonstrate a clear route to monopolising its space, monetising its users’ data on a vast scale, is to be discarded, targeted for acquisition, consigned to perpetual dowdiness. [...] When I’ve pointed to Wikipedia, Apache or Linux as harbingers of a new, non-market, open source economics, one of the stock responses is: “now show us something more spectacular.” The problem is, these modest, functional and free products are already in their own way spectacular. Wikipedia is the biggest information product in the world; Apache runs half the world’s web servers; and Linux is the system of choice for at least a third of all servers (the computers that run businesses) and 97% of the world’s supercomputers.

Alternatives Management: Vertrauen als Ressource für Unternehmen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Oft werben diejenigen am meisten darum, die unter Vertrauensverlust leiden. Denn tatsachlich sinkt das Vertrauen in die Wirtschaft und das Misstrauen steigt. Das ist das Ergebnis nahezu aller Studien zum Thema Verbrauchervertrauen // &! - Twitter just made it more difficult to hold politicians accountable // Same with the Conservative Party deleting all their speeches and documents after they won majority in election and partnered up with libdems - &! // Auch Geld funktioniert nur dank Vertrauen [...] Der Systemtheoretiker Niklas Luhmann beschrieb Vertrauen daher auch als "Mechanismus zur Reduktion sozialer Komplexität". Ständiges Misstrauen dagegen mache unser Zusammenleben deutlich schwieriger, sagt Martin Schweer. [...] Schnell zeigte sich: Hatte der eine das Geschäft fair und zum gegenseitigen Vorteil abgewickelt, erhöhte der andere in der nächsten Runde seinen Einsatz. // &! - Does honesty matter ...

You probably don't want to work for Amazon | The Verge
Amazon is known for its cutthroat efficiency and harsh tactics; it's what makes it possible to get a pack of toilet paper delivered to your door in less than 24 hours. But CEO Jeff Bezos' love of precision and data goes far beyond fulfilling orders and undercutting competitors' prices. It permeates every aspect of the workplace. [...] Working at the retail giant's Seattle offices is apparently nothing like showing up to work at an idyllic Silicon Valley campus. // &! &! - SVers take shots at the NYT's piece vs "_reflexive criticism_" by those who left AMZN. ( flashy offices *false sense of success* leased with money from Venture Capital, companies pushing PR on their A, B, C round like its a major milestone ). Keith Rabois "Awaiting the NYT expose on Kobe Bryant's success or Jordan's. Or any Olympic medalist." &!

Fairness: Warum der Mensch Gerechtigkeit will - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Das Gute in uns. Der Ökonom Ernst Fehr von der Universität Zürich führt seit einigen Jahren einen Kampf für die Anerkennung des Guten im Menschen. Vertrauen, Gerechtigkeitssinn und Mitgefühl sind in den Augen des Experimentalökonomen wichtige Bedingungen für Wohlstand und wirtschaftlichen Erfolg. So seien Menschen in Spielexperimenten bereit, eine Geldsumme mit einer anderen Person zu teilen, obwohl sie das eigentlich nicht machen müssten. Schwieriger allerdings werde es, wenn man eine Vierergruppe von Menschen anonym auffordert, Geld für eine Gemeinschaftsaufgabe zu geben - und ihnen die Möglichkeit lässt, nichts zu zahlen, aber trotzdem von dem Geld zu profitieren, das andere einzahlen. Ein Beispiel für ein solches Verhalten sind beispielsweise die Schwarzfahrer in der U-Bahn. So stellte Fehr fest: Schmarotzer gibt es leider immer. Vor allem, wenn die Experimente in Ländern gemacht werden, in denen Misswirtschaft und Korruption herrschen.
