Bill and Melinda Gates' 2014 Stanford Commencement Address - YouTube
min 17 in - about not having a better future for our kids. the thing is, the lowest hanging fruits have been eaten. now there only the hard things left to to, hard because they seem so remote from here, hard because they are worthwhile pursuing despite setbacks. renewable energy, curing diseases, sustainability in lots of quadrants - energy, food & water, environment, democracy & more or less striving for equality - social and income mobility. End: >> Luck, that could be me, empathy, leadership, ...

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. Fans don’t question it because they’re expecting their trusted resources to be handing them the best and most relevant music. The pool of people that control placement and flow (and ultimately the audiences) will get smaller and smaller. [...] + Follow-up

DLD NYC 14 - Winners/Losers in a Digital Age (Scott Galloway) - YouTube
Apple knows that competition is catching up faster and faster in terms of design and functionality etc etc. They hired 2 fashion people already (burberry and from LVHM). And to differentiate the brand further (price/status symbol - above middle class) and to keep selling it's Apple Products ... including wearables (Watch & Headphone) they hired those key people or b(r)ought them into the mothership. They could have long ago bought personal cloud storage companies and other stuff to add to its portfolio bla bla bla.... but that 'Software', you can't display - show off - walking around downtown manhatten. Wearables, phones, tablets - you can. ... Apple focuses on their core competencies - software like iTunes is only 2nd class, that is why it still doesn't stream. >> “They want Jimmy and they want Dre,” said the source. “He’s got fashion and culture completely locked up.” ( ) + !!! v=NP0P2BT0vTc !!!

Staying Ahead of the Curve — The Entrepreneur’s Journey — Medium
RE: @garyvee @stunwin How do you stay ahead of the game? How do you strategize with your team? Any particular methods you use? [...] RE: Staying Ahead of the Curve Innovation isn’t a tactic. It’s a religion. It’s not a method, it’s a mindset. Everybody’s looking for tactics, but it’s more about religion. So the reason my team and I stay ahead is that we’re built to stay ahead. We value the ROI that comes from the time we spend researching and pondering and debating and playing. [...] We’re in the business of always trying to put ourselves out of business. [...] But when it call comes down to it, nothing trumps execution. When Vine came out, I spent many hours between 11pm and 2am playing and understanding. At the end of the day, those hours were taken out of leisure time, sleep, and preparing for projects. I knew that and I still allocated that time. On paper, that seems very counter-intuitive, but I understand that value, and if you want to stay ahead, you should, too.

Generation Y und die Arbeitswelt: Die Andersmacher - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Generation Y, das sind doch diese Traumtänzer, die keine Lust auf Karriere haben und am liebsten eine Auszeit nach der anderen nehmen würden - stimmt's? Nö, stimmt nicht. Die wollen nur das, was man nicht von ihnen erwartet. Und interessieren sich kaum für Statussymbole. [...] "Typisch", sagen an dieser Stelle Soziologen, Personalchefs, Psychologen. Sie haben sich längst ein Bild von Menschen wie Nina gemacht, von diesen jungen Leuten, die derzeit auf dem Arbeitsmarkt ihr Glück suchen. Sie haben ihnen viele Namen verpasst: Digital Natives, Generation Praktikum, Millennials, Generation Y. Keine Altersklasse wird derzeit so fleißig erforscht wie Akademiker zwischen 25 und 35 Jahren. Und kaum einer Altersklasse werden so viele Etiketten angeheftet: Faulpelze, Weicheier, Traumtänzer, Dickköpfe, Selbstverwirklicher, Facebook-Junkies. Aber auch: Alleskönner, Multitasker, Weltverbesserer, Teamplayer.

What is (and isn’t) marketing? « RSA Comment
As the role of customer service has become more important for all businesses in trying to create competitive advantage, the ‘services marketing mix’ has found proponents in product marketing. I am a proponent of the ‘7Ps’ – product, place, people, processes, physical evidence, promotion and price – which provides a more complex framework for thinking about the marketing mix.

29C3 in Hamburg: Jacob Appelbaum spricht auf dem CCC-Kongress - SPIEGEL ONLINE
"Not my Department", dafür bin ich nicht zuständig, das Motto der Veranstaltung. Das Zitat wird in einem Lied dem Raketenbauer Wernher von Braun zugeschrieben. Zwar ist er dafür zuständig, dass die Raketen starten, aber wo sie wieder herunterkommen - das sei nicht sein Fachgebiet.

BBC News - Today - Does the LP have a future?
Last month for the first time in history, the number one album sold fewer than 10,000 copies.
Arts correspondent Colin Paterson went to the announcement of this year's 12-strong Mercury Prize shortlist to ask why anyone should care about what appears to be a dying format.
Simon Frith, who chairs the judges at the Mercury Music Prize, said there is "an interesting divergence between musicians continuing commitment to album making and audience reluctance to buy albums".
He explained that people listen to music in a way which is now "more mobile and more distracted" and single tracks therefore "make sense".
