93% Of All Jobs "Created" Since 2008 Were Added Through The Birth/Death Model | Zero Hedge
Here are the details of how over 90% of the jobs created in the past decade were nothing more than a "statistical" adjustment in some BLS model. [...] Furthermore, self-employed persons as a percentage of the working age population and the number of jobs created by establishments less than one year old are also declining. [...] the multi-decade slowdown in new business formation. Further supporting the Harvard study findings, a Brookings Institution paper called “Declining business dynamism in the United States: a look at states and metros” shows that business formations slowed down and business deaths accelerated after the crisis of 2008 (below to the right). (( THE LOW HANGING FRUITS OF INNOVATION HAVE BEEN PLUCKED! + ECON WINNER TAKES ALL = COMPETITION ON PRICE )) [...] The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) seems to be alone in its belief that the entrepreneurial environment in the US is improving. We believe that the BLS has been artificially inflating the monthly payroll numbers via the birth and death adjustment. This overstatement is not trivial in nature – the adjustment added 30% of all jobs reported since 2010.

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.

Five years, building a culture, and handing it off. - Laughing Meme
Nothing we know [ about X ] should be assumed to be true. // Technology is the product of the culture that builds it. // If you want to build for the long term, the only guarantee is change. Invest in your people and your ability to ask questions, not your current answers. Your current answers are wrong, or they will be soon. // Software development should be thought of as a cycle of continual learning and improvement rather a progression from start to finish, or a search for correctness. If you aren’t shipping, you aren’t learning. If it slows down shipping, it probably isn’t worth it. Maturity is knowing when to make the trade off and when not to. // You build a culture of learning by optimizing globally not locally. Your improvement, over time, as a team, with shared tools, practices and beliefs is more important than individual pockets of brilliance. And more satisfying.

SAP: Ehemaliger Mitarbeiter erhebt schwere Vorwürfe gegen SAP - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Hinter den Kulissen tobt um die Entwicklungsgeschichte des Erfolgsprodukts indes seit Jahren ein erbittert und mit harten Bandagen geführter Streit, der mittlerweile auch Gerichte und Behörden in Deutschland und den USA beschäftigt. Ausgerechnet ein Mitarbeiter der internen SAP-Revision, der mit einer Untersuchung ("Audit") über den Entwicklungsprozess von Hana befasst war, wirft dem Unternehmen vor, sich bei der Entwicklung eigener Produkte wie Hana am geistigen Eigentum von Wettbewerbern wie Oracle, IBM und Teradata bedient zu haben. Der bislang unbekannte Vorgang geht aus internen SAP-Dokumenten sowie Gerichtsunterlagen hervor, [...] Für SAP sind die Vorwürfe gefährlich, denn das Unternehmen ist einschlägig vorbelastet. In den vergangenen Jahren musste es Wettbewerbern wie Oracle Chart zeigen bereits hunderte Millionen Dollar an Schadensersatz überweisen. [...] [ $25m fuer sich zu fordern war dumm. Super naive.

Hey, Advertisers. It's Serena Time! - Bloomberg View
In sports marketing, no one ever got fired for hiring a cute blond female athlete. It is the default choice. This can be, let’s just say it, racist. It’s definitely lookist. But it’s mainly conservative. In advertising, in television, in movies, the tendency is to look backward. Hiring only people who fit past models of success may often not work, but it comes with fewer consequences when it fails than trying something new does. To get all Keynesian about it, “Worldly wisdom teaches that it is better for reputation to fail conventionally than to succeed unconventionally.” [ risking looking like a fool ... vs playing it safe. incrementalism a to b - vs - dreamer/imagination ---- Logic will get you from a to b.

We Can't Let John Deere Destroy the Very Idea of Ownership | WIRED
In a particularly spectacular display of corporate delusion, John Deere—the world’s largest agricultural machinery maker —told the Copyright Office that farmers don’t own their tractors. Because computer code snakes through the DNA of modern tractors, farmers receive “an implied license for the life of the vehicle to operate the vehicle.” [...] General Motors told the Copyright Office that proponents of copyright reform mistakenly “conflate ownership of a vehicle with ownership of the underlying computer software in a vehicle.” [...] GM went so far as to argue locking people out helps innovation. [...] Lawmakers in Minnesota and New York have introduced “Fair Repair” legislation that assert an owner’s right to repair electronic equipment they’ve purchased. They want equal access to repair information, replacement parts, and security updates. // via bit.ly/1UliHJK

Could We Make Even the Worst Jobs, Great Jobs? - YouTube
If you treat your workforce as a profit center, as opposed to a cost center, perhaps your company's bottom line will soar. Why? Because employees, treated really well, perform really well. Management professor Zeynep Ton examines how organizations can design and manage their operations in a way that satisfies employees, customers, and investors simultaneously. (Hint: Paying higher than the minimum wage is a great start toward better performance).

Bayern: McKinsey sieht bis zu 40 Prozent der Jobs bedroht - SPIEGEL ONLINE
40 Prozent der Jobs im Freistaat befinden sich demnach in einer "Gefährdungszone". Der Grund: Sie seien von den Folgen der Digitalisierung und weiteren Strukturbrüchen betroffen. Eine der Kernthesen der Untersuchung lautet, dass die klassischen volkswirtschaftlichen Parameter, in denen Bayern gut abschneidet (etwa Bruttoinlandsprodukt, Produktivität, Arbeitslosenquote), nur bedingt als Zukunftsindikatoren geeignet seien. Sie würden "lediglich den Erfolg der Vergangenheit bewerten", so McKinsey. In dem Bericht werden deshalb andere Kennzahlen herangezogen: Stabilität (u.a. Einkommensverteilung), Innovation (u.a. Bildungsqualität und Start-up-Quote), Diversität (Integrationsindex, Bildungsmobiliät), Internetzugang, Nachhaltigkeit (Gesundheits- und Vorsorgequalität, Ressourcenproduktivität). // Economic Indicators are about the past!

The Case For Intelligent Failure To Invent The Future | TechCrunch
The future will not be like the past. The future will be built by those who will take risks and action to invent the world they want. [...] Over the years, I have developed great skepticism toward so-called experts and pontificators who seem authoritative in forecasting and create an illusion of knowing based on very little actual expertise. [...] I have experienced the power of doers, the chaotic and naïve world of optimistic entrepreneurs who just try things, admit mistakes, fail, learn, iterate, try again and find solutions – often out of necessity. Accepting, even encouraging, the right kind of failure is the best way to discover the solution to our problems and close the resource gap. Learning by engaging, iterating and persisting, rather than pursuing academic studies or writing papers, seem to be the major drivers of change. [...] The biggest risk we can take is to not take any risks at all. [...] we need the impossible to bridge our resource gap.

YouTube Music’s Head Quits, a Setback to Paid Service - Digits - WSJ
LaRosa is the second person in charge of YouTube’s music service to leave over the past 12 months. The other, Nikhil Chandhok, left last fall according to his LinkedIn profile. Chandhok was a director in charge of music, paid subscriptions and live streaming, according to the profile. Both departures resulted in part from frustrations that YouTube has been unable to launch its music subscription service in the year-plus since the first version of it was developed, according to a person familiar the matter. Those delays have resulted from internal arguments about how the service should be designed, including what features YouTube should charge users for and how the service should be integrated with the rest of YouTube. [Is another testament that YT is 4 Larry Page only 2nd Class [no urgency]. GOOG wont be hurt by those incidents, but moral & motivation suffers.

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.” ( http://techcrunch.com/2014/05/22/apples-beats-deal-is-happening-and-its-a-dre-acquihire/ ) + !!! v=NP0P2BT0vTc !!!

Startups: Wagniskapital - Deutschland scheut das Risiko - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Manchmal rappt Horowitz seinen Rat an Jungunternehmer und formuliert seine Management-Tipps mit Hilfe von Songtexten bekannter HipHop-Künstler. Wenn Gründer mehr Mut beweisen sollen, bedient er sich etwa bei Ice Cube und rät: "If you are scared motherfucker, go to church." Die Lobby von Andreessen Horowitz in einem eleganten Flachbau am Rande von Menlo Park ist dekoriert mit Originalaufnahmen von Atombombentests. Das alles wirkt manchmal etwas brachial. Aber trifft man Horowitz in seinem Büro, erlebt man einen sehr freundlichen Mann in Pulli, Jeans und Turnschuhen, der während des ganzen Gesprächs nicht einmal die Stimme hebt. [...] Dann spricht er lange und ausführlich über Regulierung und Arbeitsmarktgesetze in Deutschland. Dass es drei Monate dauere, ein Unternehmen zu gründen. Dass, wenn es nicht gut läuft, kaum eine andere Möglichkeit bleibe, als "gleich ganz zuzumachen", weil nicht schnell und einfach Personal abgebaut werden könne.

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.

The answer to this quandry is “safe harbors”. I argue for them all over the place. In content licensing. In telecom policy. In banking policy.

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.

Forscher untersuchen Voraussetzungen für Wirtschaftswachstum - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Vielfalt bringt mehr Fortschritt als Spezialisierung. [...] Denn woher Wirtschaftswachstum wirklich kommt, ist bis heute eine der umstrittensten Fragen unter Volkswirten. Lange vertrauten Wissenschaftler auf das Modell des Ökonomen Robert Solow, der dafür 1987 den Wirtschaftsnobelpreis erhielt. Zwar identifiziert Solow Fortschritt als langfristig wichtigste Quelle für Wachstum - doch wie dieser Fortschritt entsteht, darüber schweigt sich sein Modell aus. Seitdem haben sich Generationen von Wirtschaftsforschern an diesem Rätsel abgearbeitet. [...] Der Physiker Luciano Pietronero von der Universität La Sapienzia in Rom sagt jenen Ländern eine rosige Zukunft voraus, deren Wirtschaft sich auf viele unterschiedliche Sektoren stützt und komplexe, weltweit gefragte Produkte herstellt. "Labil ist der Wohlstand hingegen überall dort, wo er an einigen wenigen Produkten hängt", so Pietronero - etwa am Öl in Saudi-Arabien.

Same with Nokia and their cell phone business.

Angela's idea was to mix cancer medicine in a polymer that would attach to nanoparticles -- nanoparticles that would then attach to cancer cells and show up on an MRI. so doctors could see exactly where the tumors are. Then she thought shat if you aimed an infrared light at the tumors to melt the polymer and release the medicine, thus killing the cancer cells while leaving healthy cells completely unharmed.

The Rise of the New Groupthink - NYTimes.com
Research strongly suggests that people are more creative when they enjoy privacy and freedom from interruption. And the most spectacularly creative people in many fields are often introverted, according to studies by the psychologists Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi and Gregory Feist. They’re extroverted enough to exchange and advance ideas, but see themselves as independent and individualistic.

One explanation for these findings is that introverts are comfortable working alone — and solitude is a catalyst to innovation. As the influential psychologist Hans Eysenck observed, introversion fosters creativity by “concentrating the mind on the tasks in hand, and preventing the dissipation of energy on social and sexual matters unrelated to work.”

“Most inventors and engineers I’ve met are like me ... they live in their heads. They’re almost like artists. In fact, the very best of them are artists. And artists work best alone ....

Could This Be The End Of Cancer? - The Daily Beast
“For the first time,” says Disis, who has a $7.9 million grant from the Pentagon to develop a preventive vaccine, “clinical trials [of cancer vaccines] are demonstrating anti-tumor efficacy in numbers of patients with cancer, not just one or two unique individuals.”

Harnessing the immune system is completely counter to how cancer is now treated, largely by chemotherapy and radiation. Both can weaken the immune system, which is why some alternative practitioners advise against them. Following that advice can be fatal. But the importance of the immune system in fighting cancer is getting new respect from the nation’s leading oncology researchers. It has also inspired a Hail Mary play from a leading advocacy group. Last year, the National Breast Cancer Coalition launched the Artemis Project with the audacious aim of eliminating breast cancer by Jan. 1, 2020.

Dont Bet Big. Little Bets Are The Ones That Turn Into Billion-Dollar Ideas
small bets are affordable and achievable ways to learn about problems and opportunities, while big bets are for capitalizing upon them.

Sarasvathy points to the value of what she calls “affordable losses.”  Seasoned entrepreneurs, she emphasizes, will tend to determine in advance what they are willing to lose, rather than calculating expected gains.  They don’t teach this in business school; just the opposite, in fact.  But the next new billion-dollar idea is virtually impossible to predict, even for a visionary like Mark Zuckerberg for much of Facebook’s early history.

Fixing the economy the scientific way - latimes.com
Take jobs first: This has been a theme hammered home by the National Academy of Sciences. In its two "Gathering Storm" reports released in recent years, the academy has argued strongly that our future prosperity depends on investments made now in research and innovation.
The basic premise rests on the work of Nobel Prize-winning economist Robert Solow, who documented that advances in technology and knowledge drove U.S. economic growth in the first half of the 20th century. If it was true then, it's even more so in today's information economy.

Unboxed - Company Innovators Ask - What Works? - NYTimes.com
BUSINESS is a field not of theory but of practice. The central intellectual inquiry of the science of management is simply this: What works?

So what does work in the innovation game? No single formula, to be sure. But some recent interviews with executives, consultants and academics can be distilled into three recommendations: think broadly, borrow from the entrepreneurial Silicon Valley model, and pay close attention to customers and to emerging user needs.

- Marching Into New Markets
- Customized Discounts
For innovation champions, titles matter far less than their independence, breadth of knowledge and corporate clout, experts say. “Whatever you call it, there is a real need for a senior-level executive to be able to reach across a company and beyond to tap ideas, skills and resources,”
“It is this systems integration aspect that is central to innovation as a field and a discipline.”

The Delicate Art of Unauthorized Innovation - Michael Schrage - Harvard Business Review
Is that bad? Yes. Innovative organizations need to be innovative about how they innovate. The innovation and entrepreneurship literature — popular and academic alike — overflows with stories detailing the importance of informal economies in enterprise development. But since too many C-level executives and not a few investors consider "informal" a euphemism for "inefficient," squeezing out perceived slack has become a managerial priority. The not-unreasonable view from the top is that it's smarter to make our formal processes better and more efficient than depend on informal initiatives we can't quite see or control.

Twitter, SXSW, and Building a 21st Century Business - Umair Haque - Harvard Business Review
Openness as a survival strategy. I asked Ev about why Twitter's been focused on openness, and his response was that it's a "survival strategy." New ideas, new concepts, new applications — all flow to open organizations. That's a great way to express the point that for next-gen organizations, openness is now table stakes: fail at it, and you're not even in the game.

Organizing for experimentation. "Why don't you guys have a business model?" That was the essence of my first question — and the response was about experimentation. Though many organizations want to experiment, they can't — because they're not built to. Ev gave a blow-by-blow description of how Twitter organizes for experimentation, by creating modular teams that rapidly iterate to solve tough problems. That's what 21st century organizations look like: networks, not pyramids.

Andreessen’s Advice To Old Media: “Burn The Boats”
Oh, and he points out, that the iPad will have a “fantastic browser.” No matter how many iPads the Apple sells, the Web will always be the bigger market. “There are 2 billion people on the Web,” he says. “The iPad will be a huge success if it sells 5 million units.”

As technology becomes ubiquitous, it goes mainstream.

Yes, there are still a lot of people and money in those boats—billions of dollars in revenue in some cases. “At risk is 80% of revenues and headcount,” Andreessen acknowledges, “but shift happens.” You’d have to be crazy to burn the boats. Crazy like Cortes.

If you use an old tool to tackle a problem you’ve got to be really smarter than the rest of the folks because everybody has this tool. If you are the first to look with something new it’s like starting a new world. You just look around and everything you see is going to be new.”

This approach is reflected in the company’s latest potentially game-changing gadget, the iPad tablet, unveiled last week. It may succeed or stumble but it clearly carries the taste and perspective of Mr. Jobs and seems stamped by the company’s earlier marketing motto: Think Different.

Apple represents the “auteur model of innovation,” observes John Kao, a consultant to corporations and governments on innovation. In the auteur model, he said, there is a tight connection between the personality of the project leader and what is created. Movies created by powerful directors, he says, are clear examples, from Alfred Hitchcock’s “Vertigo” to James Cameron’s “Avatar.”
