Flüchtlingskrise: "Die Verteddybärisierung der Flüchtlinge" - Kolumne - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Auf Gefühlen kann man nichts bauen, mit Gefühlen kann man keine Zivilgesellschaft neu denken, durch Gefühle ändert sich nichts. // retweet and facebook like/share does not correlate with personal action! // long-lasting change comes from intrinsic motivation (self education leads to taking action one self). Grows only slowly and Vegan trend is example. Slowly but steadily. One by one. Tribe is growing. // Can't be done entirely w nanny state nor corporate PR. Modern life is about conformity. Easy. Bc life is already hard enough. Thus effort seems unsurmountable obstacle (obstacles put in your way of change, ie going vegan). Turnaround. Admitting one was wrong the whole time and being deceived. Comfortable w status quo, uncomfortable standing out. // &! youtu.be/eEDCC5dHw_Y - ask the right question (framing). // Book: Groundswell.

Here’s What Google’s Alphabet Businesses Might Look Like — the Qualcomm of Medical Tech | Re/code
Life Sciences, the two-year old health research group inside Google X, officially moved out of X and became its own standalone company under Alphabet. Andy Conrad, a cell biologist, who has led the division since 2013, will be its chief executive. On the same day, Life Sciences announced a new deal with DexCom, a San Diego, Calif. firm that builds continuous glucose monitors for diabetics. Conrad’s unit will create a cloud-based, miniaturized sensor — about the size of two pennies stacked atop one another, according to DexCom CEO Kevin Sayer. DexCom will then sell it. [ imagine it being connected to your smartphone and you quantifying your activity and meals ] [ 10% of NHS budget is spend on diabetes care, management, prevention, and probably include amputations/blindness because of unmanaged diabetes too. ]

Former Homeland Security head tells Pando why he doesn’t trust his fitness data to the cloud | PandoDaily
“One shouldn’t default to the position that connecting everything is perfect.” Chertoff tells Pando he also applies a kind of digital “Washington Post test” to his activities that require him to allow any of his data to be captured by a product or service. (That’s a reference to the litmus test among politicians of a certain vintage, weighing whether they’d be ok with the Washington Post finding out and printing a particular thing they’ve done or said.) All of us, Chertoff says, should treat our data online with the same degree of care with which we guard our reputation. [...] [ book “Terms of Service"] [...] It also wasn’t that long ago that Apple had a major security breach with iCloud. You can’t change your fingerprint. But the safest way to guard sensitive information is not to collect it in the first place. [ everything in the cloud is at risk. period, private data that can, if stole, put your well-being at risk, should not be there without merit/reason.]

Digital Dark Matter: The Unseen Forces That Influence Innovation | TechCrunch
Christian Cantrell wrote a piece about the unseen forces that influence innovation and how it is similar to dark matter. Despite all we think we know about the nature of the universe, the overwhelming majority of the cosmos lies outside our current powers of observation, yet it profoundly affects everything. The same goes with the forces that influence innovation. // [...] Despite all we think we know about the nature of the universe, the overwhelming majority of the cosmos lies outside our current powers of observation, yet it profoundly affects everything.
