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.

Microsoft Will Never Give Up On Mobile | TechCrunch
It has other bullets left [shooting at mobile] in the chamber including Windows 10 and the cross-platform mobile apps too. Whatever happens, Microsoft can ultimately never walk away from mobile because giving up would essentially be ceding a massive portion of the future of computing, and it simply can’t afford to do that. [...] Microsoft wanted to go after phone market share in the long term, and selling Windows at its old price points would limit broader Windows 10 adoption, eroding at the company’s larger value proposition of having one platform across all your devices. Put another way, the company is foregoing some identifiable revenue to prop up Windows mobile.

The Mozilla Foundation's Mark Surman sits down with Steve Paikin to discuss applying open source principles to philanthropy and Mozilla's initiative to boost global web literacy. // Internet. You don't need permission. (book by alexis ohanian, without their permission) // is there more trolling, bullying and hate? or is it because it's so much easier to surface and less friction and non-facing confrontation. // Internet = more agency. not just consuming. linear programming. // digital literacy! resources for teachers! >> digital-literacy.org !? //

A Farewell To Jobs | TechCrunch
[the downside of making yourself hard to replace is, that its equally hard to move upwards the career ladder] the gig economy tends to reduce workers to fungible, replaceable cogs. Workers devalued in that way inevitably make less money and receive fewer benefits. When you can be more easily replaced, you become, pretty much by definition, less valuable; and technology is making the process of replacing one laborer with another increasingly frictionless. [...] in principle, both nurses and engineers are reasonably fungible. Short-term nursing contracts are plentiful, as are short-term engineering projects. One good iOS developer can easily replace another; good developers write code that’s easy for others to understand, maintain and expand. [...] an excess of supply relative to demand. [... thus the need for universal basic income / welfare state.] [...] spreading work more evenly among those who want it. [Borderless Flat World] - http://techcrunch.com/tag/peak-jobs/

http://youtu.be/5iW8GNL09E4?t=20m50s >> software becomes free, hardware cost lower and lower. "Software becomes harder to sell." Like Microsoft ... still businesses buy Windows and other Proprietary software. Microsoft can't compete with Apple on Mobile Software. Still Oracle (proprietary) still grows it's headline number. But now, less then half of it comes from selling new licences to businesses (38c/dollar, rest is revenue from support of existing licences). [X]aaS is an emerging business opportunity to sell SW that is fully or partially Open Source. Talk about portability; Google App Engine and its DB schema. // &!
