How Google software won 2018
But it's not just what's outside that matters. When it comes to Google's products, software can not only make up for lackluster hardware, but even give the company's devices an edge over competing gadgets. This year, Google delivered thoughtful software and truly helpful AI that made some of its otherwise mediocre devices surprisingly compelling.

Childhood's End |
The genius — sometimes deliberate, sometimes accidental — of the enterprises now on such a steep ascent is that they have found their way through the looking-glass and emerged as something else. Their models are no longer models. The search engine is no longer a model of human knowledge, it is human knowledge. What began as a mapping of human meaning now defines human meaning, and has begun to control, rather than simply catalog or index, human thought. No one is at the controls. If enough drivers subscribe to a real-time map, traffic is controlled, with no central model except the traffic itself. The successful social network is no longer a model of the social graph, it is the social graph. This is why it is a winner-take-all game. Governments, with an allegiance to antiquated models and control systems, are being left behind.

A more intimate aesthetic of politics — on Insta » Nieman Journalism Lab
Though it’s too early to assess the implications of this approach, Ocasio-Cortez’s uses of Instagram seem to be less about humanizing an individual politician than about politicizing humans; that is, bringing more humans, particularly young humans, into the fold and representing electoral politics as something they have a genuine stake in. Ultimately, this may be a more meaningfully inclusive form of candor than what has come before.

Bussed Out: How America Moves Its Homeless — Information is Beautiful Awards
Each year, US cities give thousands of homeless people one-way bus tickets out of town. An 18-month nationwide investigation by the Guardian reveals, for the first time, what really happens at journey’s end. Through the combined use of (scrollytelling) data visualizations, video, photography, and of course, text, the article explains the impact of the homeless moving around the US. Both from the perspective of the homeless and the cities that are sending them away.

Does AI make strong tech companies stronger? — Benedict Evans
This means that the implementation of machine learning will be very widely distributed. Google will not ‘have all of the data’ - Google will have all of the Google data. Google will have more relevant search results, GE will have better engine telemetry and Vodafone will have better analysis of call patterns and network planning, and those are all different things built by different companies. Google gets better at being Google, but this does not mean it somehow gets good at anything else.

The Supply Chain Africa Needs — The Prepared
Supply chain problems in Africa are quite complex, with most of them stemming from the sheer size of the continent. Africa’s land mass is greater than the USA, Europe, and China combined. Within this huge space there are 54 unique markets, few of which provide scale or adequate distribution infrastructure. Further complicating matters, there are over 2,000 languages spoken and very diverse cultural dynamics from one market to the next.

Will Uber Survive the Next Decade?
Uber has succeeded in getting the business press to treat its popularity as the same as commercial success. A few tech reporters, like Eric Newcomer of Bloomberg, have politely pointed out that Uber’s results fall well short of other tech illuminati prior to going public. The pitch that dominance would produce profits is demonstrably false and Uber seems unable to come up with a new story. There’s every reason to think that investors, not local cab companies, will wind up being Uber’s biggest roadkill.

How Restaurants Got So Loud - The Atlantic
This trend is not limited to New York. According to Architectural Digest, mid-century modern and minimalism are both here to stay. That means sparse, modern decor; high, exposed ceilings; and almost no soft goods, such as curtains, upholstery, or carpets. These design features are a feast for the eyes, but a nightmare for the ears. No soft goods and tall ceilings mean nothing is absorbing sound energy, and a room full of hard surfaces serves as a big sonic mirror, reflecting sound around the room.

Higher Estate Taxes Can Prevent a Nation of Dynasties - Bloomberg
But inherited wealth means that wins and losses aren’t so temporary. Unlike income, wealth is easy to pass on to your descendants — you just sign it over in your will. Even if heirs make bad financial decisions and spend down their fortunes over time, inheritances can lead to inequality that persists for generations. And if heirs squirrel away the money in well-diversified portfolios of stocks and real estate, wealth inequality may actually be self-reinforcing.

Why Trump Worries Historians More Than Economists - Bloomberg
If you think about these questions enough, you can end up very nervous indeed. Historians have seen too many modest mistakes spiral out of control and turn into disasters.

Economists, in contrast, work more with general models than with concrete historical situations, and those models emphasize underlying structural forces. Economies have fairly set populations, birth rates, natural resources, capital stocks, savings rates, trading partners, and so on. So to an economist, the final outcomes are closer to necessary than contingent.

On magnets or underground: how does the Russian anonymous marketplace work? – Political Critique
The stores leave ‘ready made treasures,’ which are laid out in advance in the city. People pass by these readily available stashes every day without noticing them. Electrical transformers, garages, window sills, cemeteries, parks, trees, basements, public toilets. The drugs are hidden under slabs, attached to magnets, buried in the ground, covered with leaves or with stones. When you make a purchase you can usually chose the place to receive your goods.

Once the payment has been processed, the buyer receives a description of the ‘treasure’s’ location as well as GPS coordinates and photos.  The ‘ready made treasure’ option allows you to receive an order as quickly as possible – sometimes it can take less than an hour between payment and receiving the ‘treasure’. Only small amounts are sold this way – no more than a few grams, depending on the substance.

Another option is to have the order delivered via a dead drop. This is used for large volumes of drugs and wholesales. Within 48 hours after the transaction has been accepted, the dead drop is made for the buyer. Most often, these take place far away from residential areas. Encrypted messages are used in communications between the dealer and buyer.

Is philanthropy, by its very nature, a threat to today’s democracy?
Though we may laud wealthy individuals who give away their money for society’s benefit, Robert Reich shows how such generosity not only isn’t the unassailable good we think it to be but might also undermine democratic values and set back aspirations of justice. Big philanthropy is often an exercise of power, the conversion of private assets into public influence. And it is a form of power that is largely unaccountable, often perpetual, and lavishly tax-advantaged. The affluent—and their foundations—reap vast benefits even as they influence policy without accountability. And small philanthropy, or ordinary charitable giving, can be problematic as well. Charity, it turns out, does surprisingly little to provide for those in need and sometimes worsens inequality.

I’m not saying that no trendline has ever changed. Moore’s Law seems to be legitimately slowing down these days.

Any of these sorts of things could happen again, easily. I’m just saying that “Oh, that exponential trend can’t possibly continue” has a really bad track record.

US Has Some Of The Most Expensive Mobile Data Prices In The Developed World | Techdirt
While the U.S. wireless industry likes to talk a lot about how ultra-competitive it is, that's generally not the case. While there's more competition in wireless than in the fixed-line broadband sector (where there's virtually no competition at faster speeds due to upgrade-phobic telcos and cable's growing broadband monopoly), much of the competition in wireless tends to be theatrical in nature. Most of the major four carriers still usually outright refuse to compete on price, something you don't get to have a choice about in a truly competitive market.

A variety of factors are a drag on the growth of Japanese companies compared with international rivals.

Delay, Deny and Deflect: How Facebook’s Leaders Fought Through Crisis - The New York Times
When Facebook users learned last spring that the company had compromised their privacy in its rush to expand, allowing access to the personal information of tens of millions of people to a political data firm linked to President Trump, Facebook sought to deflect blame and mask the extent of the problem.

And when that failed — as the company’s stock price plummeted and it faced a consumer backlash — Facebook went on the attack.

While Mr. Zuckerberg has conducted a public apology tour in the last year, Ms. Sandberg has overseen an aggressive lobbying campaign to combat Facebook’s critics, shift public anger toward rival companies and ward off damaging regulation. Facebook employed a Republican opposition-research firm to discredit activist protesters, in part by linking them to the liberal financier George Soros. It also tapped its business relationships, lobbying a Jewish civil rights group to cast some criticism of the company as anti-Semitic.
