A Million Tesla ‘Robotaxis’ Would Cripple Urban Transport
However, Musk’s robotaxi proposal shows what the tech industry aspires to do if autonomy ever reaches a level where it can handle most driving situations, and it’s pretty clear it would be disastrous for cities. A million robotaxis within a year would cripple urban transport systems, but that doesn’t bother Musk because he refuses to accept cities have spatial constraints.

How the World’s Biggest Brewer Killed the Craft Beer Buzz
These problems are dogging the whole beer industry, but they’re particularly vexing for the world’s biggest brewery. Throw in the slowdown in the maturing craft market, and industry observers wonder how long ABI’s self-appointed role as the segment’s “beer positive” vanguard will last — and what consequences smaller brewers face once the salad days are truly gone.

Extreme Athleticism Is the New Midlife Crisis – Great Escape – Medium
For decades, the midlife crisis has been expressed in tired pop-culture tropes in which (usually) white men buy sports cars and carry on affairs with younger women in a doomed and desperate bid to feel young again. But increasingly, people are responding to the anxieties of middle age not by clinging to the last vestiges of expiring youth but to taking on challenges that seem to belong to the young alone: by pushing the limits of what they’re physically capable of through endurance athletics and extreme fitness. The focus is less on what happened before the crisis and more on what happens after. Call it the midlife correction.

Beware of Isle of Dogs: the Fussy Racism of Wes Anderson
Isle of Dogs is emblematic of every Wes Anderson movie save for Bottle Rocket, his debut film. Bottle Rocket stands out as different because Anderson worked closely with James L. Brooks on the screenplay. Brooks, for whatever his flaws as a filmmaker — and there are many — is known for his ability to articulate the foibles and quirky emotions of the human experience. Anderson shows no such capacity. He’s more interested in superficial glossy details than in exploring how people relate to each other.

The Hyperfragmentation of Retail and Why the Biggest Winners are Digital Ad Platforms, not…
I expect this proliferation of microbrands to continue, because it is easier than ever to start a boutique brand. But, mass distribution is still expensive, so the biggest winners will be those that can collect rent and tolls like Google, Facebook / Instagram, or those that can consolidate microbrands under an umbrella to leverage cross-brand marketing efficiencies. Continued fragmentation of brands will only make the discovery problems and the poor customer experience worse, leaving a massive opportunity to reimagine the retail experience on the demand side.

Why Decentralization Matters – Chris Dixon – Medium
The lesson is that when you compare centralized and decentralized systems you need to consider them dynamically, as processes, instead of statically, as rigid products. Centralized systems often start out fully baked, but only get better at the rate at which employees at the sponsoring company improve them. Decentralized systems start out half-baked but, under the right conditions, grow exponentially as they attract new contributors.

Something is wrong on the internet – James Bridle – Medium
A friend who works in digital video described to me what it would take to make something like this: a small studio of people (half a dozen, maybe more) making high volumes of low quality content to reap ad revenue by tripping certain requirements of the system (length in particular seems to be a factor). According to my friend, online kids’ content is one of the few alternative ways of making money from 3D animation because the aesthetic standards are lower and independent production can profit through scale. It uses existing and easily available content (such as character models and motion-capture libraries) and it can be repeated and revised endlessly and mostly meaninglessly because the algorithms don’t discriminate — and neither do the kids.

Cities are not the future – Sakunthala – Medium
One of the big trends of the last 10 years was the rise of cities — knowledge workers especially relocated to urban centers, and the sharing of ideas that came from that made cities much richer than they were before. It’s become conventional wisdom that the future contains more of the same. However, I’ve started to think this trend may have run it’s course, and may even be reversing.

Mastodon is big in Japan. The reason why is… uncomfortable
Our team at the MIT Media Lab — Chelsea Barabas, Neha Narula and myself — are releasing a new report today on distributed publishing, titled “Back to the Future: the Decentralized Web” We end up speculating that the main barriers to adoption of decentralized platforms aren’t technical, but around usability. Most distributed publishing tools are simply too complex for most users to adopt. Mastodon may have overcome that problem, borrowing design ideas from a successful commercial product. But the example of lolicon may challenge our theories in two directions. One, if you’re unable to share content on the sites you’re used to using — Twitter, in this case — you may be more willing to adopt a new tool, even if its interface is initially unfamiliar. Second, an additional barrier to adoption for decentralized publishing may be that its first large userbase is a population that cannot use centralized social networks. Any stigma associated with this community may make it harder for users with other interests to adopt these new tools.

So, about this Googler’s manifesto. – Yonatan Zunger – Medium
I’m writing this here, in this message, because I’m no longer at the company and can say this sort of thing openly. But I want to make it very clear: if you were in my reporting chain, all of part (3) would have been replaced with a short “this is not acceptable” and maybe that last paragraph above. You would have heard part (3) in a much smaller meeting, including you, me, your manager, your HRBP, and someone from legal. And it would have ended with you being escorted from the building by security and told that your personal items will be mailed to you. And the fact that you think this was “all in the name of open discussion,” and don’t realize any of these deeper consequences, makes this worse, not better.

Ten Myths About Machine Learning – Pedro Domingos – Medium
Machine learning used to take place behind the scenes: Amazon mined your clicks and purchases for recommendations, Google mined your searches for ad placement, and Facebook mined your social network to choose which posts to show you. But now machine learning is on the front pages of newspapers, and the subject of heated debate. Learning algorithms drive cars, translate speech, and win at Jeopardy! What can and can’t they do? Are they the beginning of the end of privacy, work, even the human race? This growing awareness is welcome, because machine learning is a major force shaping our future, and we need to come to grips with it. Unfortunately, several misconceptions have grown up around it, and dispelling them is the first step. Let’s take a quick tour of the main ones:

No, Mexico City is not “The New Berlin”: A response to Vice
To compare this reality to a city like Berlin, where most people have pensions, a good standard of living, quality state-run healthcare, and decent wages is the height of egregiousness. It makes you wonder exactly how tone-deaf the writers of pieces like this can be. Have they ever dared venture outside the Roma-Condesa bubble? How much do they even know about Mexico City? Why have so many of these articles been popping up in recent years? Is it just cluelessness that drives them, or is it part of some local government branding strategy akin to the “Mexican Moment” debacle of a few years back?
At best, these articles display a certain naïveté. At worst, they engage in outright erasure, where the parts of the city not inhabited by affluent, trendy (and yes, mostly White) foreigners are simply ignored. It’s a kind of metaphorical displacement akin to the very real displacement that occurs when this crowd moves into an area, gradually making it unaffordable for ordinary people. Intentionally or not, the idea of Mexico City as this “new Berlin” only helps to exacerbate the dynamics of exclusion that plague our city every single day.

“Inclusion” is not for outsiders – Fits and Starts – Medium
By celebrating the inclusion of insiders — people of different genders and races who have been pre-assimilated into Silicon Valley via Harvard or Georgetown or Stanford — the industry misdirects attention from the inclusion of actual outsiders. We don’t change much by publicizing that we have hired people that we would have hired anyway. Under the current philosophy the rich (and this includes culturally and educationally rich) only get richer. You’re a woman who went to Harvard, we have a job for you! You are an African American engineer from MIT, we have 6 competing offers! That’s not to say that these candidates aren’t fantastic, they are. It’s saying that we’re not looking past race and gender to other forms of socioeconomic mobility.

Outside of the research community, there’s little depth of understanding of these terms, or why for instance RL and DL are often totally unnecessary for X.

The key to the success of early post-PC products like the iPad is the fact that they were designed from the ground-up without the baggage of legacy PC-era software (Mac OS) or hardware (x86 CPU).

There’s one that specializes in smartwatches. There’s a mall that sells cellphones wholesale. There’s one just for surveillance cameras. And then there are the component markets. Need a chip?

The Third Transportation Revolution – Medium
Or look at San Francisco, where the historic Ferry Building was blocked for decades by a two-level freeway. Since locals couldn’t really get there, it became a rarely-visited office building. But when the road was damaged by an earthquake in 1989, the city saw an opportunity. Instead of rebuilding the space for cars, it tore down the highway and reimagined the area as a place where people could gather. Shops, restaurants, and cafes were built, and before long the Ferry Building became the focal point of the San Francisco waterfront. Every weekend, almost 25,000 people visit its farmers market and support local vendors. As a result, new neighborhoods emerged, and within five years, there was 51% more housing available in the surrounding area.

The Tyranny of Agile – Code for America Blog – Medium
Why do we experience any of these doctrines (agile, lean, six sigma, in house, outsourced) as tyranny? Well, in the current moment, in government largely, it’s been the tyranny of waterfall, not agile. Most government IT projects have been relentlessly shoehorned into waterfall project management nightmares for the past few decades. Agile has been the knight in shining armor who rode in and broke waterfall’s grip on procurement, the key to power. But can we solve all of government’s technology needs through agile development? When you consider that much of what ails government today is the use of custom development at high cost when a commodity product is readily and cheaply available, we must acknowledge that agile is one useful doctrine, not THE doctrine. We need a roundtable of knights, not one Sir Lancelot. (I don’t love this metaphor, but let’s just roll with it, okay?) The problem is that we don’t always know what fits where, and instead try to adopt methodologies across the board based on what’s worked for us most recently.

Use (and Misuse) of Business Case Studies — Learning By Shipping
In particular, learning through the presentation of business situations and discussion in order to uncover the many competing forces within a given decision is super helpful. The unique aspect of learning by the formal case method is captured in the discussion more than in the documented (and edited) history of a decision or any specific artifacts. Learning from anecdotes, wisdom of mentors, or stories collected in business books can be equally valuable so long as you approach them with some caution. All the approaches of learning from cases have some cautions worth considering.

Snapchat will be fine. — Medium
Due to its humble origins as an ephemeral sexting app, Snapchat is not built to cultivate an online social presence like Instagram. At its core, Snapchat was and will continue to be a messaging app. Your Snapchat followers are usually people you are comfortable directly messaging. This level of comfort makes you more likely to live share. The difference can most simply be observed through the default home screen for both apps. Snapchat’s home screen is a camera. It invites you to capture the world around you and share your life. Instagram’s home screen is a feed. It asks you to like other people’s photos.

1. Remove Color. Well ok, you can have one color, but use it extremely sparingly to indicate action. Everything else better be black and white. Let the content of your app bring the color.
2. Bigger, Bolder, Blacker Headlines. You see that headline there? Bump it up about 20 to 30 pixels and make it HEAVY.
3. Simple, Thin, Recognizable Icons. Your icons better be universal and no color allowed here either. And if you want bonus points order them left to right in this way: home, search, primary action, secondary action, profile.
4. Double, NO, Triple your White Space. Maybe even quadruple it. You really can’t go wrong here.
5. Make your App Icon Brighter. If you are fiending to design something with flash and color, make it the app icon. This is where you put your personality and brand. And make it stand out!

In the last five weeks I’ve travelled 7,000km overland through Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan’s GBAO region and China’s western provinces. After a year of working flat out the journey was part vacation, a desire to fill in few gaps of my knowledge of the region and a client assignment.
For those that don’t know, the Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Region (GBAO) is a remote, sparsely populated, mostly Pamiri, Kyrgyz-speaking region of Tajikistan. The home to the Pamir mountains, it has decent argument for calling itself the “the roof of the world”.
I thought about separating this list into tech & behaviour, but they’re way more interesting mixed together.

How VR Will Change Sports. And How It Won’t — Backchannel
Belch is in good company. Sports executives as of late have been showering VR with cash. Comcast (parent of Olympics broadcast rights holder NBC Sports) and Time Warner were among those investing $30.5 million in streaming startup Next VR last year. Disney, ESPN’s parent company, led a $65 million fundraising round for Jaunt, another VR company. (Full disclosure: I will be on contract to NBC Sports as a TV producer for the Rio Games.) It’s a fair amount of FOMO funding considering that the vast majority of sports fans don’t own headsets.
At least not yet. And the question is: will they ever? Some debate that VR is the digital equivalent of the second coming of Stephen Curry, more than justifying the huge investments being made to marry the technology to athletic competition. Others insist it’s all hype, destined to go the way of 3D glasses. Today, VR sets are still painfully dorky to wear. Even Belch is circumspect. “Everyone is so enamored with VR,” he said. “The idea that people could just sit on their couch and feel like they’re at the game, it’s just not the reality now. It’s not ready. It’s not good enough. It will get there, but people are really hoping for it. It’s a sexy notion.”
Virtual reality has an exciting future and oodles of room to grow. Its arrival is already conjuring anxiety, anticipation and motion sickness in the industry. But it’s not going to reinvent sports, nor should we expect it to. So why is the industry exhibiting such euphoric interest in VR?

Make the TV Commercials Stop — 500ish Words
Obviously, some of these “internet businesses” (which probably feels as silly to write as it is to read) are increasingly advertising on television. I saw a ton of ads for Google’s Android operating system during the Finals, for example. And even some startups are dabbling in this — gotta love those Slack ads, in particular. But it’s hard to see a world in which these guys ever advertise on television at the scale at which the current heavyweights are doing it. And this is problematic for television, as we currently know it, to say the least.²
Now, I’m not predicting the death of advertising, I just believe that it’s likely to morph faster than people realize. Google’s business is based on this. Facebook’s business is based on this in a slightly different way. And soon, it seems destined that Snapchat will have a huge business based on this. Because it’s the latter, probably more so than anyone else out there right now, except for maybe YouTube, that can bridge the gap from television advertising — again, long the greatest form of advertising — to something akin to it in the new way of the world.

Silicon Valley doesn’t care about black people — Medium
Tech companies are no stranger to using media, money, and smarts to raise the stakes on issues it cares about. If they really thought that hiring black people was in their best interest, they wouldn’t let them be murdered in the streets by police. Silicon Valley does not treat black people like people, it treats them like a statistic. Its funny (not really), because that’s usually how the rest of America treats black people too. Silicon Valley was, as far as I know, one of the first industries to treat LGBTQ individuals like people, and look how far we’ve come on that front.
The point is, if technology leaders want to solve their diversity problem, they have to prove that they understand our issues, struggles, and our fears. The overwhelming majority don’t, and they have research to do. They have to understand that promises of diverse workplaces aren’t enough for a community that’s been given nothing but promises for hundreds of years. Women and people of color take a risk every time they join a tech company with questionable diversity statistics. It’s time for tech companies to take risks too, by rejecting the people and practices that allow African-Americans to be routinely murdered by law enforcement for simply living.

The New Payola: Deals Landlords Cut with Internet Providers — Backchannel
This astounding, enormous, decentralized payola scheme affects millions of American lives. And these shenanigans will only stop when cities and national leaders require that every building have neutral fiber/wireless facilities that make it easy for residents to switch services when they want to. We’ve got to take landlords out of the equation — all they’re doing is looking for payments and deals (understandably: they’re addicted to the revenue stream they’ve been getting), and the giant telecom providers in our country are more than happy to pay up. The market is stuck. Residents have little idea these deals are happening. The current way of doing business is great for landlords and ISPs but destructive in every other way.

In Defense of the Digital Album — Medium
Aside from the exclusive tier of artist-celebrities, the economics of being a musician have changed drastically over the past decade. Given the increasingly imaginative revenue streams needed to cobble together a musical career, it’s no surprise bands are shaping their sound to fit their audience. The pace at which playlists feeds us new music creates a hunger for bands that can quickly respond to our demand.
So where does this leave the album? Singles have always driven the music industry’s progress, from 78s to 45s, cassingles to the present. But where the single is the purest representation of art for commerce, the album is a rare opportunity for musicians to commercialize art. The golden era of the album in the ’60s and ’70s found bands who’d made their bones in radio pop exploring the boundaries of their craft. The sonic palates that dictate Pet Sounds and Graceland extend past the confines of 3-minute marketable music.

“Medium’s team did everything”: How 5 publishers transitioned their sites to Medium » Nieman Journalism Lab
If you’re a huge website and you have a huge development team, I think Medium is a good place to copublish but not necessarily do a full migration. If you’re an independent, small or mid-sized publisher and you’re spending way more time and money on technical aspects than you want or need to, Medium allows a lot of autonomy and will do a lot of the heavy lifting for you. There’s a lot of value there for independent publishers.
