Which Productivity Puzzle? – William H. Janeway – Medium
"So it is now, just 50 years from the invention of the microprocessor, that the complex of digital technologies have matured to the point that — from the point of view of the user — ICT has begun to disappear, as electricity did for our grandparents."

Considering chance in quality and safety performance measures: an analysis of performance reports by boards in English NHS trusts | BMJ Quality & Safety
We hope that our study will provoke investigation of how charts are presented to decision makers (and whether or not the role of chance is depicted). Our focus on English hospitals may seem solipsist at first glance, since it is focused on but one issue in but one country. However, the results speak to broader issues of public engagement in science and statistics. The hospital board is one of many places where citizens and managers need to be numerate in order to take a view on issues that affect them.

Five Lessons from Scaling Pinterest – Greylock Perspectives
"Your job is not to build the features your users ask for, it’s to ask the right questions that help you find the scalable solution — the solution that the majority of users will do. In this case, instead of helping users re-arrange pins, we built a feature we called “personal search”. Now, a pinner can search across all their pins to find the pin they’re looking for. A lot more people will do a search than constantly re-arrange their pins."

How to change social norms? | From Poverty to Power
"A ‘power within’ analysis would look at the moments in people’s lives when norms are formed or reformed, and the crucibles that forge them. I suspect that that would lead us to give priority to 3 arenas in particular: the family, faith organizations, and early years education"

It’s Not Just Semantics: Managing Outcomes Vs. Outputs
"Outcomes are the benefit your customers receive from your stuff. This starts with truly understanding your customers’ needs—their challenges, issues, constraints, priorities—by walking in their shoes and in their neighborhoods, businesses, and cultures. See what’s inconvenient, taking a lot of time, money, and/or effort. Your customers are too busy to plan, shop for, and cook healthy meals. What if you made a healthy, reasonably priced, fast-cooking meal so a family could eat better? Create a solution that your customers can sustain, and you enable life-changing outcomes, big and small."

Learning and earning: Equipping people to stay ahead of technological change | The Economist
"Not everyone will successfully navigate the shifting jobs market. Those most at risk of technological disruption are men in blue-collar jobs, many of whom reject taking less “masculine” roles in fast-growing areas such as health care. But to keep the numbers of those left behind to a minimum, all adults must have access to flexible, affordable training. The 19th and 20th centuries saw stunning advances in education. That should be the scale of the ambition today."
