Imagined Futures | Lapham’s Quarterly
Robida gets the substance right and the surface wrong. Despite being mid-twentieth century, his characters are manifestly fin de siècle in appearance; the women are frilly art nouveau ladies, the men top-hat-wearing bearded gentlemen. He forgets that the very definition of fashion is that it changes.

Juice Machines and Red Flags - Bloomberg View
The world keeps infuriatingly intruding on Juicero's orderly software platform. You shouldn't just squeeze the bag of vegetables, because then how will it interact with the database? But you can, because you are a human, and it is a bag of vegetables.

Alan Kay's answer to What made Xerox PARC special? Who else today is like them? - Quora
There was a vision: “The destiny of computers is to become interactive intellectual amplifiers for everyone in the world pervasively networked worldwide”.

A few principles:

Visions not goals
Fund people not projects — the scientists find the problems not the funders. So, for many reasons, you have to have the best researchers.
Problem Finding — not just Problem Solving
Milestones not deadlines
It’s “baseball” not “golf” — batting .350 is very good in a high aspiration high risk area. Not getting a hit is not an error but the overhead for getting hits. (As in baseball, “error” is failing to pull off something that is technically feasible.)

Lyft’s New Feature Looks Suspiciously Like a Bus Route
If it walks like a bus, talks like a bus, and quacks like a bus … it’s probably a billion-dollar, venture-backed startup.
The number of Silicon Valley companies that have built empires off of “It’s Like ____, but for Millennials” business models is staggering. Regus is a 28-year-old multinational corporation that offers offices and shared workspaces around the globe, but WeWork has beer, so it’s worth $16 billion. Tinder is eHarmony with more sex and less awkward commercials. Everything old is new again once it lands in the App Store.

I worked for Jared Kushner. He’s the wrong businessman to reinvent government. - The Washington Post
If I were to assume any expertise I have is transitive to commercial real estate, I might argue that Kushner Co. overpaid for the building in the first place and overleveraged itself. But I also know what I don’t know, and I don’t make a living using vast amounts of debt to buy Class A office buildings in New York, so I will defer to people who do to opine. You could construe my evaluation as a reasonable observation by an outsider with a set of “fresh eyes,” but you’d be nuts to hand me a billion-dollar commercial real estate company because of it.
He probably would refer to it as a “lean” operation. I would say in his zeal to trim the fat, he began eliminating muscle and hacked into a few bones. I realize also, in retrospect, that he may never have intended to grow it or improve it.
I worry that this new office will be more of the same: a vanity project, one that exists primarily to put Kushner in the same room with people he admires whom he wouldn’t have had access to before.
