Yoox Net-a-Porter CEO: “We sit on a gold mine of data”
A smarter and more strategic approach to data has been fundamental. In 2017, YNAP opened a 70,000-square-foot innovation hub in London, where new chief data and analytics officer Alessia Kosagowsky, who came from Burberry, was tasked with making better use of the way the company collects, analyses and acts on data. She and her team are focused on integrating data into all levels of the business, enabling its systems and 5,300 employees to make better, faster decisions; to develop more personal, relevant experiences for shoppers; to retain customers and to grow the top line.

How ‘Fleabag’ Seduces Us, Then Accuses Us - The New York Times
What happens is this: The priest, played by Andrew Scott, catches the woman in the act of talking to the camera. He senses her attention drift. “Where’d you just go? he asks. “You just went somewhere.” Nowhere, she reassures him and covertly flashes us a look of panic. As the series unfolds, these moments accrue. The woman has a habit of annotating her life in caustic quips to the audience, like a steady stream of tweets, and the priest picks up on the way she slips out of the moment. “What is that?” he asks, as she evades one of his questions, looking at the camera to protest his probing. “That thing you’re doing? It’s like you disappear.”

Instagram Accounts Are Exploiting the Sudan Crisis - The Atlantic
In addition to misrepresenting their intentions, these accounts are sowing misinformation. A since-deleted post on @SudanMealsProject, copied and shared elsewhere, stated that “more than six million people need urgent food assistance”—but that figure refers to South Sudan, not Sudan. It also stated, “Near-famine conditions are predicted in four of Sudan’s states.” This also is true of only South Sudan, which has been a separate independent nation since 2011. “It’s difficult to argue that [these campaigns] are effectively raising awareness when they’re using facts and figures relating to an entirely different country,” said English.

DailyMail Admit To Losing Half Of Their Google Traffic After June 2019 Core Update
It is very rare for a publishing site that large to admit they were hit by a Google update - extremely rare to see a post about it in a public forum. But the transparency is clear and honest, which I do love. It launched in 2003, and according to Wikipedia it is/was "the most visited English-language newspaper website in the world, with over 11.34m visitors daily in August 2014." Heck, I even wrote how smart they were when they hid an easter egg in their robots.txt file to hire a savvy SEO for their publication.

The Future is Not What it Used to Be | Rhizome
Living in times of social change and political upheaval, and beset by terrible and terrifying anxieties, the people of Ancient Rome—both the Patricians and the Plebeians, the aristocrats and the ordinary citizens—would lift their heads to the sky in hope of clarity and reassurance. Watching the birds, observing how they turned and swooped in the sky, the small group of “Augurs” would read into their movements and song the will of the Gods, and their feelings towards recent political decisions, votes, or military actions. Contrary to popular belief, the Augurate were not prophetic; through the divination of signs that indicated the will of the Gods, the population would be soothed in their worries.

Mobile is not a neutral platform — Benedict Evans
For a decade or two, for most people 'the internet' meant a web browser, a mouse and a keyboard. There were a few things around the edges, like IM, Spotify, Skype or Steam (or, for some people, email), but for most people and for almost all activities, the web was the internet. The web was the platform, not the PC operating system - people created services for the web, far more than for Windows or MacOS.

How Apple’s deal with Amazon screwed over small recycling businesses - The Verge
Companies that want to sell Apple products through Amazon now have to meet one of two requirements. The first is to purchase at least $2.5 million worth of refurbished inventory every 90 days from Apple itself or through a retailer with more than $5 billion in annual sales, like a wireless carrier or big-box retailers like Target or Walmart. The second is to reach out directly to Apple to become an authorized reseller. Apple has yet to make its reseller requirements known to the public, but to become an Apple-authorized provider of repairs requires a physical retail space for customers to enter.

I charged $18,000 for a Static HTML Page
Not too long ago, I made a living working as a contractor where I would hop from project to project. Some were short term where I would work for a week and quickly deliver my service. Others lasted a couple months where I would make enough money to take some time off. I preferred the short ones because they allowed me to charge a much higher rate for a quick job. Not only I felt like my own boss, but I also felt like I didn't have to work too hard to make a decent living. My highest rates were still reasonable, and I always delivered high quality service. That was until I landed a gig with a large company.

Why China's Social-Credit Systems Are Surprisingly Popular - Bloomberg
It’s chilling, dystopian — and likely to be quite popular. Chinese have already embraced a whole range of private and government systems that gather, aggregate and distribute records of digital and offline behavior. Depicted outside of China as a creepy digital panopticon, this network of so-called social-credit systems is seen within China as a means to generate something the country sorely lacks: trust. For that, perpetual surveillance and the loss of privacy are a small price to pay.

Taboola, Outbrain and the Chum Supply Chain
The Math

In plain English, and note, the following dollar amounts are completely hypothetical:

If I click this chum ad, Yahoo might pay Outbrain 10 cents for the click. Outbrain, as the middleman, would then pay WaPo 3 cents out of that.

Let's say 100 people click the Outbrain Yahoo! Search ad, they end up on the above page that is all search ads. If 2 of those people click on ads for these 5G services, which Google's Keyword Planner tells me are conservatively at $10.00 per click, you can start to get a sense of how this works.

Again, I have no idea the exact numbers here, but in this hypothetical example, for every 100 clicks, Yahoo would make $20, and pay Outbrain $10 of that, who would then pay WaPo $3. It's nearly risk-free and it's genius. And depressing.

Whatever the cause of the Flynn effect, there is evidence that we may have already reached the end of this era – with the rise in IQs stalling and even reversing. If you look at Finland, Norway and Denmark, for instance, the turning point appears to have occurred in the mid-90s, after which average IQs dropped by around 0.2 points a year. That would amount to a seven-point difference between generations.

WeChat is running a natural experiment in human generosity - MIT Technology Review
That’s interesting work that reveals some of the mechanisms behind this kind of prosocial behavior. The next step, of course, is to find ways of making it happen in other circumstances. That may be difficult. Many types of pay-it-forward behavior are hard to monitor, and  Western social-media companies have yet to include WeChat-like functions in their platforms.

Nevertheless, pay-it-forward behavior has spread widely in recent years, promoted by various nonprofit foundations around the world. There is even a film of the same name. The hope is that this behavior can make a substantial positive difference to the way people interact and to society as a whole. Time to act!

Should You Wear White or Black on Hot Days? Here's the Data | WIRED
1. Wear White. A white object is white because it reflects white light, and white light is a combination of all the visible colors. This means that a white shirt (or pants) will reflect most of the light and not get hot. Simple, right?

2. Wear Black. But wait! What about the bedouin in the desert regions of North Africa? They often wear black clothing, and it's super hot there. It seems they wouldn't wear black unless there was an advantage. Maybe the black clothing prevents body heat from reflecting back on the human—thus keeping the body cooler than a white outfit.

The Maker of Gore-Tex Is Experimenting With an Artificial Cornea
There are good reasons for a large, well-known, profitable company to be more cautious than a startup. It has more money and jobs at stake, and more regulation to contend with. But even an unorthodox company needs to keep growing to ensure long-term success. And so Gore, aging star of the management circuit, decided to bring in a guru: the innovation theorist Steve Blank. An entrepreneur who first learned electronics as an Air Force mechanic during the Vietnam War, Blank is popular in Silicon Valley startup circles. His central idea is that small companies (and the big ones that increasingly ape them) shouldn’t wait until they have a polished product to see if the world wants it. Instead, they should go to market early and often, with beta versions, with prototypes, even with mere concepts, and let the resulting customer feedback tell them what the product should be. If you’ve heard the term “lean startup,” you’ve heard about Blank’s ideas.

Why Ikea's innovation lab ditched the open plan office
The new space, which was designed by the local architecture studio Spacon & X, addresses many of the reasons people hate open plan offices, according to recent research on the topic. Chief among these? A lack of visual and acoustic privacy, which can make employees feel distracted and exposed, ultimately reducing productivity. It’s a common refrain in office culture today. Some employees describe “hacking” their desks to force their coworkers to give them the personal space they want. In other cases, offices are installing phone booths to give employees some quiet space.

Strategy needs good words — Martin Weigel
This isn’t about storytelling in advertising. I fucking hate the lazy, self-regarding industry rhetoric about storytelling. I fucking hate all that waffle about storytellers and their caves and campfires, the invocation of unnamed ‘ancient storytellers’, and being told that to arouse emotions and change behaviours advertising 'must' tell stories. A gorilla limbers up and starts playing drums. Coloured balls roll down a hill. A man tells us we could smell like him. Gerbils are shot out of a cannon. A fat kid runs down an empty road. A puppy steals a toilet roll. A bronzed man walks down a beach in Speedos. Martians laugh at humans. A man hurtles through the air in a wing suit. Things get distorted when seen through a bottle. A meerkat talks to camera. Young people gather on a hill and sing. Sofas, kitchens, and carpets are offered at low, low prices. An offer must end. If you think that any of this is a story, you need to think, as Andy Nairn has suggested, very long and very hard about the basic ingredients of a good yarn, before telling the world that we spin them for a living. No, this isn’t about fucking storytelling in advertising. It’s about something much more important.

The iPhone may have room to move higher, however, with 86% of teens anticipating their next phone to be an iPhone, tied for the highest ever in our survey (flat from Fall-18). Android was the runner up with 9%, down from 10% in the fall. The Apple Watch was the top smartwatch among teens, garnering 20% share, with the Samsung Gear next on the list at 2%. 22% of teens plan to purchase an Apple Watch in the next six months, down slightly from 23% in the fall. Overall, we view the survey data as a sign that Apple’s place as the dominant device brand among teens remains well intact.
