The Program. www.psychologie-heute.de
Zwiespalt zwischen medialer und gelebter Realität seiner Protagonisten. [...] Je weiter der Film in der Erzählung vorankommt, desto mehr verfällt Armstrong seinem eigenen Lügengebäude, seiner perfekten Heldengeschichte. [ case of isolation as with people on Social Media and B, C, D Celebrity types ] [...] The Program erzählt aber nicht nur eine Parabel über den schönen Schein im Sport und über die Heldenverehrung und -gläubigkeit der Millionen Zuschauer. Der Film variiert zugleich auch ein uramerikanisches Thema: Die Lüge ist fundamentaler Teil des American Dream, und der Mythos vom Comeback (was im Grunde auch die Urgeschichte des Sports ist) und der Traum von der Unbesiegbarkeit gehören dazu. //&! Nietzsche on: The Superman youtu.be/bxiKqA-u8y4 - "carving their own path [] suffering as a neccesary component of good things.

Pando: Do SpoonRocket and GoodEggs signal the beginning of the on demand food contraction?
Postmates-- unlike almost all leaders in every ecommerce and mobile commerce segment-- has insisted on growing at a rational pace, while protecting margins. Some would be investors have criticized Postmates for not going on more of a land grab. But other investors I’ve spoken with have been impressed with CEO Bastian Lehman’s restraint in such a free-spending environment. Particularly since Uber has told him -- literally in 2012-- and through its actions recently that it’ll “see (him) in the trenches.” The crazy over-funded trenches lined with subsidy, customer acquisition gold...

Rocket Internet’s Foodpanda Gobbles Up $100M More Led By Goldman Sachs | TechCrunch
[ Smartphone aka connected device aka mini computer. Remote control for your life. ] Yet, clearly investors like Goldman Sachs see huge potential in on-demand verticals in emerging markets, where consumers typically leapfrog wired internet for the mobile internet on smartphones. “We believe that Foodpanda has a tremendous opportunity to cement its emerging markets leadership position in the coming years. It is our expectation that the company innovative, value-added offerings will lead Foodpanda to be the winner in online food delivery within the markets in which it operates,” said Ian Friedman of Goldman Sachs Investment Partners.

Technological Revolutions and Financial Capital: The Dynamics of Bubbles and Golden Ages: Amazon.co.uk: Carlota Perez: 9781843763314: Books
Carlota Perez draws upon Schumpeter's theories of the clustering of innovations to explain why each technological revolution gives rise to a paradigm shift and a "New Economy" and how these "opportunity explosions", focused on specific industries, also lead to the recurrence of financial bubbles and crises. // // imagine in the USA, no welfare state & social safety net, +500.000 self-employed workers on those marketplaces find no jobs because of a deep recession (short-fall of disposable income for convenience services) // bit.ly/1BrAPFJ - In the new world of on-demand everything, you’re either pampered, isolated royalty — or you’re a 21st century servant.
