Mark Surman: Non Profits in the Digital Age
The heart of social change is collaboration around a common goal, which the shift to the connected age offers in spades. The Mozilla Foundation's Mark Surman sits down with Steve Paikin to discuss applying open source principles to philanthropy and Mozilla's initiative to boost global web literacy. // Internet. You don't need permission. (book by alexis ohanian, without their permission) // is there more trolling, bullying and hate? or is it because it's so much easier to surface and less friction and non-facing confrontation. // Internet = more agency. not just consuming. linear programming. // digital literacy! resources for teachers! >> digital-literacy.org !? //

A Farewell To Jobs | TechCrunch
[the downside of making yourself hard to replace is, that its equally hard to move upwards the career ladder] the gig economy tends to reduce workers to fungible, replaceable cogs. Workers devalued in that way inevitably make less money and receive fewer benefits. When you can be more easily replaced, you become, pretty much by definition, less valuable; and technology is making the process of replacing one laborer with another increasingly frictionless. [...] in principle, both nurses and engineers are reasonably fungible. Short-term nursing contracts are plentiful, as are short-term engineering projects. One good iOS developer can easily replace another; good developers write code that’s easy for others to understand, maintain and expand. [...] an excess of supply relative to demand. [... thus the need for universal basic income / welfare state.] [...] spreading work more evenly among those who want it. [Borderless Flat World] - http://techcrunch.com/tag/peak-jobs/

Collaboration Summit 2015 - Software at Scale - Stephen O'Grady, RedMonk - YouTube
http://youtu.be/5iW8GNL09E4?t=20m50s >> software becomes free, hardware cost lower and lower. "Software becomes harder to sell." Like Microsoft ... still businesses buy Windows and other Proprietary software. Microsoft can't compete with Apple on Mobile Software. Still Oracle (proprietary) still grows it's headline number. But now, less then half of it comes from selling new licences to businesses (38c/dollar, rest is revenue from support of existing licences). [X]aaS is an emerging business opportunity to sell SW that is fully or partially Open Source. Talk about portability; Google App Engine and its DB schema. // &!

Will Somebody Finally Buy Rackspace, Please | TechCrunch
In today’s cloud market climate, a mid-tier player like Rackspace has been caught between a rock and a hard place for some time, squeezed in an infrastructure service market dominated by big players like Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure. As these players engage in a fight to the bottom in an escalating pricing war, a company like Rackspace whose main focus is infrastructure services finds it increasingly difficult to compete, especially when these other companies can cover their losses with more profitable parts of their organizations. [...] Faced with that kind of landscape, Rackspace walked away from the IaaS [ Infrastructure as a Service ] market altogether last month, moving to what they were calling a managed approach. In other words, they would help companies manage their cloud services.
