▶ Noam Chomsky - The Purpose of Education - YouTube
learning to learn on your own. // against indoctrination, dogma, propaganda, // student debt is a trap // exponential impact of technology, augmented intelligence, robotics, software, automation, ... hockey stick move will come/near. // framework to guide your pursuit << understand what u are looking for. otherwise will go in wrong direction. randomness. // nobel prize winners didn't publish most articles in journals, they knew what to look for. capacity to seek what is significant. (defying other peoples dogma) always willing to question whether you are on the right track or not. // education mostly seen as investment into people that create jobs/economic growth. rather than create better human beings. // taking tests can be of use to some extent. taking tests, score well, but have not interest in it, and understand very little and keep very little long-term. // better to learn to understand and explore than to score insular test questions. IT MATTERS WHAT YOU DISCOVER.

Unrest at Nest Labs
Coming from Dropcam, which boasted a much more egalitarian culture, a clash seems all but inevitable. Yet these employees also suggest that the differences between Dropcam and Nest are not just stylistic. One Nest employee says that Nest, which employs between 700 and 800 people, will see roughly double the revenue of Dropcam this year but that Dropcam, which employs 100 people, is growing its revenue eight times as fast, thanks largely to its subscription business. Many employees were reportedly disappointed to sell to Google because “we were firing on all cylinders, with a sensor product about to be released and an outdoor camera about to come out in 2015 and great sales. It just felt like we’d been chopped off at the knees.”

Middelhoff-Prozess: Das Urteil geht uns alle an - SPIEGEL ONLINE
[ Power Corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. ] Macht macht etwas mit Menschen. Das zeigt dieses kleine Experiment. Bereits kleinste Ansätze von Autorität über andere Menschen lassen uns rücksichtsloser werden und erzeugen die Illusion, über den Regeln zu stehen. Und je länger jemand Macht hat, desto größer ist die Gefahr, dass sie ihn deformiert. Mit dem gierigen Griff nach den letzten Keksen fängt es an. Und am Ende lässt man sich auf Firmenkosten per Helikopter zur Arbeit fliegen - weil man ganz selbstverständlich glaubt, das stünde einem zu. [...] Oft reicht für Machtmissbrauch bereits das kleine bisschen Einfluss, das wir auf unseren Partner, unsere Kinder oder auch nur unseren Hund haben.

Topsy Surfaces Hottest Real Time Links, Hits And TweetMeme Head On
Topsy is all about the power of the ReTweet on Twitter. When the service first launched publicly in May we noted that ReTweets are the new currency of the web. And it isnt just the number of retweets that matters (which is subject to large scale spamming efforts). Its the authority of the people doing the retweeting, too.
