Howard Stern Just Sent Ad Blocking Mainstream. — Verses From The Abstract — Medium
mass market = commodity business = zero marginal cost/economic of abundance = low quality = value only short-term &! - UPDATE: This is the App Store trending searches on the morning of Wednesday, August 26th. There is definitely a Stern effect: [...] Heck, if Howard Stern can convince people to buy Squatty Pottys, he can convince them to install ad blocking extensions. Are ads even the future of advertising? Let’s figure out what the future actually is while we still have some runway. In the meantime, let’s make advertising that actually provides value to people while we still can. // // native, brand awareness, not annoying, value creation - added value, shared economic interest ads !!!

SOCIOLOGY - Alexis De Tocqueville - YouTube
// money is not way to judge a life and value of a life and person. status is no reference point for you in society at large. and no way to submit to any person. // expectations and being let down - election campaign promises. // true freedom of mind, critical thinking, // certain pains need to be expected. stoic way of life. ... democracy can be awful and messy. because you give ultimate authority to everyone. << Open Source too.

Reddit's fate hangs in the balance as revolt against CEO makes waves | Technology | The Guardian
While more than 200,000 Redditors want Ellen Pao to resign, readers are jumping ship to budding competitor sites as top brass pushes to go mainstream [...] Redditors – as users are called – have accused the site of increasingly trying to monetize its popularity, and it appears their sentiments came to a head last Thursday, when Reddit’s popular director of talent, Victoria Taylor, was let go from her post. [...] a company torn between catering to commercial interests, and an obsession with giving voice to every possible perspective. [...] But some have suggested that the latest revolt is a flashpoint in a wider clash of cultures. The web’s largest agglomeration of niche enthusiasts provides a portal for people to make friends and enemies in a wide range of different communities, including some less reputable forums that have come under increasing scrutiny. &! - Memo to VCs: Not every site with gargantuan traffic is destined to be a billion dollar public company

BBC Two - Mind the Gap: London v the Rest
Polarising UK. (1) (Port is a 50 year bet that London and surroundings will thrive further. Keeping Supply chains as tight as possible.) Most great careers are in the City. 58% of jobs need/have graduate qualification. City/London networking economics. Economies of Agglomeration. Proximity fuels productivity. + Connection to the world of business. Once you've attracted good neighbours, it attracts more people and more businesses to be there too. Self-fulfilling, once you reach critical mass, Tipping Point. Cotton Mills in the 19th century were build where the cotton planted. Corporations want to locate parts of their business were the resources are - the talent pool. And for data centres, where cheap energy is. // UK is now a two speed economy. London followed by the other big cities, followed by the rest of UK, rural UK. // There is no formula of success that other cities less prosperous could copy from London. It evolves. Bottom up growth.
