Naomi Klein: ‘Trump is an idiot, but don’t underestimate how good he is at that’ | Books | The Guardian
One essential ingredient of resistance, she suggests, is to retain a belief in telling and understanding complex stories, keeping faith with narrative.

One of the questions that Klein’s book does not reach a conclusion about is how conscious Trump is of his shock doctrine tactics. Is he a demagogue in the scheming manner of Putin and Erdoğan, or just a useful idiot for the forces around him?

Writing Your Way to Happiness -
The scientific research on the benefits of so-called expressive writing is surprisingly vast. Studies have shown that writing about oneself and personal experiences can improve mood disorders, help reduce symptoms among cancer patients, improve a person’s health after a heart attack, reduce doctor visits and even boost memory. Now researchers are studying whether the power of writing — and then rewriting — your personal story can lead to behavioral changes and improve happiness. The concept is based on the idea that we all have a personal narrative that shapes our view of the world and ourselves. But sometimes our inner voice doesn’t get it completely right. Some researchers believe that by writing and then editing our own stories, we can change our perceptions of ourselves and identify obstacles that stand in the way of better health. It may sound like self-help nonsense, but research suggests the effects are real.

Wirtschaftskrise: Deutsche Wirtschaft mit starkem Export ist anfällig - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Typischerweise produzieren dominante ökonomische Narrative zuerst Illusionen und dann große Probleme. Wo eine Geschichte von Marktteilnehmern, Regulierern und Beobachtern vorbehaltlos akzeptiert wird, ist der Boden bereitet für Irrtümer, die uns am Ende Kopf und Kragen kosten können, wie ich meinem neuen Buch argumentiere. >> Die Politik des billigen Geldes verzerrt die Wirtschaftsstrukturen .... - die deutsche Wirtschaft unterfinanziert & Dass die Politik des ultrabilligen Geldes die Wirtschaftsstrukturen verzerrt, auch hierzulande.

Don’t let the price tag fool you: Snapchat isn’t a late stage company | PandoDaily
[Playing like its Day 1] // [U]nlike companies like Uber, Dropbox, AirBnB, and, in another era, Facebook, Snapchat is just three years old and has raised just a handful of funding rounds from just seven investors up until this point. It’s also never generated a dime of revenue. One thing Snapchat does have (in spades), is users, with the Journal citing new information that the company has 100 million monthly active users – and two-thirds as many daily active users. [...] With massive trends like the global proliferation of mobile, the addressable market for the most successful companies is bigger than ever, meaning that the funding rounds and valuations are rising in lock-step. And with deals like Whatsapp’s recent $19 billion sale to Facebook – though it was generating meaningful revenue at that time – the venture and M&A math at the top of these markets is being governed by its own set of rules. [AKA Possibilities, Business Dreams] "[Ads] without losing its “cool-factor."

august 2014 by asterisk2a | Frank Schirrmacher - Emigration Of Thinking Because Of Algorithms.
... apart from teaching algo's, people have to be taught too - to think about the third factor that puts everything in question. algo's are about the absolute solution to problem x. thus we become blind to factor x, the third factor, the black swan (see GFC, we are not in a bubble, houseprices never reverted back to the mean). Narrative, doubt (zweifel), intuition - vs - algo's outcome. Without narrative, what world is that, where we just have results only? No narrative (linearity), no grammar. What world is that?

At annual narrative conference, storytelling’s power remains as it changes | Poynter.
But at the heart of narrative and the conference “is a concept that informing the public involves telling true stories,” he said. “And stories don’t only involve a sequence of events, but they involve a storyteller.” [...] “Good stories are good stories,” he said, “and we can all learn important lessons in technique from them no matter in what medium they are told.” [...] Journalists now have to be flexible, she said, able to tell strong stories and open to how best those stories work. “When you’re paying attention to what the story is, it will tell you what the right form is,” she said. [...] Narrative endures, he wrote in an email to Poynter, but how it’s delivered has changed.
