What is the 'gig' economy? | FT Comment - YouTube
human capital, HR - as cost center. // trading short-term competitiveness (kick ppl of the book according to demand) but trade it in aggregate with long-term social deprivation and skill gaps and underinvestment. because of dog eat dog mentality than you are incentivised to compete on price, because it is the easiest and you are able to to it with those neoliberal labour reforms in Europe. Don't compete with Amazon on price. Don't compete with China/Asia on price. Stupid.

K Swisher "A stunt, but a good one" + - Frank Warren believes that new anonymous secret-sharing apps such as Secret and Whisper are unoriginal and potentially dangerous. [...] today anonymous communication services have become, to the surprise of many, big business. In July, the app Secret, popular within the San Francisco tech community, || Anonymous apps can learn from Chinese censors. No one knows how to scale real time "moderation" better than China. - << if a community can't police itself. it isn't a community. it is a random bunch of people (mostly priviledged & entitled white male) with ego's and status anxiety, residing in SV/SF under the eyes of the Patriarchy (VC's/Valley Boy's/ppl calling themselves "Elite") and scoop hungry wannabe tech journalists. || + Pando's Sarah Lacy
