Banner “Fraud” Doesn’t Matter | Hacker News "A Message from brand marketers to publishers [...] We use banners as little billboards now. We use them strategically as incredibly cheap repeat impressions for brand awareness. We know many people don’t see them, we know most people don’t see them. Thats okay. We use them accordingly & the cost has been adjusted down to make them a perfectly great buy even though most people dont see them. [...] It’s an indicator to us that you don’t get this by the fact you’re still always talking about clickthrough, which was kind of BS when you first sold it to us twenty years ago, and doubly the case now." [ CPM will go lower, fundamentals point in that direction, Social Media & other future forms of advertising will fill in the lower CPM rates overall. Thus pressuring business models reliant on pageviews even more 2 increase pageviews as the revenue average per pageview declines. Thus u have 2 question which consumer product (entertainment & else) business model do you choose!?

Slack's massive funding round is everything amazing and insane about the startup bubble | The Verge
[ COMPETITION 4 HOT DEAL, Private Market (Private Equity) highest bidder wins. Thus to get in, people make compromises. ] "It’s the best time ever in the history of the world, or at least the tech industry, to raise money. Will it get better? It’s possible. Six months from now, we might say darn it, we should have waited," Butterfield told me. "On the other hand it’s a pretty amazing deal. In a certain respect it would have been irresponsible not to take it for five-ish percent of the company on clean terms." For those not familiar with venture capital, Butterfield means he only had to give up a small percentage of the ownership in Slack to get this new funding, and that the deal didn't come with a bunch of crazy terms which favored the new investors. [...] [ also mentioned 20-30% rise in HR cost compared to last year! << SF/SV becomes prohibitive for bootstrapping & even for Seed/Angel backed start-ups w 2-5m. Run out of time (MVP fit) bc run out of cash bc high local burn rate. ]

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] -

Jaron Lanier: "Wem gehört die Zukunft?" | Kulturjournal | NDR - YouTube
only those who have the date, profit from the data. middle class jobs will be lost as software and automation more and more takes over other peoples jobs. 3D printing, transportation, - user data should cost money - it is valuable. Companies will appear that offer people money to share their data, their online lives, in return for money. Less people around the globe needed to produce/make stuff people around the world need. means less menial, task oriented jobs to go around. thus the future is in software, problem solving and creativity. in the next 5 years, Amazon will have only roboters in its warehouses. no people packing the packages.
