Calm down, tech journalists: It’s okay if you don’t use Snapchat | PandoDaily
artificial limitations is the trend that emerged late out of the freeze box that was SV 2001-2005/6 ... artificial limitations ie 140 charachters, ephemeral content, <10s videos, Yo, (photo)filters, ... and anonymity within the echo chamber made Secret --- and the real world broke the idea. Hot deals emerge quickly within an echo chamber, even if it doesn't end world hunger or make it rain. // This is a new phase of SV companies and tech, question is, can anyone of these be sustainable long-term world wide as big and far as they are shouting (out of the echochamber) // as fascinated as the press at large is right now, there could be, looming on the horizon, a backlash from the general population, as their livelihoods are deeply affected (work, social, democracy, ... uncertainty. people don't like uncertainty and insecurity.)

january 2015 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?

Pressure to keep up with technological progress towards ... ~near singularity~ ... keeping up with the help of implants. Is that ethical? human rights is about bodily integrity. But pressures will mound eventually. Gesellschaftlicher zwang / societal force / pressure. That we have to optimise ourselves constantly. Backlash - People will seek out to be accepted how and who they are, unoptimized, unable to keep up with the attention demand and demand to process incoming data. - +

Why I’m Bullish on the News - POLITICO Magazine
Go maximum mass or maximum specific. [...] News organizations are also going to have to mix and match revenue models. I see eight obvious ones: advertising, subscriptions, premium content, events, cross-media promotion, crowdfunding, micropayments and philanthropy. [...] Today, this same science culture, this civilization of engineers and math, is again on the rise. And to many, it feels like it’s running away with the future. [...] The point is that, for people who aren’t deep into math and science and technology, it is going to get far harder to understand the world going forward. || + + +

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.

Hirnstrme: Computerrekonstruiert Filme ausGedanken - SPIEGEL ONLINE - Nachrichten - Wissenschaft
Die zentrale Frage aber lautet: Werden Computer eines Tages in der Lage sein, dem Gehirn auch die Bilder aus Erinnerungen und Träumen zu entreißen? "Ich glaube, dass das möglich sein wird", sagte Gallant SPIEGEL ONLINE. "Das ist nur eine Frage der Zeit." Die Grenzen bestünden derzeit nur in der Qualität der Hirnaktivitätsmessungen und der Computermodelle sowie in der Rechenkapazität.
