The First Phone Jony Ive Ever Designed - YouTube
7:30 form implies function; tableness & then came the silicon chip. a phone could look like a banana&still function like a phone. &culture/society is in there too as well as learned behaviour&usage of ie the table form. || THUS how do u design a button, layout, functionality or UI/UX, with half the usual buttons & no deep menus on a smart phone screen? u let them swipe the entire screen left, right, up, down. all while you adhere 2 "don't show me." || if something is designed well & u might hv borrowed some components/ideas elsewhere from proven concepts (turning pages), people dont need 2 be shown. users apply learned behaviour from existing design concepts, get immediate feedback that tells them u did it right or no you have to do it this way, bc there is no other way. there are no 3, 4 options to try out X, there are only two, right & wrong. & and wrong shows/nudges them to the right use of X. || Anticomplexity, -friction, communicating without words, medium is the message (ie led)

ideas on paper are nothing. test them out. if it has traction - got to go all in. wear it as badge of honour, if your idea, that you put from paper into the real world, fails. its part of your body of work. it's nothing personal. [...] 1:04 hrs in "it's business, it is nothing personal." ... 1:06:25 - Lesson: If something has critical mass (centrifugal mass, has its own gravitational field ... pull), it can not be stopped even when mistakes are made; Fail Whale (Twitter Technical Fails and management-internal fights etc, Facebook and Privacy, Google and Privacy Yahoo! (mismanagement) and it's unsexy non-hip non-attractive brand, and uninspiring front-page). ... Further in: Focus has to be on product, to reach scale. Product centric CEO's (Larry Page, Dick Costolo, Zuckerberg) don't put a big banner ad on the front-page of their product. it ruins the user experience and adds no value. it subtracts value. where is the value proposition of that? + http://youtu.be/HtRfHASjtcA

SolarCity's Chairman Elon Musk annouces it will buy solar panel maker Silveo
Without decisive action to lay the groundwork today, the massive volume of affordable, high efficiency panels needed for unsubsidized solar power to outcompete fossil fuel grid power simply will not be there when it is needed,” according to the blog post penned by SolarCity Chairman Elon Musk and the two co-founders, Peter Rive and Lyndon Rive. [...] “The timing is right to make an acquisition and get into advanced solar panel manufacturing. If we don’t do this, then we thought there’s a risk of not being able to have the solar panels we need to expand the business in the long term,” Elon Musk said on the conference call. [...] In both cases, Musk’s goal is to make sure that the components critical to his vision of the future — electric cars and solar energy — are available and cheap enough to beat fossil fuels.

Path’s kiss of death compliment: “It’s hugely popular in Indonesia!” | PandoDaily
[+ Raising Too Much Money for a too small product and market!?] It may be the beginning of the end for a company that was once offered $125 million to sell to Google – in a high priced acquihire – less that six months into its existence and before the company even launched. [...] So, what went so wrong? The answer seems to be a combination of poor execution, an excessive focus on design over utility (not to mention differentiation), and a keeping up with the Joneses desire to spend lavishly. [...] The company has always been a reflection of Morin, including his obsessiveness over design and his proclivity for spending. For example, Path reportedly built its team with a designer to developer ratio of 1-to-2, as compared to an industry average that is likely closer to 1-to-20 (or even lower, although precise figures are hard to come by). [[ ~ Spending for the wrong means to an end. ~ ]] [[ ... Inside the bubble that is the Valley and the Fetish ... ]]

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. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Sarah+Spiekermann - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8O18Q2CeXig + https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddK1ui1UUys
