Richard Rogers: ‘I would never dream of doing the Pompidou now’ | Art and design | The Guardian
"He devotes too much energy to bemoaning the lack of vision of the supposed enemies of modern architecture, and not enough to addressing the matter of his own regrets (though when I ask him about this, he says: “I don’t know that I do regret a major piece of my professional life.”)"

Being a British Citizen – Alexandra D-S – Medium
"Thursday nights are for a drink in the pub with work friends, well probably more than one. Fridays are spent hungover because being British, you know that Fridays are a fraud. Nothing of any real importance happens on a Friday."

Tim O'Reilly: The Oracle of Silicon Valley |
"Money is like gasoline during a road trip," he says. "You don't want to run out of gas on your trip, but you're not doing a tour of gas stations. You have to pay attention to money, but it shouldn't be about the money."

Amazon's AWS cloud business is reshaping how the financial services industry works — Quartz
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the biggest provider of cloud computing, which has “massively” lowered barriers to entry for financial startups, according to Antony Jenkins, the former Barclays CEO turned fintech entrepreneur. He says tech firms used to raise millions of dollars just to buy servers; now, people who want to take on banks can use the tech giant’s cloud to quickly set up systems.
An example is Starling Bank, which is built on Amazon’s cloud. CEO Anne Boden—previously a technology executive at Royal Bank of Scotland—says processes that once cost $30 million can be done for $30,000, thanks in large part to the cloud. Likewise, 140 people can implement what used to require ten times as many employees

What is your biggest regret? Here are people's devastatingly honest answers | Life and style | The Guardian
"The most debilitating enemy you can have is your own fear. Own your mistakes but don’t dwell on self-blame. Be confident. Learn from your teachers – you’ll never regret that. Take risks – they may go wrong but it’s better than regretting not having tried. Ring your mother, be kind to everyone"

Silicon Valley’s Secrets Are Hiding in Marc Andreessen’s Library | WIRED
"In 1908, the country’s nine largest filmmakers formed the Movie Picture Patents Company, insisting that no one else could make movies because they controlled the patents on the original movie camera, co-created by Thomas Edison at his lab in New Jersey. The patents belonged to Edison, and he backed the Patents Company. So a new wave of filmmakers moved to the West Coast, where the courts were less friendly to Edison. Hollywood became a place to make movies in part because it was so sunny—you could film outdoors more often and with fewer lights—but also because it was so far away from New Jersey."

Trump has taken us to the brink of nuclear war. Does he know when to stop? | Opinion | The Guardian
"This was the moment many Americans, along with the rest of the world, feared. This – precisely this – was what alarmed us most about the prospect of Donald Trump becoming president of the United States. Not that he would hire useless people or that he would tweet all day or use high office to enrich himself and his family or that he’d be cruel, bigoted and divisive – though those were all concerns. No, the chief anxiety provoked by the notion of Trump in the White House was this: that he was sufficiently reckless, impulsive and stupid to bring the world to the brink of nuclear war."
