Bill Gates says robots that steal human jobs should pay taxes - Recode
“Right now, the human worker who does, say, $50,000 worth of work in a factory, that income is taxed and you get income tax, Social Security tax, all those things,” said Gates in an interview with Quartz’s editor-in-chief Kevin Delaney published today. “If a robot comes in to do the same thing, you’d think that we’d tax the robot at a similar level.”

It’s the business model, stupid – three steps to transform UK public services
First bit good, rest noise. "That is why in 2013, 14 of the top 30 global brands by market worth were platform companies. In fact, platform organisations are so much more efficient in matching demand with supply, and so different from traditionally organised “pipes” organisations, that we talk about them as disrupting entire industries."

The smart businesses are investing in things that will make your clients obsolete | Advertising news | Campaign
Meanwhile, the smart money is moving elsewhere – they’re taking the money you gave them for ads and spending it on things that will end your clients’ industries. Google is spending on robotics and self-driving cars – that’s not an advertising play, that’s a getting-out-of-advertising play.

Russell Davies: If you're a planner, prepare to unleash your creative streak | Advertising news | Campaign
"Personally, for instance, I'm convinced that the most potent and fecund creative unit of the next 20 years is going to be a team of a designer and a strategist. That's who businesses will want solving their problems. Could you do that? Can you talk about affordances and desire paths and say "canonical" a lot?"

An Essay on the New Aesthetic | Beyond The Beyond |
I admired the way that panel behaved. Everyone participating in it (for the record, that was James Bridle, Joanne McNeil, Ben Terrett, Aaron Straup Cope, and Russell Davies) had a clear idea of what the concept meant and why it mattered to them. They were fully-briefed and they sounded plausible.

Plans for £80m new Design Museum unveiled | Art and design |
"If I was a student leaving the RCA today", said Conran, who is putting up £17m for the museum through the Conran Foundation, "I'd try to team up with an engineer from Imperial College and an entrepreneur with a bit of money to makes things of quality and originality."

This is a glimpse of the future, and the big hope is that the new Design Museum will help root intelligent design – along with a new wave of manufacturing – into Britain's curiously design-resistant DNA.

"young readers are precisely the ones who are allergic to paying for things over the internet. But if newspaper readers are older, they will be more willing to pay: this is something we know for a fact from the music industry, where older consumers prefer to pay for their music whereas younger ones prefer to steal it. That’s why Vera Lynn had a number one record last year."

"At Stamen’s core is a commitment to extending our understanding through research projects. Our client work is full of opportunity for invention and discovery, and suggests inspirations beyond the immediate task at hand. Stamen’s close engagement with technology leads us to explore numerous research projects, which have a way of finding applications in the real world. We are neither a research and development lab, nor a straight up design firm.

Linda Stone: When Distraction is Good
I did an informal audit. Sometimes I would check email. Other times, I would pace, get a glass of iced-tea, or walk outside for a few minutes. When I did the latter -- any activity that was quiet, reflective and receptive, I would feel refreshed. I was open to receiving an insight and to being in the moment. When I returned to the project that had momentarily stumped me, I would enjoy new energy. I started calling this receptive distraction. Receptive distraction is any sort of distraction that creates mental space.

When I went to email, however, I would "spin out." That is, I would completely lose track of what I had been working on and get immersed in all sorts of other issues. I started calling this deceptive distraction. I thought I could take a short break and crank out a few emails, but it took longer to do the emails than I thought, and longer to get back into my project afterward.

Instead of importing soldiers into the kingdom to break down its walls, in this horse, we, the people, are stuffed inside and wheeled into the old walls; the gate is shut and we’re welcomed back into the kingdom of controlling media that we left almost a generation ago. There are alternatives. I now see the battle between Apple and Google Android in clearer focus." : "@jeffjarvis Agreed on media apps, but iPad is also the greatest web browsing device ever, IMHO.

Google Plans to Upgrade Old Billboards in Street View
According to a new patent that was just granted to Google, the company could soon extend the reach of its advertising program in Google Maps to Street View. This patent, which was originally filed on July 7, 2008, describes a new system for promoting ads in online mapping applications. In this patent, Google describes how it plans to identify buildings, posters, signs and billboards in these images and give advertisers the ability to replace these images with more up-to-date ads. In addition, Google also seems to plan an advertising auction for unclaimed properties.

Working time - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"The industrial revolution made it possible for a larger segment of the population to work year-round, since this labor was not tied to the season and artificial lighting made it possible to work longer each day. Henry Ford, was an ardent proponent of shorter work hours which he introduced unilaterally in his own factories. Ford stated that he pursued this policy for business rather than humanitarian reasons. He believed that workers (who were also the main consumers of products) needed adequate leisure time to consume products and thus perceive a need to purchase them."

"Statistician I. J.

"We don't feel like we have to cover everything ourselves," said a statement from Michelle Nicolosi, who will lead the site as executive producer. "We'll partner for some content; we won't duplicate what the wire is reporting unless we have something unique to offer; we'll continue to showcase the great content from our 150 or so reader bloggers and we'll link to content partners and competitors to create the best mix of news on our front page.""
