the economist
IT IS ONE of the most widely quoted statistics of recent years. No report or conference presentation on the future of work is complete without it. Think-tanks, consultancies, government agencies and news outlets have pointed to it as evidence of an imminent jobs apocalypse.

The Five-Month-Old Storytelling App Galatea Is Already A Multimillion-Dollar Business
The secret behind Galatea's success, at least in part, is the deep well of stories it has to adapt due to the size of the Inkitt platform, which is home to more than 100,000 authors and over one million users. To keep up with demand, the storytelling app has recruited more than 20 Hollywood screenwriters onto its team, all of whom stay busy adapting the best content from Inkitt.

Does the news reflect what we die from? - Our World in Data
I’m always amazed by the disconnect between what we see in the news and the reality of the world around us. As my late friend Hans Rosling would say, we must fight the fear instinct that distorts our perspective: http://bit.ly/2WXgtLP http://bit.ly/2J0FCeF

„Wir werden uns zwischen Parkplätzen und Parks entscheiden müssen“ | NGIN Mobility
„Das gibt es nur rudimentär aus verschiedenen Datenquellen. Aber ich sehe nicht, ob heute viele oder eher wenige Menschen mit dem Fahrrad fahren. Es ist auch eine interessante Frage, wie sich Regen auf die Berliner Mobilität auswirkt. Das kann bisher keiner exakt sagen. Solche Daten aufgeschlüsselt nach verschiedenen Mobilitätsformen und tagesaktuell liegen bisher nicht vor. Um aber den Verkehr der Zukunft faktenbasiert zu gestalten und die öffentliche Infrastruktur optimal zu nutzen, brauchen wir mehr Daten zur urbanen Mobilität.”

NACHGEFRAGT bei Dr. Jan Schilling - GetMobility – Das Mobility Magazin
„Daher brauchen wir vor allem eine Regulierung, die hin zu einem funktionierenden Gesamtsystem wirkt und das Thema Energie- aber auch Flächeneffizienz in den Fokus rückt. Das muss sich dann wie ein roter Faden durch die einzelnen Gesetze ziehen. Dann bekommen wir auch den Formen des Ridepooling und den Einsatz von Technologien wie dem autonomen Fahren, die nicht nur einzelnen Anbietern beim Rosinenpicken nutzen, sondern auch den Bürgern und der Umwelt.

Das Versprechen, dass „Free-floating“ als digitales Geschäftsmodell einen Beitrag zu einem nachhaltigen, klima- und umweltgerechten Verkehr liefern kann, muss man also nochmal hinterfragen.”

Alt-right pipeline: Individual journeys to extremism online | Munn | First Monday
“[T]his paper explores the interaction between this alt-right ‘pipeline’ and the psyche of a user. It suggests three overlapping cognitive phases that occur within this journey: normalization, acclimation, and dehumanization. Finally, the article examines the individual who has reached the end of this journey, an extremist who nevertheless remains largely unregistered within traditional terrorist classifications.”

It does so by using an efficient binary representation for code and data structures, as well as by storing and providing extra information to guide the parser ahead of time.”

The global gig economy: Towards a planetary labour market? | Graham | First Monday
“Building on a five-year study of digital work in some of the world’s economic margins, we show a planetary labour market does not do away with geography, it rather exists to take advantage of it. Digital technologies have been deployed in order to bring into being a labour market that can operate at a planetary scale, and has particular affordances and limitations that rarely bolster both the structural and associational power of workers.”

What are the uses management theories? Are management theories practical? | Yiannis Gabriel
“The concept of practice is multi-faceted. It can indicate a set of actions, informed by knowledge, undertaken on a more or less routine basis (as in ‘practicing medicine, law or management’); alternatively, it may indicate the systematic attempt to acquire a set of skills or competences (as in ‘practicing the violin’); finally, it may be used in a sense which entails its juxtaposition to belief (as in ‘practicing what one preaches’).
What is constant about these meanings is the closeness of practice to the material world of action rather than to the contemplative world of ideas.”
