Davos debrief Part 1 - by @dealarchitect
"That said, I heard several times where people were tying this back to social media and trust. You can draw a straight line through recent political events … You look at what happened in France. They went from a left-leaning government to a young centrist who had zero governmental experience. The UK had the Brexit."

Andrew Sullivan on the Opioid Epidemic in America
Opioids are just one of the ways Americans are trying to cope with an inhuman new world where everything is flat, where communication is virtual, and where those core elements of human happiness — faith, family, community — seem to elude so many. Until we resolve these deeper social, cultural, and psychological problems, until we discover a new meaning or reimagine our old religion or reinvent our way of life, the poppy will flourish.

Finding the Exhaust Ports | Jon Gold’s blog
This went a little bit pear-shaped when the people who read Ayn Rand with a straight face realized that these things should probably make unreasonable amounts of money and that rather than charging people to use services they loved, it would be much better to figure out ways to get them hooked on services and then sell their attention to advertisers. Why pay with the United States dollar when you could pay with your life?

In 2018 the internet is conflated as a few very behemoth properties who happen to be waging war over each second of our lives.

Microsoft Business Applications Analyst Forum – a scorecard - by @dealarchitect
"The event was very well paced and covered wide ground with slides, panels and demos. From a business process perspective, CRM dominated especially with recent moves with LinkedIn and partnering with Adobe. That was understandable because the audience was heavily skewed towards CRM analysts."

structural changes don't come from individuals and expecting ppl to 'diet' on social media is unrealistic and can draw corollaries to the struggles of democracy

Adam Smith, David Hume, Liberalism, and Esotericism - Call for Papers - Elsevier

A very good economics journal--famously an outlet for rigorous, outside the box thinking--is publishing a special issue on hidden meanings in the work of two of the world's greatest thinkers.

Another sign the new Straussian age is upon us: Bayesians update accordingly!

GE and Digital Transformations: Dont jump to conclusions - by @dealarchitect
"Go ahead and malign GE. Short its stock. But don’t ignore what it has shown us as possible when it comes to Big D. If you get timid and go with small d projects you will make the same mistake so many companies made in the 90s. Instead of proper process reengineering we took the easy way out – so called best practices embedded in packaged software. We ended up with massive overruns, bloated costs but not much better processes. With small d, yes you will feel good about being in the cloud, but your products, field service and business models will not have evolved."

How Facebook Is Killing Comedy - Splitsider
Facebook has created a centrally designed internet. It’s a lamer, shittier looking internet. It’s just not as cool as an internet that is a big, chaotic space filled with tons of independently operating websites who are able to make a living because they make something cool that people want to see.
